Thermaltake Core X71 Review

Thermaltake Core X71 is a full tower ATX case that stands 677mm tall. That’s huge. The easiest way to get an idea about Core X71 is to imagine that Thermaltake has taken a tower case such as Core V51 or Suppressor F51 and then stood it on a pedestal. The …

Corsair Carbide 400Q Review

Corsair Carbide 400Q is the junior sibling of the Carbide 600C we saw quite recently. The Q suffix stands for Quiet and C for Clear (i.e. it has a windowed panel) and both Carbide 400 and 600 come in Q and C variants. Unboxing the 400Q reveals a case that …

Fractal Design Core 500 Review

There are two distinctly different ways to approach the Mini-ITX Fractal Design Core 500. The first is to pack out the drive bays with a ton of storage (optical drive, three hard drives and three SSD) to effectively convert your tiny PC into a server or NAS. The second approach …

NZXT H440 New Edition Review

NZXT has updated its enthusiast H440 case. This new version goes by the unimaginative name ‘H440 New Edition’ however the list of changes from the original H440 is very encouraging: All black matte colour, Scratch resistant paintwork, Tinted black window (with optional no window version), Increased height & depth with …

Aerocool Aero 800 Case Review

Aerocool has a history of delivering budget cases but the Aero-800 is far and away the cheapest case we have seen to date. It’s a steel chassis with blue painted finish on the top and side panels – the window is smoked and the finishing touches are a plastic front …

Corsair Carbide 600C Review

Corsair Carbide 600C (Clear) or Q (Quiet) adopts a novel design that effectively turns your PC ‘upside down’. The easiest way to understand what Corsair has done is to look at our photos and watch the video where you will see the motherboard mounts on the ‘wrong’ side of the …

NZXT S340 Special Edition Review

Listen up American readers as we tell you about the NZXT S340 Razer Special Edition. Brits and Europeans will instead have to accept the somewhat obscure ‘NZXT S340 Special Edition’ naming, which is apparently something to do with licensing rights to the Razer name. Yes, we didn’t leave ‘Razer’ out …

SilverStone FTZ01B Review

You can think of the SilverStone FTZ01 as a member of the Fortress Series Z with a B suffix for Black or S for Silver. FTZ01 is described as a ‘premium slim form factor case with superior thermodynamics and construction’ and while these claims are correct they tell only part …

Antec Signature S10 E-ATX Review

Antec’s new Signature S10 is a big, tall, imposing E-ATX case with a number of interesting features. In a radical departure from the norm the chassis is organised as three chambers. The lower chamber contains the power supply and five 2.5-inch drive bays and is separated from the main chamber …

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Review

Phanteks has delivered the latest version of its aluminium Evolv chassis in a mainstream ATX form factor that stands a compact 495mm high and 510mm deep. It is notably smaller than, say, the Enthoo Pro which is also ATX. Pull off the aluminium front panel, release the full length dust …

Aerocool Aero 1000 Chassis Review

Aerocool has trodden a careful path with its new Aero-1000 ATX case. This steel chassis looks understated with its black and white mono colour scheme and it is clear that Aerocool has worked hard to appeal to enthusiasts while keeping the price low. At the front of the chassis we …

SilverStone Precision PS11B-Q Review

SilverStone supplies its Precision PS11B case in two forms. This Q-suffix version is Quiet while the W has a Window. There are other differences as the Q has a solid front panel with vents at the sides and a fair amount of foam material to deaden sound inside while the …

In-Win 904 Plus Chassis Review

And the award for ‘Novel ATX PC case 2015 goes to … In-Win for the 904Plus.’ That might seem premature as we have only reached April but the odds of another radical design that will top the 904 Plus are slender to non-existent. In-Win has updated the 904 very slightly …

AeroCool GT-A Chassis Review

First appearances matter, and the styling of the Aerocool GT-A will easily distract you from the fact that this is a budget ATX case. The appearance of this white version with a blue LED fan at the front is eye-catching with its flared wheel arch thing at the front and …

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Review

Antec P380 Case review

A year back we reviewed the Antec Nineteen Hundred which was big, bold and expensive. While the styling of the Nineteen Hundred was a success the fixed drive towers were a considerable problem and there was clearly scope for improvement. This is is the cue to introduce the P380 which …

InWin 703 Chassis Review

The In-Win 703 is as far removed from the In-Win D Frame Mini as one PC case can be from another, which just goes to show that it is a mug’s game to have preconceptions about any new product before you open the box. In essence the InWin 703 is …
