  1. Cases with curves are nothing new to PC cases. Manufacturers have turned to curves to break up the classic beige box and add appeal for end users for many years now. There have been cases with sweeping curves but nothing quite like NZXT’s new mITX case, the Manta. Teased at CES 2016, the Manta is all about curves, featuring not only curved edges, but curved surfaces as well. The case is as sleek as they come and it’s easy to see the sports automotive influence. As I mentioned, the case is mITX but by no means is it small. I’m hoping to coin the phrase “Large Small Form Factor” here guys, help me out with that... Check out the full article HERE.
  2. With smaller ITX form factor gaining traction in the last few years, it’s no surprise to see more cases geared toward these systems, hitting the market. Whether you’re after a portable LAN system, a home theater PC, or something to save desk space, the appeal of small form factor cases is real. Trouble lies in trying to cram a full size graphics card into a small case. Sure you want it small, but you want powerful too. Silverstone’s Raven Z line is built for that challenge, and the RVZ02 is the case for the job. Check out the full article HERE.
  3. Every once in a while a new case manufacturer comes along, one that specifically tailors to enthusiasts and our niche of the market. Hex Gear is a collaboration between Nate of E22 and Hans (p0Pe), both well known modders and enthusiasts in the little corner of our PC world. As one would expect with the Hex Gear name, the mATX case design features a plethora of hexes creating a chic look that can be customized be colored inserts. The baseline R40 is offered in white or black and can be outfitted with several custom options such as feet over the included pedestal base and additional internal mounting options for pumps, reservoirs and fan controllers. Radiator support includes and 240 on the bottom and a 360 mount on the roof. The R40 looks like a strong option for those looking for a custom case to start with, I look forward to seeing what else they come out with. No official word on pricing yet but Nate and Hans have stated under £200, not sure what that will look like in the US. Check them out at: http://www.hex-gear.com/ There are a few Hex Gear logs popping up, check out Zoyadog's log here: http://themodzoo.com/forum/topic/1962-hex-gear-project-odyssey-by-zoyadog/ Here are some pics and specs: Tech Specs- Materials: Aluminium | Steel | Acrylic – Colours Available: Black | White – Dimensions(WxDxH): 241.5 x 483 x 415 – Motherboard form factor: mATX – 3.5” Drives: 2 – 2.5” Drives: 3 – Cooling: 6 x 120mm (3 x top 1 x rear 2 x bottom) – PCI Slots: 5 – Suitable for air or watercooling CONTENTS – Screws and fixings – 1 x black vandal switch – Motherboard standoffs – Instruction manual – Hex keys – 90deg IEC adapter
  4. In this episode of "Keeping up with the NZXT H440", Cooler Master recently announced two new cases: the Silencio 652S and the Silencio 352. Both draw heavily from a minimalist design featuring a clean exterior. With a focus on quietness, both the mid tower 652S and the mini tower 352 feature sound-dampening panels and CM's new Silencio fans. Both do have at least one 5.25" bay and I have to say I like the overall look. More info at Cooler Master's press release and the product pages: Press Release Silencio 652S Silencio 352
  5. Capitalizing on the popularity of other sleek and minimalist cases on the market at the moment--see NZXT--InWin has announced two new cases to round out their offerings in the department. While the 707 and 703 aren't the exotic cases from the company's concept line I love, they should offer a nice option to the gamer that wants a sleeker case. Modders I think will also find plenty of case to cut into here. Both are available in a black/red or white/black, no word on pricing or release date yet. InWIn's product pages on the cases: http://www.inwin-style.com/en/goods.php?act=view&id=707 http://www.inwin-style.com/en/goods.php?act=view&id=703 Here's a quick glance at the full tower 707: And the spec sheet: The 703, the mid tower option: Specs:
  6. Announced at Computex this year, be quiet! introduced it's first case, a mid tower. Now revealed as the Silent Base 800, the noise dampened case will look to go live in October. It doesn't look like this will crush the water cooling competition out there but has a strong emphasis on quiet function. Available in black with black, silver or orange accents. Quality looks decent for $129 and reminds me of the Cosmos with its feet.

  7. Continuing with their line of aluminum Legacy cases, Rosewill is coming out with its W1 mITX case soon. The case looks pretty decent with a 140mm fan in the front and rear and up to a 280 combo in the ceiling. Provided it's aluminum, this might be a fun case to cut into. Rumors are a review is imminent B) Link to Rosewill's page about the W1: http://www.rosewill.com/landingpage/legacy_w1/
  8. Tuesday Corsair announced a new budget line of cases, the Carbide SPEC line. With all three cases coming in at $50-$60 it's hard to argue with the price tag but design-wise these cases seem to let down many Corsair fans and look pretty generic when compared to other cases out there. To be honest I have a tough time telling 01 and 02 apart. 03 is the best looking out of the bunch I think, the front design is appealing to me over the others. Thoughts?
