Ltd announces the PC -O9 chassis, the latest in its esteemed O-series open-air chassis. This new mid tower case features a distinctive dual-compartment design: one side uses all aluminum panels, the other is wreathed in beautiful tempered glass. Two Faces, Glass and Aluminum The PC-O9 is split into two sections for optimized cooling, organization, and style – it’s like two different cases fused together as conjoined twins. Similar to the PC-O8, the primary compartment uses two large tempered glass panels spanning the sides of the case to showcase the motherboard, VGA cards, and overall flashiest components. The secondary compartment houses the PSU and drive rack in a windowless aluminum exposure.

No other case lets builders isolate different components into organized compartments to this degree. Lian Li’s Best Chassis for Water Cooling The PC-O9 has the most flexible cooling layout in its series. It includes five 120mm fans – two exhaust fans behind the drive cage and three intake fans mounted between the compartments.

PHANTEKS’ Power Combo has more Ramifications than you’re Realizing!

“Dual sockets, CrossfireX, SLI, Raid 0… Why not PSUs?” That seems to be the the train of thought PHANTEKS was thinking when they announced the new Power Combo releasing this month. At first, it seems really exciting to be able to combine two power sources to work together as one. On further thought, the practicality behind the Power Combo begins to feel a bit contrived. The actual circumstances where a user can put two power supplies to work on one system are pretty limited, however, I believe the Power combo can open a whole new approach to how future systems are built. In order to see the full potential of the Power Combo, we have to look at several industry changes that are taking place right now. The first and most obvious change is DirectX 12. I’ve long been a proponent of dual GPUs in my systems. Practicality has nothing to do with it. If I have $500 to spend on an upgrade, I’ll always have two $250 cards in CrossfireX or SLI because I love the look of two cards in my system. This comes with some heavy pre-planning though, because I need the rest of my system to be able to handle the extra load. Previous APIs didn’t allow for hardly any variation when it came to matching two graphics cards, so it was best to buy both GPUs as close as possible to each other. DirectX 12 on the other hand, is beginning to shine light on the possibility of upgrading to a stronger GPU, while keeping your old one around for a bit of extra power, since th...

Rosewill Nighthawk (3)

ROSEWILL Nighthawk 117 Review

Introduction It’s time to spread our wings and fly! The analogy only goes as far as the title ROSEWILL is using for one of their newer cases, but I thought it sounded fun and inspirational. ROSEWILL has been in the background of the hardware industry for what seems like forever now. Sure, they may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of a computer case or gaming peripherals, but they’ve always offered compelling choices for those who want a solid product but can’t afford a top brand. The Nighthawk 117 doesn’t look to be an exception here, but before we look at it in further detail, let’s look a bit closer at ROSEWILL’s philosophy. Rosewill’s mission is to consistently deliver reliable, high quality PC gaming, IT hardware and home products through leading innovation and long-lasting relationships.

The Dune Case is a Smooth take on Mini-ITX

When I see the term Kickstarter, I default to a new video game getting made. I get it, Kickstarters are for much more than just games, but it seems to be the only time I really notice them is with a new game. (I’m looking at you Yooka-Laylee!) So I was a bit surprised to see a computer case trying to get launched off a Kickstarter. I was also surprised to see a case that’s round, but I think the Dune Case is on to something pretty cool looking. The best thing about the Dune Case is that it looks more like an air purifier than a computer case. This isn’t to pick on the case, but makes the point of how well it would fit in a living room decor. The cylindrical shape is something that you would normally see with numerous electronic devices that are designed to be used next to the sofa or the entertainment center. While that’s great for people who care about decorating, what intrigues the enthusiast inside of me is the airflow design. By using a 140mm fan in the top, the air is pulled from the bottom of the case and easily vented out the top like a tiny wind tunnel. The only thing I wish it had was a second fan on the bottom to help push the air through, but the PSU location would make that a bit tricky. The Dune Case is certainly something I would like to use for a home theater setup, especially since I cut the cable/dish chord a long time ago. My only concern for this case is that because it’s a Kickstarter, it has to swim on it’s own which...
