Cougar Makes a Huge Leap with Panzer Evo RGB Case

The Panzer Evo RGB makes a statement that says it's trying to lead the case market, rather than merely joining it. Cougar has an excellent looking design with tons of features, including tons of building space and great RGB lighting. The price seems excellent for the amount of features.



Gamdias Astrape P1 650W PSU Review

The power of the Greek gods not only makes for great performance, but amazing beauty. The Gamdias Astrape P1 PSU is one of the greatest looking power supplies to date. The only thing holding it back is a high price, and hopefully time will improve that to more competitive levels.



I Like the FSP CMT520, but Companies Need to Fix Their RGB Advertising

The latest from FSP looks like a great case. The CMT520 has a lot of building room and some solid tempered glass features. While the RGB lighting looks nice, it's a bit misleading. This chassis only seems to support one RGB color at a time, rather than addressable RGB lighting.



SilverStone ML09B Mini-ITX HTPC Case Review and Recording Project

The SIlverStone Milo Series ML09B Mini-ITX HTPC does a great job in the HTPC case market. The layout is functional and the price is excellent. If you're trying to build a specialized system in this chassis, you may have to work around some inconveniences and the built in fan could really use a PWM connection.



Raijintek Zofos Evo, a Beautiful Monster of a Case

Raijintek brings an impressive new case design to the market with the Zofos Evo. When we say it's a monster, it's because of the massive EE-ATX design it has. In spite of the size of the chassis, it manages to have a very elegant design and silent features.



Abko Ncore – Strange Name, Awesome Aura Case

Abko Ncore is an overseas company that might be bringing more products to the US. The Aura is an interesting PC case that not only has RGB lighting, but tons of radiator and fan support. It could also have a huge benefit in providing exception graphics card cooling. No official news on the US market yet.



Gamdias Showed Off Epic RGB PSUs at CES 2018

Gamdias may not be the big name in the PSU industry, but they probably should be. Their RGB power supplies were shown off at CES and they look excellent. It's not just the lighting, but the design on the grill that stands out as unique among similar components.



Sharkoon – Strange Name, a Bit Budgety, Nice PC Case Idea

If Skiller sounds like a bad pun, you're probably right. On the plus side, the painted interiors of Sharkoon's PC cases are a great idea that stands out in the chassis market. You will have to overlook some budgety aspects of the case, but at least it has some decent looking build space.



This is How you Up the Ante! Deepcool Introduces Ark 90 Full Tower PC Case

Improving on previous case designs can get boring. How many models get a tempered glass upgrade, with everything else about the chassis staying the same? Deepcool introduced a completely new design with the Ark 90 and while it continues to have an included CLC, it stands out as fresh.



The Drop-in Rad Bracket on NZXT H700i isn’t Quite what I Want

NZXT is still a great case designer and while there is sure to be a lot to love with the H700i, the chassis is really missing the mark in a couple of points. Not only is the glass panel still using four thumbscrews instead of a hinge and latch, but the radiator bracket doesn't seem to ease CLC installs enough.



Oh Boy! Enermax Showed me More Shinies

Enermax had quite a few products to show off at CES 2018. There was the Saberay PC Case, MaxTytan Titanium and Revolution Gold PSUs, T.B. RGB and Silence Case Fans, and LiqFusion and LiqTech CPU Coolers, Some of the best feature highlights are one click latches for glass panels and a really strong pump flow rate.



Phanteks Announces Revolt X and Revolt Pro, Dual System or Dual PSU

Pick your poison! You can have one PSU power two systems, or two power supplies for one computer. Either way, Phanteks adds an interesting innovation to the PSU market. Particularly for PCs that add extra graphics cards, like mining stations, being able to add a PSU can be pretty helpful.



I’m So in Love with the Enermax Saberay and LiqFusion

Enermax showed off two products that really stood out at CES. The first is the Saberay PC case, which made its first appearance a year before, but has some notable changes before release. The LiqFusion is a new CLC that really sets a high standard for RGB lighting. It also has an external pump!



Phanteks Catch-Up: Enthoo Pro TG, Halos Lux Fan Frames, Glacier Reservoirs

Phanteks has announced several releases worth noting. The Enthoo Pro case has tempered glass now, the Halos Lux fan frames are an easy RGB upgrade, and the Glacier reservoirs are an elegant addition to the custom loop cooling scene.



Deepcool Features Limited Edition Quadstellar and the Stellar Fryzen CPU Cooler

In yet another futuristic leap in hardware design, Deepcool has introduced the Fryzen CPU Cooler. Can anyone top the design on that thing. The Quadstellar already had an extremely futuristic design, but Deepcool is also releasing a limited edition of the case. Not sure about the orange though.
