Cases & PSU
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.
Raijintek only needs a little more polish on the Asterion, but the full tower chassis is still a pleasure to build in. The Thetis however, is a great design that would make a great SFF computer with room to build. Both cases are strong offerings though.
We've been waiting for this release for a year now. Introduced at the last CES, the Deepcool Quadstellar Smart Case is set to come to market this year. The four chamber design is almost impossible to top when it comes to awesome looks. This chassis might have the most futuristic design yet.
Enermax offers an excellent PSU with the MaxTytan. Sleemax is a great feature for those who don't want to sleeve cables themselves. The RevoBron is a solid budget option that doesn't cut important features for a clean computer build. Respective to their budgets, each unit has great quality.

NZXT hasn’t released a new case in a while, but that changed last week with the new H series. While we’re pretty pro NZXT here, you will probably see a bit of familiarity here on this release. While this may not be the completely never-before-seen design we were hoping for, there are some nice sounding tweaks to the design and integrated digital fan/RGB control. Check out the full press release below for more info and links! Los Angeles, CA – October 17th, 2017 – Today NZXT is announcing the all-new H Series PC cases showcasing its vision for modern PC building. The H700i, H400i, and H200i include the newly-developed, fully-integrated Smart Device controller providing the same capabilities as NZXT’s highly-acclaimed GRID+ and HUE+ products. Each case comes build-ready with pre-installed RGB lighting and pre-wired Aer F fans*, saving the cost and hassle of adding RGB and fan controllers. Introducing the All-New H-Series The Smart Device also adds an audio sensor to measure fan noise, enabling a new feature called “Adaptive Noise Reduction.” This intelligent, cloud-based algorithm leverages the power of shared data and machine learning to develop fan curves that can reduce system noise by up to 40%. A patent-pending cable management system makes it easy to keep your system neat and tidy, without wasting time on your wiring.

Dual chamber case are pretty ingenious. It makes cable management quite easy and opens up some airflow options as well. Rosewill has updated the already great Cullinan cases with one such version in the PX series. It has an option for blue, red and green LED color schemes.
Raijintek is a small company with big ideas. The Paean chassis is one example of it. It maintains all the benefits a good bench case should have, but makes it display worthy with sturdy tempered glass panels. The solid aluminum motherboard tray is a great example of quality as well. Enjoy the review!
PureOC will always recommend building your own computer, but we understand that isn't for everyone. iBuyPower does an excellent job selling pre-built custom PCs and we really enjoyed getting a chance to review the Element. Besides, we couldn't say no to the chance to try an Intel i7-7900X and Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti!
Azza offers a lot of case for a great price. The Storm 6000W has a good number of fans, a spacey interior, and some fun RGB lighting effects to boot. If you don't mind overlooking some minor details that can make the build experience a little harder, this chassis is a great option to consider.
Enermax has some great designs and great quality. Even though this is only an unboxing of the GraceMesh, the case has some great features that are worth pointing out in a quick overview. If a builder is in the market for a solid budget chassis, the GraceMesh seems like a great fit!
Many cases focus on easy building and external gaming looks to sell to the market. In Win designed their 301 chassis to force the builder to make a beautiful, clean build. Many of their cases come with hefty price premiums, but the 301 is quite affordable. It's a great case for a SFF computer.
Budget cases usually pale in comparison to better ones. The CMT210 won't have as many features, but building in this case was one of the best experiences a buyer could have. FSP put a ton of care and attention to detail and their first case is a great option for a beginner PC.
Raijintek isn't the biggest name in the computer component world, and that's a shame. They have excellent designs from elegant bench cases, to sharp looking CPU and GPU coolers. It doesn't seem to take long before they have a new product on their site that looks incredibly interesting.
