Cases & PSU
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
