Nanoxia is a company well known in Europe for their Legendary Green Nanoxia Nano-bearing fans and other peripherals, as well as their Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 Gaming cases. Nanoxia re-entered the enthusiast arena with another arrival, called the Deep Silence 2, a second generation Mid-Tower chassis based on their Deep Silence 1 classic design. The Deep Silence 2 mid-tower chassis is also part of a new line of future products whose objective is to offer the perfect relationship of ideal system cooling, and sensationally low noise levels in one package. It is designed especially for high-end PC and gaming systems. Recently when we reviewed The Nanoxia Deep Silence 1, we were very impressed with the build quality. We were also impressed by how both cool and quiet could coexist together. With this and all the other amenities the Deep Silence 1 had to offer, it received our Pure Overclock's Great Hardware award. I am especially excited to be reviewing the next generation Nanoxia Deep Silence 2. At $99.00 US it is slightly less expensive than the Deep Silence 1. Read on to see how well the Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 stacks up to its predecessor.

Roughly six months ago, Cooler Master introduced the new Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 to the world. This was a revision of its previous model, the Scout I. The Storm Scout 2 was well received and even earned a PureOC Good Hardware Award from us. Even though the initial release of the Scout 2 went well, Cooler Master still likes to listen to consumers and the PC modding community, just to improve things further. They took feedback from a number of online forums and from reviews like ours just to take the next iteration of the lineup to the next level. Today we have their newest revision - The Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advance. The new Scout 2 Advance series chassis now comes with several design enhancements, and even includes a new color called "Ghost White." Let's dive in to take a deeper look at these changes and see how they improved upon the previous chassis.
The In Win Commander III 600W comes with a unique military-themed design named for the famous Desert Fox moniker that started in WW2 attributed to German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel and then again resurfaced decades later during the Iraqi war in the late 1990's.

Seems pretty good so far, so let's take a closer look at this In Win power supply and see how it fares.
