Azza Storm 6000W Chassis Review

Introduction Please give a huge welcome to our new reviewer, Brendan Varik at PureOC! You can welcome him at the forum post for this review. AZZA is a brand that I suspect not too many of you are familiar with. They formed way back in 1996 with three main business philosophies: innovation, performance and growth. When they launched, they were primarily in the motherboard manufacturing business, and was one of the top ten leading suppliers in the 90’s. Today, however, is a slightly different story in the sense that they create mainly gaming cases and are looking to offer you some bang for your buck. In 2009, they were able to restructure and then distribute their products under the AZZA trademark that we see today. They no longer sell motherboards, but instead offer a plethora of computer accessories and components; ranging from cases to monitors, they’ve surely got something for you. Let’s get on with the meat of this review, and discuss what they sent over for us to look at. It is of course, as you probably already guessed by the title of this review, the Storm 6000 gaming chassis. Oh, and it’s the white variant of the two, because (surely) everyone loves the black and white themes that you can create with modern hardware. You can of course opt for the black version instead, which you can tell apart in the naming scheme by it either being the 6000W or 6000B SKU.   Are you looking for a case with eight expansion slots? Perhaps a possibility of vertically mount...

The NZXT Phantom 820 Enthusiast Full Tower Chassis

As a kid I loved reading comics, especially the ones about super heroes. One of my favorites is the Phantom, an American adventure comic strip created by Lee Falk, also creator of Mandrake the Magician. This is a popular feature adapted to several forms of media, including television, film and video games. It stars a costumed crime fighter operating from the fictional African country Bangla. The Phantom is the 21st in a line of crime fighters that originated in 1536, when the father of British sailor Christopher Walker was killed during a pirate attack. Swearing an oath to fight evil on the skull of his father's murderer, Christopher started the legacy of the Phantom that would be passed from father to son. Believing him to be immortal due to this legacy, his enemies gave the mysterious figure nicknames such as "The Ghost Who Walks", "The Man Who Cannot Die" and "Guardian of the Eastern Dark." Unlike many fictional costumed heroes, the Phantom does not have any supernatural powers, but instead relies on his strength, intelligence, and fearsome reputation for being an immortal ghost to defeat his foes. Today we have the pleasure of reading about another Phantom; only this legacy and legend was conceived and created by our friends at NZXT. The Phantom is reborn again only this time as The Phantom 820, an enthusiast steel full tower chassis, engineered to chill even the most demanding systems. The Phantom 820 is equipped with 200 mm and 140 mm fans in strategic positio...



 
 
 
 
 

Enermax Hoplite ST

Enermax is known largely for their power supplies but they also have some solid gaming cases. Today I will be taking a look at the Hoplite-ST, which is Enermax’s newest mid tower case. If abstract looking pc cases aren’t your cup of tea then the new Hoplite-ST may be something that will intrigue you. The mid tower case from Enermax comes in to two different colors (white and black) and has a simple, classy looking exterior, which is sometimes hard to come by in a gaming case these days. This case has all the gaming features you could need, like tool-less drive bays, an external hard drive SATA port, a transparent side window, good cable management, an external fan controller and more. Yet it still retains a simple and elegant design. Let’s see if Enermax’s cases are as good as their power supplies, and see if perhaps this is the right case to house your next build. First, here is a litte more about the manufacturer.
