The world of custom PCs is getting rather intriguing. Not too long ago, certain companies dictated what the new releases were going to be and innovation was a bit of a slow process. Today, there are dozens of companies trying to jump into the gaming PC market, but the problem with a lot of it is that so many of them are turning into carbon copies of the bigger companies. If you’re going to release a new product, make it worth while and if you need a good example, look at Deepcool. They just announced the release of the Ark 90 Full Tower case and this is how you shake up the market with a new design. For starters, I’m loving this aesthetic! It’s a perfect balance of clean, sharp angles with a splash of RGB color. It’s bound to have a broad appeal to all kinds of builders across gaming and professional spectrum. The Ark 90 also builds on the tradition of including a pre-installed CLC cooler that the Genome series started. In this case, we have a 280mm radiator attached to the Captain style pump block. If you’re looking for a perfect balance of fan noise and cooling, 280mm seems to be great for just CPU overclocking. Not only are the fans on the cooler RGB, but Deepcool has included an extra two fans to help with the cooling. These are features that really stand out to me, but I’m not saying it’s the perfect case either. I still have issues with the lack of a hinge/latch system with the glass panel and even though there’s severa...
Is it really the case, or is it all about the fans? Turns out it’s both. You need good fans, but you also need a case that supports lots of them. The Hardware Hound had a suspicion about what would be the best chassis for a system that generates a lot of heat, but now he has some testing that helps back up what experience was starting to show. Check out the video below so you can find out how to handle the heat, while still showing off all of the awesomeness in your build, as well as finding out what case seems to check both categories perfectly with crazy amounts of fan support.

Nanoxia Deep Silence cases are well known in Europe and designed for both cool and quiet performance. Today will be looking at the Deep Silence 5 Mid-Tower chassis. This innovative case is part of a new line of future products, whose objective is to offer the perfect symbiosis of ideal system cooling and sensationally low noise levels in one package. The focus was always on two requirements: minimize noise and minimize system temperatures. It is also designed especially for the use in high-end PC- and gaming systems. The side panels and roof are fitted with specially designed, noise reducing insulation materials to help minimize and absorb any noises. The solid front doors also use sound absorbing materials that contribute significantly to the most effective noise reduction achieved by Nanoxia. Also responsible for the quietness of the case are the three pre-installed Nanoxia fans of the brand new DS-Series. This most recent Nanoxia fan-series features a new impeller design, optimized for the best possible mix of silence and cooling capacity. Read on to see what else the Nanoxia Deep Silence 5 may have to offer.

It is taller, deeper, and wider than any of their current cases, while still keeping with their simple but classic design. This huge tower offers the user enormous space with new and innovative technologies, such as the "Active Air Chimney" to improve the ventilation of the case. Along with these latest innovations Nanoxia has always focused on minimizing noise and system temperatures.

Introduction The Cooler Master Cosmos and Cosmos II are some of the best cases on the market as far as features and options go. They are also renowned for their shear size as well; however, Cooler Master has gone and shrunk the venerable Cosmos just a tad and made a few other tweaks.

Cases have come so far in so little time that it's almost impossible to see every single one. They've transformed from being plain beige boxes to offering just about any shape and/or color your heart desires. They also come in a variety of sizes - from cases designed for Mini-ITX boards to those designed for E-ATX or even bigger. The case we'll be looking at today fits firmly into the "E-ATX or bigger" category. You're all familiar with the name Corsair - they've been around making high-end cases, peripherals, SSDs, RAM, and more for quite some time. Corsair just released their latest top-of-the-line case - the 900D - and we've got our hands on one to check out for you guys. Grab a drink and a snack and settle in - this case is loaded to the gills with goodies.
NZXT with the Phantom 630 breaks tradition and continues to raise the bar for the entire industry with its new cutting edge features moving forward and ahead of the pack in every way.

This case features support for E-ATX motherboards, a 360mm rad at the top, a 240mm rad at the bottom (with the HDD cage removed), and support for ten 120/140mm fans. Yes. 2 rads and 10 fans! This case was designed to appeal to nearly anyone, from the water cooling enthusiast to the gamer with taller heatsinks. Could this wide variety of features be the shining factor for this case? We shall soon see if In-Win did well enough by trying to cater to everyone's needs with the GRone.
Sometimes it's tough to search for that perfect chassis. Whether you are looking for design or functionality, finding the perfect case poses a number of challenges.

We must say, the unique touches, in both form and functionality, that Cooler Master has added into the Stryker really caught our attention. As we move further into this review you will see why. Before we delve deeper into the versatility of this chassis we will talk a little about Cooler Master's design aesthetic with the Stryker Chassis.
