NZXT Phantom 820 Case Review

NZXT Phantom 820 Case Review

The Phantom 820 is NZXT’s sidewinder missile, and they have it aimed right at the top of the market for gaming cases. And when I say huge, that’s exactly what I mean. It’s 12” wide, 27” long, and 29” tall. That’s almost two and half feet tall. With a total weight of 32 pounds.

Bitfenix Shinobi Case

Bitfenix Shinobi Case

Users shouldn’t have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for. In the heat of battle, the user should not have […]

Server Setup Guide

Server Setup Guide

Hardware is one of the most important items in building a server, regardless of its overall purpose. Without enough power or memory to run the necessary applications, the server would subsequently be useless. Depending on its intended usage, however, the hardware may vary slightly. It is often a good idea to sit down and create […]

Xion Predator AXP 970 Case Review

Xion Predator AXP 970 Case Review

I’m always a bit skeptical of gaming cases, or the enthusiast cases.  There’s no way I could convince myself to walk into my nearest Fry’s and pick one off the shelf that looked good.  It simply goes against the common sense that many of us have developed to do our research before we buy.  That […]

Cooler Master Elite 310 Case Review

Cooler Master Elite 310 Case Review

I’ll say it like it is, The Cooler Master Elite 310 is not the case you’re going to be selecting for your next powerful gaming rig.  However, it still a solid case that would be suitable for a budget build or if you’re going for something less flashy.  The one we received was the model […]

Well, well.  Here we are with yet another PC case.  Another round of “will it fit” and “what’s the airflow like”.  Another exploration of the inner workings of a piece of architecture meant to house the latest and greatest in hardware.  I give to you none other than the illustrious Antec NSK4480B II.  It’s sleek.

Otterbox Defender for Blackberry Storm

Otterbox Defender for Blackberry Storm

The big problem with portable computing devices is that they’re portable.  What I mean by that is this statement is that these expensive devices are put through a lot of wear and tear, and sustain damage just from being toted around.   Many people’s cell phones perform many functions at once: cell phone, email client, MP3 […]

GMC X7 X-Station Case Review

GMC X7 X-Station Case Review

I love building computers. In the words of Duff Goldman, I like to make them bigger, badder, awesome. The thing is, that takes money. And in this industry, a freakin’ lot of money. Computer parts have dropped in price by comparison to when PCs were just becoming the big thing. I don’t think that the computer world really knew what […]

Thermaltake DH102 Home Theater PC Case

Thermaltake DH102 Home Theater PC Case

Home Theater PCs have grown in popularity over the past decade.  At first these were nice items built by nerds to experience cutting-edge home theater technology.  Since that time there have been new home theater appliances that are now mainstream: digital DVRs (also known as Tivos), upscaling DVD players, DVD recorders, MP3 players, and the […]

X-Gene HTPC Case

X-Gene HTPC Case

Sometimes I get those new hardware for review, and my first thought is “what the Hell?”.  This is one of those times.  I bring to you the X-Gen HTPC Mid Case.  I was so wary of this case, I didn’t even have a witty story to go with it.  I don’t like the models that […]

GMC Noblesse AVC-S7 Slimline Home Theater Case

GMC Noblesse AVC-S7 Slimline Home Theater Case

I love Home Theater PC cases.  Several years ago there weren’t many to choose from, and many of them looked more like PC equipment rather than OEM home theater equipment.  Now there are several great designs that look like they belong in your rack of audio equipment, and have functionality that makes them work like […]

X-Sonic Case

X-Sonic Case

Case-Mod sent over another case for me to review called the X-Sonic. Usually I don’t like pre-modded cases but I wanted to give this one a chance. Personally I don’t like pre-modded cases most of the time because I like doing the work myself. There are however people out there who don’t want to do […]

Galaya Clear Fan with Blue LEDs

Galaya Clear Fan with Blue LEDs

We have all seen fans before, the plain old black housing with nothing special on it, and those are all well and good. There is a better solution for your cooling needs however! Case-Mod sent over one of their new fans which has a totally clear housing and blades with blue LEDs in the middle […]

Xoxide 12 Inch Blue Cold Cathode

Xoxide 12 Inch Blue Cold Cathode

If you have cut your case to bits, put a window in it, painted it and still you find that it is missing something, this may be the answer. The next logical step after installing a window is to light it up so everyone can see what’s inside. I mean a window isn’t much good […]

SVC Glacial Cooler 68 Revisited

SVC Glacial Cooler 68 Revisited

I previously reviewed the SVC Glacial Cooler 68 (GC68) with only the stock fan on a Duron 800Mhz I now have a 1.2Ghz Thunderbird so I want to see how it performs, I also have some more fans. Case-Mod sent over the 48.5CFM fan that you can upgrade it to when you buy the heatsink. […]
