AzzA Solano 1000 Gaming Chassis Review

When I opened the box I was a little disappointed at the front of the case. It was about as standard as it gets when it comes to cases. Flat black from top to bottom, with ten drive bay covers covering the entire front.

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.

NZXT 140mm & 120mm FX Enthusiast Fan Review

Yup, this isn’t a press release or a tease… this is the only review on the new NZXT FX Enthusiast Fan series that I know of on the Internets at the time of this writing. If you’re familiar with the NZXT brand, then you’re probably a loyal customer and not only have a few of […]

NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller

NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller

There are all sorts of ways to tame the noisy array of fans within your PC case.  Some of them are rather fancy, but have a higher learning curve.  Some cases come with very basic fan rheostats that control all of your fans at once.  Sometimes you want a no-nonsense direct way to control each […]

Sentey Optimus GS-6000 PC Case

So, you’re an Incredibly Cheap Bastard and decided that you need a brand-spanking new PC case instead of screwing Ebay sellers for brand-name quality merchandise for a fraction of the cost.  Since you’re an Incredibly Cheap Bastard, then not just any old inexpensive case will do: you have to have a really cool-looking case without […]

Enermax Phoenix Neo Case

Enermax Phoenix Neo Case

A generation ago the only way to tell the difference between a high end gaming PC and a beige office box was by looking inside.  Today PC gamers want to brand their gear as fashionable as gaming consoles, so everyone knows what’s up.  There are no shortages of gaming computer cases, and because there are so many […]

nMedia Wood HTPC 8000 Case Review

Back in the day when computer modding was brand new, people came up with some of the most innovative PC cases. Some shoved their cases into custom steel cases, acrylic and even cases made from Legos. By far one of the most prestine-looking cases have been made from wood. I even did a case mod […]

Sharkoon Magnetic Anti-Vibration Fan Gasket Review

Sharkoon Magnetic Anti-Vibration Fan Gasket Review

Every computer needs a good cooling system, and the bare minimum is a good air intake and exhaust system.  Unfortunately, most cases and fans vary on the quality of airflow and the amount of noise they produce. The design of the case may constrain effective airflow strategies.  For example, some home theater cases use several […]

GlacialTech Altair A381 Home Theater Case

GlacialTech Altair A381 Home Theater Case

We review so many Home Theater PC cases that sometimes they all start to look alike.  Many of them try to mimic the look of either a home theater amplifier or DVD player.  Due to size constraints, many manufacturers opt for the amplifier, which allows the consumer to use standard-size PC components.  Some of the […]

NZXT Tempest Gamer Case Review

NZXT Tempest Gamer Case Review

PC Gaming is a serious business.  Maybe it’s because PC gamers are constantly upgrading their hardware and are usually on the cutting edge (if not bleeding edge) of the latest PC technology.  PC gamers not only require their hardware to be fast, but look cool at the same time.  There is a degree of one-upmanship […]

GMC AVC-K1 Muse Media PC Case

GMC AVC-K1 Muse Media PC Case

The GMC Corporation (not to be confused with General Motors in the USA) is a Korean company that has produced some of the most innovative case designs in recent memory.  OCModShop has had a chance to review some of their creations in the past,  and each of their designs has provided a good shot in […]

nMedia 1000B Home Theater Case Review

nMedia 1000B Home Theater Case Review

More people are trading in their complicated rack of home theater equipment in exchange for an Home Theater PC.  Most HTPCs are all-in-one appliances that can easily replace a DVD player, BluRay player (or burner), DVR, MP3 player, and can do many other entertainment tasks like gaming. If you’ve made the decision to upgrade your […]

Antec Veris Multimedia Station Premium Review

Antec Veris Multimedia Station Premium Review

We’ve reviewed many Home Theater cases over the years at OCModShop.  Some of them have multimedia features that are seamlessly integrated with the case, while many others are nothing more than standard desktop cases with a fancy front panel.  There are several cases I have owned that were awesome, but converting them into Home Theater […]

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 […]

Scythe Kama Bay Cooler

Scythe Kama Bay Cooler

It doesn’t matter if your computer is air or water-cooled, is used as a workstation or gaming rig: air circulation is key to keeping your system running. Most people circulate air by using strategically placed fans, while others use water-cooling, heat pipes, and other technology, but one principle remains the same, to move warm air […]

Ultra m998 Case

Ultra m998 Case

Computer enthusiasts want their computer gear to look tough.  Tough enough to go into your man-cave.  Your case should steal the milk money from wimpy cases, and date their moms.  Your case should look like it was made from the parts of lesser cases to form one uber-case.  Your case should be a badass. What could […]

Antec Performance Plus660AMG Case

Antec Performance Plus660AMG Case

Antec has taken their trademark case and kicked it up a notch. They recently released their line of Performance Plus cases which have considerable improvements from the original series of cases. I have done a few different case reviews this month and they have been good cases so far, I am wondering if this case […]

ThermalTake iFlash 120mm Cooling Fan Review

ThermalTake iFlash 120mm Cooling Fan Review

One of the first products to come from the pre-fabbed modding scene were LED fans.  At the time these clear whirlwinds with multi-colored LEDs were absolutely fascinating, and the clear fans were much more interesting to look at than standard matte black fans.  These fans gave us a reason to take up a Dremel and […]

Zalman CNPS 8700 LED Heatsink Review

Zalman has been making some of the most innovative and quiet after-market heatsinks in the computer industry for several years.  They have had to keep up with the thermal trends as processors became more powerful over the years, which has had the unfortunate side effect of making their products rather large.  One of Zalman’s best […]
