The two are dissimilar from one another in terms of design and purpose, but... Read more...
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and one look is all it takes to decide if the new Raptor PC chassis from Raidmax is ugly as sin or one of the coolest designs you've ever seen. There isn't much middle ground here -- it's wild, it's funky, it's attention getting, and according to Raidmax, it was inspired... Read more...
It’s something you bump into all the time: You’ll be testing out a nice case only to find that the front I/O panel has just USB 2.0 ports, with no USB 3.0 to be found. It seems like a smallish detail until you plug in a USB 3.0 device and find you’re limited to USB 2.0 performance. BitFenix gets it and is upgrading more of... Read more...

There's no two ways about it, you're either going to love Raidmax's new Gundam themed Augusta computer case and proclaim it's freaking awesome, or hate what you perceive is a fugly design.

Your PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game consoles can stand upright or lay on their sides, so shouldn't your home theater PC (HTPC) be able to do the same thing? That depends entirely on which computer case you choose. Cooler Master's new Elite 361 mini tower is one of just a handful of cases that have been designed to work their mojo in either...

Antec announced the Antec One enclosure, a gaming case designed to offer solid features and performance for those on a budget--even a small budget, as the street price looks to be around $60.

It’s been a while since our last case roundup--a long while, actually--so it’s high time we did another. We take a look at a slew of (mostly) mid tower cases on the following pages, including the Antec Eleven Hundred, the Corsair Carbide 400R and 500R, the NZXT Source 220, and Thermaltake Chaser MK-I, each designed for a slightly...

This isn't just a new year for Cooler Master, 2012 just happens to represent the company's 20th year of service. What better way to celebrate the occasion than to release a new chassis? Honestly, we can think of several, but none of them productive (and some aren't even legal), so kudos to Cooler Master for staying... Read more...

We had a chance to get up close and personal with NZXT's ginormous Phantom chassis during our 'Back-to-School PC Roundup' in September, and let us tell you, it's a great looking case. It's also quite large. We thought it resembled a Storm Trooper, both in size and shape, and while that's fine if you have room for a... Read more...
