1.SilverStone Computer Case
- Lockable front door ensures security of system and drives
- Positive air pressure design for excellent cooling/quietness and dust-prevention
SilverStone’s new Sugo 14 PC case is an innovative mini-ITX model that can fit a surprising loadout of components inside. True to the Sugo line, this one is designed to pack peak power parts into a compact chassis. Inside, for example, you can fit a full-size ATX power supply, three 2.5-inch drives, a 240mm liquid cooler, and a triple-slot graphics card up to 13 inches long, all at the same time.
(Different possible combinations can include larger drives, including even a legacy 5.25-incher.) The case has a few downsides and isn’t the easiest to build in, but the low price and positive aspects more than make up for these shortcomings. Small-PC builders keen to stuff as much powerful hardware inside should give it a long look.back to menu ↑
2.Fractal Design Define R5
- Optimally designed for silent computing with high density noise-reducing material throughout the case for maximum sound absorption, while not compromising on airflow and cooling capabilities
- Extensive water cooling support for a case of this size; housing radiators up to 420mm in the top and 360mm in the front
The Fractal Design Define R5 is the next evolution in the widely popular Define Series. Packed with intelligently designed enthusiast-oriented features delivering a silent case with powerful and expansive air and liquid cooling support, presented in a stunning Scandinavian inspired construction.
The Define R5 case reaches the highest level of silent computing through strategically placed dense sound-absorbing material, ModuVent fan vent covers and finely tuned Dynamic Series fans.back to menu ↑
3.NZXT H510 – CA-H510B-B1
- New features: Front I/O USB Type-C Port and Tempered glass side panel with single screw installation
- Enhanced cable management: Our patented cable routing kit with pre-installed channels and straps makes wiring easy and intuitive
The current trend of RGB lighting and tempered glass panels makes it obvious that many people like to showcase their system builds. NZXT’s H510 Elite is just that, a show case (pardon the pun) that puts your system on display and includes everything an enthusiast could ask for.
But, (UK price as yet unknown), the H510 Elite faces stiff competition, especially from the company’s own H510 and H510i chassis. Those bringing your RGB fans over from a previous build could save as much as one hundred dollars by opting for the H510 or H510i.back to menu ↑
4.Phanteks Eclipse Series P400S
- Enthoo Eclipse ATX includes 1 x 120mm fans in front and 1 x 120mm fan in the rear. Ability to upgrade to additional fans is possible.
- Steel Exterior and Chassis. Clean interior - Hidden PSU and HDD's. 10 color RGB downlight + RGB power light with on/off switch. optional upgrade: Internal RGB lighting (Same as Luxe case)
It’s been one case after another lately: The Corsair 400C, NZXT Manta, Revolt 2, and now the Phanteks Eclipse P400.
Phanteks’ Eclipse P400 is immediately reminiscent of the NZXT S340 enclosure, which we’ve pinpointed as the origin of the industry’s obsession with PSU shrouds and limited drive support. That’s not to say there can’t be multiple products in the category – it’s good to see continual innovation atop well-founded concepts, and new competition drives development further.
The Phanteks Eclipse P400 first entered our lives at CES 2016, where we got hands-on with its significantly larger convention sibling, the Project 916. The Phanteks Eclipse P400 review benchmarks cooling performance, looks at thermal walls, ease-of-installation, cable management, and overall value of the case.back to menu ↑
- Contemporary Solid Steel Pink ATX Mid Tower Computer Gaming Case with 1x Tempered Glass Window (Left) & 4x RGB Fans Preinstalled
- Support ATX / Micro ATX / ITX Motherboard, USB3.0/USB2.0/HD Audio Ports, and Improved Cable Management
The Apevia Aura PC case is not like any orthodox tempered glass front panel design in the market today. We incorporated a front panel style offering responsive clicky flick switches for the power on, reset, and LED RGB color switch to give it a fashionable unique look while maintaining a minimalist appearanceback to menu ↑
