Way back in 2006, Thermaltake offered its first chassis in the Soprano line; the simple, but stylish Soprano VX. Fast forward to 2013 and we have another remake, called simply, “New Soprano”. The one thing I have always said about Thermaltake is that they seem to constantly strive to bring new and innovative products to the market. Let’s find out how they did with the New Soprano!
Today we have a chance to take a look at another HTPC/Media Server, smaller form factor case from Fractal Design. Instead of the Node 605 I recently reviewed, this time its a cube shaped case, the Node 304. This is the smallest case of the Node series but like the 605, aims to offer a lot of flexibility along with, “minimalistic and stunning Scandinavian design and maximum functionality”. Let’s see how this matches up to Fractal Design’s vision.
Today, I bring you just a taste of what EVGA, ASUS, Rosewill and Sapphire had to offer at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Being in a time period where new CPUs and GPUs are a few months away, there wasn’t too much that was brand spanking new in the way of motherboards and GPU’s, but still plenty of eye candy for PC enthusiasts to marvel at.
During our recent trip to CES in Las Vegas, we had a great meeting with the guys from Swiftech. They had several items on display for us to look over, but their main reason for being at CES was to introduce the new H220 all-in-one water cooling system. So, what makes the Swftech H220 stand out against the plethora of other manufacturers offerings? Actually, there is a number of things that we’ll explore!
It seems everyone is jumping in the all-in-one water cooling market these days, and Cooler Master hopes to make a splash with their recently released Seidon 240M. Today is official launch day for the new Seidon 240M AIO, and Overclockers is here to provide you with a look at this new offering from Cooler Master. So, without further ado, let’s dive in!
As the Define R3 exits stage left, entering stage right is the recently released Define R4. This time around we get a chassis that is a little wider, includes USB 3.0 support, and features a built in fan controller. We’ll touch on other improvements made to the Define R4 as we work our way around the case, inside and out.
Today, we review a Cougar. Probably not the kind you initially thought of. This one is bright orange/red! It’s also a power supply. Cougar is one of HEC/Compucase’s house brands for power supplies and fans, their main claim to fame as far as I can tell are the lurid paint jobs. This unit is no exception! If the performance is as good as the paint is shiny, we’re in for a good unit here. Let’s check!
