Yesterday, Fractal Design announced the release of its latest PSU series, the ION Gold. This fully modular series includes four models to fit your needs offering 550W, 650W, 750W, and 850W SKUs. Marketed as high-quality power supplies with competitive prices, the 550W ION Gold is only $80 and comes with a full seven-year warranty. Here is the press release from Fractal Design.
Fractal Designs has just announced the launch of two new Meshify series cases, the Meshify 2 and the Meshify 2 XL. Adding increased flexibility, both models feature an adaptable dual-layer interior and increased airflow options. The Meshify 2 is a Mid-tower design capable of housing an EATX motherboard while the XL is a full-size tower capable of fitting SSI-EEB server-class motherboards.
Fractal Design has announced its latest redesign of their Define Series, the Define 7 and 7XL. As similar to the old model as the new one looks, there are small changes that Fractal describes as “the most comprehensive refinement of design elements yet”. Almost five years ago we reviewed Fractal Design’s Define R5 Case, we gave it our stamp of approval with statements regarding how quiet and spacious the case was.
NZXT seems to be on a roll recently. They have cases which are whimsical and stolid, take your pick. They have a variety of accessories. They have a line of AIO coolers (one was reviewed on our frontpage). Additionally they have put out a number of fascinating fans. We will review two kinds of fan here – PWM (for rads) and case fans. What we find out should be interesting.
Fractal Design just released details on a new small form factor chassis with an emphasis on “design” of course (it’s in the name) and quiet operation. The Define Nano S is compatible with ITX motherboards and even has space for a water cooling setup. This sleek case would look great next to an entertainment center.
Today, we have an opportunity to look at a new full tower case from Fractal Design named the ARC XL. In the past, we have reviewed other smaller cases from them such as the ARC Midi and Mini, the Define R3 mid-tower, and the Full Tower XL R2. However, the ARC XL is a different design then the “Approved” XL R2, but looks to build upon some of its merits. Let’s see what this case has to offer a builder, shall we?
