SilverStone SETA A1 Mid-Tower Case Review

Today we take an in-depth look at Silverstone’s SETA A1 Mid-tower case. The SETA A1 is advertised as a premium quality case with impressive lighting and substantial airflow. It features a steel chasis, brushed aluminum front panel, and a tempered glass side panel. It certainly has the look and feel of a quality case without being overly gaudy. Read More

Silverstone PF360 All-In-One Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Silverstone has been around since 2003 and have a sizable stake in the PC chassis, power supply, CPU cooler, fans, and accessory markets. Personally, I was first introduced to them as a top tier PC case manufacturer, and I still have and use some of their older cases such as the PS07, TJ08-E, and the TJ07. However, we have one of their all-in-one liquid CPU coolers up for testing, the PF360. The PF360 is a large 3×120 mm CPU cooler featuring addressable RGB on both the fans and pump/block housing.

But now we know where these Silverstone fans fit into the 120 mm universe. So let’s get out our telescopes and start looking. Read More

Case Fan Roundup: Twenty Three 120 mm Case Fans Tested

Case fans are supposed to cool your case. As use in this review, a case fan is a fixed-voltage fan. Today we might want to call them non-PWM fans. These fans are “set ‘em and forget ‘em” fans. Except that some of you insist on using fan controllers to vary the speeds of your fans. Imagine that! Well, in any case (in any case – get it?) we’re going to look at more than twenty case fans. I say “more than twenty’’ because I can’t count. We have more than 30 fans and settings that we will be looking at today. If you are interested in counting actual fans, be my guest. Read More
