techspot.com: Much like Ferrari and Lamborghini in the automotive world, Lian Li is considered by many to be the flagship computer chassis manufacturer. Although they have been in business since 1983, it wasn't until around 2000 that they began turning heads with their all-aluminum PC-60 series enclosures. This happened to be the first enthusiast case I ever reviewed, and at the time, it was light years ahead of anything else on the market.
ocia.net: The rear of the case offers two 120mm exhaust fans. I was happy to see a free-flowing design with these exhaust ports, rather than the restrictive grill designs that many other case manufacturers use. You can also see that two thumb-screws are used to hold the left side panel in place, allowing you to gain access to the case without the need for a screwdriver.
bigbruin.com: There is plenty of room for all of your components, and working inside in the NZXT Zero is quite easy given the space and variety of tool-less features. Once you have all of your components installed there is still a good deal of room which is nice since it makes it more visually appealing and will help the airflow keep the system cool.
virtual-hideout.net: I must say I really like this Zero enclosure, from the way the front bezel is laid out to all the room on the inside. The exterior is black on the panels and the plastic is polished and really shines. A word to the greasy people: you will leave noticeable fingerprints. With all that said, I would feel confident in purchasing the NZXT Zero, whether it's for gaming or using all the extra room...
thinkcomputers.org: If you are a computer enthusiast then you have heard of Lian Li. They make some of the best cases out there and have been doing it for years. One of my favorite cases of all time was the Lian Li PC-6089 case, to bad you can't really find it anymore. Today we are looking at a brand new case from Lian Li, the PC-A77. It features an all aluminum design, removable motherboard tray, and so many features that you just won't find on other cases. Let's take a look and see if Lian Li can impress us again.
techgage.com: NZXT has impressed us time and time again with their unique chassis designs and attention to detail, so when we saw that they were offering a $100 full-tower with a fully customizable cooling system, we had to check it out. With a clean design and lots of available space, did NZXT create a a must-have for the value-conscious consumer?
tweaktown.com: My last review of a case was a bit on the small side and slightly frustrating when trying to add all the pieces into that puzzle. Thats the good thing about what I do, though. Never fear, as something different is just around the corner. This time around, it just so happens to be a full tower case from NZXT; the Zero 2, that is up for discussion. In the past five years NZXT has started from a fledgling company, into a name that most gamers and enthusiasts recognize. These people are who NZXT strives to please by using ideas of the masses to incorporate better ideas and technologies into their products.
thinkcomputers.org: We first got a glimpse of the SwordM at CES 2007, we were amazed at the style and that Thermaltake would try such a radical case. Finally this year the case was released for sale and you know we had to get one to check out. Handmade of all aluminum with hydraulic mechanisms for the top and side panel it is unlike any other case we have seen before. This is a very limited case with only 10,000 units world-wide. Let us show you what this amazing case has to offer.
legitreviews.com: Some may look at the cooling package of the Tagan CS-Monolize and think that it is not very elegant, but more along the lines of brute force. Well sometimes a hit with a big hammer is what gets the job done, and Tagan brought a really big hammer. They stuck two fans pushing 150 CFM each in a case that only takes up 2.4 cubic feet of space. So getting fresh air into the case is not an issue...
tweaknews.net: When a product comes to market with lots of innovative features, outstanding performance and a unique look, all for a reasonable price, it's likely to be very successful. No stranger to commercial success, Cooler Master has once again raised the bar when it comes to performance and convenience in the PC chassis, while keeping the price at a very reasonable level.
techgage.com: Finding an affordable chassis that's both large and feature-packed can be a little difficult, but Cooler Master's latest HAF 932 delivers on all accounts, and the goods don't stop there. This steel full-tower features huge interior space, great ease-of-installation, many bundled fans, hardcore design... all on top of having a price tag that's easy to stomach.
techgage.com: PC silence means more now than ever before. While we love to have powerful machines, we also want peace and quiet, and understandably so. NZXT recently released their Whisper full-tower that's poised to deliver the best of both worlds. Can this huge chassis deliver the silence we're looking for, along with the functionality?
overclock3d.net: Looking for an affordable full tower for either water or air? Take a look inside to see if the Coolermaster HAF 932 is what your looking for.
hothardware.com: Innovation seems to be sporadic at best in the PC case market. We tend to see many more copycats and trend followers than trendsetters. Several true innovators come to mind, though, when we think about cases, and one of those innovative companies is Cooler Master. Sure, not every case designed by Cooler Master is a massive success or appealing to everyone, but it is one of the companies that the copycats watch and imitate. As a result of its innovation and success, Cooler Master is a proven and trusted brand and has been for quite some time. Cooler Master recently sent us a new full tower chassis to evaluate named the HAF 932.
tweaktown.com: When I first got into overclocking my computers, my decisions were based on looks with effectiveness in mind, but noise was a distant concern with my purchases. Years of coolers maxed at 100% for cooling effectiveness took their toll on me and members of my various VOIP servers. I had a rig that was jokingly referred to as a GE 120. For those who dont know, that is a jet engine developed by General Electric. So now you get a feel for what I was dealing with. Time progressed and I pushed a lot of my hardware close to death, but I have lost the urge to run my PC at breakneck speeds.
pro-clockers.com: We said the Element V is a big and we mean it. The case stands a whooping 21&quot; tall and has a depth of just over 21&quot; making this case ideal for those that need and want a big case. The Element V comes in one color only and that is black. And being from the same family as the other Element models you know it is going to be able to put on a light show. Just what else does the Element V have to offer? You will have to read on to find out.
extremeoverclocking.com: From the exterior, the SilverStone SST-TJ06 case looks like any other high quality case on the market. Sporting an aluminum front panel, and a 0.8mm steel body, this case is built extremely solid and looks great. What you don't see from the outside is the interior has been completely redesigned, with the motherboard mounting upside down! The reason for this radical change comes from the unique "Wind Tunnel Design" that enhances the cooling for the CPU and memory.
bigbruin.com: The front of the Thermaltake Eureka full tower case is fairly plain, but stylish, with what could perhaps be described as a more sophisticated look than many cases on the market. The top portion of the front door has a metal speaker grill feel to it, while the bottom portion is solid and provides a bit of contrast to the top.
