SilverStone MS07 & EP02 Reviewed By eTeknix

"With the EP02 in particular offering a quick and easy solution to mounting an SSD (for example) onto another system for diagnostics, it simply makes life that much easier. The MS07 is also well thought through and when removing our WD Red hard drive from the case we did feel a good bit of resistance from the silicone and this is good as the last thing any of us want is for the drive to easily slip out and hit the floor."

SilverStone Tundra TD02 A-I-O Liquid Cooler On PC Perspective

"The build quality of the unit is impressive with the unit built for ruggedness and aesthetics. The radiator is almost double the thickness of that included with most all-in-one units, measuring 45mm instead of the normal 25mm. Further, the radiator fin design was an innovation in its own right with each fin layer individually soldered to the water lines."

SilverStone PS09 Chassis Review On eTeknix

"Silverstone are well-known for packing plenty of features into their range of cases and the PS09 is no different, at this price range I think it is great to see dual USB 3.0 ports on the front panel, as well as removable and washable dust filters that are easily accessible from the front. A large cut-out allows for easy CPU cooler installations, and the side panels are generously padded with sound dampening material. A single 120mm fan is included and should be more than enough for any modestly powerful system given the cases small form factor."

EVGA Z87 Stinger Review On Hardware Heaven

"Z87 Stinger we have a pretty solid product. EVGA use a decent layout although on a board of this type having as many of the key connectors close to the edge, and close to each other, as possible would be beneficial to wiring in compact cases. The black/red colour scheme works well and there is plenty of room round the CPU socket for larger coolers, including some pretty massive ones from the likes of Noctua."

TweakTown Says Bitfenix Colossus MITX Cube Chassis Thinks Outside The Square

"once we close things off and power it up, the Colossus Mini-ITX chassis gets even better as you get to customize the very cool lighting scheme offered around three sides of this chassis. I for one am a fan of what BitFenix delivered in the Colossus Mini-ITX chassis and hope that they stick with the logic that you don't have to follow the crowd to make a good chassis, doing things outside of the realm of normality is the real meal ticket in today's market."

SilverStone Arm Two Monitor Stand On APH Networks

"It is very refined, and has everything you should and could expect from a company like SilverStone. The ARM Two is extremely well put together; our particular unit's fit and finish is absolutely top notch. The company's excellent use of aluminum and steel ensures the arm screams quality no matter where you look and touch. The way SilverStone designed the SST-ARM22SC as an articulating arm also allows tons of flexibility in adjustment; whether you are looking to raise, swivel, rotate, and tilt your screens -- this has everything under the belt. As the icing on the cake, its silver-black color scheme is subtle yet elegant to fit in regardless of it being located in your office or your room"

Lian Li PC-A79 Chassis Is Precision Crafted To Perfection Writes eTeknix

"I think it is pretty obvious that this chassis is nothing short of faultless. Every little detail of it has been precision crafted to perfection and the level of detail on the HDD adaptor brackets alone is proof of that. Lian Li have built a huge chassis for the extreme end of the PC market, but then they’ve gone in and added little touches and details, such as the rear wheels, that make working with and maintaining your high end build that much easier."

Noctua NH-U12S Cooler Review On Hardcoreware

"If you have a very specific amount of space to work with, and the NH-U12S fits within those constraints, it is probably a better choice than just about any closed loop cooler that would otherwise fit. Adding a second fan improves performance dramatically, allowing more overclocking headroom while maintaining a relatively low noise level."

Think Computers On The Thermaltake Urban S71 Chassis

"Thermaltake really does have a great case in the Urban S71. We have been waiting for a more sleek and sophisticated case from Thermaltake and the Urban S71 is it. The minimal style and clean front panel should appeal to many people."

Destructoid Says Gunnar Intercept Colours Tame Dry As A Desert Eyes!

"I went eyes-on at with these at CES this week, slipping them on my face after a hideously long day of staring at my computer, mobile devices, and countless demos on the show floor. It was about 11:00 p.m. when I tried them on, so my eyes were as dry as the desert. But relief came soon with their glare-busting glass. I noticed that they instantly tamed the fluorescent show floor lights."

Tt eSPORTS Cronos Headset On Modders Inc

"The highs and mid-range sound very clear and full and don’t have a hint of the tinny sound. Bass reproduction was very good as well. Bass frequencies seem to fill the ear cups but do not drown out the other frequencies. Overall sound quality is good and it does not matter if you’re watching movies, listening to music, or playing games. The Thermaltake Cronos Gaming Headset is very comfortable to wear as it is light weight and Thermaltake went to great lengths to make sure that the Thermaltake Cronos Gaming Headset is comfortable no matter how long it is worn."

Phoronix Review The Silverstone PS08 Mid Tower Chassis

"At the end of the day I am quite pleased with the SilverStone Precision PS08... the PS08 case is great bargain when considering it retails for just $35~40 USD. I'm happy with the purchase and will likely be buying more of the PS08 when needing to add more micro-ATX systems to the automated test farm."

Silverstone Milo ML05 Mini Chassis On Benchmark Reviews

"Requiring an SFX power supply is a given, and thankfully SilverStone offers some great options to pair with the ML05. Overall, there just isn’t anything else available if you’re looking for this small of an HTPC – the ML05 is essentially one-of-a-kind. It’s great that SilverStone has addressed a market that no one else has really cared to. I get the feeling it’ll help them get a head start on some of these rumored “Steam Machines…” Time will ultimately tell of course, but we could see an entire new segment of cases pop up within a few weeks – cases like the ML05 may be a bigger market than anyone has yet realized. Even if that market never fully materializes, the ML05 will still fulfill a niche that few cases can. Although it stands alone in a relatively new and unique corner of the market, it’s a solid option."

Bitfenix Ronin Mid Tower Chassis A Winner Writes TweakTown

"We were very pleased with the amount of gear we were able to cram into this mid-tower, and that it stood strong and willing to take on more abuse if necessary. The BitFenix Ronin is a winner in my book, and love it or hate it, BitFenix is always thinking of how to get the next leg up on the market. The Ronin is again proof that they are doing things right."
