BenchmarkReviews Lost For Words On Tt Core V21 Chassis - Dizzying? Unparalleled?

"The functionality of the Core V21 is – I’m not even sure there’s a word for it – dizzying? Unparalleled? I was able to relocate a 240mm radiator and fans from the top of a horizontal motherboard tray, flip the case on its side to a more traditional vertical orientation, and replace the Corsair H100i in a top exhaust location in a few seconds."

And The Star Of The Show Is... Bitfenix Pandora Chassis On eTeknix

"The star of the show is the LCD display, it’s certainly unique and I’ve never seen another consumer ready chassis with one. Although I have seen some modders do something similar. It’s pretty simple to use and it’s a great way of customising your system"

Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler Review On MadShrimps

"Noctua has raised the bar once more for high end air cooling products: the NH-D15 is without a doubt a stellar performer, in combination with the two included brilliant 140mm PWM fans it still keeps noise level reduced to a minimum. Even when running the D15 with a single centered fan the cooling performance is more than adequate to cool down your overclocked processors. Noctua has provided every accessory you need with this NH-D15, from the big thermal paste syringe to the Low Noise Adapters, everything you will need is included."

Thermaltake Core V21 One Of The Best Chassis Ever Reviewed Reports eTeknix

"Thermaltake have really outdone themselves this time, the Core V21 is one of the best chassis I’ve ever reviewed! As a single chassis, it’s absolutely stunning, the interior has an incredible amount of space to work with, although that comes as little surprise given that this is one of the biggest cube-style chassis on the market. There’s room for an extensive water cooling configuration thanks to front, top and rear fan/radiator mounts, which is helped along in a big way by the modular mounting rails in the top of the chassis. There’s no compromise here at all, with a large high quality fan in the front, extensive filtered ventilation throughout and superb cable management.

Treat yourself to a second Core V21 and things get even better. The chassis is incredibly easy to stack and opens up a wealth of configuration options. You can stack them vertically as I did today, or you can join them horizontally. This is thanks to the interchangeable side panels, as you can put the base of the chassis on the top and turn the case upside down if you so desired, it’s really up to you how you want to orientate and customise your build. For chassis modders, the Core V21 is a blank slate, ready for whatever crazy ideas you want, although it’s just as impressive in its stock configuration."

TechPowerUp Impressed By SilverStones RV05 Chassis

"The fans within the RV05 are perfectly placed to aid in keeping temperatures down, and the unique interior allows for hot air due to GPU and CPU to rise and exit through the top. To further push the envelope, SilverStone has also put a ton of effort into engineering many of the chassis' aspects in as intricate a manner as possible. This goes from the interior with its completely toolless HDD cage to the exterior with its complex spring-loaded locking mechanism for both side panels and on to the perfectly shaped dust filter on the chassis' underside or the V-shaped LED in the front."

Tt Core X1 SFF Chassis On ThinkComputers

"Thermaltake’s brand new Core X Series is another step in the right direction for the company. One thing that Thermaltake has done lately has made what I call “builders cases”. These are cases that are designed for builders. What I mean by that is that they are easy to build in, have feature real builders want and give you the option to change the case around if you want. The Core X1 is no exception to this. The two side panels are interchangeable, the front control module can be moved to the opposite side and the bottom of the case is removable so you can stack this case with another X1."

Bitfenix Flo Headsets On APH Networks

"Carrying a regular retail price of around $80, and costing around $40 to $50 at major online retailers at press time, it is actually quite impressive in terms of what you get for the money. From a physical perspective, the BitFenix Flo is a well-constructed headset, which is rare for this price range. It uses high quality plastic, and I found it very comfortable to use day to day."

MadShrimps Impressed With Steelseries Siberia Elite Prism

"Siberia Elite Prism is a slight improvement over the original Elite version which features better comfort for the ear-cups, a new, more flexible microphone, a slightly different color scheme for the white version but also a better design of the top frame. The bundled sound card can be used with PCs and laptops via USB, but the Elite Prism also comes with the necessary cables in order to connect the headset on analog to sound cards and mobile gadgets."

LANOC Check Out The NH-D15 From Noctua

"currently the trend has been to go with water cooling, most people don’t seem to believe that air cooling can compete. This obviously isn’t true, a lot of great heatsinks will still out perform the 120mm water cooling kits that most people are picking up. Even when you step up to 240mm kits the biggest heatsinks like the NH-D15 tested today are still out performing them in most situations. It really isn’t until you get into custom water cooling loops that you really see performance that isn’t possible in air cooling. The NH-D15 proved that today in all of our testing. On top of that I found it to be deceptively quiet and easy to install. There really isn’t anyone else who makes the installation as simple as what Noctua does with their heatsinks."
