When building a new system, don't neglect your casing. Here, we check out six of the most popular budget, entry-level casings from Antec, Cooler Master, Gigabyte, Ikonik, NZXT and Thermaltake to see which is best.
With its outrageous dragon motif and red and black color scheme, the new Lian Li PC-P50R casing strikes a fierce figure. Designed specially for AMD systems using the "Dragon" platform, the PC-P50R, in true Lian Li tradition, is also made entirely from aluminum. We see if the dragon resides in this casing.
SilverStone's Raven RV01 made waves amongst DIY enthusiasts for being one of the first to come out with a 90-degree vertically-mounted casing in the market. Now, they are following that up with the Raven RV02, which SilverStone says is smaller yet better. We investigate further to reveal the truth.
The new ISK series from Antec is a new line of casings designed specifically for mini-ITX motherboards and the ISK300-65 is their maiden offering. We take a closer look at this pint-sized casing designed specially for mini-ITX and HTPC enthusiasts to see if it fits the bill.
Cooler Master's HAF 922 is a mid-tower casing that's actually a smaller version of their previous full tower HAF 932. Does it hold up well? We check it out.
SilverStone ventures into the very small form factor arena with its latest chassis design, the Sugo SG05. Meant for mini-ITX motherboards, this small chassis features a quiet 120mm fan, adequate ventilation and a respectable power supply. Is it good enough to build a decent system?
The IKONIK Ra X10 Liquid is a casing unlike any other. First seen last year at Computex 2008, it captured the attention and perhaps even the imagination of many, leading it to be praised by various tech media worldwide - us included. We investigated the casing in detail to see what the fuss is all about.
Street cred is very important amongst gamers, and this is especially so amongst the hardcore crowd. Fortunately, the new Cooler Master Storm Sniper casing has plenty of that, thanks to its rugged and gamer-centric design. But what's really underneath that imposing casing of black mesh? Find out in our review.
With the economic downturn hitting some pockets hard, it's probably a good time to go budget and Lian Li subsidiary, Lancool, may have just the thing for you with its Metal Boned series.
Retaining much of the good vibes from our last review of the Cooler Master Cosmos Storm casing, we take a look at their latest offering, the very promising Cooler Master HAF (High Air Flow) 932 to see how breezy this casing can be.
