Fractal Design Announces the Node 804 MicroATX Case

Author: bp9801

Fractal Design has been gaining in popularity over the last couple years, and earlier today at CeBIT 2014 it debuted a new case. Dubbed the Node 804, this MicroATX case features a dual chamber layout to help keep everything cool and give maximum airflow where needed. The case features three Silent Series R2 120mm fans, but can support seven more if you really need the cooling. Water cooling systems are also a possibility in the Node 804, since the dual chamber design shouldn't impede a full water cooling setup (with support for one 280mm, one 240mm, and two 120mm radiators at the same time). Storage won't be an issue with the case either, as it can support eight 3.5" and two 2.5" drives, plus there are two extra spots for 3.5" or 2.5" drives.

Video cards up to 320mm in length can be installed, however that shrinks to 290mm if a fan is installed in the front lower spot. Five expansion slots are included on the rear of the Node 804, so you could run a multi GPU setup if you desire. Plus there's a windowed side panel can show off everything in the interior. Two USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out make up the front I/O connections, along with the usual power button and HDD activity light.

The Fractal Design Node 804 comes in all-black (even the interior), with a brushed aluminum front for a unique look. It will be available this May for $109.99 / €99.99 / £79.99.

Author: tpsreport

Lian-Li will be showcasing two mid-tower computer cases in March at CeBIT 2014. The PC-B16 and PC-A61 both share similar external designs and have the same internal design. Because of the similarities, both cases measures 230mm (W) x 490mm (D) x 530mm (H) and weigh just under 14 1/2 pounds each. The only difference between the two is that the PC-B16 has a noise-reducing front door.

Each case features an all-aluminum construction, two color options (black exterior/interior or white exterior with bare aluminum interior), a very generous 30mm of space behind the motherboard tray for cable management, and individual 3.5-inch drive bays that can be detached to create 420mm of space for a graphics card. If the drive bays are left in place, you have 280mm of space to play with. Cooling is provided by two 120mm front intake fans, a 120mm rear exhaust, and two 140mm top exhausts, and can hold a CPU cooler as tall as 170mm.

Lian-Li states that "as these two new cases are not in the final stages yet, we do welcome your feedback, and after making changes according to community input, we will debut the finalized PC-B16 and PC-A61 at CeBIT." To provide your input on the cases, head over to the Lian-Li blog and comment.

Corsair Unveils Its First Mini-ITX Case

Author: Tobias Thydal

About six months ago, Corsair unveiled its largest case to date, the Obsidian Series 900D, which was welcomed with open arms by many enthusiasts as it allowed them to build their ultimate PC. Now the company is ready to unveil its smallest one, the Obsidian Series 250D.

The 250D is a mini-ITX case that caters to a different audience, but that does not mean Corsair took any shortcuts when designing this case. Despite being a mini-ITX case, it has room for a 290 mm long graphics card, so there is no need to run at a lower resolution just because you opted for a case that is easier to carry around. There is also room for a standard 200 mm PSU, two tool-free 3.5"/2.5" combo bays, two tool-free 2.5" only bays, and a full-size 5.25" drive bay. To ensure that all the components stay cool, the case has room for up to five fans with two being included from the start. It is also possible to use a 120/140 mm radiator in the front and a 120/240 mm radiator in the side. 

The case is a tiny thing with dimensions of 11.4x10.9x13.81 inches and a weight of only 9.7 lbs, so it should be no problem carrying it to various LANs, even when it is filled with components.

The MSRP is $89.99 in the US and it should be available in later in January.

In total the case has room for eight fans, with most spots accepting 120 mm or 140 mm. For those interested in liquid cooling, the 760T has room for radiators ranging from 120 mm to 360mm on the top, rear, front, and bottom.

Not looking to expose your computer-building skills that much? Corsair is also launching the Graphite 730T, which has a very similar design but lacks the full-size side window. The 760T will have an MSRP of $179.99 for the black version or $189.99 for the artic white version while the 730T will be priced at $139.99 in black only. Both cases are to be available next month.

Lian Li has a new case coming to market soon, and it's one that can even fit a watercooling radiator on the side. The PC-10N case is an aluminum mid-tower that can fit a 240mm radiator on a hinged bracket. The bracket is located directly across from where the CPU is located, and it can easily be swung open to allow access to the motherboard. Lian Li has decided to forgo a traditional motherboard tray, as it instead uses a series of rails to help improve airflow and keep components cool. It also lowers the weight of the case too, which is always good to see when some fully loaded cases provide a nice workout just moving them around. Three fans are included inside the PC-10N, with two 120mm fans in front featuring air filters to keep out dust, and a 120mm fan in the rear. Another 120mm fan can be installed in the top of the case for even more airflow.

Three 5.25" bays provide room for any optical drives, while six 3.5" and one 2.5" bay inside provide plenty of storage room. Another 2.5" drive can be installed, just it won't be in one of the two HDD trays. The top HDD tray can be removed to improve airflow and allow for long video cards, with ones up to 16.9" possible. With the tray and the limit is a hair under 12", while CPU coolers are supported up to 155mm in height. The front panel I/O is located on the right side and features two USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out.

The Lian Li PC-10N will be available in October for $129.99, and comes in silver or black.

Many people probably have fond memories of the Cooler Master Stacker cases, but those haven't exactly been readily available for some time. The High Air Flow line has surged in popularity ever since the HAF 932 burst onto the scene, so Cooler Master did the only thing logical: it merged the HAF and Stacker lines into one case. Dubbed the HAF Stacker, it combines the storage capabilities and large interior space of the Stacker line with the extreme cooling potential of the HAF line, and adds in some modular features. It means the HAF Stacker is the perfect case (really cases) for any number of PC users, from the modders to the DIY builders to the newbies and everything else.

The CM HAF Stacker comes in three different models to better fit your needs. There's the full tower HAF Stacker 935, which combines both the 915R and 925 to form one unique case. You also have the 915R available separately, as well as the 915F, with the only difference between the two being a rear PSU or a front PSU. Both 915 cases are Mini-ITX, while the 925 supports ATX motherboards (and potentially larger). All three models can be combined into one massive tower for the ultimate PC potential. Cooler Maser has developed an intuitive rail system similar to the military's picatinny rail to allow for the cases to attached in two simple steps. It's a secure process that means the cases won't move on their own, which is definitely a good thing when they're all loaded up with hardware.

Cooler Master's HAF Stacker series will be available later this year, although prices and exact date aren't known at this time. Everyone attending PAX Prime this weekend can check the HAF Stacker out in person, and try not to drool while thinking of all the different possibilities.
