Fractal Design Announces its Newest Line of Cases, the Core X3 Series

Category: Cases
Posted: June 3, 2014 04:50PM
Author: ClayMeow

Last month, Fractal Design announced a new line of cases called the Core x5 Series. Today, the manufacturer announced that its expanding the Core family with the addition of the new x3 Series. The main distinguishing feature of the x3 Series cases is a vertical hard drive bracket, which can hold up to three 3.5" drives and three 2.5" drives simultaneously. According to Fractal Design, the unique vertical design allows for superior airflow.

The x3 Series comes in four flavors, all at an aggressive price point. The Core 3300 (MSRP US$69.99/€59.99/£54.99) is a wide-body ATX mid-tower with support for CPU coolers as tall as 185mm. It comes with two pre-installed Silent Series R2 140mm fans, and can support one 240/280mm radiator in the front and a 240mm radiator in the top. Aside from the vertical HDD bracket that supports six drives, two additional SSDs can be placed behind the motherboard tray. The Core 2300 (MSRP US$49.99/€44.99/£39.99) is a compact full-ATX case with similar specs to its bigger brother, but its compactness means it can only support CPU coolers up to 162mm tall, includes two 120mm fans instead of 140mm, and only has room for one additional SSD outside of the vertical bracket, which happens to be behind the PSU area this time around.

The Core 1300 (MSRP US$49.99/€44.99/£39.99) is a compact micro ATX mini-tower that still supports seven total fans with two 120mm fans included, but only has room for two 240mm radiators. In addition, the vertical bracket has been shrunk to support only two 3.5" drives and two 2.5" drives, but like the Core 2300, there's room for an additional SSD behind the PSU area. Lastly, there's the Core 1100 (MSRP US$39.99/€34.99/£29.99), which is also a compact micro ATX case, but on an even smaller scale. The vertical bracket can only support two 3.5" drives or three 2.5" drives, or one of each size. It also only comes with one 120mm fan, with no mention on whether additional fans are supported.

If you're in the market for a sleek, low-cost case with support for most of your liquid cooling needs, the Fractal Design Core x3 Series certainly has you covered.

Three New PC Cases Unveiled by Corsair

Category: Cases
Posted: June 3, 2014 03:36PM
Author: bp9801

Corsair is no stranger to the world of computer computers, and has recently introduced three new ones to its lineup. Two of them are in the Graphite Series, while the third is part of its Carbide Series. The Graphite Series 780T is a full tower case with a uniquely designed exterior that should help set it apart from others. It has a large side window panel featuring an easy-open latch, so accessing the interior shouldn't be a problem. Inside are nine expansion slots for any number of add-in cards, as well as enough room to fit two 360mm radiators for an extreme watercooling setup, plus nine hard drives. A built-in three-mode fan controller lets you pinpoint the cooling potential of the three included AF-140 140mm fans, with quick access on the top I/O panel. That I/O panel also includes two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, audio in/out, and a power button in the vein of a Start/Stop ignition button like you'd find on certain cars.

The other Graphite Series member is the 380T, which is a portable mini-ITX case. It honestly looks like the 780T got chopped in half, as the styling of the smaller case echoes the big brother. There's a windowed side panel with an easy-open latch, and inside is room for four 3.5/2.5-inch hard drives and a full-length graphics card. Five fans can also fit inside, or a 240mm radiator for the watercooling crowd. A Corsair AF-140 140mm fan and AF-120 120mm fan are included by default, which can be controlled by that three-mode fan controller also seen on the 780T. Two USB 3.0 ports, audio in/out, and that same Start/Stop power button adorn the top I/O panel.

The Carbide Series case is the Air 240, which can fit either micro ATX or mini-ITX setups. It's a cube-shaped case, much like the Air 540, so the hottest running components will benefit from the best possible airflow. Hard drives and the power supply can remain out of sight from the side panel window, and also not block any airflow. Three AF-120 120mm fans are included in the Air 240, and users can even add a 240mm radiator (or two) if they desire. Two USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out reside on the front I/O panel.

All three Corsair cases are available black or white colors, with the Graphite Series 380T and Carbide Series Air 240 launching this August. The Graphite Series 780T follows in September. Pricing on the Graphite Series 380T comes in at $129.99, the Graphite Series 780T between $179.99 and $189.99, and the Carbide Series Air 240 between $89.99 and $99.99.

be quiet! Unveils its First Case at Computex, Coming This September

Category: Cases
Posted: June 2, 2014 06:38PM
Author: ClayMeow


German company be quiet! has been manufacturing power supplies and cooling solutions for years, but now it is ready to venture into the realm of cases. At Computex this week, be quiet! is lifting the veil on its first case, and if I can speak subjectively for a moment, it looks damn sweet.

The case supports ATX, µATX, and mini ITX motherboards. While dimensions were not provided, it seems fairly large, featuring three 5.25" bays and seven 3.5" bays, with support for two SSDs behind the motherboard and another two inside the hard drive tray. It comes with pre-installed with two 140mm Pure Wings 2 fans in the front and one 120mm Pure Wings 2 fan in the back, with the option of two more 120/140mm at top, one 120/140mm on the bottom, and one 120mm on the side panel. All air intakes have filters. If you're into water cooling, be quiet! certainly has you covered, with room for a 120/140mm radiator in the front, a 120mm at the back, and a 120/140mm or 240/280mm at the top. The case has room for a CPU cooler up to 170mm tall, PSU up to 290mm long, and a GPU up to 290mm with all the hard drive cages installed or 400mm without one of the cages. Lastly, I/O is provided at the top in the form of two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and mic and headphone.

The 0.7mm SECC steel case will be launching in September with an MSRP of US$129 (€119) and will only be available in black, but with the choice of three colors for the inserts and accents: orange (shown), silver, and black.

In addition to the case, be quiet! announced that its Straight Power family of PSUs will finally be making its way to North America with the new Straight Power 10, also launching in September. The SP10 line will feature the new SilentWings 3 for ultra quiet operation and come in 400W, 500W, 600W, and 700W for a fixed cable variation, and 500W, 600W, 700W, and 800W for a modular variation.

If that wasn't enough, be quiet! also announced a new entry-level CPU cooler called Pure Rock. The Pure Rock features four 6mm heatpipes and comes equipped with a 120mm Pure Wings 2 PWM fan with 26db(A) at full load and 130W TDP. Priced at a mere US$34.90 (€29.90), I'm really curious to see how it holds up once one of our reviewers gets a hold of it.

Prospective shoppers in need of a new case have a budget-friendly option to consider from Phanteks, as the company has just announced its Enthoo Pro full tower case. Even though Phanteks is aiming this case at those on a budget, it certainly isn't skimping on the features. The entire case is assembled with screws instead of rivets, so users can strip it apart and mod to their hearts content. It also means easy access for whatever hardware you're planning to pack inside. Speaking of inside, the Enthoo Pro has a rather large CPU backplate cutout for quick setup of CPU coolers, grommeted wire routing holes, support for multiple radiators (up to four installation areas), and even a power supply cover to keep things extra tidy. There is also a closed HDD panel to help improve frame rigidity, and a removable SSD bracket that can be installed in two different locations. Cooling is provided by a 200mm fan in the front and a 140mm one in the rear, with options for 120, 140, and 200mm in more spots. Front I/O support includes two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and audio in/out.

The Phanteks Enthoo Pro comes in window and windowless models, with that power supply cover only available on the windowless case. Both will be available later this month for $89.99 (windowless) and $99.99 (window).

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.
