Author: Guest_Jim_*


Last year, Corsair announced its BULLDOG case and LAPDOG gaming control center, and today have announced their launch. The BULLDOG case, for those who do not remember, is designed for the living room, with a size comparable to that of modern gaming consoles, but with the features an PC gamer wants. Inside its angular design is room for a mini-ITX motherboard, Corsair's SF600 SFX PSU, three 2.5 in drives or one 2.5 in and a 3.5 in, a full length graphics card, and liquid cooling systems for both the CPU and GPU. The BULLDOG comes with an Intel Z170 mini-ITX motherboard, the already mentioned power supply, and a Hydro Series H5 SF CPU cooler, so all you need to do is supply the other components and you can be ready to game. The DIY kit has an MSRP of $399, but complete systems will be available in the future through Micro Center in North America with different configurations. Currently, the BULLDOG is only available in North America and Australia.

The LAPDOG is a peripheral designed for those who want to enjoy PC gaming without having to be in front of a desk. It is a full-size portable gaming control center that you can mount a Corsair K70 or K65 keyboard into, along with an 11" x 11" textured area for your mouse. It connects to your computer with a 16-foot USB 3.0 cable, but also features an integrated powered USB 3.0 hub with four ports. LAPDOG is initially available in North America, the UK, France, Germany, and Scandinavia, with an MSRP of $119.99 and a two-year warranty.

Two New Cases from CRYORIG Shown at Computex

Category: Cases
Posted: May 24, 2016 11:35AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

CRYORIG has revealed two cases, its first entries in the PC case market, with two uncommon designs. The OLA is inspired by the Mac Pro with a cylindrical design, designed with a focus on performance and cooling, and the TAKU is also a monitor stand that slides open to allow easy access to the hardware inside. Both support mini ITX motherboards.

With its cylindrical design, the OLA has zero airflow dead space to keep all of the components cool. The CPU, GPU, and PSU also have their own compartments, to keep heat from overflowing. The GPU compartment is large enough to hold a full-length GPU, and it supports a 100 W TDP Core i7 CPU, so you can have the power you need for VR. The case has a release target of Q2 2017, as it is still a work in progress.

The TAKU is another ITX case, but with a more traditional rectangular design. It is made from 3 mm thick aluminum so it can be lightweight but still strong enough to support the weight of a monitor sitting on top of it, and has four wood legs at its base. The system tray is designed like a sliding drawer, so the user can easily pull it out to access the mainboard, GPU, and HDD compartments. It also has ducts on both sides for USB cables. It has room enough for a 250 mm long GPU and a 3.5 in and 2.5 in device, or two 2.5 in devices. Like it OLA, the TAKU is a work in progress as well, but it has a targeted release date of either late 2016 or Q1 2017.

CRYORIG will be holding an "Ask Anything" live stream during Computex on June 1, at 9:15 AM (GMT+8). It will be aired on CRYORIG's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/CRYORIG/live.

Author: bp9801


During CES this year, Corsair unveiled several new cases, with the 400C and 400Q launching soon after the show. The other new case, the SPEC-ALPHA, was going to take a bit longer, but now the wait is over as the Corsair SPEC-ALPHA is available to purchase. The SPEC-ALPHA features a unique angular design that sets it apart from other cases, while offering plenty of cooling and hardware potential inside. It's a mid-tower case with a tool-free design that can fit up to an ATX motherboard, video cards up to 380mm long, CPU coolers up to 156mm high, and a 190mm long power supply.

The side window can show off your components, while the three included 120mm fans can keep things cool, thanks to the built-in fan controller (up to five total fans can be installed). If water cooling is your thing, a 240mm radiator can fit inside the front of the SPEC-ALPHA, with a 120mm rad in the rear. Three 3.5" drive bays and four 2.5" drive bays offer plenty of storage options, while the Direct Airflow Path design means no 5.25" bays to mess up the cooling. Inside there are also cable routing cutouts and tie downs to keep everything neat and tidy, further helping get the air directly where it's needed. Two USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out adorn the front of the case, while the rear has seven expansion slots to perfectly fit those ATX motherboards.

The Corsair SPEC-ALPHA is available now in black/grey, white/red, and the previously unknown black/red color schemes. Each case is $79.99 and comes with a two-year warranty.

Thermaltake Unveils Core W100 and WP100 Cases

Author: bp9801


Hot off the heels of the earlier announced Core X71 and Core X31 cases come the Core W100 and WP100 from Thermaltake. These two cases feature a fully dismantable modular design; everything you see in the case can be taken apart and reassembled however you wish for a custom build all your own. It's also a pretty good learning experience in just how your new case goes together. The Core W100 is something Thermaltake calls a super tower case, as it's a massive 26.7" x 12.2" x 26.7" behemoth. Inside it can fit more hard drives than most consumers know what to do with, as up to 10 are possible. Water cooling support is pretty high with the W100, as a 280mm radiator can be installed in the bottom, a 120 or 140mm rad in the rear, up to a 420mm rad in the front, and up to a massive 600mm rad at the top. For those on air, it's quite extensive, too, as three 120/140mm fans can fit up front, four in the top, one each in the rear, three in the bottom, and 12 on the left and right sides. If those aren't big enough, up to three 200mm fans fit in the top and six each on either side.

The W100 can stack with the P100 pedastal case to morph into the WP100, which lets you house more water cooling gear (the sides can hold anything from a 120mm rad to a 560mm rad), pure storage heaven that bumps the 10 HDD/SSD count to 20, or even dual systems. Internal clearance is quite high in the case, as 200mm is possible for the CPU cooler height, 470mm long video cards can fit inside with the HDD rack (635mm without), and a PSU up to 180mm with three bottom fans or 220mm with two bottom fans. Four USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out adorn the front I/O panel, as do three external 5.25" bays. Motherboard support ranges from XL-ATX all the way down to Mini-ITX, with even the SSI MEB server motherboards a possibility. Magnetic dust filters adorn the sides and top to help keep particles out and for easy cleaning.

Thermaltake bills the W100 and WP100 cases as the ultimate DIY builds (plus server and workstation), and it's pretty easy to see why. Both cases arrive at the end of February, with the W100 setting you back $329.99 and the WP100 $439.99.

RIOTORO Launches the Prism CR1280 Case

Category: Cases
Posted: January 6, 2016 11:32AM
Author: bp9801


RIOTORO isn't a name you should be familiar with right now, given that it's a brand new company, but it is formed by former Corsair and NVIDIA employees who wanted to do something a little different. RIOTORO has a presence at CES where it's showing off its first product, the Prism CR1280 case. The Prism CR1280 is a full tower case fully decked out in RGB LED lighting, letting users customize its look from over 256 different colors. The front panel trim and dual LED fans can have their color customized to whatever suits your mood or build, with the front panel controls providing easy access. The front panel not only lets you select the case lighting, but also the fan speed: Performance Mode for maximum cooling and Low-Key Mode for silent operation.

Inside the case are separate compartments for the motherboard, power supply, and drives to keep everything nice and cool. The dual front and rear fans help direct airflow over the motherboard, CPU, and video card, with support for more fans and water cooling to let you build to your heart's content. A 140mm radiator can be installed in the rear, three 120mm rads up top, and two 120/140mm rads in the front, so water cooling shouldn't be an issue with the Prism CR1280. The front I/O panel features two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0, and audio in/out, as well as the lighting and fan speed controls. Motherboard support ranges from Mini-ITX to eATX, with eight expansion slots in the rear. Video cards over 400mm in length aren't an issue, and neither are CPU coolers up to 180mm in height or PSUs up to 2200m in length. Cable routing holes with grommets are plentiful on the motherboard tray, so you can hide your wires for a clean and tidy build.

The RIOTORO Prism CR1280 case arrives next month for $139.99 and comes with a two-year warranty.

Thermaltake Introduces the Core X71 and Core X31 Cases

Category: Cases

Author: bp9801


CES time means plenty of new product, with Thermaltake introducing two new members to its Core line of computer cases. The Core X71 and Core X31 feature a design with water cooling in mind, with plenty of space inside for whatever kind of rig you want to build. The Core X71 is a full tower case, with the Core X31 a mid-tower, making one or the other ideal for system builders. The Core X71 features a dual chamber design that places the hard drives, PSU, fans, and radiators in the lower compartment, with everything else in the top one. It allows the motherboard, video card(s), CPU, and other high heat gear to be isolated away and get as much cooling directed at it as possible. The Core X71 also has a fully modular design, so you can remove the HDD/SSD cage and set it wherever you wish inside the case. Radiators can be installed in multiple locations thanks to the case's 250mm width, with the lower chamber even supporting a 360mm rad on either side. Two 140mm Riing fans are pre-installed in the front of the case, with a 140mm in the rear to help aid in airflow if you plan to stick with air cooling. Or for water, if you're only doing a partial water build.

The Core X31 retains the modular concept of its big brother, but lacks the dual chamber design since it's a smaller case. The X71 features a "2+5" bay design, but the X31 is only a "2+3" design, but that doesn't limit your creativity. It still allows for all manner of water cooling inside, with a triple 120mm rad, dual 140mm, or even 200mm case fans possible. It also is 250mm wide just like the Core X71, so fitting your gear inside shouldn't be an issue. A magnetic dust filter up top helps keep particles out of your case, with super-fine filters on the front and bottom helping to block dust, too.

Both the Thermaltake Core X71 and X31 can fit video cards up to 420mm in length inside, a CPU cooler up to 180mm in height, and a PSU up to 220mm long. The X71 can even fit a 480mm radiator at the front of the case (X31 is only a 360mm rad), so size certainly isn't an issue with these cases. Each one has a front I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0, and audio in/out, with eight expansion slots each at the rear. The Thermaltake Core X71 and Core X31 will be available by the end of January, with the Core X71 priced at $149.99 and the Core X31 at $99.99. The Core X31 also features an RGB edition, which replaces the three pre-installed 120mm Riing fans with three 120mm RGB Riing fans. It carries a $129.99 price and launches at the same time as the others.

Corsair Unveils the Carbide SPEC-ALPHA, 400Q, and 400C Cases

Author: bp9801


CES kicks off in a couple of days, but plenty of companies like to get a headstart on things. One company is Corsair, which has three new entries to its Carbide series of cases. Two of the Carbide cases, the 400Q and 400C, are pretty typical of what you expect from Corsair. However, it's the SPEC-ALPHA that really changes up the game, with its angular lines, unique style, and two different color options. The SPEC-ALPHA features a sharp, stand-out design with those angular lines and a shape that sets it apart from the rest. It features three 120mm LED fans for cooling and lighting options, with the interior featuring a Direct Airflow Path to help keep everything inside from overheating. There's no 5.25" cage inside, so the front intake can directly hit both the CPU and GPU. The three included fans can be controlled via a three-speed switch on the front of the case, plus the front can fit a 240mm radiator for those going under water. The SPEC-ALPHA can fit an ATX motherboard, up to four SSDs, has support for USB 3.0, and features a large side window to show off your system. It also comes in black or red for your case color, with the inside of both in all-black.

Flipping to a little bit more of a traditional case, we have Corsair's new Carbide 400Q and 400C. The 400Q features sound dampening material to keep your system from being heard, while the 400C features a full-sized case window on the left side to show off the internals. Both feature the Direct Airflow technology to keep your components nice and cool with a 140mm fan in the front and a 120mm in the rear. More fans can be installed, or you can go for water cooling, as both cases feature support for a 360mm radiator in the front, a 240mm rad up top, and a 120mm rad on the rear. Dust filters are featured on both cases, as is tool-free drive installation and two modular covers for the PSU and 3.5" drives. A full-sized ATX motherboard and multiple GPUs are also supported in the two cases. The 400Q features sound dampening material in the front, side, and top panels, while the 400C has the left side panel replaced with a window to better highlight what you're running.

The Corsair Carbide SPEC-ALPHA, 400Q, and 400C can be seen during CES later this week. The 400Q and 400C will be available for purchase next month for $99.99 each, with the SPEC-ALPHA coming in March for $79.99 for either the black or red color. Each case comes with a two-year warranty.

The Galactic Empire Approves of This Star Destroyer PC Case Mod

Posted: December 31, 2015 12:06PM
Author: bp9801


PC case mods cover an entire spectrum, from the simple to the extreme, but every so often you see one that simply makes you go, "wow." That's the feeling from this one, which doesn't really look like a case at all, but something you might find on the big screen. Builder Sander van der Velden, aka Asphiax, decided he didn't want a normal case or even a normal modded one. No, he took a case and turned it into a Star Destroyer, complete with fiber optic lighting, water cooling, and plenty of 3D printed goodness. The Star Destroyer Asphiax used is a Venator-class from the Prequel Trilogy and he's dubbed it the "Yazi."

There are no dimensions of the Yazi right now or even pictures of it all the way completed, but what's shown so far is impressive. The Star Destroyer's frame is made from aluminum, with 3D printing handling the fine details on the craft. More than 50 meters of fiber optic lighting helps give it the appearance of an actual starship, with the sides and bridges all lit up. Water cooling inside isn't done yet, but it's a closed loop design that hits both the CPU and video card. There is a drawn layout of the loop to give you an idea of where the parts go, with the radiator looking to fit inside the bow of the ship and the power supply at the engines.

Asphiax plans to show off Yazi during CES in about a week, so you can see it in its finished glory there. Once it gets there and is fully operational, expect to see more pictures of it at that point.

Back in May of this year, DEEPCOOL announced that its Tristellar case was the first to join its impressive GAMER STORM product line. The case was available to purchase this last June for roughly $400, and now DEEPCOOL has announced that it has teamed up with one of the most distinguished modders, Bill Owen, to debut the Tristellar S Mod. This latest offering from DEEPCOOL is an ITX chassis that is based on a spaceship and Star Wars design. The Tristellar S Mod features an intriguing paint job, custom air ducts, side windows that show off GPUs and SSDs, and the signature of Bill Owen. All of the baseline features found within the original Tristellar case are present, but with DEEPCOOL manufacturing only 50 units of the Tristellar S Mod, the latest case may prove even more popular than the first.

The DEEPCOOL Tristellar S Mod chassis will be available globally sometime this month, and features a hefty MSRP of $599.99. More information on the case can be found on the official product page.
