Author: Guest_Jim_*


Thermaltake has unveiled four new Power Cover Edition cases, the Core V71, Core V51, Suppressor F51, and Suppressor F31. The Core V71 and Suppressor F51 are both full towers while the Core V51 and Suppressor F31 are mid towers. Both Core chassis support micro ATX to E-ATX motherboards and can take up to a 420 mm radiator for liquid cooling, or 200 mm case fans with a long GPU. The Core V71 also hides a pair of 200 mm case fans behind the front dust filter, with a third on top, while a 140 mm fan in the back pulls the air out. The Core V51, being a smaller case has two 120 mm in the front and a third in the back to pull air out.

The Suppressor cases both have a modular sound-damping design to keep your computer quiet while it runs, and still supports cooling fans up to 200 mm for liquid cooling with single, dual, and triple radiators. The cases also utilize a tool-free design for installing and removing storage drives, and feature hidden drive bays on the back panel, if you want the clean look those allow for.

Author: Nick Harezga


Thermaltake has announced the addition of two cases to the Core series with the X5 and X5 Riing Edition. The two cases share a similar cube shaped design while the Riing Edition includes a pair of green 140mm Riing fans.

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 10:32AM
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

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.

A portion of the ATX-type PSU bay, as well as two 2.5-inch drive trays, are located in the GamerStorm Cube’s bottom-right chamber, while the bulk of the PSU bay and some of the 120mm fan intake are located in the bottom-left chamber.

Pricing and availability of the GamerStorm Cube case has not yet been announced by DEEPCOOL.

DEEPCOOL has announced the first case to join its GAMER STORM product line, the TriStellar. The TriStellar presents an extremely unique design, dividing components into three separate compartments instead of a traditional single tower design. The three chamber design helps to more effectively dissipate heat with full size GPUs installed in the top compartment and attached to the motherboard via a PCIe cable. An included 90mm fan provides airflow over the GPU and up to two 2.5" SSDs. A Mini-ITX motherboard can be installed in one of the bottom chambers with enough room for larger air coolers or all-in-one liquid coolers. The final chamber holds the power supply with two spaces for hot-pluggable 3.5" hard drives and a single 5.25" drive. The TriStellar will be available in June at an MSRP of $399.99.

Thermaltake's Core X9 case is a unique take on the E-ATX market, as you can see in the OCC review, and now it is getting a new paint job. The Thermaltake Core X9 Snow Edition takes that case and gives it a pure white appearance inside and out, which should help it stand out even more in your setup. The Core X9 features a dual chamber design, with the top chamber containing the majority of the components, and the lower housing the PSU and drive bays. Cooling support is extremely large, as it can fit up to 20 120mm fans, 13 140mm fans, or four 200mm fans, plus any combination of those you see fit. A 200mm fan is installed in the front and a 120mm in the rear to give you a headstart. It also supports water cooling, with 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" tubing possible, plus up to a 480mm radiator. If you need even more room, grab a second Core X9 case and stack them, so one can house your hardware and the other all your watercooling needs.

The Core X9 has three 5.25" drive bays on the front, with a hard drive cage fitting either six 3.5" or 2.5" drives. There's also a hidden slot by the motherboard tray for one 3.5" or two 2.5" drives. The drive cages can all be customized to fit your needs, too. Four USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out are on the side of the case, as is a large window. Both the window and I/O panel can be changed around to match your style, so they can be on either the left or right side of the case. CPU coolers up to 250mm in height, video cards up to 590mm in length, and power supplies up to 200mm long are all supported by the Core X9.

The Thermaltake Core X9 Snow Edition is available soon for $179.99.
