Recently, I took a look at a really nice case from Inwin and found a few good things and a few bad things about it. Mostly good things. Well, when it showed up here, that case wasn't alone. It brought a friend, named simply the BUC. Part of Inwin's Destiny Lite series, the BUC is a gaming case with a whole lot of cool features to talk about. I see no reason to delay, so let's have a look now, shall we?
Not very long ago, there was a big flap on several Internet forums because Corsair decided to replace some aging power supply platforms without telling the public about it in minute detail. Thus, a lot of people with axes to grind suddenly found themselves with a whetstone to grind them against. The fact of the matter is, power supply OEMs sometimes like to freshen up their designs and this doesn't necessarily mean these designs are being skimped on. Today, I'm looking at the updated Corsair CX430 - version 2. Let's see what's changed, and what's stayed the same.
According to OCZ, it's one of those power supplies that can put out a lot of power (1000W) from within a relatively small size (175mm depth) with high efficiency (80 Plus Gold). But these claims alone aren't good enough for our readers. Can it put out 1000W? Is it as efficient as OCZ claims? Is this a "ZX" I'll remember 25 years from now? We're here to find out!
we are going to be taking a look at a unit that’s been on the market for a little while, the Corsair AX750 power supply. With the AX750 being based off of the Seasonic X series, we have a pretty good idea how well this platform can perform. Will the AX750 show that it has what it takes stand with its brothers, or will it have to bow down to them instead?
Once in a while, I like to review something a little different from the usual power supply. Today is just such an occasion. Inwin Development has asked me to review their new Dragon Rider case. Some of you may already know that I am a fantasy novelist, and because of that I just couldn't turn this opportunity down. Come on in, and we'll try to do some dragon riding.
Seasonic has been updating their flagship X-Series units for a little while now. We first saw the evidence of this a little while back when we had a look at their then new X-560 unit. Today, I'm looking at the X-760, a freshening up of the older X-750. That unit performed pretty well but had a few things Seasonic wanted to improve on. Let's find out how well they made out with that.
Here lately I have been going out of the normal and reviewing a few things other than PSU's. Today is no exception, as I am going to be taking a look at a brand new case from Xigmatek, the Elysium. The first thing that one should notice about this case is its massive size. It is geared toward the XL-ATX Form Factor for boards like the EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI. The Elysium offers several features that cater to a power hungry configuration.
Lately, the motherboard options for Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs has been growing considerably. Zotac is one of the main companies that feeding the growth. Offering up several motherboards for the SFF community. Today we are going to take a look at one of their ITX based boards geared toward the H55 Chipset, the Zotac H55ITX-C-E. Zotac wants users to take small computing to a whole new level of performance.
