Title: Affiliate Cases and PSUs
Post by: Zeus on December 08, 2013, 11:47:25 PM
If you're looking for a new case to house your gear, there are really some great choices right now. Even if you're building a small PC - or just want something basic, there are really some great choices. A few years ago, everything was all pimped out and you had a very hard time finding a nice, classy case. Thanks to Lian Li and Fractal Design, they have kept their feet on the ground. Cases like the Fractal Design Define XL R2 Case at NikkTech (http://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/pc-hardware/pc-cases/2714-fractal-design-define-xl-r2-computer-case) show that classy still exists. The Xigmatek Aquila Micro ATX PC Chassis at TechnologyX (http://www.technologyx.com/featured/xigmatek-aquila-micro-atx-case/) pushes the limits of classy into flashy, but they do it in a very elegant way. I like this case - a lot.

There is something to be said for a gaming chassis though. They bring a lot of flash and features to the party and still look nice. Case in point is the SilverStone Raven RV04 at APHNetworks (http://aphnetworks.com/reviews/silverstone_raven_rv04). The Cooler Master Storm Stryker Chassis over at TechnologyX (http://www.technologyx.com/featured/cooler-master-storm-stryker-quick-overview/) is not to be counted out though. I really like this open design and the layout of this case. All that said, the Antec GX700 at ComputingOnDemand (http://computingondemand.com/antec-gx700-review/) is a very awesome case that will appeal to war-themed FPS gamers everywhere. The color scheme is just downright slick. If you're on a tight budget though, something like the Cougar Spike Mini Gaming Case at Hardware360 (http://www.hardware-360.com/cougar-spike-mini-gaming-case-review/) is still a decent choice as it has nice features at a better price.

All of these cases above come without power supplies, so if you're doing a new build with a new box, make sure to check out the Corsair CS650M power supply at HardwareHeaven (http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1893/pg1/corsair-cs650m-power-supply-review-introduction.html). It's from a brand we've come to trust, but you should always take a look at a review before you spend your cash.
