REVIEW: be quiet! Pure Base 600 Case by James

be quiet! Pure Base 600 Case Review Reviewers thoughts

The be quiet! Pure Base 600 is a good Case and a good looking Case too, yet it seems to me a little stuck in the past. While there’s not much wrong with it overall, well apart form those grommet positions, its lack of a PSU shroud, untidy cabling and no illumination makes it seem somewhat expensive at £90.

BitFenix Portal Case Review Reviewers thoughts

If you’re looking for a modern looking, unique ITX Case then the BitFenix Portal is one of the best on the market today. It’s cleverly designed can house a state of the art powerful system and looks cool on the desktop. Just don’t expect it to keep the components cool…

BitFenix Shogun Case Review Reviewers thoughts

I’ve really rather enjoyed my time with the BitFenix Shogun and it’s obvious that BitFenix have put a lot of time and effort into the design of this Case. Thankfully it’s all paid off too as this is a Case that can not only house a mass of hardware but also show it off to its full potential.

Raijintek Asterion Plus Case Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s no doubt that the Raijintek Asterion Plus is the best case Rajintek have made to date. It is in fact so close to perfection, it seems all the more annoying as the small flaws here and there simply let down an excellent overall package.

be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Case Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s no doubt that the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 is one of the finest Cases we’ve ever seen here at pcG. It’s beautifully built, elegant in its styling and imposing (due to its size) on the desktop. It’s also packed with features too, but to get the most out of it is going to require not only a shed load of components but also a fair bit of effort too.

REVIEW: In Win 303 Case by James

In Win 303 Case Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s a lot to like about the In Win 303 especially when thinking about the asethetics and exterior design. It’s a good looking case with a smart looking neon illumination around the front panel controls. Unfortunately there’s little cable management around the motherboard itself and the GPU cooling out of the box is poor.

Streacom F12C Case Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s no doubt that the Streacom F12C is an interesting proposition when considering a PC Case for the Living Room. But it’s important to know its limitations and to ensure that you choose your components wisely. With that done the F12C will provide you with a great platform for Gaming and it will no doubt look good while it does it…

Raijintek Styx Case Review Reviewers thoughts

Installing a system into the Raijintek Styx is no easy task, and this is unfortunately made more awkward by certain aspects of its design. But once complete all of those installation woes quickly fade, as you admire what is undeniably a pretty and elegant little case.

REVIEW: be quiet! Silent Base 600 Case by James

be quiet! Silent Base 600 Case Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s no doubt that the be quiet! Silent Base 600 is a good case, it’s good looking, well made and does a good job of keeping your components cool. But with only one intake fan (come on be quiet!, that’s a bit stingy!) and a price of approximately £90, it still feels a little too expensive for my liking.

REVIEW: BitFenix Nova Case by James

Date: December 8, 2015
BitFenix Nova Case Review Reviewers thoughts

To bemoan the BitFenix Nova‘s low quality and or its lack of cooling would be to miss the point of this case entirely! This is a usable case, with a side window that can house a modern Gaming rig with ease, and it costs just £27! Although you might want to just add an additional fan or two…
