Raidmax has long been a common name in computer cases and cooling solutions. While not necessarily known for over-the-top designs or cutting edge technology, their products have always been very competively priced. The chasis we are looking at here...

Raidmax has been around for years, and provided many enthusiasts with quality cases such as the popular Aura and IceCube. Their newest entrant to their “Elite” line of cases is the Skyline: A mid-tower ATX chassis with plenty of included...

When I first started this review, I was hesitant to move the components of my old P4 system into a new case; there is always something that can go wrong when dealing with electronic components and there is always that nail biting moment just before...
