Corsair Carbide Spec-Alpha Case Review: Solid looks, feature packed, great value

The ATX Mid-Tower has always been a favorite of PC builders. It can be transported with relative ease, while still managing to hold a respectable amount of very high-end hardware. The Spec-Alpha is Corsair's latest entry to the market and has gamers squarely in its sights. Priced at $80, this is a case that we very much expect to be a dominant force for a few reasons.

Corsair Carbide 400Q Review: Affordable, Minimalist Mid Tower

With its vast experience of case building, Corsair must have foreseen that the Carbide 600C we reviewed last month wouldn't appeal to everyone with its inverted ATX layout, so its counteroffer seems premeditated. The new Carbide 400 series takes a more traditional approach while keeping the clean lines and curved solid-steel exterior of the 600 series for a great minimalist look.

Thermaltake Core P5 Wall-Mountable Case Review: Stands out in a crowded market

If you love the idea of a wall-mountable PC but don't want to spend more on your case than any other part, perhaps Thermaltake's latest creation is for you. Priced at just $150, the Thermaltake Core P5 is comparable to the Lian Li PC-O7S in terms of size, but the Core P5 is twice as thick, and is intended to be used with custom liquid-cooling systems.

Silverstone Raven X Case Review: Flagship level cooling, priced for the masses

Silverstone first caught our attention with beautiful HTPC cases such as the LC13B-E, but it really landed on our radar with the $180, 90-degree stacked design Raven 2 Evolution (RV02-E). Delivering a new iteration, the Raven X RVX01 is only $80 but the company promises it will offer flagship level cooling performance, ample drive space and full size component compatibility.

Silverstone Raven RVZ02 Review: The best Mini-ITX case for gaming rigs

With some 16 months having passed since our first look at the RVZ01, Silverstone has returned with another compact gaming chassis. The Raven RVZ02 is 15% smaller than the original while promising to support graphics cards up to 13" long. Silverstone believes that the RVZ02 is one of the easiest compact Mini-ITX cases to build a gaming system in and we'll be putting together multiple hardware configurations to test this claim.
