Silverstonetek GD07 HTPC enclosure 
In last spring Silverstone published two HTPC cases to Grandia series. The cases' model names are GD07 and GD08 and their most important features are extensibility, cooling perfonrmance and silence. This time we are about to take a closer look at the GD07 model.

Lian Li PC-7HX System Enclosure 
Lian Li is considered as a company that produces high-end and very well finished cases. Let's see if PC-7H can face the presumptions.

Silverstonetek TJ04-E System Enclosure 
SilverStone has recently published an improved version of its TJ04 case, which was introduced in 2004. The new model is called Temjin TJ04-E, which has some nice new improvements. Knowing SilverStone's products' quality, the expectations are high for this newcomer.

Corsair Carbide Series 300R 
System enclosures that are aimed towards the budget market are usually quite boring, have poor build quality and generally they just look bad. 300R is Corsair's latest offering to this market and now we'll see if it can change any of the preconceptions that shoppers may have.
Corsair Carbide Series 300R
NZXT Phantom 410 
The original Phantom was a very eye-catching case with truly unique looks and also some funky color options and the Phantom 410 is supposed to be a very close relative to the original case. Now lets find what the fuzz is all about!
NZXT Phantom 410
Silverstone PS07 
Some might say that the PS07 is aimed more towards a budget buyer. There is nothing wrong in that and if the product is high in quality and looks good, I'm all for it. So, is the Silverstonetek's PS07 the case for you? Read and find out!
Silverstone PS07
NZXT Switch 810 
NZXT cases divide opinions. There are people that find the style of the manufacturer appealing but often quite strong "design language" put some people off. Switch 810 has the potential to appeal to all kinds of users. Let us see what it offers!
NZXT Switch 810
Antec Solo II 
The Solo sits in the same Sonata-series of cases as the Sonata III and Sonata Elite we've reviewed before, and the whole range is designed to be as quiet as possible. Let us see what the new Solo II brings to the table.
Antec Solo II
CM Storm Enforcer 
Cooler Master published a case to CM Storm -series; CM Storm Enforcer. Its price is under 100 euros so it sits at the inexpensive end of CM Storm -series range.
CM Storm Enforcer
Corsair Carbide 400R 
Bringing the price tag closer to the $100 mark sure makes the case more tempting to the average user, but the big question is whether or not Corsair has managed to still maintain their high standards and all the features that made the earlier cases so great?
Corsair Carbide 400R
Silvestone TJ08-E 
The -E is a new version of an older TJ08-case, and going by Silverstone's track record of making some of our favorite cases, the expectations are high for this Evolution-version as well!
Silvestone TJ08-E
Thermaltake Level 10 GT 
This is the "gamer version" of the original Level 10 that took the world by the storm. Unique design got them several awards on the previous model but can this new GT bring them awards on other areas as well?
Thermaltake Level 10 GT
Fractal Design Define Mini 
Fractal Design Define Mini is Fractal Design's case for microATX-motherboards. The design follows the lines set by earlier models such as R2 and R3. Let us see if the new case fits your needs!
Fractal Design Define Mini
Silverstone PS05 
Looking back at the cases we've reviewed earlier the PS05 competes with the likes of the CM Elite 430 Black and of course the Antec Three Hunded, so lets see how it manages against those two.
Silverstone PS05
Silverstone Raven 3 
On the outside one can see the legacy of the previous versions but what have Silverstone changed on the inside?!
Silverstone Raven 3
Thermaltake Armor A60 
Overall then the Armor A60 is a pretty similar case with the A90 we saw earlier. Anyway all the changes between these two models are for the better and especially the sideways hot swap bay seems like a nice touch.
Thermaltake Armor A60
Corsair Obsidian 650D 
The only downside of the Corsair's Obsidian 800D was the huge size which meant that getting such an enormous case really only made sense to people with water cooling loops. Now corsair has addressed this problem and launched a smaller Obsidian case - the 650D. Lets find out if they've managed to keep all the things that made the 800D such an excellent case!
Corsair Obsidian 650D
NZXT H2 Classic 
NZXT is probably best known for their eye catching gamer cases, but the brand does already have more subtly styled cases for the rest of us. The case they sent us now is a H2 Classic and it definitely fits to the latter category.
NZXT H2 Classic
Fractal Design Define XL 
Fractal Design introduces their new tower case that is bigger than the previous R2/R3 models. Does it offer the features that you need for your next system enclosure?!
Fractal Design Define XL
Antec LanBoy Air 
Every now and then an enclosure manufacturer tries something entirely new, and this time the manufacturer is Antec with their new LanBoy Air case. The Air is all about modularity and customization and is unlike anything we've tested before.
Antec LanBoy Air
Cooler Master Elite 430 Black 
So far my personal favorite on the budget category has remained the Antec Three hundred. Now Cooler Master has designed a competitor to the 300 - The Elite 430 Black.
Cooler Master Elite 430 Black
Dimastech EasyHard V2.5 Tech Bench 
When it comes to the real test benches, Dimastech is the best known brand. This time we take a closer look at their EasyHard V2.5 Test Bench.
Dimastech EasyHard V2.5 Tech Bench
Thermaltake Armor A90 
As the name kinda suggests, it's a gaming case with lots of eye-catching details and should also provide enough airflow to keep things cool while gaming.
Thermaltake Armor A90
Silverstone Fortress FT02 
By the look of things, it's very much the same chassis as the Raven 2 reviewed earlier, but aimed at a bit different target audience.
Silverstone Fortress FT02
Silverstone Raven 2 
Early this year Silverstone came up with Raven chassis that got some rather unique features, including positive pressure cooling and motherboard in weird 90-degree angle. After the initial launch the guys at Silverstone haven't been resting on their laurels, but been busy working with the new version
, and now the Raven 2 is out and also arrived to our tests.
Silverstone Raven 2
Fractal Design - Define R2 
A while ago I saw a case called Define R2 from a Swedish manufacturer, Fractal Design. I thought the specs were great and the price was very reasonable, if it was able to deliver what it promised. Now we will find out!
Fractal Design - Define R2
Corsair Obsidian 800D 
It has been quite a while since the Obsidian 800D first appeared in press shots, but now the chassis finally made its way to our test lab. Now let's see if Corsair manages to keep up their reputation in great entries, or if the 800D will fall into the ever-growing markets of average cases.
Corsair Obsidian 800D
Thermaltake Element Q 
This time we have a (almost) fanless case from Thermaltake's Element Q VL5000 series under some testing. It's a compact case designed mainly for mini-ITX boards with small heatsinks (Atom boards for example).
Thermaltake Element Q
Silverstone GD04 
Just a few weeks back we reviewed the Silverstone GD03 HTPC case and despite some flaws, we liked it. Since then the Silverstone has already come up with a new model - GD04. It obviously sits in the same product range and indeed is similar in many ways, but we still felt it was differed enough for a dedicated review.
Silverstone GD04
NZXT PANZERBOX 
Most of NZXT's cases tend to be rather eye-catching, and previously we've had the Rogue and the Tempest from their product range for closer inspection. The previous two cases differed greatly from each other, so lets see what course their latest offering takes - Introducing the Panzerbox.
NZXT PANZERBOX
Xigmatek Midgard 
Xigmatek is entering the case market with their first case - The Midgard. Midgard follows the current trend of highly ventilated gaming cases. Cost effective solution that will save some cash for other components?
Xigmatek Midgard
SilverStone Sugo SG05 
Unlike most small SFF-cases which have been designed with mini-ITX motherboards in mind, the SG05 has a relatively large powersupply, 300 W, and it even supports dual-slot graphic cards. This makes it a perfect candidate for someone that wants to build a small setup, which will run most games at decent settings. Another interesting things about this case is that it supports the mini-DTX sized motherboards, from AMDs elusive DTX-formfactor.
SilverStone Sugo SG05
SilverStone Grandia Series GD03 
SilverStone make a huge variety of HTPC-cases, ranging from the fairly simple cases all the way up to the all-aluminum models, complete with front-panel TFTs. From that variety of shapes and sizes, the newcomer of the Grandia Series, the GD03 made its way to our tests.
SilverStone Grandia Series GD03
SilverStone Fortress FT01 
Based on the design of the Temjin, SilverStone has also released a smaller case - the Fortress FT01. It uses the same unibody aluminum construction as well as the overall looks, but lets see if it can keep up SilverStone's reputation in top quality aluminum cases manufacturer.
SilverStone Fortress FT01
Antec Fusion Remote Max 
Like the Sonata Elite, also the Fusion Remote Max is an updated version of a case we've already reviewed on Metku.net once before. While the Sonata Elite still followed the footprints of its predecessors, the Fusion Max goes a bit further and the internal layout is redone to take full-size ATX motherboards.
Antec Fusion Remote Max
Antec Sonata Elite 
Sonata has gone through some cosmetical changes before. Let us see if the update this time is just skin-deep or has Antec made some larger changes to their very popular case.
Antec Sonata Elite
Cooler Master - Storm Sniper 
Cooler Master was one of the first manufacturers to really put effort in designing a case dedicated for gamers. Now we present you the latest model - Cooler Master Storm Sniper!
Cooler Master - Storm Sniper
Antec Skeleton 
Skeleton really is something new in Antec's catalog. They call it an Open Air Case and it is aimed at the enthusiast market. The case has an unique design, which is designed to give lots of airflow onto the motherboard area in addition to making changing components a walk in the park. Atleast on paper the Skeleton looks great, but how does it perform in real-life?
Antec Skeleton
Lian-Li Tyr PC-X2000 
The case we received from Lian-Li this time is one of the newer models - Tyr PC-X2000 and it mainly aims at not only to high end HTPC use, but also to "gaming" markets.
Lian-Li Tyr PC-X2000
Antec Gamer Cases - 300 vs. 1200 
Earlier we reviewed the P180 Mini from the P1-family and now two cases from the range of Gaming Cases have arrived to our review. The cases this time are the 300 and the 1200, both of which follow the theme set by the earlier 900 model.
Antec Gamer Cases - 300 vs. 1200
Silverstonetek SUGO SG03 & Nitrogon NT06-Lite 
Lately we've seen couple of cases that make use of microATX sized motherboards and normal sized power supplies. Trend seems to go on. This time we received a delivery from Silverstone and the case in question is their SUGO SG03 model. The case is very small but it can still take in larger and more powerful power supplies and graphic cards.

NZXT Tempest 
NZXT, the US-based manufacturer has come up with a new case model - Tempest - which they advertise to be the new airflow king.
NZXT Tempest
Antec Mini P180 Updated: 31.03.2008
The original P180 case was launched already three years ago and has since been replaced by a new and improved P182 model. The P1-series also includes the P190, which is a larger case including same design features as the P180, but it also offers room for EATX-motherboards and dual power supplies. Now the performance 1 series also includes a long awaited mATX-case - say hello to the P180 Mini!
Antec Mini P180
NZXT Rogue 
During its existence, the shape and the size of the PC-case have gone through many evolutions. One of the newer designs is a cube. Case design has much to do with personal preference, so it's good to see variety on the market as many find the cube shape to be very practical.
NZXT Rogue
GMC AVC-S7 - The Slim HTPC case 
We've already tested quite a few HTPC-cases, but the one we have this time still manages to stand from the crowd. It's a new product in the GMC's Noblesse-series. The difference between this case and all the earlier ones we've reviewed is that this is as slim as possible. All the HTPC-cases so far have had room for full-size PCI-cards, but that's not the case this time. The slim design has also forced the manufacturer to do some other changes to the normal layout.
GMC AVC-S7 - The Slim HTPC case
Antec Fusion Black 430 
This time we have another updated case from Antec in our hands. The Fusion cases are part of Antec's Veris family and they are designed for HTPC use. They have the looks but are they up to the task?
Antec Fusion Black 430
Nexus Caterpillar 
Now Nexus has come up with a new case in their range of quiet cases, the Caterpillar. It comes equipped with two quiet fans and the panels are covered in sound-absorbing material. How well have they accomplished with the compromise between being quiet and having a good ventilation this time?
Nexus Caterpillar
Antec Sonata III 
During the last couple of years quiet computing has really made its big entrance. Markets are filled with numerous products from rubber grommets to silent fans, but still the case remains the single most important component when trying to build as silent setup as possible.
Antec Sonata III
GMC R-2 Toast 
The shape of the "standard" mid-tower has remained the same for years, but this time we're about to see something new.

I-CASE 
Boosting the appearance of computer systems is nothing new but improving the visual appearance of game consoles is just entering the main stream. As game consoles are visible part of living room decoration in many homes, getting it to match the rest of the environment is a challenge.

AVC-K1 Middle Tower ATX Case by GMC 
Last year we tested two HTPC-cases made by Zalman. They were both meant to be stacked with other AV-equipment. However Media PCs do not have to be horizontal and 43 cm wide, they can also be shaped like normal midi towers. If you want to describe a media PC, you most likely focus on the special features such as remote controller and VFD-display than the size and shape of the case. According to this, the case we're about to test this time is definitely a Media PC.

Zalman HD135 HTPC-kotelo 
In the Computex 06 Zalman had two new HTPC cases at show; HD135 and a new HD160XT beefed up with a seven inch LCD screen. Now the totally new model, HD135, has arrived to our tests. According to the specifications the HD135 is pretty much like its bigger brother we tested last time, full aluminum case which houses standard ATX hardware.
Zalman HD135 HTPC-kotelo
Zalman HD160 HTPC Case 
PC has lately made its way to the livingrooms. Mainly they are used as DVD-players to provide high resolutions and multi channel sounds. As HD-ready TVs and projectors are becoming more and more popular, so is the need for a HDTV-sources, such as HTPCs.
