    Streacom makes fan-less small form factor PC cases. Now they release the F12C, a HTPC case with 4mm thick sandblasted aluminum that should fit nicely in a home theater with Marantz Pre/amp & Amps. (Still waiting for that Free-Sync enabled 4K OLED LG!) It has an open internal layout that can fit...

    i3 Is The New i5! (HD Only)

    To this day, I see debates of whether to go for the i5 or i7 in gaming rigs, and most conclude that the i5 is a better choice. The article linked suggests that with the power of Haswell, the i3 paired with the GTX 960 is as good as the i5 when gaming in 1080P resolutions. This is a...

    R9 290 Power color pcs+ vs. sapphire tri-x

    So both cards are triple slot, triple fan designs and sell for the same price below $400. I suppose it boils down to memory brand, noise, clocks and overclocks, and most importantly personal experience. Any ideas? I have the 4 pci-e 3.0 slot, plx equipped gigabyte ga-z97x-gaming motherboard. Do...

    What Is The Height Restriction for a graphics Card in a RVZ01/ML07?

    I'm building a living room PC with the Silverstone Milo ML07 and an R9 290. My first choice is the Sapphire Vapor X but the height of this card is 1.85" (4.7 CM), which is triple slot, and the height restriction of a card in the ML07 or RVZ01 isn't mentioned anywhere. Will it fit with 25mm...

    Will The Real Fortress Please Stand Up?

    Silverstone it is not. Meet the Jonsbo UMX2, the true successor of the FT02. All aluminum, two 120mm rotated intake fans at the bottom and a 140mm exhaust on top. Unfortunately the motherboard isn't rotated so the video card(s) seam likely to block airflow. I'm just guessing at how good it can...
