For $50, the Thermaltake V3 Black Edition offers a lot of bang for the buck. Not only will you get a fully functional case out of the box but there are also expansion options in the form of four 120mm fan positions and high quality features like tool-less mechanisms on two of the drive positions that no few mainstream cases have. Add to that the black coating throughout the case including the interior and the case deserves a close look for your next budget system. - read more

The Cooler Master USP 100 mid-tower case is an interesting study in case design. It seems to have the gamer in mind in some areas with the ability have three 120mm fans, and the tool-less design allowing for easy installation or removal of components. The case comes with a PSU which is rare on cases of this price range. The true enthusiast will want a more powerful PSU than a 550W eXtreme Power PSU as they might want to run two cards in SLI which this PSU does not have the connections or power... - read more

Cooler Master has taken an already excellent case in the CM Storm Sniper and improved upon it in the Black Edition. The case adds support for 2.5” SSD drives, an all black interior to the Sniper case. The design is excellent with military style design and it actually looks like it has crosshairs for a sniper scope. The case is not available on Newegg yet but the earlier version cost $129.99, making it a bit pricey but worth it due to the features and the workmanship Cooler Master brings to the... - read more

SilverStone has taken the Micro-ATX form factor HTPC and given it the options of the bigger cases. It is an interesting case design that allows for long video cards, normal PSUs, three 120mm cooling fans and fits into an entertainment center without overlap. SilverStone’s design is worthy of mention as a Hot Product for those reasons. You also have the option of installing an Atom motherboard with a smaller PSU to cut down on costs but the option to include a full system with HD 5870 video... - read more

This case is available for a price of $760 online, making it not for the faint of heart. The target market is for the SOHO designer trying to have a functional design as part of their overall home office, or the enthusiast gamer wanting excellent cooling, or even the film editor. For these target markets the Level 10 does the job and does it well. The case is secure from theft as once its locked you would have to break the case to get to the parts inside. Aesthetically, the Level 10 case is... - read more

SilverStone has combined the unibody construction of the Temjin cases with the vertically mounted motherboard trays of the Raven case in the Fortress FT02 case. There’s plenty to like about the case including positive air pressure when in operation, tool-less 5.25” drive installation, vertically mounted video cards and expansion cards. The combination is an excellent starting point for any serious gaming system with plenty of expandability and room for the longest video cards on the market... - read more

Cooler Master has taken an already excellent case in the form of the HAF 932 and done some modifications to it to provide an AMD Edition of the case. The red color and the Dragon in the window make the case fit the theme really well. This case has plenty of room for HDDs and ODDs with up to 12 drives installed in the case. The Cooler Master HAF 932 has plenty of fans with two 230mm fans and a 140mm fan installed out of the box but plenty of room for more fans if needed. One concern with the AMD... - read more
