January, 2011 - It’s been an exciting year for the computer
modding scene with hundreds of new products released. So "just in case" you
missed any, we're highlighting a few of our favorite new cases below along with
some great mods to go with them or your own favorite case.
Danger Den Double Wide Acrylic Tower - 21 Black Series
on the list, we’ve got the Double-Wide Tower 21 Black Series case by Danger Den!
Featuring support for standard OR extended ATX motherboards, rounded edges to
prevent any modding-related injuries, and a myriad of different radiator
combinations up to two 3x120mm radiators plus a single 4x120mm, this beautiful
acrylic masterpiece has ample cooling for whatever you wanna throw in it! With
plenty of room for a dual-loop, you can toss a dual 5.25” bay split reservoir by
XSPC in the open drive bays and show it all off with a couple of NZXT’s premium
sleeved LED kits! Don’t forget the Feser One Corrosion Blocker additive to keep
your loop in tip-top shape!
X-Plorer2 Case - Black
up, we’ve got the new X-Plorer2 case by Apevia! As the successor to the original
X-Plorer, this case has a 200mm LED fan attached to the extremely cool hexagonal
side window, as well as two more 120mm fans and pre-drilled water cooling tube
grommets in the back. Apevia was even nice enough to stick a temperature readout
on the top of the sleek, futuristic-looking front bezel! Paired with the
BlackWidow gaming keyboard by Razer and the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 mouse by Saitek,
this case becomes the stuff of gaming legends! Add in a soundproofing kit from
AcoustiPack for quiet operation, and let your skills make all the noise!
Antec LanBoy Air Yellow Case
we have the Antec LanBoy Air case. Sporting a totally modular and customizable
design, this perforated case is the pinnacle of cooling prowess! With support
for up to FIFTEEN 120mm case fans, who needs water cooling? You may be thinking
“I do, that’s who!” which is fine, because the LanBoy Air has pre-drilled tubing
grommets and a top radiator fitting as well! The unparalleled AirMount HDD
mounting system literally suspends your hard drives in mid-air, for maximum
cooling and minimum vibration and noise. Since you've already got a great glow
from your LED case fans, you definitely need to get a power supply that matches!
The new Lazer series from Kingwin gives you plenty of juice along with stunning
style! There's also plenty of room for some T.B. Apollish 120mm LED fans by
Enermax, and AeroCool’s Strike-X touchscreen fan controller is the perfect thing
to bring it all together!
