A computer case is one of the most important components of a overclocker's build. We have a variety of case reviews including computer case reviews, htpc case reviews, and even tech station reviews. We look for quality in craftsmanship, features, and cooling as big factors in our reviews.
Today we will be taking a look at the new NZXT Noctis 450 mid-tower chassis. When paired together with the NZXT X61 closed loop CPU cooler, both products make a good combination for any gamer and give you that extra edge on the playing field . It doesn’t matter if you're using an X99 motherboard with 16 GBs of DDR4 memory and 5930K chip or a Z97 motherboard with a 16GB DDR3 memory kit and an overclocked 4790K, the Noctis 450 can handle such setups with ease.
Over the years I have reviewed my fare share of PC chassis, and my bias has always leaned towards the huge super towers that have a ton of spare room for things like crazy GPU setups, custom liquid cooling, and a ton of fans and lights. This week I am reviewing the Xigmatek Nebula C, a mini-ITX chassis that did all but convert me to a small form-factor PC fanboy. This case is the epitome of what I consider to be the perfect balance of form and function, but dont just take my word for it. Check out the full review and find out just why I like this little case so much!

Small Form Factor (SFF) builds have been taking the world by storm in the last few years, and with every passing month it seems to become easier to build a compact gaming system that rivals their full sized desktop siblings. When you’re dealing with such a compact space, you have to be picky with what hardware you go with – otherwise you might end up with parts that will not fit well together. With the CSAZ-103 by AZZA they obviously put a lot of work into the case to ensure compatibility with most hardware available today.
