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.
The M9 is a mid-size tower that is filled with cooling inspirations. There are four different versions of the M9 which means there may well be one to suit you. There are models with and without the side panel window. And if you are not looking to use some high powered power supply each of the forementioned models can be had with 400 watt power supplies. Thermaltake is one company that is known to try and provide products that suit all individuals no matter your budget, taste or needs.
If you look around some of your favorite online retailers you will see a listing for the Apevia X-Telstar case. The X-Telstar sports a large see-thru side panel and circular display that gives you all the details on what is going on inside the case. The light aluminum construction is a big bonus as well. Apevia has never been a big fan of the industry standard beige casing. This is Apevia newest case to market, but will it be as popular with us as the newest Q-Pack we reviewed a few weeks ago? Read alone with us and we will tell you.
Just recently Hiper sent out a press release about this case they were revealing at Computex. The subject of the PR was a new case with a lot of features of the Anubis with some new goodies. With fans located in the front, back and top of the case your video card and other items in need of cooling will get terrific air circulation. All the other features that we will talk about thru out the review are great, but what I really like is the mesh side panel and stealthiness of the media drives.
If you have not heard of Antec before you must be living in a cave or somewhere remote. Antec is one of the major players in the case and power supply market. At one time or another many of us have used one of the cases. The Sonata line started all the good stuff and then came the Performance One series that includes the likes of the P180 which was very popular. Then there was the release of the Nine Hundred which was one the best air circulating cases on the market mostly due to the huge 200 mm fan on top.
