ronin_featured

We recently tested two smaller cases from Bitfenix, the mini-ITX-case Phenom and the m-ATX/mini-ITX Prodigy M-case, and found them very good. Today though we are looking at a more normal case, the Bitfenix Ronin which is a regular midi-tower with space for up to ATX-motherboards. The expectations we have for a good mid-tower are pretty high in 2014. We want a case that can handle the most high-end components regardless of length or height, we want good cooling, lots of room to hide the cables as well as space for lots of drives. both SSD’s and regular 3.5″-drives. Can the Bitfenix Ronin live up to those expectations? Read on to find out. FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS While the Phenom and the Prodigy M were small “chubby” cases the Ronin is a more “normal” looking case.

Lian Li unveils the Lian Li DK01, a marriage between a desk and a chassi

dk01_1

Lian Li is a company that isn’t afraid to test new things when it comes to computer cases.  Some of you might remember the “Spider”-chassi or the “Train”-chassi. The DK01 prototype that was unveiled earlier this week is basically a desk with an acrylic table top and a drawer for the components.  The table measures 800 mm x 795 mm x 600 mm (WxHxD) and has room for a lot of nice toys. It can handle huge HPTX motherboards and thus can handled basically any other motherboard size you can think of. There is room for up to 14 3.5″ drives (yes, fourteen) and these sit in detachable bays. Removing some of the bays allows us to put in larger motherboards and longer add-on cards. As for PSU’s you can put in PUS’s up to 280mm length. Since the computer sits in a drawer there are som limitations to how high the CPU-cooler ... Read More »

Bitfenix_Prodigy_04

Though it took a long time to gain any momentum, the Mini ITX form factor seems to be gaining popularity. This is in part due to the integration of various components such as memory controller, Northbridge, and GPU onto the CPU die.
