Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935: Lego chassis

Large chassis have become a rarity in our offices. The reasons for that are few, but the main “culprit” is the advent of mobile devices in computer market. The number of hardware enthusiasts who handpick components and try to squeeze the last atom of power from CPU and graphics is decreasing. That’s precisely the reason why we were very interested in testing this new chassis, sent to us by Cooler Master. The first thing you’ll notice is the enormous size of the packaging box. When you unpack its contents, you’ll realize why the box is that big – there are two separate chassis inside.

Fractal Design ARC Midi R2: Elegant and spacious

In the era of mobile device expansion and the general portability of everything, it’s a bit odd to invest in development of desktop chassis, not to mention investing in a redesign of a solid model, such as ARC MIDI. On the other hand, there will always be tasks that will be performed better on a desktop computer. Unlike the vast majority of chassis that we’ve got from China, models made by the company Fractal pride themselves with elegant design and high functionality. That’s thanks to their design department in Sweden, and that’s the reason the chassis made by this company look really different (check out Design Core 3000 USB3 model).

Super flower SF-2000R-BK

To most people, the name Super Flower will mean absolutely nothing. It’s not a flower shop, but a hardware manufacturer that has a firm footing on the market. Still, you probably haven’t heard about it. And how would you, when their presence is mostly on Asian market with products under their names. In case you didn’t understand the last sentence, allow us to elaborate. Super Flower offers their own chassis, power units and a few more items, but far more importantly is that they make the electronics for power units that are produced by more famous brands. Super Flower electronics had PC Power & Cooling power unit that was fantastic, and came with a warranty of seven years.

Fractal Design Core 3000: Small, available and well-ventilated

Fractal Design never bothered to make the design of their products stand out when compared to the competition and in that way attract the customers who appreciate the visual segment, but they rather emphasize top quality and classic design that will attract the broadest audience. This business strategy, or should we say, philosophy, definitely works and for everybody who wants a quality and functional unit for their valuable computer components, and with a plethora of additional options when it comes to cooling and connectivity, Fractal Design should definitely be on top of the list. In its offer, Fractal has a wide variety of mid-tower models, among which stands out Core series, which provides a relatively small, high-quality and well-ventilated PC chassis, which at the same time will not cost much and turn away potential customers.

Cooler Master Scout 2: Scout from party 2

The title of this review definitely sounds like a sequel to a cheap Hollywood comedy, but Cooler Master was serious in their intention to improve their Scout model, so you’re seeing CM Storm Scout 2 (hereafter “Scout 2”). For all those who didn’t have a chance to see Scout concept, it’s a chassis that’s mostly intended for users who want to take their computer “for a walk” to LAN parties. Therefore, Scout 2 chassis has the same purpose as the older scout, which is to serve as a portable Mid-Tower and to have the gamer look and performances, so let’s begin…

Cooler Master Storm Stryker: Star Wars Stryker!

Cooler Master doesn’t stop surprising us with new or upgraded products, mostly intended for gamers and for all those who want their hardware to perform at top capability. As a company that’s used as a synonym for gaming and as a company that, directly or indirectly, supports this industry and is a significant part of it, not only with excellent products, we’ve grown accustomed to it setting standards and being an example for other companies. That’s precisely the case with the Storm series that’s become a synonym for quality and performance, and this time the heir of CM Storm Trooper is Stryker, with which it shares many similarities.

Fractal Design Define R4: Silencio, is that you?

Cooler Master was arguably the first company to launch a chassis specifically designed to eliminate noise created by the hardware inside it. This feature was very refreshing at the time, and the fact that other manufacturers got interested in the niche says enough about the potential of the product. One such “follower” is Fractal Design and their latest chassis called Define R4, which packs not only minimalistic design and quality workmanship, but also noise insulation materials.

Review: Cooler Master HAF XB - Squarely HAF

Just when you think that there’s nothing new and innovative that can be presented to the PC chassis market and that everything’s already been said and done, Cooler Master manages to surprise us with a good new idea and interesting concept. The product we’re reviewing today is definitely not a revolutionary or never-before-seen product, but it’s certainly worthy of attention for its design and innovativeness. We believe that most of you are already fed up with reading the same reviews all over again, with larger or smaller vertically-oriented boxes that only distinguish themselves by the number of extension slots and colour. Of course, there are pearls in this group, but these are rare and usually reserved for the high class, where price tags are usually as breathtaking as the quality of the product itself.

Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced

 Whenever someone mentions a gaming configuration, what comes to mind is a big-tower chassis, such as one of Cooler Master's HAF models, which has a lot of room and numerous fans for the cooling of all those blazing overclocking components. However, oversized chassis don’t have to be a prerequisite for gaming, especially with the general trend of miniaturisation in the IT industry, which has spilt over to motherboards too, with a large number of micro-ATX and mini-ATX models sporting the latest versions of Intel and AMD chipsets. Not only are these motherboards replete with the latest technologies, but also more than capable of making a good CPU and strong graphics card give excellent performance in the latest games.

Cooler Master HAF XM

Cooler Master_HAF_XM_Logo

 Cooler Master has been using a tried-and-true formula for extending their more-than-successful HAF (High Air Flow) line of advanced PC enclosures. And while this concept hardly packs any “wow” effect anymore, in all honesty, there’s no reason to step down from it just yet, which brings us to the latest member of the family, namely HAF XM. The new HAF is practically a derivative of the larger HAF X model, as indicated by its name, while the M stands for “medium”, i.e. a mid-tower enclosure. However, regardless of the actual dimensions, everything that you’re used to with the older brother is still there, making this model perfect for all those who wish full-tower specs in a more compact packaging.
