Fractal Design has expanded its chassis lineup with the new Define S, which is a slight detour from previous products in Fractal's chassis product range. We have a chassis that is built for watercooling builds, making it easier for enthusiasts and power users to liquid cool their PCs in the Define S.
The Swedish company has placed its ATX motherboard and PSU sections in the same place, as are the fans and radiators. Where the HDDs and optical drives are normally found, has been replaced with more room. This is where your cylindrical reservoir will be placed, with the Define S featuring brackets that allow for the mounting of your reservoir.
Behind this cylindrical reservoir, Fractal Design has provided three 3.5-inch HDDs. Behind the motherboard tray, we have room for an additional two 2.5-inch SSDs. The Define S is an optical bay-less chassis, since we're moving into the digital age, this shouldn't be too surprising. When it comes to VGA cards, the Define S is capable of taking a video card that is up to 450mm long.
Fractal has placed the Define S pricing at $79.99, with the side window version of the chassis available for $89.
Looking for a stylish addition to your new PC project? Check out these amazing Thermaltake Riing fans in white, red, green and blue.
Released in 120mm and 140mm sizes and featuring hydraulic bearings, these LED-laden fans will suit perfectly with some LUMI color strips for your next PC build.
This beautiful setup is Bitspower's fully watercooled reply to ASUS' Maximus VIII Impact as shared by Kurpiewski Concept's Facebook page.
If just component watercooling isn't enough for your extreme build, here's a perfect way to go 'over the top' but in a simplistic and stylish manner.
As seen on the product itself, the Bistpower code for this great inclusion is the AIZ97M7IITX and you can already find versions of this nickel plated cover for sale around on various websites - stock is another issue however.
The DIGIFANLESS 550w is ENERMAX's latest foray into the case, cooler and power supply world of technology. Boasting a completely passive cooling system and a 93% peak efficiency (80 PLUS Platinum), this unit gives users the ability to read and control values through a digital interface output.
Coupled with their Zero Delay Power Monitor System (ZDPMS) for the monitoring and control features, the UI will assist you in a wide range of analytical studies including "system power consumption, efficiency, temperature, output voltage and ampere," as explained in their latest press release.
Complete with a fully modular design this 550w fanless power supply is set for release in March 2015.
An often-overlooked addition to any enthusiasts' build - high quality fans can help increase your airflow and cooling alongside removing any later issues to do with cheap OEM models falling apart, breaking or stopping.
Fractal Design has recently issued a press statement, announcing its release of the new Silent Series R3 and Dynamic Series case fans - both featuring high quality components and sizes up to 140mm.
The Silent Series R3 contains rifle bearings, providing you with an improved life expectancy and a quieter experience. These models will be released in sizes ranging from 40mm to 140mm and are fitted with black ribbon cables, helping with cable management.
We previously teased an EK Waterblocks release, toting it as one of the most simplistic and beautiful blocks we've ever seen - low and behold, here's something better.
Bitspower have come into the market with this 'VG-NGTX970ADIIS', a water block designed for ASUS' GTX 970 Strix. Shared by Kurpiewski Concept, this block will seemingly suit any kind of design or build - once again going for the simplistic route overall, as is most common in mods in this day and age.
We will let the images speak for themselves, take a look below.
Described by some as "the company that started it all," Antec has just announced that their P380 chassis is now officially launched - set as an update and refresh of their P180 case.
Featuring dual-layer noise-dampening side panels, Antec claim that this chassis will ensure you can create "a system that is almost inaudible even when the fans are spinning at a high speed."
Compatible with standard ATX motherboards, this new addition to the Antec line includes nine expansion slots and supports video cards up to 18.3" long.
If you're in the market for a new case, HEX GEAR has just announced a mere six hours ago that their new R40 case will have both mATX and reverse mATX support.
This will allow consumers to switch between the two modes without any modding taking place, further adding to case versatility, features and build options. On top of this, their case look awesome - giving me somewhat of a 'modded Fractal' type feel, by taking the nice simplistic and elegant Fractal design, then spicing it up with some accents.
You may not have heard of this company before, so you can read more about HEX GEAR on their official website if you wish.
CES 2015 - IN WIN is a company that has been impressing us more and more, but it hit a peak when we saw their S-Frame chassis at Computex 2014 back in June.
The IN WIN S-Frame is made fro ma single 4mm thick sheet of aluminum that is bent very specifically, and very beautifully into its final form. IN WIN were showing the chassis off at Computex, as well as the new S-Box.
CES 2015 - One of the more interesting CPU coolers shown off at this year's CES was from be quiet!, the German powerhouse that is always striving for better, cooler, and always impressive CPU coolers. This year was no different at all, with two new CPU coolers that are sure to impress.
First up, we have the Dark Rock Topflow. The Dark Rock Topflow has be quiet! and its engineers striving for some impressive stuff, concentrating on memory clearance for setups that might have high-end memory that normally gets in the way of the massive heat sink on these types of CPU coolers. The memory clearance is a decent 51mm with a lower fan installed, but without the lower fan installed it is up to 70mm.
With the fan installed, the Dark Rock Topflow has a total height of just 130mm, but without the additional fan it is just 110mm high. The CPU cooler can handle a CPU pushing out a total TDP of 220W, with an utter maximum of 250W. When it comes to sound, we have 25dB which is nice and quiet. You get two of the be quiet! SilentWings PWM 135mm.
