Rosewill's new Neutron case is a cousin to BitFenix's awesome Prodigy case

Computex Taipei 2013 - I think all of us here at TweakTown are huge fans of the Prodigy, as we've used their case for many system builds and guides. Rosewill though, aren't as well known, but their Neutron case could change all of that.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30886_01_rosewill_s_new_neutron_case_is_cousin_to_bitfenix_s_awesome_prodigy_case.jpg

 

The Neutron is a beautiful case with some unique features, such as the ability to install a huge PSU - something the Prodigy isn't capable of. There's a swivel HDD installation method, as you can see in the pictures below. There's lots of cooling options and watercooling is no problem for the Neutron, with the radiator capable of being installed at the top, or the front. Another unique feature is the ability to shift the USB and power buttons around, where Rosewill said it's as easy as undoing a few screws and shifting it around.

It's nice to see them thinking outside of the box, once more.

Rosewill had a beautiful custom painted Throne case at Computex, we catch it on video

Computex Taipei 2013 - I went and took a look at the Rosewill booth, and as usual, I walked away impressed. First off, we had a look at their custom painted Throne case, which is better to just show on video, and pictures, both of which we have for you below.

Ok, now how good is that? Impressed? I was. It felt amazing to touch, looked even better to the eye, and is just beautiful. I don't know how practical it is, but Rosewill were attracting plenty of people to their booth with this beautiful specimen. Thanks Rosewill, for thinking outside of the square with this chassis.

Hands-on video with the awesome Steiger Dynamics LEET Core chassis

Computex Taipei 2013 - Earlier on today we stopped by the WD booth here at Computex where we saw some amazing new slim hard drives, but we also spotted the Steiger Dynamics LEET Core chassis. This is the case that is the case category winner of TweakTown's Best of Computex 2013 awards.

 

 

Hit play on the embedded video above to get a close-up look at its awesomeness. Basically I'll mention it's made out of a full block of aluminum and machined with perfectly even sides and edges.

The workmanship is just amazing and it also looks really impressive as well, hence the reason for taking away our case award at the show this year. Start saving though, this is not a cheap case.

Computex Taipei 2013 - Out at the Nangang hall today at Computex Taipei 2013 we stopped by the OCZ booth where they had, as expected, a bunch of flash storage products, but most have had public viewing before this event.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30847_1_ocz_shows_off_new_fatal1ty_750_watt_bronze_rated_psu_haswell_ready_and_at_a_good_price.jpg

 

What was new at the event for OCZ was its new Fatal1ty 750-watt power supply. It is rated for continuous 750-watt output at 45c and comes with 80 PLUS Bronze certification. It is also 100% fully modular and includes a 125mm double ball bearing fan. No fear, it will also work ion your shiny new Intel Haswell CPU based system and OCZ throw in a very solid five year warranty.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30847_2_ocz_shows_off_new_fatal1ty_750_watt_bronze_rated_psu_haswell_ready_and_at_a_good_price.jpg

 

I say very solid warranty as OCZ has set very competitive pricing on this unit. The pictures we took of the unit at the OCZ booth are off an unfinished product, OCZ do intend to make a few minor adjustments before its release in the July - August timeframe.

Thermaltake unveil an awesome digital PSU that lets you monitor and control things in real-time

Computex Taipei 2013 - Thermaltake continue to impress the world, and myself especially, with their new digital power supply unit (PSU). The new Toughpower DPS range of power supplies are all-digital, and allow users to do real-time performance monitoring and control.

TweakTown image news/3/0/30839_01_thermaltake_unveil_an_awesome_digital_psu_that_lets_you_monitor_and_control_things_in_real_time.jpg

 

You can save records and view ultra-detailed data at anytime, and something I truly love is that it is really social - you can share records with friends through the usual social networks like Facebook and Twitter, or even go e-mail if you want. The Toughpower DPS 850W we took a look at has an ultra-quiet 14cm fan with smart fan control, and the new Toughpower DPS line of PSU's are fully modular with low profile and flat cables, another nod to Thermaltake's eye in detail.

SilverStone's DS380 is a mini-ITX storage case, features 8 HDD bays

Computex Taipei 2013 - SilverStone had an interesting NAS-like case at Computex Taipei 2013, the SilverStone DS380. The DS380 is a mini-ITX chassis that can pack in a huge 8 x HDD's for some serious, serious storage.

TweakTown image news/3/0/30804_02_silverstone_s_ds380_is_a_mini_itx_storage_case_features_8_hdd_bays.jpg

 

Because it's a mini-ITX chassis, you can install your own motherboard instead of buying a ready-made NAS. There's three 120mm fans to cool all of those HDD's and a nifty key to unlock the front door to the case, where your hard drives reside.

Computex Taipei 2013 - I've got to admit, I'm really impressed with what InWin are doing lately. The trend continues once more, with the H-Frame mini, another open-air chassis from InWin.

Computex Taipei 2013 - We stopped off at the InWin booth at Computex Taipei 2013 today, first off checking out their incredibly beautiful Tou case, but their KingSize H-Frame also caught my eye.
