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.

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.

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.

Computex Taipei 2013 - I've been a fan of Lian Li for as long as I can remember, but checking out their latest case today at Computex has me falling in love all over again. They were kind enough to walk us through their latest beast, the PC-D600.

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.

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 - 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. InWin are truly making some unique cases, and I really love the direction of the KingSize H-Frame they had on display.

Phanteks Enthoo Primo chassis is the Real Deal, video hands-on at Computex

Computex Taipei 2013 - Big case lovers have reason to rejoice today. Here at the show, Phanteks is showing their first computer case and it's just as large as their initial CPU cooler.

The case looks very good on the outside, but the internal features are very nice as well.

 

 

Big cases usually draw brig price points but the Phanteks Enthoo Primo isn't the $400 case you expect it to be, it's better and it costs less than $250.

NZXT shows off new Phantom 530 and new prototype water cooling for GeForce GTX TITAN

Computex Taipei 2013 - I spent all day at the Grand Hyatt in Taipei seeing all the companies who are in attendance at the show in that building. Our first stop was at NZXT where they showed a range of new power supplies and also the new Phantom 530 chassis - a replacement of the original Phantom that was also released at Computex some years ago.

 

 

What really impressed me was its new prototype water cooling gear for video cards. These new coolers are compatible with any Asetek-based water coolers such as the NZXT Karken X40. The system was setup cooling two NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN video cards with coolers that feature steel brackets and two 90mm cooling fans on each video card.

 

nzxt_shows_off_new_phantom_530_and_new_prototype_water_cooling_for_geforce_gtx_titan_1

 

They had Crysis 3 running at ultra settings and the GPU temperature was around 40- 50c, which is a big drop in the stock cooling by up to 30 - 40 degrees Celsius. We're looking forward to doing full reviews of the 530 and new cooling gear when it comes to market.

InWin's Tou is an absolutely gorgeous work of art, oh and it's a PC chassis, too

Computex Taipei 2013 - I remember last year's Computex, and the InWin booth, where I got some eyes- and hands-on time with their awesome X-Frame open-air chassis and this year I was privileged to see something truly unique, the Tòu.

The Tòu is a features a full aluminum frame that is covered in, wait for it, 3mm-thick safety glass and then skinned in a Specular film that provides a gorgeous mirror finish. The LED's turn on inside, and the mirror finish fades a little, to really give it a magical look. The video above will give you a real chance to see it in action!
