We have a birdy close to our ear telling us to expect a new player on the block soon, Raijintek. Raijintek will be unveiling a bunch of products in the high-end cooling, high-end PSU and chassis markets.

Raijintek's devices are designed in Germany, and made in Taiwan. There's not much more to tell than the tease, but be sure we'll be reporting on the products they release in the coming months. Their website will be up in the next 3-4 weeks, but for now they have a Facebook page you can check out.

Noctua announce they're providing free mounting upgrades for Intel's Haswell processors

Newer Noctua heatsinks support Haswell out of the box, but older models are now included with the new NM-i115x, with no cost to the consumer whatsoever. In order to get yourself the NM-i115x, all you have to do is provide proof of purchase (which can be a photo, scan or screenshot of your invoice) of both an eligible Noctua CPU cooler and either an LGA115x motherboard or LGA115x CPU. The mounting kits are compatible with most Noctua coolers released since 2005, and will be available at retail stores for a low service charge.

BitFenix just released two exciting new products to their growing line of custom PC hardware. The company said that "overwhelming response from the community" lead to the development and release of a side panel window accessory for the popular Prodigy mini-ITX chassis, as well as a full line of Mixed color Alchemy Cables.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27873_1_bitfenix_releases_prodigy_side_panel_window_accessory_and_alchemy_mixed_cables.jpg

 

The Prodigy Side Panel Window Accessory is billed as a "hassle free" option to obtain a clear view into the inside of your Prodigy Mini-ITX Chassis. It mounts without any "clips, or tacky mounting hardware" meaning your sleek Prodigy chassis will retain its good looks.

 

The Alchemy Mixed Cables are a fresh twist to the company's existing line of custom sleeved cable extensions. Featuring a red / black or black / blue color scheme the cables are sleeved with BitFenix's ultra-dense NanoSleeve braiding. Both the Alchemy Mixed Cabled and the Prodigy Side Panel Window will be available mid-February.

Three new designs from Silverstone based on the same internal layout and are about to offer braided cabling

CES 2013 - Meeting with Tony in the Silverstone suite I was introduced o tree future chassis designs. The chassis in this image is the RV04, yes this is the new Raven! The front of the chassis pulls air through the side, and forces it through this inverted ATX chassis interior. They have had many users say that the typical ninety degree rotated interior wasn't what they wanted, so Silverstone now offers this internal layout for the new revision.

Right next to the Raven is the new FT04, or Fortress series of cases. This chassis keeps the same exact interior, this time plus sound dampening material. The front uses a rolled aluminum front bezel reminiscent of the TJ11 uni-body design with rounded edges.

Zalman enters the all-in-one cooling game, also offers something new in air cooling

CES 2013 - Since AIOs are so popular these days, Zalman is jumping into the game and is now offering their own trio of LQ series coolers. In the image you can see the thick radiator, LQ320, and they are also offering smaller ones including the LQ315 and LQ310. After having it explained that the LQ320 has more surface area than an H100i, I for one an eager to get to test one, or all of these when I return home from CES.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27809_01_zalman_enters_the_all_in_one_cooling_game_also_offers_something_new_in_air_cooling.jpg

 

If you want an AIO, but ant to step away from the standard offerings, Zalman is also offering this AIO billed as the CI Water Cooler. Essentially using one of their air coolers to send the liquid through its 8mm heat pipes, this unique take on an AIO will appeal to those who are looking to use something that the average Joe may pass on.

Zalman offers a trio of cases at CES 2013 to fit every need!

CES 2013 - Starting off with the new gaming flagship chassis from Zalman, the MS800 Plus should suit most people's needs. This chassis offering things like removable covers on the front covers that can be done from the outside, fan controller, and a great mix of style and feature set.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27808_01_zalman_offers_a_trio_of_cases_at_ces_2013_to_fit_every_need.jpg

 

Moving into Mid-tower chassis design, Zalman offers the Z12 Plus. This resembles the larger MS800, but still has a front finish all of its own. Again you have the option of a windowed side panel, dust filters, and a similar layout, but the fan controls on this smaller chassis have been changed to slider switch.

Lian Li had a train, a lot of anodized aluminum, and a chassis almost large enough to live in!

CES 2013 - Arriving to Lian Li's booth on the floor, there was a few sections of track allowing the PC-CK101 to run back and forth to attract everyone to their booth, or at least make them stop so that the representatives could then show off some of the new trends and creations.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27804_01_lian_li_had_a_train_a_lot_of_anodized_aluminum_and_a_chassis_almost_large_enough_to_live_in.jpg

 

On the tiny side of chassis design, there was this PC-Q27 which is a mini-ITX chassis that is intended to be a show piece as you have this chassis running your HTPC. While the design is atypical to most, the sleek design, slight curve to the chassis, and the large window in such a small chassis makes me think many people may be looking to add this chassis to their living room!

InWin borrows from Ducati to inspire the new D-Frame as well as showing some other goodies

CES 2013 - As I checked the show floor, I met up with InWin to have a look at what they are going to offer this year. After some discussion, and of course a bunch of images, I got into some of the finer details of what was shown and what will soon be on the pages of TweakTown.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27802_01_inwin_borrows_from_ducati_to_inspire_the_new_d_frame_as_well_as_showing_some_other_goodies.jpg

 

First on the table is a white version of the GR One. We have already seen and reviewed this chassis, but as with all manufacturers, white is the obvious revision choice to start with.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27802_02_inwin_borrows_from_ducati_to_inspire_the_new_d_frame_as_well_as_showing_some_other_goodies.jpg

 

Second in the line-up is the H-Frame which I have not seen up close and personal, well at least until now, and I finally got to see what all of the review and forum hype was all about.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27802_03_inwin_borrows_from_ducati_to_inspire_the_new_d_frame_as_well_as_showing_some_other_goodies.jpg

 

As I moved down the counter I finally ran into what is soon to arrive at my house so I can bring it to all of our readers, and that is the super slick Ducati inspired, D-Frame chassis. InWin even went as far as to offer this chassis in Ducati red, as well as being constructed of welded tubular aluminum, and the use of a cast aluminum inner core. To keep tiny hands or pets out of this truly open air concept, the side panels are made from a tinted, tempered glass, and are the first chassis I have ever seen to do this.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27802_04_inwin_borrows_from_ducati_to_inspire_the_new_d_frame_as_well_as_showing_some_other_goodies.jpg

 

They will also be offering this kit in bright orange version to offer a bit of choice to their lucky customers that can actually by them. Not solely based on price, but also availability.

NZXT's Phantom 630 makes an appearance at CES 2013

CES 2013 - On our recent tour of NZXT's suite, we got a chance to take a peek at their latest offerings, including the new Phantom 630. This case continues to flesh out the Phantom line of enclosures and draws from some of the styling of the others in the line, which really makes it fit in the family.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27780_7_nzxt_s_phantom_630_makes_an_appearance_at_ces_2013.jpg

 

The internal drive bays are completely re-configurable, allowing for limitless different choices. You can also remove them all to make room for extra or large radiators because the motherboard tray supports two SSDs behind. The motherboard tray leaves something like 35mm between it and the sidepanel, which accommodates those SSDs and lots of room for wire management.

 

Colors include Matte-Black, Gunmetal, and White, all of which will set you back $179.99.

Antec shows off new fans at CES 2013

CES 2013 - We appear to be the only ones talking about Antec's new TrueQuiet 120 fans, and it's a good thing we are because they are pretty cool. The TrueQuiet 120s are engineered to reduce the noise produced. Antec has managed this by putting the outside frame closer to the blades, as you can see in the picture below.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27778_6_antec_shows_off_new_fans_at_ces_2013.jpg

 

As you can see, they come in a multitude of colors, with some featuring LEDs in the chassis and others with a glowing ring around the outside. Some aren't lit at all and come in a classy white or black color. You can tell the TrueQuiet 120 series apart from the rest by the orange anti-vibration corner pads.
