Antec features new cases at CES 2013, models include the P280 in white and the GX700

CES 2013 - First up, Antec showed off its GX700, a budget-priced case for gamers. It has military stylings and a price tag that won't break the bank. It's not quite out yet, but should be soon. Features are what you would expect from a case like this: 240mm radiator mount on the top, USB3.0, and room for a GPU 11.5-inches long.

Antec has also updated the P280 to be in white, and it looks quite good. The case is the same P280 that you have come to know and love, just with a "touch of class with a matte-white interior and exterior."

Now, those colors aren't just for looks. According to Enermax, the colors are the "thermal conductive coating," which is supposed to increase the cooling performance of the heatsink. The heatsink supports from socket 775 and AM2 up to the latest sockets from both Intel and AMD.


LEPA shows off column of fans to emphasize styles of lighting

CES 2013 - LEPA was keen to show off their different lighting styles and did so in an interesting way: they made a column of fans.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27771_1_enermax_shows_off_column_of_fans_to_emphasize_styles_of_lighting.jpg

 

The pillar on the left is the Chopper lighting style and the two on the right are of the TB Vegas style. Almost more important than the lighting is the amount of air that they were pushing. Chad Sebring, our Cases and Cooling Editor, said that you could feel the air across the room from it coming up and over.

 

On a completely unrelated, yet totally related, note, LEPA had shown these towers off at another, smaller show and DJs were interested in using it as part of their lighting set up. This shows that the LEPA lighting set up and styles are pretty darn cool.

Corsair shows off impressive 900D chassis at CES 2013

CES 2013 - Corsair added a surprise announcement earlier this morning about the 900D. This super-sized version of the 800D is pretty awesome, at least in my opinion. Chad Sebring, our Cases Editor, disagrees and feels like Corsair should have done more innovation like they did when they originally launched cases like the 800D.

That said, the case is absolutely massive, as you can see by the picture above. It features support for HPTX motherboards, meaning the SR2/SRX motherboards are supported. The system can support up to 15 3.5-inch drives and two PSUs. It stands 27 inches tall and is, quite frankly, one of the biggest cases I've ever seen.

 

It's simple, clean, and elegant in styling, and, according to Corsair, one of the easiest cases to build a system in. If you need lots of room, you should take a look at this beast.

What's new with Swiftech at CES? One of the most awesome AIO water coolers ever

CES 2013 - Unless you live under a rock, it is very likely you already want to get your hands on this sweet little AIO system from Swiftech. The H220 has to be the epitome of what users have cried out for in all the years that Asetek and CoolIT have been dropping the ball and pushing virtually the same products for years with only slight adjustments to their designs, but no matter what, once the seal on an average AIO is broken in any fashion, or you attempt to mod them, you surely throw away the warranty for your efforts.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27750_01_what_s_new_with_swiftech_at_ces_one_of_the_most_awesome_aio_water_coolers_ever.jpg

 

Swiftech is turning the AIO community on its ear as they display the H220 in its CES suite. I have seen a lot of the press information prior to CES, but that means nothing compared to a hands on view of the product. I know this system is mod-able under warranty, but the amount of fine detail, craftsmanship, and the fact that the unit comes completely assembled, even with the fans on it, so that users can take fan screws and slap it inside of the chassis with very little effort, is just fantastic.

A look at Thermaltake's new air and water cooling products at CES 2013

CES 2013 - Thermaltake is all about trying new things in cooling, and just letting the ball land where it may, and this year is no different. Where last year we were looking at the Frio Extreme, one of Tt's largest air coolers, there must have been some backlash to inspire the new Nic series of air cooling. If these four new air coolers weren't enough, the Water 2.0 series has been revised, and now Thermaltake has gone to version 3.0.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27749_01_a_look_at_thermaltake_s_new_cooling_products_at_ces_2013.jpg

 

With the new Nic series of coolers, the Nic stands for non-interference cooler, the main goal here is to get as much cooling potential as possible to allow users a great TDP range of coolers that do not impede on the DIMM slots, nor do they run into any of the power delivery heat sinks found on most motherboards today.

 

The lineup consists of the F3, F4, C4, and C5, with TDP ratings of 180W, 200W, 220W and 230W respectively. Also in this line, you can opt for something smaller and cooled with a single 120mm fan, or go for the gusto with coolers that have shrouds to contain the air flow, or go with a pair of 120mm fans to allow you the best performance of both flavors of the Nic series.

Thermaltake rehashes Chaser MK1 cases and introduces the Urban series at CES 2013

CES 2013 - The chassis selection from Thermaltake was a bit more limited this year at CES, and there weren't any signs of modded chassis' like the Mayan Mod that attracted so much attention last year, but that isn't to say that they had nothing to offer. In fact, while on one hand the Chaser series got a pair of new color choices, there was a quartet of chassis from a whole new line to also bring the techies to the yard.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27748_01_thermaltake_rehashes_chaser_mk1_cases_and_introduces_the_urban_series.jpg

 

Thermaltake had a table with many more Chaser chassis' that we have already seen in black, with many various configurations of cooling mounted inside of them to show off the room and capability of handling both the AIO coolers and tower coolers, at the one end of that table was a pair of Chaser cases in new flavors. As you can see there is now a light blue version and a white version with light blue trim to add to this well know fleet of cases.

CoolerMaster's new cooling discovered during CES 2013

CES 2013 - As I toured the CoolerMaster suite to see what is new this year the first thing I was drawn to at a table was covering all of the new cooling solutions that they plan to bring out this year. They have a couple of takes on products that we have seen and one of which I am currently awaiting my sample of.

 

TweakTown image news/2/7/27746_01_coolermaster_s_new_cooling_at_ces_2013.jpg

 

If you have paid attention, you are likely already aware of the Eisberg customizable water kits. CoolerMaster has seen some action and much interest in this design. In fact, they have actually started at this point offering the Eisberg Solo. Essentially this is the workhorse of all of the Eisberg systems, but now CoolerMaster is offering the head unit with the built in pump and reservoir for the completely custom cooling desires of many builders. This way you get the compact, AIO style of the head unit, but with the ability to now use your own tubing, fittings, and radiators to get exactly what you want from the Eisberg without having the spend for all the extras that you really had no desire to use in some instances anyways.

 

The depressing part of this is that there wasn't a set price that I am aware of, and there was no discussion of an actual date of availability. Since the Eisberg kits are already in retail markets, the availability really isn't in question, but the pricing will make a big decision for those interested in using the Solo for their own custom water cooling loops.
