Computex 2015 - Corsair has just unveiled its new Obsidian Series 750D with a new Airflow Edition that sports a perforated front grill which increases the airflow into the case, especially for systems that really need more cooling.
The new Obsidian Series 750D features plenty of room for expansion, with high-end cooling that will allow 750D Airflow Edition owners to build an enthusiast grade system without worrying about keeping their components cool. Inside, there are three AF140L fans to keep everything cool. When it comes to room for expansion, here's what we have:
- Perforated front grille for improved cooling
- Nine expansion slots for larger motherboards and running multiple video cards or expansion boards simultaneously
- Six tool-free 3.5"/2.5" combo bays in two modular hard drive cages, with room for two more cages for up to 12 combo drive bays
- Four tool-free 2.5" side-mounted drive cages for SSDs, out of the airflow path
- Three tool-free 5.25" bays for expansion
- Four front mounted USB ports for easy peripheral or external storage device connection
Computex 2015 - Corsair has just announced a new PSU range with its RMi Series, which is offering 80 Plus Gold efficiency, silent operation with a 'silent Zero-RPM' fan, Corsair Link operation, and much more.
Corsair will be offering its new RMi Series PSUs in 650W, 750W, 850W and 1000W capacities. Corsair has built the new RMi Series PSUs from the ground up to offer 80 PLUS Gold energy efficiency, with 105C rated Japanese capacitors, so that gamers don't need to worry about using power hungry components with the RMi Series PSUs.
Inside, the RMi Series PSUs will feature a 140mm fluid dynamic bearing equipped cooling fan which runs in "Zero RPM" fan mode, only spinning up when the PSU only needs it. The Corsair RMi Series PSUs are fully modular, making them much easier on cable management inside of your PC.
I'm just 7 hours away from jumping on my flight to Taipei for Computex 2015, and just as I'm packing my bags I've noticed that Corsair has posted a tease of an upcoming product that the company is calling "Bulldog".
Bulldog is coming. Are you ready? Keep an eye out for more teasers throughout the week.Any guesses as to what we're announcing? Let the speculation begin! #PCGaming #pcmrhttp://www.corsair.com/en-us/landing/bulldog #CorsairBulldogPosted by Corsair on Tuesday, 26 May 2015
We don't know what it could be, so we're opening up the question to you guys and girls. What do you think Bulldog will be? Corsair is aiming for the #pcmasterrace crowd here, so could we expect a new headset? Chassis? Cooler? Keyboard? Mouse?
PC enthusiast company Phanteks has announced the addition of the Titanium Green to its Enthoo Pro Series line of computer cases. The chassis is ideal for PC owners especially interested in water cooling, with a window side panel to add a bit of flare while showing off the cooling setup.
The company said its Enthoo Pro Titanium Green Edition will have multiple radiator support, removable SSD bracket, closed HDD panel, and Velcro cable management. The entire Enthoo Pro line has been designed to enhance cooling potential while also making it easier to swap and expand hardware inside the chassis.
The Phanteks Enthoo Pro Titanium Green Edition will be available starting in June, with a $99.99 MSRP.
Watercooling is well and truly back into the mainstream market, with EK riding the wave through some high quality products. In a recent press release, the new Supremacy EVO X99 LGA2011v3 water block was announced as ready and available.
Modelled here on an ASRock and GIGABYTE board, this water block is designed as the "highest performance CPU water block for Intel X99 / LGA-2011-3 platform" as pointed out by EK, adding that the total package "comes with pre-assembled, error-preventing mounting mechanism."
Designed with a copper base, EK claims this product to be so effective due to advanced heat dissipation through the use of thin liquid channels for your coolant to navigate through.
We've started covering a few different brands here recently on TweakTown in order to give everyone a feel for what is happening on the technology market from end to end. In recent news, Anidees has released its new AI6 v2 chassis, further perpetuating the minimalistic trend as seen in recent years.
Featuring a brushed metal and mainly black look, this case is an expansion on the original AI6 design, boasting an added SD card reader and fan controller to the original 2x USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports originally on offer.
Coupled with this is improved watercooling support for three 240mm radiators placed in the top, front and bottom of the chassis.
If you're looking for an 80 Plus Gold power supply to help you beat the heat, FSP has just announced its Hydro G series which boasts extra cooling options in 650w, 750w and 850w sizing options.
Claiming that the "PSU chassis is transformed into heat sink" in a recent press release, FSP has designed this product so the whole PSU chassis helps improves its airflow, adding in a silent fluid dynamic bearing fan to ensure high temperatures and extreme load doesn't bother it at all.
In addition to being fully modular with a new cable layout, you can also choose what color logo you wish to display in order to fit your overall color scheme - check the images above and below for a representation for what's on offer.
In the lead up to COMPUTEX, SilverStone has been pushing out a few more cases to increase their range of SKU into the market.
TweakTown covered the FRZ01 slim form factor chassis recently and now there's the SG12 on offer adding to the, SilverStone SUGO series. Looking old school in design, this case has a little flavor of Thermaltake from the 2000's in the overall aesthetic, seeing a blue strip line the front and center of the front-facing panel.
Featuring support for coolers up to 82mm in height, a built in handle for transportation and capabilities for Micro-ATX motherboards and full ATX power supplies, this case is seemingly targeted at LAN participants.
With the SUGO series first being launched in 2005, it seems SilverStone has brought back the old school vibe with its SG12, now to see if its performance can back it up.
If you're looking to invest in something a little different, Streacom has just announced the release of its new F12C ATX case.
Being first ATX case on offer by this brand, this ultra-minimalistic design will be shown off at the upcoming trade show known as COMPUTEX in Taipei, Taiwan. Sporting 4mm thick aluminum on the exterior, the latest press release claims that these have been sandblasted for a top notch finish.
Streacom has added water cooling support and additional fan options alongside the ability to support 310mm long expansion cards all contained within the 420x320x184mm structure.
Compared to the standard Define R5 model, this Blackout Edition will supply you with blacked out PCI slot covers, HDD trays and clips, SSD brackets, a white power LED and all black dynamic GP-14 fans.
Released in a windowed or windowless version, the window option comes in a tinted theme, selling the whole blacked out theme.
Setting you back $109.99 and $119.99 respectively when on the shelves soon, Fractal claims that this case also features its ModuVent fan vent covers and all black Dynamic Series fans in order to provide you with a quieter and cooler experience.
