- Chieftec BX Case

If you're a fan of big cases with plenty of internal space, you'd quite possibly take a strong liking to Chieftech's BX series of cases which Hexus have checked out over the weekend. They come in a full range of colours and can be modded quite simply with a bunch of supporting accessories (eg. customisable grills). All in all, looks to be a solid and reasonably well thought out design.


Dragon, Matrix, Scorpio and BX are only a handful of names for Chieftec cases. The BX range is Chieftec's latest creation, a rather bland and boring name when you look back at previous names they have used. The BX comes in various different designs and colours which I'm sure will baffle anybody; I bet even the employees at Chieftec get confused with all the model numbers. To add even more confusion they have a list of accessories you can buy too. Three different grill designs, 7 different colour grills, 7 different colour cases and matching window panels are all among the accessories for the Chieftec BX. All these accessories allow the user to customise their case without attacking it with the case modder's much-loved tool, the Dremel hobby drill.


- Hercules Gamesurround MUSE Pocket

Bjorn3D have taken a look at a portable soundcard from Hercules over the weekend which would be a very convenient device when travelling with laptops etc. on a regular basis. It's surround capabilities are apparently somewhat lacking, but all other aspects look to prove highly worthy for the job.


With the recent invasion of portable music devices, people have been able to listen to their favorite tunes whenever and wherever. Many of these devices have the ability to integrate with your home theater, PC and auto relatively easily, which I think some of their rapid growth can be attributed to. Why have a separate player for each location when one device will work in all locations? The same concept applies with the Hercules Gamesurround MUSE Pocket. The Pocket is designed to give you "Instant audio at your fingertips," whether you are using it at home on your main PC or taking it on that boring road trip for work to use with your laptop. The Pocket is for the audiophile looking to enhance his or her audio experience wherever he or she may be.
