Corsair Obsidian 700D Full-Tower Case
Featured Reviews: Cases

Corsair is a widely known brand in the market thanks to its memory kits. However, since 2009, Corsair started entering new grounds like CPU cooling and PC cases. Those actions resulted in a very appealing Full Tower PC case; the Obsidian 800D, which won lots of awards in different countries because it presented tons of interesting features for high-end users. Of course, those features imply higher costs and therefore, the case is limited to high-end users only. In an attempt to bring a new contender and reduce prices, Corsair released the Obsidian 700D. The CC700D is quite similar to the 800D, but the side-panel window has been removed along with the hot-swappable drives bays, shaving $15 from the final price. Benchmark Reviews tests the Corsair Obsidian 700D Full-Tower Case to check if those removed features haven't diminished functionality and overall performance, and we'll see if it's worth saving $15 and get the 700D against the 800D.

SilverStone Fortress FT02 Computer Case
Featured Reviews: Cases

Some years ago, Intel tried to move beyond the ATX "Advanced Texchnology Extended" motherboard standard with a new design layout called BTX, for "Balanced Technology Extended". One of the main reasons for doing this was to improve the cooling of motherboard components. The new design called for new cases as well, and although a few BTX systems and cases were produced, they never caught on. The ATX standard remains today, albeit with variants like "MATX", "EATX" and "HPTX". But innovation in cooling and case design is hardly dead, as the SilverStone Fortress FT02 cases proves, and Benchmark Reviews checks it out to see if its unique vertical motherboard mounting design has any real-world benefits.
