Chassis: NZXT H500i

NZXT H500i

NZXT has been busy refreshing its catalogue of PC enclosures with a modern range launched under the H-Series umbrella. We've already taken a closer look at the flagship H700i, but this week's arrival of the H500i is arguably of more interest to most mainstream builders. Priced at £100 and introduced as a successor to the ageing but much-liked S340, the H500i has the makings of a well-rounded mid-tower that won't break the bank, so let's take a closer look. Sleek, two-tone styling is a signature feature of the H-Series range, and the H500i doesn't disappoint. Available colour options include red, white (pictured) and blue, as well as an all-black model for those who prefer to keep things simple. All four utilise a matte finish that's elegant and not at all gaudy, and our white review sample is really quite trendy in the flesh.  "

Cooler Master MasterBox K500

Cooler Master has been busy updating its chassis product line in 2018, and amid the numerous new additions, it has high hopes for the MasterBox K500. Designed to offer gaming appeal at a £75 price point, the mid-tower enclosure is Cooler Master's interpretation of what today's PC gamers are looking for in a mainstream case. Given the industry trends that have developed in recent years, it is no surprise to find that glass and RGB lighting are key selling points. MasterBox K500 flaunts an "edge-to-edge," 4mm-thick tempered glass side panel that is lightly tinted and held in place by a bottom hinge and two top thumb screws. It's a sure-fire way of adding an extra layer of elegance and will suit those who want to show off their hardware.  "

be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Rev.2 review

So like be quiet! felt a need to improve on their flagship chassis, the 'new' Dark Base 900 PRO v2 on the outside looks similar to the one released two years ago - but they applied some tweaks and improvements. Dark, style and feature-rich and obviously silent with the help of noise dampening are just a few features that come to mind. The 900 Pro once again has been fitted with a coated tempered glass, the chassis will offer noise isolation thanks to padded dampening, well that and the use of some faster spinning Pure Wings 3 fans (three of them). As such we review the updated revision 2 quiet! Dark Base 900 Pro. Their case has been overhauled a bit with a new fan controller, new Silent Wings 3 fans, a PSU shroud cover, USB 3.1 Gen 2 support as well as 12V LED strip compatibility. The Pro model still retains that sweet Qi wireless charger for your phone. So yeah, silent fans and improved fan controller and LED support. Have a peek at the product we'll review today.  "

Chassis: EVGA DG-77


EVGA has been dabbling in PC chassis since 2013 but the firm's efforts thus far have been niche solutions aimed at specific corners of the market. The £170 Hadron Air targeted small-form-factor enthusiasts, and last year's gargantuan DG-87, initially priced at £220, aimed for the power user seeking full-tower flexibility. There's room in the middle and EVGA has filled that void with the DG-7 Series. Priced from as little as €55 and available in a choice of four models plus two colours, the mid-tower range is designed to appeal to a wide range of mainstream users. The four DG-7 variants all retain the same underlying frame but are differentiated by features such as glass panels, RGB LEDs and the number of included fans. A complete specification comparison is available by clicking here and we have the range-topping DG-77 in for review today.  "

Cooler Master MasterCase H500P

It was way back at Computex that Cooler Master first announced plans to refresh its flagship line of PC chassis with a pair of new offerings. The all-singing, all-dancing Cosmos C700P arrived a couple of weeks ago promising everything but the kitchen sink for enthusiasts willing to hand over £280, but if that's too dear for your liking, you may have decided to wait for the more approachable MasterCase H500P. Officially launched today at a cost of £135, the H500P is a modern-day reimagining of Cooler Master's popular range of HAF enclosures. Described simply as "the must have chassis for people who require High AirFlow," the H500P's signature feature is a pair of extra large 200mm front intakes guaranteeing a plentiful supply of clear air. There's more to it than that, mind, so let's take a closer look.  "

Chassis: NZXT H700i

NZXT H700i

If we had to pick a favourite chassis from the last few years, there's a good chance NZXT's H440 would get the nod. One of the first high-profile enclosures to eject the optical drive, the H440 ticked most of the right boxes for a new build in 2014 and didn't break the bank at £90. Said case has since undergone numerous makeovers, with limited edition skins, additional colour schemes and a New Edition launched early in 2016, yet a true successor has been a long time coming. That wait is now over as NZXT is revamping its product range with a trio of cases launched under the H-Series umbrella. The H700i, H400i, and H200i are said to showcase the manufacturer's vision for modern PC building, and the H700i, first to roll off the production line carrying a £200 price tag, is in for review today.  "

be quiet! Dark Base 700

Having ventured into the PC chassis marketplace in 2014, German manufacturer be quiet! has quickly established a range of well-received enclosures. The Dark Base 900 continues to serve as a highly capable full-tower solution, while the more reserved Pure Base 600 ticks a lot of the right boxes for a mainstream mid-tower build, but what if you want the expansive feature set of the former in the footprint of the latter? Enter the Dark Base 700. Let's not beat around the bush; the Dark Base 700, priced at £175, is in our estimation be quiet!'s best chassis to date. PC enclosures tend to run the risk of being boring - they are ultimately mundane steel boxes irrespective of how much glass or LEDs are thrown on top - but the Dark Base 700 has enough tricks up its sleeves to keep things interesting.  "
