Prolimatech Magnetic Pin to Make Shuffling Fans Around a Case Snappy

Prolimatech announced a unique new accessory that makes it easier to attach fans to metal cases, at least those made of steel (and not aluminum). The Magnetic Pin is a conventional rubber fan bolt with a magnet on its head. This allows fans with four of these to snap onto cases' fan frames. The magnet is embedded into a rubber cavity, which dampens vibrations between the fan and the case, minimizing noise. Prolimatech is selling these pins in sets of four. The company did not mention pricing.

MSI Barricade Case Pictured

Despite being a popular motherboard, graphics card, and notebook vendor, MSI maintains an alter-ego: that of a PC case vendor. Unbeknownst to many, MSI secretly launches cases to select markets, some of which are mature markets, with little or no documentation on its international websites or PR channels. The company launched its Interceptor Raptor and Interceptor NightHawk cases in 2011. Its latest in the Interceptor series is named Barricade. The case was recently reviewed by LegitReviews.

Pictured below, the Barricade (model no: IN-535) is an ATX mid-tower case measuring 450(L) x 185(W) x 412(H) mm, weighing 7.8 kg, made of steel and ABS. It features a mostly-perforated front, with its utility panel (1x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, HDA front-panel jacks), three 5.25-inch drive bays, and a large intake for two 120 mm blue LED-lit fans. Its interiors, including its motherboard tray, are mostly colored in the same shade of blue as the MSI logo. Apart from the three 5.25-inch bays, the Barricade features four 3.5-inch bays with support for 2.5-inch drives. The motherboard tray has cutouts for cable and CPU cooler management. Ventilation includes two 120 mm front intake fans, one 120 mm top exhaust fan, and provision for additional bottom and rear fans. The Interceptor Barricade from MSI is priced at US $79.99.

COUGAR Introduces the Challenger Gaming Case

COUGAR, leading German PC case and power supply brand, officially announces their latest high-end PC gaming case, the COUGAR Challenger. The CHALLENGER mid-tower case is particularly targeting gamers demanding for huge upgradeability capacity, best airflow and optimized ventilation characteristics.

COUGAR's specific black and orange color combination paired with the large metal-mesh front bezel lend it an aggressive yet stylish appearance. But the ultimate design high-light is to be found right on the top of the case: to power up your computer you first have to lift a cover lid just like a pilot unlocks the missile button to fire. A safety feature to prevent accidental touch, which at the same time makes you feel in gaming mode right away. To play even most advanced games, the COUGAR CHALLENGER offers sufficient space for powerful graphics cards of up to 410 mm length.

Akasa Euler Fanless PC Case Pictured Some More

Akasa's Euler fanless PC case, which was first pictured at Computex 2012, is inching towards a September 2012 launch. Some of its first press-shots were leaked to the web. The pictures reveal its interiors, including the CPU block that conducts heat to the metallic body, where it is dissipated. This passive CPU cooling mechanism, according to a new report, can handle thermal loads of up to 35W, making it fit for low-power dual-core processors. Akasa Euler will be sold at an affordable price, according to the report.

Scythe Unveils ACB-TYPE3 Acrylic Open-Air Case

Scythe unveiled its newest open-air transparent PC case made mostly of 5 mm-thick clear-acrylic, the ACB-TYPE3. Unlike most boxy or picnic basket-shaped open-air cases, the ACB-TYPE3 uses a tower-type design, with the motherboard tray along the plane of the base, rather than perpendicular to it. The drive bays (3x 5.25", 3x 3.5", 2x 2.5") and PSU bay are arranged in a compartment below the motherboard tray.

The Scythe ACB-TYPE3 supports most ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX motherboards. The design also allows for CPU coolers to be as tall as 190 mm. There are plenty of cutouts for wiring and tubing to pass through the various compartments of the case. The lack of side-panels is what makes it an open-air case, as do the lack of included fans. The best part -- it comes dismantled for you to assemble yourself, and its box isn't much bigger than the one a flat-panel monitor ships in.

Cooler Master Introduces the Elite 120 Advanced Mini-ITX PC Case

Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, power supply, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, launches the Elite 120 Advanced Mini-ITX case today. This case will suit the modern day needs for an HTPC in the living room due to its elegant design or as a server case with its space for 5 HDDs/SSDs.

Mini-ITX size, full ATX features

The Elite 120 Advanced is a very compact case (24.0 x 20.7 x 40.1 cm) with a stylish design to fit perfectly next to a television as an HTPC for example. The demands for these kinds of systems are steadily rising though, that is why this new Cooler Master case is aimed at the present and the future. The Elite 120 Advanced has the space to house a much more affordable full size ATX PSU and also long VGA cards like the HD7990 or the GTX690. There is also the option to install a 5.25" optical drive and it features a USB 3.0 port for very fast data transfer to give this case all the options to build the perfect HTPC.

Another innovation from the BitFenix Design Lab, BitFenix SuperCharge Technology offers a convenient and quick way to charge mobile devices right from your PC. Recently, similar solutions introduced by competitors have begun making their way into the market, sometimes with hazardous results. In fact, a recent case led to a wire catching on fire during normal operation. Today, BitFenix is reaffirming SuperCharge technology as a quick, easy and safe way to charge today's mobile devices.

Akasa Unveils Euler Fanless PC Case

Akasa unveiled the Euler fanless PC case for thin mini-ITX motherboards. Made mostly of aluminum, the Euler's body doubles up as a heatsink for the processor. Internally, the Euler has a relocatable CPU block, which conducts heat from the CPU to the chassis by heat pipes. The aluminum ridges on along the top and sides of the body dissipate heat. Apart from the thin mini-ITX motherboard, the case also has room for a 2.5-inch drive, and a slimline optical drive. Akasa will launch the Euler fanless mini-ITX case a little later this year.

Enermax Display Pair of New ATX Mid-Tower Cases

Enermax displayed a pair of upcoming ATX mid-tower cases. The company hasn't finalized names of the two. One of them is labeled under Enermax' main brand (model: ECA3260), while the other, under its Ostrog series (ECA3270). The ECA3260 is designed to be extremely airy thanks to its fully-perforated front; while the CM HAF-looking ECA3270 offers "massive HDD storage room" (we count 8 3.5/2.5-inch bays). Both cases are capable of holding large (240 mm) fans, and feature largely tool-free interiors. Both cases make good use of the company's Vegas series fans for styling/illumination. Enermax will launch the the two cases in the second half of 2012.
