Lian Li Announces the PC-T70 Open-Bench Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is eager to announce the PC-T70 test bench. After productive collaboration, taking feedback from high-end PC hardware reviewers, Lian Li sought to create a test bench that could both provide unhindered access for enthusiasts who want to rapidly swap hardware, and those who like to use their test benches as a workstation. Lian Li's latest test bench is its most flexible yet - a sleek, minimal platform for easy hardware swapping, with an optional kit that encloses the bench with radiator mounts and an acrylic cover.

"Testing on an open bench requires careful planning, else it leads to misguided results. Most gamers have closed cases, affecting thermal, acoustic, and even performance results compared to exposed hardware. I'm working to represent that more accurately. While my measurements are easier to collect, more applicable, and completely objective, it was the close cooperation with Lian Li that helped move this project forward. The closed case gave me the platform I've been needing, and that readers have been asking for, to facilitate more realistic reviews." - Igor Wallossek - Senior Contributing Editor Tom's Hardware.

MSI Unveils the TORX 120 mm Case Fan

MSI wants to monetize its innovations made in graphics card cooler fan designs. The company rolled out a "TORX" branded case fan that is based on the same design as the fans found in the company's TwinFrozr-series VGA coolers, first as part of its Core Frozr series CPU coolers, and now as in a standalone package.

The first TORX branded fan in a standalone package is 25 mm-thick 120 mm, with a conventional square frame, and rubberized mounts. It takes in 4-pin PWM power input, and spins between 500-1,800 RPM, with airflow ranging between 19.79-71.27 CFM, and a proportionate output noise range of 17.2-33.6 dBA.

Master Case 4 and Master Case 6 by Cooler Master Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of the Master Case 4 and Master Case 6 by Cooler Master. Both cases are built on a slightly different design language than the Master Case 3, Master Case 5, and Master Case Maker 7, in that they lack the signature top-edge hexagonal element housing the front-panel.

You can cram up to three independent liquid cooling loops into this one, with room for three 480 mm x 120 mm (or 420 mm x 140 mm) radiators, over a dozen 3.5-inch drives, and much more. The side panel features a classy tempered glass panel covering the top (motherboard tray) compartment, with a grill covering the bottom (drives + PSU) compartment, that doubles up as vent for one of your three big radiators. It's just as modular as the Master Case Maker 5, and you can use any of its readily available accessories (except body panels) with this case.

Cooler Master's Outdoorsy Master Case 5T Detailed

Crimson-red lines the border of the signature hexagon element on the front, and the interiors, including the motherboard tray, the drive cages, and the slot covers. The other, more visible change, of course is the top static handle, which lets you carry the case around to LANs. This handle doesn't come in the way of the top-panel's cooling features, including a vent for a triple-fan radiator underneath.
