The Antec P380 is a full-tower chassis that aims to offer an understated and clean look by employing solid and thick aluminum panels and excellent steel construction. The no-frills interior goes for a useful feature set - all at a price that seems to make sense.

The Pandora ATX is, judging by its look, a larger version of the original Pandora, coming with an LCD screen just like the original while featuring different materials and much broader compatibility.

The Zalman Z9 NEO aims to offer a diverse and useful feature set and good looks and liquid-cooling compatibility, all at an affordable price. Add the fact that it comes equipped with a whooping 5 (!!) fans and it just got even more interesting, while the choice between a black or white version does not help curb the expectations we have diving into this review.

The be quiet! Silent Base 600 is the company's second chassis after the Silent Base 800 from 2014. With the more compact 600 series, be quiet! is aiming to offer the contested mid-tower market a choice of their own, while ensuring that the larger variant's overall look, feel, and engineering are still there.

The Corsair Carbide 400 series is a smaller version of the 600 series. On paper, the case still reads like quite the potent enclosure without any real drawbacks in comparison to the Carbide 600 series, which is already extremely promising as it costs a full 50 US dollars less.

The Corsair Carbide 600C comes with an inverted motherboard layout and aims to offer a perfect mix for those looking to take advantage of such an interior with a wide body, plenty of liquid-cooling compatibility, a 3-stage fan controller, and great cable management.

"No one ever said a gaming PC cannot be small and pretty." - big words from SilentiumPC when it comes to the tiny Gladius Q50 chassis. We take a really close look to see if it can deliver on this promise.

The anidees AI7 is exactly the same size as the AI7m, but allows for a full ATX board instead of maxing out at an mATX variant. This is achieved by offering a completely different interior layout. Let's see what this same-looking but different chassis has under the hood!

The Fractal Design Core 500 is the company's first mainstream SFF chassis. Clocking in at around 60 USD, it aims to offer the perfect balance between size, price, and quality. We take the unit for a spin to see whether it holds up in these areas.

The Cooltek Skall aims to deliver a long list of functional features at an affordable price while offering a clean and timeless design and potent liquid-cooling compatibility. Available with LED fans in three different colors, you will also have an element of choice.

We have the pleasure of reviewing the anidees AI4 today, which pretty much looks like a shrunken AI6 chassis. Unlike some other cases from the brand, the AI4 is only available in black, yet anidees has, on the other hand, done a great job in keeping the exterior look and feel while also making sure to include a good set of features.

The Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 Rev. B is a much-needed update of the popular original silent chassis, with a great price-to-performance ratio and excellent build quality. We take a close look at the updated version to see if its new features are actually worth the refresh.

In Win has been known to apply interesting materials to its high-end enclosures. The company was one of the first to utilize glass and has now brought the feature to the main stream with the 503. We received the black and red variant for review.

The anidees AI6v2 is not simply an update to the original as the name suggests. It is actually a more feature-packed variant, with its predecessor still available for purchase. We take a really close look to figure out whether the additions warrant the price premium.

Nanoxia's Deep Silence 5 is the second-biggest chassis in the "DS" line of enclosures. It comes with affordable pricing, a long list of functional features and has the ability to swallow a huge XL-ATX board as well.

The introduction of the F12C sees the advent of Streamcom's first full ATX enclosure. Besides the ability to hold a fully sized ATX motherboard, it also brings with it a unique mounting mechanism for hard drives and fans. Available in either black or silver, we got the silver variant of the Streacom F12C here for review.

The Cougar QBX costs a mere 50 euro, but offers everything you could be looking for in a compact Mini-ITX gaming rig. It sounds nearly unreal, but we take a closer look to see what you get for such little money and do not find the chassis lacking - on the contrary.

The Fractal Design NODE 202 can be purchased bare or with a 450W SFX PSU. Its aim is to deliver all the space you need for a compact but potent gaming rig, while also sporting the looks to go right next to your TV or even gaming console. We fill the chassis and fire it up to see if it can hold its ground in both usage scenarios.

Cooler Master spent considerable time and effort on presenting the Mastercase series to journalists and the media at Computex 2015. As the product is at the core of their brand refresh and new alignment, it aims to be the driving factor to regaining some lost ground in this competitive market by offering a fresh new approach to differentiate it from the competition.

The Jonsbo RM1 powered by Cooltek turns some serious heads by being extremely compact and lightweight, but with the ability to swallow a fully sized ATX board. On top of that, it comes with a 5.25" drive bay and small fan controller. All this while using an all-aluminum construction.

The anidees AI7m offers full mATX compatibility in a cube chassis, while retaining the ability to equip your system with a large CPU cooler. Having reviewed anidees cases in the past, it'll be interesting to see what the new line of enclosures brings to the table. Those interested in the AI7m can go for a solid or windowed version, and it comes in black or white.

Things may have been a bit quiet on the case front with Zalman, but they still offer a wide range of products, including the Z11 NEO, which surprises. The Z11 NEO looks bulky and comes with a great feature set on paper and a small price tag. Having reviewed Zalman cases quite some time ago, it is now time to figure out what the Z11 NEO brings to the table.

The NOX Xtreme Coolbay CX joins the fray of sub 70 euro mATX cube cases - a hard fought-over case segment. It aims to catch your eye with its ability to hold a 280 mm radiator and its built-in card reader. But will that be enough to take away from more specialized or more colorful mATX cases?

The In Win 707 is the In Win 703's bigger brother, offering the full-tower experience with the same clean and asymmetrical design, but the ability to install potent water cooling and a very modular HDD cage. While the chassis is of high quality and offers the look, we cannot shake the feeling of having seen this all before.

In 100 years, we will look back at our meager existence and when someone quietly asks the question, "How did Skynet get started?", the answer could very well be, "Once, there was this chassis, the Tristellar...". Deepcool created a crazy looking chassis that weighs more empty than most ITX systems do as a whole - all to be a simultaneous showcase of design and function.
