Following the success of the Razer-branded NZXT H440 released one year ago, Razer has once again teamed-up with NZXT to create another Razer-branded PC case: the NZXT S340 Designed by Razer Edition mid-tower.
The NZXT S340 Designed by Razer Edition is Razer’s second case that carries the “Designed by Razer” moniker. The aim of the Designed by Razer program is to apply the Razer gaming theme to as many PC components as possible for a consistent appearance across the setup. As such, the custom S340 is decked with some Razer-exclusive designs including Razer’s signature matte black finish with green accents, the triple-headed snake logo on the [...]
When we visited NZXT at CES this year, we expected more of the same from the company. Cases, power supplies, fans, case accessories, etc. The usual, if you will. But imagine our surprise when we went to their suite to find none of that. Instead, their suite was completely empty save a single product – a new toy NZXT calls the DOKO, a PC streaming device that promises to bring the PC into the living room at a fraction of the cost of an actual PC.
Equipped with a Wonder Media 8750 CPU and 256MB of RAM, the DOKO is capable of streaming 1080p content at 30FPS. Simply install the software on your PC, hook up the DOKO streaming box to your TV and internet, connect the [...]
Back in 2004, NZXT started out as a computer case manufacturer based out of Los Angeles, California producing some very innovative cases such as the NZXT Nemesis, NZXT Guardian, NZXT Gamma, etc., and with their success in the computer case market, they’ve recently branched out quite a bit to cover a wide variety of computer related products such as CPU coolers, power supplies, case accessories, notebook coolers and more.
Today, we’re going to be reviewing a couple of NZXT’s offerings from their Havik series of CPU coolers, the Havik 120 and Havik 140. Both CPU coolers have quite a solid reputation among the hardware enthusiast community [...]
Truth be told, when I first laid eyes the CM Storm Trooper last year, I wasn’t quite sold. Not because it wasn’t a good case, no, on the contrary, it was a great case; possibly among the best Cooler Master has ever made. But, compared to some of the other stuff on the market (some even from Cooler Master themselves), it just seemed a bit dull – a bit boring even.
Why? Well, it’s a high end gaming case designed to house some of the most beautiful, most expensive computer components in the world, and Cooler Master forgot to give it a windowed sidepanel. Oops! In addition, the outward appearance of the case seemed kinda dull to [...]
Since 2004, NZXT has been bringing all kinds of unique and innovative case accessories, cases, and CPU coolers to the enthusiast/gamer markets. One such case accessory of course is case lighting, which is probably one of the easiest ways to give your windowed case a brand new look.
This is why today, we’re going to be taking a look at NZXT’s latest case lighting kit, the NZXT HUE. The HUE, unlike most LED lighting kits on the market, is a fully customizable RGB (Red Green Blue) LED light strip. Because the HUE uses LEDs to produce lighting, it allows the HUE run cool and be very power efficient while still being able to pump [...]
Home theater PCs have always been a popular niche PC and it’s not difficult to understand the appeal of having one. Imagine a typical AV stack these days. You’ve got your AV receiver, you’ve got your DVD/Blu-Ray player, you’ve got your cable/satellite box, maybe a separate PVR unit, a game console or two, and maybe even a hard drive or two with a media player device. That’s a lot of stuff.
Now if you think about it, with the exception of the AV receiver and maybe the cable/satellite box, a typical PC can do all of that and more – given that the proper hardware is purchased. That said, one thing about PCs is that [...]
