Many cases claim to offer a combination of style, substance, size and price but Fractal Design’s new Define XL R2 is one of the few to actually deliver on its promises.  It uses a full tower form factor that offers plenty of interior space and advanced features wrapped into a neutral but striking exterior design.

Silverstone Sugo SG09 SFF Case Review

It may be considered a small form factor chassis but Silverstone’s SG09 is absolutely packed with features and has a surprising amount of interior space.  While there isn’t any available space for water cooling, the SG09′s sub-12″ height still allows for mico ATX motherboad  compatibility and even dual graphics card configurations.

What do you get when crossing the popular Cooler Master Storm Trooper with some extra plastic bits and a white paint job?  The new Storm Stryker, a mid tower case which follows closely in its sibling’s successful footsteps but offers a more refined design and only costs a few bucks more.

Cooler Master HAF XB Review

It may be dubbed a LAN Box but Cooler Master’s new HAF XB can still be considered a fully functioning ATX sized enclosure.  It uses a number of innovative design features in order to cram an impressive amount of hardware into a constrained space while still having room for water cooling options.

BitFenix Prodigy Mini ITX Case Review

BitFenix’s Prodigy may only be large enough to fit an ITX motherboard but it targets the enthusiast community by offering enough internal space for multiple water cooling radiators and high end graphics cards.   This is a unique case but is there enough to make it appealing for gamers and overclockers alike?
