Das PC-Modding wird immer beliebter. Fast jeder hat schon mal ein gemoddetes Gehäuse oder zumindest das Zubehör für jene gesehen. Manche hat dies fasziniert und andere wiederum nicht – Ob’s gefällt, muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden. Doch der Trend geht zu immer ausgefalleneren Gehäusen und zu dessen Zubehör über. Die Meisten begnügen sich mit diversen Kaltlichtkathoden, die in allerlei Farben leuchten. Doch wer etwas Besonderes haben will, sollte sich auch einmal mit UV-Licht auseinander setzen. Es lassen sich damit wunderbare Effekte erzielen, die man mit normalem Licht nicht erzielen kann. Dies nahmen wir zum Anlass uns einmal diverse UV-Artikel anzusehen. Wie diese sich schlagen – und vor allem aussehen -, erfahrt ihr in diesem Artikel

Chenbro PC6112222 Case Review
Overall the Chenbro PC61122 is another solid case with some unique features. This is the second case we've reviewed from Chenbro and are admittedly we have been rather impressed with the build quality and little extras that Chenbro puts into their cases..

MSI FX5200-TDR128 Video Card
Awhile back we saw the release of the NVIDIA NV34 graphics processor. When the chip was released, it was not as fast as everyone was expecting. It still provides decent performance at a bargain cost and is designed to compete with other budget cards from ATi. However the competition is small since the 5200 is one of the only video cards in its price range that offers DirectX 9 support.

WC review
My first thought about the radiator was “That’s small!” The radiator was also blue like the water-block, however it was finished with a high-gloss acrylic paint. The radiator is designed to replace an 80mm exhaust fan. This radiator has dual fans; one goes between the case wall and the radiator and the other goes on the inside of the radiator toward the pc interior

Thermaltake Volcano 11+ HSF Review
The revised look is a welcome change and can be classified somewhere in-between the Volcano 9 and the Volcano 7+ as evident characteristics and designs were implemented from both units. One of the more noticeable is the addition of a newer fan shroud, which will be covered later on in the review. The Volcano 11+ features a black color theme coupled all copper construction. The Volcano 11+ is based upon the growing Xaser themed cases and features a Xaser style fan grill and newly colored Smart Fan II for a universal theme. The overall weight of the assembled unit is a respectable 476 Grams.
