Release roundup: Modular PSUs and stylish cases
Each week, we gather miscellaneous press releases and announcements for our release roundup. This week, we've got news from BitFenix, Cooler Master, and Thermaltake:
- "Color your world with BitFenix Neos." This latest case from BitFenix comes in black and white versions with a choice of black, white, blue, red, and silver mesh front panels—and an optional windowed side panel. The front mesh has kind of a Mac Pro vibe, but the rest of the enclosure is pretty standard, as far as ATX cases go. There's room for two optical drives at the front, three 3.5" hard drives and three 2.5" SSDs in sideways drive trays, and three 120-mm fans (including the bundled front intake). BitFenix expects to have the Neos out in stores later this month.
- "Cooler Master V Semi-Modular Series PSU." Cooler Master's new VSM power supplies feature semi-modular cabling, 80 Plus Gold certification, five-year warranty coverage, and wattage ratings of 550W, 650W, and 750W. We're told pricing for those three units will be $99.99, $109.99, and $119.99, respectively, with availability scheduled for May 27. We've actually got one of the 750W models in the lab as we speak; we'll have more details to share in a little while.
- "World premiere of the new Thermaltake Level 10 Gaming Station Titanium Limited Edition." We reviewed the original Level 10 almost four years ago, and it's still one of the most unique PC enclosures out there. Now, Thermaltake is bringing it back as a limited-edition version with a "titanium finish." This special edition of the Level 10 will be "restricted to 500 builds worldwide," the company says. Thermaltake plans to start taking orders in July and to have cases shipped out in September.
