In the old days, PC gamers would sit in front of a large CRT monitor in a dedicated room littered with spare parts, game boxes (yes, there was actually a time when PC games came in big retail boxes!), empty potato chip bags, and other things scattered all around. Not anymore. Vendors are starting to recognize that PC gamers are mobile creatures, and so we're seeing more streaming options. While at the Consumer Electronics Show last week, NZXT showed us a PC streaming device of its own called DOKO.
NZXT last fall launched its S340 mid-tower ATX chassis, an entry-level case intended to bring a premium quality design without emptying your bank account (it's listed on Newegg for $70 plus $8 shipping). Now as we embark on a new year, NZXT is offering new color options for its S340 case -- "Gloss Blue" and "Gloss Red," both of which are accents to the matte black paneling.
If you look closely at the thumbnail, you'll see what looks like the Windows Start Menu overlaid on some computer parts. Your eyes aren't deceiving you. This month's Rig of the Month is centered around an incredibly basic, but undeniably awesome idea. Chris “Mosquito” Albee from TheModZoo.com installed an LCD panel—minus the backlight—into the side of a white NZXT H230 case. The result is simply incredible.
NZXT's growing family of computer cases now includes the Source 340 (S340), a compact mid-tower made from strong, cold-rolled steel. In an attempt to offer system builders more elbow room so that piecing together a PC is a little easier, NZXT eight-sixed the optical drive bays and relocated the hard drive bays to a lower position. According to NZXT, these subtle design choices opened up the case.
On your mark, get set, build! Go, go, go, put that PC together! What's that you say, you're missing a computer case? Oh dear, that is certainly a problem. Lucky for you, we're problem solvers.

You've probably heard that we only use about 10 percent of our brains, though studies have debunked that myth. You actually use much more than you think, though one disadvantage to filling up that mysterious blob inside your skull is that you can't just hop online and order a bigger version. You can, however, upgrade your hard drive when it fills up, and like our brains, we tend to use more of our HDDs than we think until sudddenly we get a message saying we're low on space - do'h!

NZXT will be the first to offer a case "Designed by Razer"
You'll find a wide assortment of gaming and audio peripherals if you sift through Razer's catalog of products. Keyboards, mice, headsets, controllers, and even full-blown gaming systems are among the products bearing Razer's label. What you won't find are any Razer brand cases, though that's about to change. Razer just launched a PC case design licensing program in which it will work with select third-party chassis makers to produce and sell Razer branded enclosures.
Several generations from now, computer gamers will look back and giggle at how we once thought gaming on a graphics card with 1,536 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory a 256-bit bus was acceptable. While, snooty gamers from the future, we bite our thumbs at your general direction! Here in the present, those specs represent a capable card, one that's the topic of today's top deal -- an Asus GeForce GTX 770 for $310 with free shipping (normally $340 - use coupon code: [EMCPDPD27]; additional $10 mail-in-rebate). Making a great card even better, Asus swapped the reference cooler for its DireCU II cooling solution for 20 percent lower temps and 2X quieter operation. Snazzy!

NZXT offers a robust line of case, cooling products, power supplies, and related accessories. However, one thing the company hasn't dabbled with up to this point is software. That all changes today. NZXT just launched its CAM software -- essentially a companion utility for your PC that allows you to monitor system vitals, such as GPU and CPU temps, along with a range of other data.
Go big or go home. Living by that motto is the reason why you own a full size truck, why you always order a trenta when getting your coffee fix, and why you cohabit your dwelling with an Irish Wolfhound instead of a Xoloitzcuintle. It's also why you're interested in today's top deal featuring NZXT's Phantom Black Full Tower Computer Case for $75 with free shipping (normally $110 - use coupon code: [EMCPEPC89]; addtional $20 mail-in-rebate). There's a lot of case here for the money, and it also comes with four cooling fans and integrated fan controller.
