It's not that In-Win are a no name company, it's just that their PSUs are usually found pre-installed in cases.  X-bit Labs grabbed 6 of their PSUs, of differing wattages and series to test them with the newer, power hungry components found in enthusiast's PCs.  Find out if they can still hold their own in this big test session.

NZXT's Zero case is an unassuming case that hides some interesting features.  Overclockers Club found the most odd feature is the front cover.  In order to open it and get at your optical drives, you would have to remove anything that is plugged into the front panel.  However, if you are looking for a quiet case that can keep your system cool, you may forgive them.

Thermaltake’s Big Typhoon VX is an aggressive CPU cooler that performs extremely well and now comes with a more powerful, variable speed fan. Unfortunately, the new tool-less mounting system left me unimpressed.

Oooh ... Shiny!!!

HotHardware can't overstress the importance of a good power supply, and provide you with some help in getting one.  The Toughpower comes in at 750W with a 14cm fan for cooling, and some nice cable management.  The Turbojet is 1.1kW with a pair of 80mm fans for cooling and a more traditional (non-modular) cable system.  See which is right for you, or skip them both and head straight to Lee's review of the Akasa Power+ 650W.
