Miss one Monday, and a dozen new reviews come out.   First up today we have the MGE Titanium at Think Computers, a case that seems to incorporate every new innovation in case design from the past year into one case.  It is roomy, it still has enough space for a watercooling setup, and all that, and a price tag around the $100 mark.  If that's not the case you're looking for, there are almost 20 other reviews to choose from!

Newegg sent along word about their latest Case Mod contest winners.  The winner built a PC in a Ford Bronco model

It's very bright, and with a 12v pump, very powerful, Hexus takes apart Asetek's WaterChill Xtreme 12V Pump & Reservoir.

"The design is revolutionary. I'm sure we'll see copycat designs surfacing to flatter the Asetek engineers. Performance is excellent, this pump should be able to handle the most taxing of watercooling circuits.

At 1000 Watts of power, the Enermax Galaxy is the Toolman's dream PSU.

Currently in final production at the time of writing, the two samples in the photos are engineering samples so we couldn't get out hands on one for testing, but having run the figures past Rys, they add up to just a little over 1000W output, drawing 1400W from the mains… so no need for a dimmer switch in the lounge anymore!
