Hexus reviews a fairly unadorned, but extremely stylish case from Akasa. For those of you who prefer a little flash at the front, check out the Janus, Samurai or the Dracula, and Coolermaster announces that their CM Stacker line is BTX ready.
"Akasa, while not the original manufacturers of the chassis, have worked with the original creators to tweak it just as they like it, engineering out any initial flaws they saw and paying close attention to the smaller details and the wider coolin

Thermaltake has a nice all aluminium case, and 3DVelocity takes a good look at it. Duelling Tsunamis, Yeong Yangs, and Liang Lis; all your favorites for a Monday morning.
"In a market full of aluminium-fronted steel cases, it's nice to see Thermaltake have opted to run with a complete aluminium construction. This may take away slightly from the rigidity but look at that weight! The 0.8mm aluminium chassis means the case tips the scales at just a shade over 13lbs without the power supply.

I find large heatpipe heatsinks are starting to look like car engines, and the Thermalright XP-90 that Silent PC Review looks at is no exception. If that HS/F isn't the one for you, the Phoronix has looked at a few other types, and that's not even half the reviews today.
"Thermalright's XP-90 CPU heatsink, which features four heatpipes, thin aluminum fins and a nickel-plated copper base, was released at the same time as the XP-120.

Another random mix of cooling supplies. A True Review looks at a RAM heatspreader, several sites review silent ways to cool your video card, many take a look at the JetArt notebook cooler, and more. When you're done, go Vote if you should be!
"Our computers have become one big show and tell. With the advent of acrylic cases and case windows, visually what is on the inside has become just as important as what is on the outside. Moreover, what is on the inside does not sit there in hopes that we look; it reaches out and grabs our attention. How you ask?
