NZXT H2 Classic Computer Case – Logan’s Video Overview

NXZT H2 Classic Computer Case - Logan Video Cap
NZXT makes great computer cases. Logan loves cases that make things easy – like taking out front bay retainers, fans, hard drives and good wire management, in fact, without those things he will rarely look or talk about them. Today I saw this video was put up this morning and now I actually want to run out and buy this case today to upgrade from my current gigantic NZXT case.

To get the full details, watch the video and you can get the full details, but I’ll tell you what made this Classic H2 case from NZXT a must have by me:

  • 8 hard drive bays (with easy access)
  • a case-top drive bay which allows you to pop a drive in and out. Amazing
  • the “wireless” case front fans
  • the magnetic fan cover
  • soundproofing foam integration

Keep reading to watch the video and see these great features close up!

Hard Drive Stacks Ready to Go

Actually, it is the company’s mission to be the best in its field, offering superior, innovative products at great value that ensure maximum customer satisfaction, and the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure is yet another example of how they accomplish this mission every day!.

Thanks to the innovative minds of the people at Ultra, anyone can finally configure their hard drive setup just the way they want it. Each Stackable unit can be operated separately, giving you the freedom to purchase only the parts you need. The Ultra Stackable product line offers three different models to choose from: IDE to USB 2.0, IDE to USB 2.0 or FireWire, and SATA to USB 2.0 or ESATA.

It is better to get the best out of both worlds, so a USB 2.0 model with the Firewire functionality is a smarter choice. Although the USB 2.0 transfer rate is 80 Mbps faster than the Firewire’s rate of 400Mbps, getting two interfaces will serve you well in the long run.

Aside from the plug and play USB 2.0 and Firewire Interface feature, the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure supports support 3.5″ ATA 133/100/66 Hard Drives and a maximum capacity of 750 GB.

Anyone can use the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure because its minimum system requirements include Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, or Vista, Mac OS 9 and above, and a CDROM drive for driver installation. Also, the drive enclosure comes with a user’s manual, warranty registration card, drivers for Windows 98, an AC adaptor, a 5 foot USB 2.0 cable, a 5 foot FireWire cable, and two vertical brackets and four soft feet for horizontal stacking. The back of the enclosure features a 30mm active cooling fan, an on/off toggle switch, two 1394 FireWire Ports a USB 2.0 port and a DC power port. So, power can come from the included power adapter or directly from the Ultra stackable 180-Watt Multi-outlet DC 12V Power Center. The inclusion of two 1394 FireWire ports allows for up to three FireWire devices to be joined together. This promises a convenient way to add a couple more FireWire enclosures to the stack for compatible systems.

What makes personalization of hard drives through this stackable product a great buy is that its maker is offering a one year limited warranty on every 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure. And as if that is not great enough, that warranty can be upgraded to cover three years just by registering the product on the Ultra Products website.

Being smart, portable and practical, the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure is promising to be another one of Ultra Products’ breakthrough devices that give customers great value for their money.

Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Barebone

Visionman Gaming BareboneBuilding a gaming barebone from scratch could be a very satisfying and fun endeavor. Having full control over which parts to use is an exciting privilege that you simply wouldn’t be able to enjoy with preconfigured Gaming PC packages. It’s a lot like building with Lego blocks wherein the only limitation is your own sense of creativity. At the same time however, with so many parts to decide on and so many models to consider, it could also be a burdensome task—especially when you have no clue where to start. Fortunately, with the Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Barebone, what you get is a powerful barebones package that you can then upgrade with an impressive variety of options to choose from.

The most important consideration when buying a barebones package is its motherboard. Every other component, from the video card to RAM type, completely depends on what the motherboard is capable of. The Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Chassis comes equipped with a Biostar Tforce TF7025-M2 motherboard which offers all the features you need for modern gaming. The motherboard supports up to 4 gigabytes of DDR2 memory. The package already comes pre-equipped with 2 gigabytes of high-speed DDR2 -800 RAM, but it’s reassuring to know that the option to add more memory is available. This is especially important when it comes to running high-stress applications such as games.

Biostar Motherboard for Visionman BareboneThe Biostar Tforce TF7025-M2 motherboard also features integrated VGA and DVI ports, 8 channel high-definition audio, LAN ports and SATA support. It is also capable of supporting Windows Vista Premium, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray and HDCP. The motherboard’s extensive feature set maximizes the options you have when upgrading.

Unlike other barebones packages, the Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Barebone offers Nvidia graphics right out of the box. The motherboard supports the PCI-e x16/x1 configuration, so when the time comes to upgrade to a more powerful video solution, you’ll be able to pick from the latest and most powerful models of graphics cards.

AMD Athlon CPU that comes with Visionman Gaming BareboneThe brains of the Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Barebone is the dual-core AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ CPU which is a 64-bit processor designed to deliver high levels of performance. With this outstanding CPU, games and other demanding applications can run smoothly. High-frame rates and hiccup-free gaming is possible thanks to the powerful capabilities of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+.

Other than the powerful CPU, the competent motherboard and the generous amount of RAM the system comes with, the Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Chassis also has value-added features that make this package truly remarkable. Visionman offers first-rate customer support and a 12-month parts and labor warranty ensuring that you won’t get left out in the cold in case a problem rises. Rounding out this package is the 22-in-1 media card reader that supports many of the common formats in use today.

All things considered, with the Visionman AMD64 X2 6000 Gaming Barebone, you’re but one step away from creating the ultimate PC.
