Computer Chassis Showcase Part Two: Mini Towers Computers

Add a comment Published in Silverstone on 16 September 2014, 16:18 by Andi

Last week we looked at a range of the most common computer case – the Mid Tower. Now we're back with a whole range of cases that pack a whole lot into a little space. We're talking of course, about the Mini Tower.

Mini towers are great for their compact nature and portability. You'll lose out on some internal space for additional drives, and you won't be mounting dual graphics cards in a mini tower, however you've still got a number of applications for a PC built in one.

Listed below are 4 of the coolest Mini Towers we have, so be sure to check them out!

SilverStone DS380B Mini-ITX Case

From the premium brushed aluminium door to the LED indicators with adjustable brightness, it's clear from the start that this is a case that won't draw too much attention to itself, but looks brilliant when it does.

You'll be hard pressed to run out of storage, with support for up to 12 drives – 8 of which can be changed out in a flash with the case's hot-swappable feature. Perfect for a media centre that you want to run offline – store all your media locally and even include a disc drive for your physical formats.

'Hesitant Alien' Releasing next Friday the 26th of September! Music

Add a comment Published in Gerard Way and Hesitant Alien on 16 September 2014, 10:31 by Dan

Former My Chemical Romance frontman, Gerard Way is all set to release his debut solo album Hesitant Alien next Friday!

Working with producer Doug McKean, Way knew immediately what he wanted Hesitant Alien to sound like. “I wanted to make the small things sound big” he says. “My intention was to make 100 percent uncompromised art, using the currently least radio-friendly instrument, the guitar. I knew there would be lots of fuzz pedals. I knew I would play Fender instruments. I knew I would look at who my guitar heroes were in art school, Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein, and I drew a lot of influence from shoe-gaze and Britpop. I want the record to sonically galvanize people.”

Swing by and Pre-order Hesitant Alien today!

'The Silkworm' Competition! Crime and mystery from J.K. Rowling's pen-name Books

Add a comment Published on 15 September 2014, 16:36 by Michael

There, I said it. Robert Galbraith is the nom de plume of none other than J. K. Rowling.

Thankfully, even with that cat out of the bag, there is more than enough mystery and intrigue in the pages of The Silkworm.

We have four copies of the fantastically twisty The Silkworm to give away. Grabbing your copy is easy! Just head over to our Mighty Ape Books Facebook page, give us a like and leave a comment to let me know what your pen name would be!

Personally, I'm going with Viggo Z. Sapolsky as a nod to a couple of my favourite writers and, of course, my cat.
