EVGA’s upcoming DG-8 Gaming Case looks like a cool wall oven

EVGA DG-87 Gaming Case Overview - Now Available for Preorder!
Computer cases often fall into one of two categories: general or personal. That is, either you’ve opted for a case that reflects your interests or you don’t give a damn what your computer looks like. But if you’re looking for a hearth design, there aren’t many available. EVGA’s upcoming gaming computer case could help fill that void, as its DG-8 Gaming Cases series looks just like a wall oven.

The case has more than just the exterior design going for it, though. Unlike the premise of a roasted computer, this case features a dedicated cooling path for graphics cards which should help if you decide to push your computer to the limits. The cooler your computer, the more it’s able to push that precious hardware. In case the path cooling path isn’t enough, there’s always water cooling. The case supports dual 420 or 360mm radiators, and there’s a special mounting reservoir section already in place. A built-in fan controller can be used to raise or lower the temperature, and you can take a peek to see the current temperature inside the case. Fan filters supposedly keep the computer dust free and can be removed for cleaning.

Cable management can be a hell as well, but this case features dedicated cable management cutout points to reduce the wiring mess you usually keep locked away and hidden from sight.

Of particular interest to computer enthusiasts could be the K-Boost Button. EVGA says it boosts both your GPU and CPU clocks at the push of a button, but exact details on how far that pushing goes is uncertain.

The front and top of the case features reset buttons and USB 2.0 ports as well as front facing USB 3.1 Type-C and HDMI ports. Most interesting of these features is the front facing HDMI port that the company says works well for VR.

If the design has you intrigued but confused, you can simply flip a switch and remove the front door. Ergonomics appear to have been an important factor in the design.

There’s no shortage of space in the DG-8, with support for up to eight 140 or 120mm fans as well as 12 SSD or HDD. For anyone interested in customizing their desktop setup some more, and have some extra cash to spare, the DG-8 seems to make a compelling case.

The DG-8 is available for pre-order now via EVGA’s website and is set to launch this August. Pre-orders come with a hefty discount.  It will come in four different models, starting with the DG-84 at $150 ($100 on pre-order), followed by the DG-85 at $170 ($120 on pre-order), the DG-86 at $200 ($150 on pre-order), and finally the DG-87 at $230 ($180 on pre-order).

EVGA, a company known primarily for its graphics cards, revealed at CES that it was working on its first laptop, the SC17. An enthusiast machine by nature, the it bears a wealth of high-end internal components as well as some built-in overclocking utilities to push them even further.

On the outside, the SC17 is sleek and powerful looking thanks to its aluminum unibody chassis that's only an inch thick at the thickest area, but its arguably more reminiscent of a Lenovo workstation notebook than a gaming one.

EVGA might be known mostly for its internal components, but at this year's CES it's expanding out of its comfort zone and launching not only a high-end gaming laptop, but a brand new case design, too. Both offer something interesting for gamers, and like other EVGA products, certainly look the part.

The notebook, known as the SC-17, is EVGA's first attempt at building a gaming notebook, but it's an impressive piece of kit. With a display that measures in at 17 inches, it's a compact 1.05 inches thick and weighs in at just 8.5 pounds. That's actually not bad for a power gaming rig.

Today EVGA announced its plans to move forward with a new variant of the GTX 960, dubbed the SuperSC, that's been doubled up with 4GB of DDR5 RAM and a refreshed cooling system that should be able to handle anything that 4K gaming enthusiasts have to throw at it.

Along with the boost in memory, EVGA says the 4GB GTX 960 will come equipped with its ACX 2.0+ custom cooling system. The upgrade will supposedly result in a quieter card that can be overclocked to speeds beyond the stock 1,127MHz factory rating, without melting any components when the firefights really start to pick up during intense frag sessions online and off. EVGA says the base clock will be 1,279MHz, with a maximum boost clock of 1,342MHz.
