SlashGear Review – Ultra Products m998 Mid-Tower ATX Case

SlashGear Review – Ultra Products m998 Mid-Tower ATX Case

Last week I received an Ultra Products m998 Mid-Tower ATX Case for review. I love new PC cases, and have never used one from Ultra before, so I was excited to test it out. Before getting into the review, I'd like to mention that I am almost obsessive about my cable management (a couple of years as a networking admin will do that to you). So I generally take my sweet time and try to find creative ways to position the cables neatly out of the way without the use of such semi-permanent tools like zip ties. Enough about me though, on to the review!

If you're a Wii owner and picked up a copy of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, you probably noticed that the sound output options weren't exactly up to snuff. If that's the case, you likely sent off your disc and were forced to be without your game for much longer than you'd like. Don't worry though, Activision has your back, as you'll be getting something extra special with your disc.

How many of you are stoaked about the Grand Theft Auto IV release next month.

Microsoft finally makes things right with gamer

Microsoft finally makes things right with gamer

I'm sure that you all remember the story from a few weeks ago about the gamer that had his prized Xbox 360 scrubbed clean at a repair depot. The guy had collected signatures and artwork from a number of important people in the gaming industry, and then had it scrubbed clean by a technician. Bungie was more than happy to hook the guy up with some cool swag, however, Microsoft had been strangely quiet on the matter. Until now that is.
