Riotoro CR1280 Prism Review

Riotoro CR1280 Prism Review  

Introduction

We’ll forgive you if you’ve never heard of Riotoro before now, as until very recently neither had we.  If you delve beneath the surface you’ll discover that they’ve been around in the states for a while, but are now starting to branch out into other markets, including the UK market, which for us consumers is excellent news as more choice is always welcome, especially as it stimulates innovation and creates competitive pricing.  So, what of the new CR1280 Prism then?  Well the “Prism” as you might have guessed alludes to the case having full 256 colour RGB control built into the hardware.  It’s also a big bugger, with full E-ATX support, so we’re anticipating epic water cooling credentials are on the cards.  Aside from that were keeping our minds open but if we’re honest, hoping for greatness.  For the rest of the skinny, best we have a look at the Full Technical Specification
