I paid a quick fire visit to the Thermaltake HQ in Taiwan today and they set me loose in their showroom. With lots of new goodies to take pictures of and show you, I’ll start with the two new cases due out in October; the Xaser Vi & Armor+, both of which are designed for the extreme enthusiast who loves a lot of room in the case.
In fact they're designed with water cooling in mind and in particular, a specialized new water cooling kit that will take up three of your 5.25 drive bays. The watercooling kit is called the Bigwater 760i –not unlike the BMW 7 series initials.
Both chassis have a “hood/bonnet” on the top of the case that can slide away so you can top up your coolant without taking apart your entire rig. Not a unique idea, since cars have been using it for ages, but certainly unique for a PC chassis.
The cases have 7x 5.25” drive bays and 7x 3.5” HDD bays, all of them using patented tool-less clips. Two of the 3.5” HDD bays are removable and you can install fans at the bottom of the case to help cool these drives. All around a very cool piece of work.
