"Ideas originate from humanity, realizing ideas is our belief."
Kenny Lin, Thermaltake CEO.
“Thermaltake Technology Co., Ltd. started its core business based on our extensive knowledge of PC thermal management during the era where the area of performance CPU cooling was only exclusive for "overclockers" or PC enthusiasts. With the company's initial launch of Orb coolers, it created waves of shocks and appraisals throughout the gaming and overclocking communities. Thermaltake quickly became the name gamers turn to when they need high-end and reliable thermal solutions.
With company's core business of CPU cooling still growing at a vast rate, Thermaltake made another grand entry to the PC chassis industry.
To date, Thermaltake has always been considered as the pioneering company that revolutionized the PC chassis industry with Xaser series enclosures. The typical and traditional beige and plastic front panel design was outdone by Xaser series chassis's atypical gaming red and aluminium front panel. It was also the first enclosure available to public with Hardcano unti which provided users full control over computer's thermal management system.
Today, Thermaltake has grown into a world-class company with state-of-the-art testing and R&D facility based in Taiwan along with 60+ engineers and ID team covering each application segment such as Liquid Cooling, Air Cooling, PC Enclosure and Power Supply for main-stream users, high-end solutions, system integrators and industrial applications; thus achieve Thermaltake's company motto, " COOLall YOUR LIFE " ! ”
Thermaltake has this to say about their new Xaser VI VG400LBWS Case: “The lightweight aluminum and composite structure of Xaser XI is unique to Thermaltake. It is the special combination of materials that created the streamline appearance and solid construction for both style and durability. With harmonious proportions, taut surfacing and thorough attention to the details, Xaser VI has been born to make their owners proud. Apart from the external beauty and elegance, you will be equally impressed by its inner structure with stunning blend of innovation and tradition. Excellent ventilation and optimized system airflow is offered by the entirely metal grilled body and the well organized fan cooling system that manage CPU, VGA and HDD thermal independently.”
The Xaser series apparently has a quite good reputation as far as cases go, so it was with intrigue (and a little bit of excitement) that I received the new Xaser VI to review.
The model that I shall be looking at today is the VG400LBWS, or more specifically the ‘Xaser VI Super Tower Black with Transparent Side Window With Embedded Liquid Cooling’. Yeah, that’s quite a mouthful; but Thermaltake have made 8 variations of this same model case, so they have to distinguish between them properly somehow!
Well let’s see just what we’re dealing with then…
