5 out of 5 eggsFANTASTIC

Pros: Cable management, rock solid drivebays(not the cheezy bendy plastic ones), tons of room, airflow, looks, fans included, 140mm rear fan and easy to build in. Fans move a lot of air and are not that loud at all.

Cons: The power button could use some love and I wish it came with 4 of the pre-wired color changing 200mm fans. I wish the trim color was optional.

Other Thoughts: I love this case. Lately, I've been building lots of PCs for frirneds and family. I've built in other cases such as, corsair, thermaltake,fractal, coolermaster, rosewill and some mini generic cases.

Most of the new cases, even the corsair have those flimsy drive bay mounts and just feel cheap. The fractal was ok but, still not as solid as this case. This might be the last standing item thermaltake has to offer that resembles their quality of old. If your doing a build that needs lots of room, airflow and quality, I Promise, this is the case!!!

5 out of 5 eggsCase for my 1st Build

Pros: I decided to build my own PC since it was time to upgrade my desktop. The first item I needed was a nice full size ATX case and there are quite a few on the market to choose from. I looked at a lot of cases and read many reviews and my choice came down to the Thermaltake Chaser MK-I. I wanted plenty of room for expansion and a good lay out and that's what I got with this case. It came with fans with LED lights if you like that sort of thing or you can turn them off if you wish. I can't find a thing to complain about with this case and I like the looks, the quality, and the room for expansion. I'm very pleased with it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone who's undecided like I was and are looking to build a new computer.

3 out of 5 eggsFaulty Fan Controller

Pros: Huge, great system for HDD and drives for the drive bays. Very spacious and very customizable.

Cons: Fan controller will not work. I have done everything top my knowledge to try to fix it, but the controller just will not work.

Other Thoughts: This is great case and I recommend it. If only they made the controller better.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

If the fan controller is powered by the peripheral connector from your PSU and the controller is not functioning, it may need to be replaced.
Please contact Customer Support at your earliest convenience to troubleshoot your fan controller.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

Pros: My first tool-less case and I'm loving it. More than enough room for a Cooler master hyper 212 Evo. Very nice cable management system and dust filters. Upgraded from a Antec 900...was going to get the Antec 1200 but decided on this one because of the tool-less feature that the 1200 doesn't have and the fact that the dust filters are so easy to get to and change as opposed to the Antec 1200. I couldn't be happier with my selection.

Cons: It wasn't cheaper.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally, enough room

Pros: Plenty of room for the 11.5" video card without compromising RAM slots, plenty of expansion for fans, lots of drive space, plenty of room for cabling on backside of motherboard, top load SATA slot, lots of USB 3 ports, color changing lights (which my 5 year old son LOVES).

Cons: Power button a bit loose, doesn't feel as solid as the rest of the case; no motherboard tray, no WiFi built in

I knew about the lack of a mobo tray and WiFi going in, so that's okay and I didn't deduct because of them. I'd read about the power button issue, but thought it may have been a fluke.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

Pros: Mesh so it takes air in very well. Mostly metal case, easy bay clips, built in usb 3.0, removeable filter for front and bottom of case.

Cons: Mesh.. case gets dusty rather easy because of it.

Other Thoughts: Only complaint that i see for me personally would be that only my first bay drive actually clicks in the others seem to move around and not lock. Otherwise this case is amazing.

Pros: Alot of room for my parts, easy to clean the vents, Not heavy at all. Very durable and looks edgy without going overboard. Love the color changes you can do without redo a new fan.
Very solid

5 out of 5 eggsBest case I've ever owned

Pros: Quiet
Superior cooling
Excellent cable management
Server-style lever lock drive trays
Quick-lock and easy-release 5 1/4" bays

Cons: It's not cheaper?

Other Thoughts: This is honestly the best case I've ever owned, and I've owned several. I view a case as an investment; a good case will last for many years and many builds. My last Thermaltake case lasted me 9 years; a case from 2005 cooled sufficiently well to handle a GeForce GTX 480 and an AMD 8350. This case is, likewise, excellent. I only upgraded because I upgraded to a GeForce 980, and I was concerned about cooling.

This case was, by far, the easiest build I've ever done. The tolerances are incredibly tight. The motherboard lined up perfectly, with no need to push and finagle it to get the screw holes to align. The cable routing is superb; I've never done a cleaner build. Air flows freely through the chassis, with no obstructions. The drive trays are server-style, with a lever locking system. Instead of bending them to remove the drives like in more cheaply-built cases, there are removable tabs at the sides that retain them. This means they won't break over years of use. My DVD drive slid right in and locked by itself, completely flush. Releasing it is as simple as pulling a lever.

One thing you should always look for in a case is side air vents. This is crucial, because it allows fresh air to be drawn in directly above your video card and other components. Placing the case under negative pressure (more fans going out than in) will passively draw air in through these vents, without the need for an extra fan. The end result is far better cooling than even the best ventless cases. The Chaser G1 has excellent side vents, and more than sufficient exhaust fans to make this scheme work.

Possibly my one concern is that the hard drive dock and eSATA ports are intended to connect to a standard motherboard SATA port. This is potentially problematic, because many motherboard SATA controllers do not have hot-swap capability. This can be overcome with an adapter cable if your motherboard has eSATA ports, but you should be cautious about simply plugging in a drive while the system is running.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case!

Pros: Very spacious, many places to put fans, space to place a large radiator for water cooling at top of case, the feet at the bottom keep the case a couple of inches off the carpet to provide better airflow

Cons: The power button is a little wiggly and cheap feeling, but definitely not a deal breaker by any means.

Other Thoughts: This was the first time I've ever attempted to build a PC, and I couldn't be happier with this case. It was an absolute pleasure to work in, and I'd definitely recommend anyone, regardless of PC-building experience, to dive headfirst into this beast of a case; you won't regret it. You'll never feel like you're working in a cramped space.

In case anyone is interested. I've chosen the Asrock Extreme 6 motherboard and blue G.Skill Ripjaws 1300 (2x8GB) Ram, and the colors of these mesh well with the case (light blue). The Asrock Extreme 6 motherboard is amazing for the price by the way, and there is currently a rebate and 10 dollar off promotion if anyone's interested. It was rated best Z97 motherboard for the money by Tom's Hardware in 2014.
