Not only style and personality but an exceptional combination of cooling, performance, versatility, and adaptability to any configuration unite in this amazing chassis. Gaming purists are assured true enjoyment while in or out of the game.

E-Sport Design

Gaze into its black metal mesh, highlighted with blue fluorescent stripes on the front panel, combined with a windowed side panel - it'll be hard to draw your attention away from it!

 

Easy Hot-Swap

Top-mounted 2.5” or 3.5” HDD docking station enables blazing fast file transfer and effortless hot-swap drive replacement.

Supreme
Ventilation

This chassis comes with a 120mm rear fan, three large 200mm fans located at front, top, and side, and blue LEDs preinstalled for extreme airflow and optimal system cooling. In order to keep the interior dust-free, all intake vents come with dust protection, including a removable filter at the bottom of the chassis.

Innovative tool-less design

Innovative 5.25” & 3.5” tool-free drive bay design minimizes the installation of ODD, HDD, and SSD devices for extreme expandability.

Convenient Support

Two retained holes with rubber grommets, five retained holes for advanced cable management, and one large CPU cut-out simplify CPU cooler installation

High-end Complete System on the go

Easily build a complete high end water cooled set-up with a 240mm radiator liquid cooling system, even with an extra long graphics card. Protect your hardware while increasing your CPU’s overclocking potential - but most importantly, get outstanding cooling efficiency throughout the entire case.

Stress-free Cable Management

Inside, you'll find a wide cable-routing gap for easy cable management and hiding of cables behind the motherboard tray, ensuring accessibility for future upgrades, reducing wiring tangles, and improving airflow and dust management.

4 out of 5 eggsPlenty of space, well thought out design

Pros: * Supports liquid cooling, just remember it is a 240 mm radiator. If you buy a 280 mm radiator, it will not fit.
* Cable management system is well thought out, back side of motherboard tray has loops for you to loop your zip ties through to keep the cables organized.
* Opening behind the motherboard CPU for over-sized heat sink backing.
* External drive docking slot is super convenient
* Top has a little tray behind the docking slot for you to put stuff on.

Cons: * "Innovative tool-less design": LIES! You still need a screw driver to put in screws for your internal HDDs on to the internal trays.
* Front panel for drive bays (CD/DVD/BD drives) require just a tad more pinching effort than you would expect for removal.
* The internal HDD drives face towards the motherboard base side (right), and routing the SATA and power cables is a bit cramped. If your cables have large plugs (or does not have the L shaped plugs), it may be an issue.

Other Thoughts: The fans run quiet, and if you use liquid cooling for your CPU, runs quieter.

Case will ONLY (perfectly) fit a 240 mm radiator for liquid cooling at the top. such as a CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i water cooler (or a H105, which I got). Will not fit any other size radiator, a 280 mm will bump up against the back or front side with almost no space for hoses; while a smaller one will have some mounting offset bumped up against other parts of the case. Tried to mount a CORSAIR single fan radiator to the rear chassis area, and it is EXTREMELY tight with a slight screw hole offset. Workable, but not "proper" fit for those people with OCD about their water cooling systems.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks even better in person

Pros: More external bays than it says
Rear expansion slot covers are held in with screws, not a break out tab.
Hot Swap hard drive bay
Lots of room for fans
Has room to hide water coolers
Very eye pleasing
Quiet fans
Comes with all the screws you will ever need, black to match the case
Included 5.25 bay to 3.5 bay conversion piece

Cons: The front and top pop off fairly easy
The power and reset button don't always line up correctly
The rubber grommets feel very cheap
Very little room for cable management behind motherboard tray
The quick disconnect mechanisms on the front external bays don't always stay locked

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a Great case. I strongly recommend it. There are two air filters, one on top of the case and one on the bottom. The bottom one is removable the top one is not. I researched a question I had about this case forever and could not find an answer. Come to find out everywhere I looked lied. So I will answer it just in case anybody else has the same question. This Case has 4 External Front bays. 3 that are 5.25 and 1 that is 3.5. I wish I could have known this before I bought the case, rather than just hoping.

5 out of 5 eggsTHIS IS A GOOD AND NICE LOOKING CASE.

Pros: THE CASE CAME TO ME WITH SHIPPING DAMAGE. CONTACTED THEMALTAKE AND WAS ABLE TO GET THE PROBLEM
FIXED BY GETTING ANOTHER SIDE PANEL W/CLEAR PANEL CHEAP. MY GRANDDAUGHTER LOVES IT.

Cons: OTHER THAN SHIPPING DAMAGE THIS CASE IS GREAT, IT HAS ALL THE ROOM I NEEDED TO PREFORM CABLE MANAGEMENT
AND NOW A PERFECT SIDE WINDOW TO SEE IT ALL.

Other Thoughts: I LOOKED AT MANY CASES AND I AND MY GRANDDAUGHTER REALY LOVE HOW IT TURNED OUT.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is the case you want

Pros: Case has a ton of room of anything and everything. Big areas for water cooling, graphics, HDD.. Everythjng. It feels amazing! The looks are great. If you like the design.. BUY IT!

Cons: Not really a con, but the side panel with the window has about 1/16 of an inch of play, (meaning it just slightly wiggles when you push on it).

Other than that , nothing at all.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case if you have a big graphics card, or just want room in your case.

My temps are are:
Cpu 30c idle
Gpu is more or less the same

5 out of 5 eggsA really nice quality case.

Pros: It's big, looks nice. All of the fans are quality parts. It handles dust well, easy to clean. Allows you to organize cords.

Quick HDD expansion on the top of the case.

It's one of the best cases i'v owned, great for the price.

Cons: None that i'v seen yet.

5 out of 5 eggsThis case is awesome

Pros: This case has the old school feel of a very large case with front bays. I was able to add and SD card reader in a 3.5inch bay. As for cooling its amazing. I got alot in here and plan to add more. The added top loader for SSD/HHD is great for people that want to repair stuff from home. Plenty of USB and features.

Cons: The only draw back is if your planning on just doing a couple of SSDs you will have to use the bays provided. You cant mount them in the rear. Also you can't remove the front bays. So if you want complete water cooling this probably isn't the case for you.

Other Thoughts: I am running:
Xeon 1231v3 w/arctic 11 cooler
asrock z87 fatal1ty pro
16gb ram
2x R9 280 in crossfire
1tb hard drive, bluray drive, and sd card reader
EVGA 750watt Gold rated PSU
This case has kept everything running at optimal speeds, Stock case cooling and everything is exactly how i want it.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic looking case

Pros: Plenty of room for expansion
Cable routing behind the MOBO
Great placement of the Power/Reset buttons and USB Ports on top/front of case
Love the integrated place to put extra parts on top

Cons: no adapters included to make the existing 5.25" bay's work for 2.5" or 3.5"
The front "Blue" color is plastic and relies on the fan lights to make it glow, this causes them to light up unevenly as this case has a front fan at the bottom but not the top.
The front fan died after 2 days and will not turn back on
the large side fan is wobbling slightly which is causing a slight clicking sound.

Other Thoughts: I really like the case and the Thermaltake brand but I expected better craftsmanship for a $120 case, I did not expect this to make any unusal noises out of the box other than normal fan sounds and I had hoped that nothing would be DOA. Now to get them to send me two new fans...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: -Tons of space to work in
-Supports huge GPUs and everything else like that
-Easy to clean PSU filter
-The tray on the top is a great clutter catcher
-Top HDD mount is so convenient

Cons: This case is HEAVY. I knew this going in, and when I bought the case, I rarely left my house and so I figured the more space, the better. Here I am, nearly 2 years later, and I take this thing to LAN parties almost weekly. Lugging around a 55 pound PC when you're a lanky lad is a challenge. Aside from that, even with the raised back panel it's kinda hard to get the back panel to go on if your cables aren't flat like on a Corsair PSU.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this case for almost 2 years, and while I've really loved it, I would've gone with something else if I'd known how often I'd be moving it around in the future. That's my fault though, and as a stationary full-tower case, this case has a lot of perks. My only real complaint is that the side window is pretty limited. But the giant fan on the side has my GPU running at some pretty nice temps, so I can't complain.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Lightweight case for full ATX tower

-Beautiful design

-Cable management was very easy

-Great air flow

Cons: -Box came in heavily damaged with tears, but the case itself was safe.

-The exhaust fan makes a very loud noise from time to time, I have to slap the rear end of the case in order for it to stop.
