    Thermaltake is one of the companies always showing a lot of new stuff at shows. Let's start with their coolers. The first, very interesting looking unit is the "Rotation", which uses a radial fan in the center, with some heatpipes to cool the CPU. The second looks much like a butterfly is called the "TMG IA1" and uses 8 heatpipes in combination with a 120 mm fan. The two new graphic card coolers. The first is called the "SOrb" and comes with active cooling, while the second does not seem to be finished yet, as it does not have a name. A budget CPU cooler right next to it is currently simply labeled as "Heatpipe Value Downward Flow".

    Their newest chassis is called Spedo. We already had a look at it behind closed doors at CeBIT, at which point there were two versions (full and mid tower). Seems like only the full tower made it into production. It has removable hard drive trays, the interior layout is placed in compartements and there are a lot of possibilities for 120 mm fans to be used.

    Thermaltake is also expanding their water cooling unit with a dual 120 mm radiatior. A plastic construction makes it possible to use the unit on a mid-tower.

    The new Luxa line of HTPC cases is intended for luxury homes. There is no price set on these, but expect them to burn a deep hole into your wallet. The large unit for ATX boards is called Luxa 300. This one can be had with a 7 inch LCD or a graphical VFD - both supplied by Soundgraph. The smaller one - the Luxa 100 is intended for ITX and also features the graphical VFD. This unit uses a slimline optical drive.

    nice Thermaltake case alot of people including my self think they make the best hard drive cages, they also have alot of intuitive design aspects. looks like they are taking a page out of Cooler Master, about time they drop the hardcore aesthetics in favor of a sleeker look.

    Thanks Dark :)

    despite my hatred of thermaltake fans, i agree with christine - they do make decent hard drive cages (i prefer coolermaster however :p )

    so long as these coolers arent screamingly loud, they should be quite decent.

    I love Thermaltake. The only thing of theirs I will not buy are their water cooling parts. I hear nothing but bad things about their kits.

    The HTPC cases look like fancy Microwaves.

    My Xaser's functionality is off the charts but its looks are something else. Its nice to see they are finally going to make a FT that doesn't look like its a part of some alien craft :p

    Thermaltake has always had hardcore aesthetics, the whole asian contour style.

    Wow, I really like that Luxa 300. I imagine its going to be like a 500 dollar case though. That Sorb Cooler looks neat as does their Rotation. Cant wait for them to go out and we get some reviews.

    I like it, sleek but not over the top like some of their products. Thermaltake often had excessively riced designs.

    The TMG IA1 cooler looks suspiciously like ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120.:shadedshu
