    2011 is a whole new year for Thermaltake Group to step forward from a leading DIY brand name to a cultural brand for the enjoyment of entertainment, e-Sports, technology and life style. To present a brand new Thermaltake Group to all gamers and users, Thermaltake launches brand new e-sports chassis , Chaser MKΙ,with adorable breathing light, strong streamline body and all black coating, including the exterior and interior and in combination with blue elements which lends it a very dynamic and powerful look. Chaser MKΙ,besides the excellent e-sports -concept-design appearance , also has enormous space inside.

    Being the industry-leading brand in PC thermal management, Thermaltake has built a perfect cooling system into this brand new series of chassis. With the popularity of performance water-cooling solution for PCs, a true gaming chassis of course has to over this upgrade bath as well. Water-cooling ready design allows users to integrate 240mm liquid cooling system and the top fan can be easily removed and the water-cooling radiator can be quickly installed. Liquid cooling hose holes in the back also warrant for the installation of external liquid cooling systems. Furthermore, its large space is suitable for up to 18cm CPU cooler and two colorshift 200mm fans and an additional 140mm TurboFan is also embedded; along with the 35mm heightened footstands enhance excellent intake airflow.

Moreover, innovative 5.25” & 3.5” tool-free device with HDD anti-vibration mechanism makes installation and removal of 3.5” HDDs and 2.5” SSDs a child’s play. Its cable management improves airflow and ventilation and also makes the system organized for future upgrades. As an extra large mid tower case, Chaser MKΙsupports VGA up to 33cm as well.

    You know what is up with companies making cases that look like they would only be liked if you were 12.
    What ever happened to the elegant non-plastic look. I mean seriously.... it looks like case manufacturers are doing the same thing that car manufacturers were doing a few years ago. Just hanging hanging more plastic crap off the chassis. Why not worry about functionality instead of how much plastic crap you can hang on one case.

    This one looks like a design we have all seen before. It looks and acts just like the Haf X but again with more plastic crap on it.

    I'm getting a haf x and starcraft/deadspace vibe from it. Not my style but looks to be a solid case if the price is right.

    I'm going to get the Armor A60 this summer before it warms up to much.
    Then try and get my 1090T stable and cool at 4.0GHz or close. Running
    at 26c idle with no case fan but open in a cheap ass Antec razor wire case,
    and a Thermaltake Frio at 3.5.

    Really not liking the rising popularity of the cheap toy lasergun aesthetic. Lets get some dignity back please.

    Reading the marketing pitch makes me want to vomit. Is it translated Chinese?

    I hadn't bothered to read it until you mentioned it, but I think you're right.

    Too plasticky and toyish. Reminiscent of early year 2000 era cases.. like those Viper pc chassis complete with blue ccfl and blue led fans.

    Kudos to the internal 240 rad though.. shouldve made it 360 capable though.

    front looks like a Raven from Silverstone
    side looks like a HAF from Coolermaster
    top looks like a Phantom from NZXT

    Yep which is why I like the A60. Just a plain case with nice lines. Has the Blue fans , but not worried about that it won't even be seen most of the time. I do kind of like how this case sits up off the floor though.

    Even the A60 is too much for me. In fact, I'm sick of my original Armor. My favorite cases right now, as far as looks go, are probably the most "boring" to a lot of people; Lian Li, Corsair Obsidian series, NZXT H2, Fractal Design, etc. I think I'm just attracted to simple, unadorned, metal boxes.

    I'll stick with my CM 690 II. It's no-nonsense and has a smooth, simplistic look. This thing looks like someone tried to stick as much plastic as possible on a chassis and market it as the "industry leader." I'm not impressed.

    Although the look of this case is not my cup of tea....I can see a large group of 13-16 aged kids loving this transformer looking case!
