Thermaltake Announces X Comfort Air Gaming Chair With Active Cooling

So yes, Thermaltake is paying attention to consumers from tropical and desert climates all over the world with its latest gaming chair. The X Comfort Air is a new gaming chair that sports active cooling, whether your environment requires it, or you're just going through a really aberrant, hot day. The cooling system leverages four high-pressure fans, embedded in the base of the chair (perforated faux-leather that permits airflow from the three-speed fans.) Thermaltake claimed that the system can cool the seat by between 0.6ºC and 1.5ºC. The noise level of the fans is stated as 32 DB(A), but Thermaltake didn't specify the correlating fan speed for this.
Like all other Thermaltake gaming chairs, the Comfort X Air chair features adjustments such as height, back angle, rocking tilt, tilt lock, and four-way armrests. Basic construction points include an aluminum frame, padding made from 75 kg/m3 foam, a class-4 gas piston, and an aluminum five-spoke base with three-inch casters. The X Comfort Air gaming chair is available in red or black options, both going for $500. For that pricing, one would expect to have heated seats as well.

Too bad they didn't think it through and just made it out of strong mesh material.

I was wondering when we'd see this. It does make a big difference in cars (especially in AU summers). Though at that price I'd consider a Herman Miller office chair.

A whole 1.5 degrees!

Considering the stupid amounts of money they'll likely charge for this tat, you're better off investing in something that can make a real difference... like an air conditioner.

I'm sure Thermaltake will also be the first to introduce RGB LEDs on gaming chairs, so that you can show that you are the most tasteless of your zero friends.

That was the first thing that came to my mind. All that's missing is a reverse mode for fans, and a carbon filter. :roll:

Wouldn't it be easier to create a mesh seat with fans underneath? I have a chair with full mesh back support and it's impossible to sweat on the back and it doesn't even have any fans. If seating part would be the same, problem solved. But it wouldn't be so soft and comfy, that's for sure...

When you've finally assembled that silent gaming rig, and you can hear your chair fans instead. Good times

Honestly we need a bizarre newspost section for these kinds of releases. PC gaming has gone crazy

I knew you guys would make jokes about this. But this is more important than what you think. I´m glad you live in not so hot countries. Try to sit on the chair with 35º C every day. Trust me, it sucks.

jokes apart, it will be really useful for people living in tropics or hot desert regions. In summers I cannot stay seated in my PC chair for more than a few minutes and having a fan blowing air will be certainly helpful.

A chair with a CFM airflow metric. Something I though I would never see.
