The Thermaltake V250 TG ARGB chassis offers a clean and solid option for the mainstream gamer and enthusiast. It has plenty of pre-installed fans and support for both air and liquid cooling, as well as a little bit of bling with ARGB intake fans and the glass side panel.

exactly. its an ok case for a low to mid-tier build that won't heat up because of its low power, but for anything more, this case seems pretty useless.

I hope we will start to see rejection of these hot aquarium case designs.

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I sound like a broken record but that's because case manufacturers are consistently terrible.

Here we have another rubbish case that's all about letting LED's shine through glass instead of letting cool air in and hot air out.

Hard pass.
Also, Thermaltake - so hard pass again.
No, two hard passes do not cancel each other out....

Agreed. It makes no sense at all to put a glass panel in front of a fan.

FYI, in the article it postulates that the "LED OUT" connector on the fan hub PCB that comes with the case is a Thermaltake proprietary connector, but, at least to me, from the one close up picture in the article it looks as though it's a generic 3 pin JST connector (the connector that come on all generic addressable LED strips... Gigabyte's motherboards actually have an addressable header that uses this LED industry standard JST connector as well, and kudos to them for not using that unnecessary "4 minus 1 = 3 pin" addressable connecter/header that Asus introduced and nearly every other mobo manufacturer copied for no discernable reason).

Anyway, I can see the three pins/leads going into the connector from the PCB and the female housing of the connector has a square cutout for the small retaining clip on the male JST connector, so it looks like that to me, but I could be wrong as I haven't seen it in person like the author.

This case was sent to me for 54.99, I originally bought the Thermaltake Versa H18, for 54.99, that's good value for this case.:roll:
