When money's no object, a $300 computer case is totally reasonable. But if you're on a budget, a cheaper enclosure frees up funds that can be better spent on other parts of the build, like a beefier graphics card, faster processor, more RAM, a solid state drive, or whatever. With that in mind, Thermaltake is positioning its new Armor Revo Gene as a "mainstream gaming chassis."
Ron Lee Christianson's known in modderati circles for the outstanding attention to detail in his case mods, and his latest project is no different: the Iron Man PC blows our mind. Commissioned by Thermaltake and built with Thermaltake's new Armor Revo case -- though you'd never know it just by looking at it -- this kick ass case contains the extra touches that make a difference, such as a replica of Iron Man's chest-bound Arc Reactor and a front-facing copy of Iron Man's helm that actually opens and closes. We spoke with Ron about the Iron Man mod and other things over the weekend.
If your hot and heavy Diablo 3 sessions lead to sweaty palms and finger slippage, worry not: help is on the way courtesy of Thermaltake. Today, the company's Tt ESports division announced the Black Element Cyclone Edition mouse, which is an enhanced version of the basic Black Element mouse, complete with a detachable 6,000 RPM fan attached to cool down your overheated digits. No, really!
Depending on how you look at things, the power supply is arguably the most important component in a build, and is at least one of the most underrated. Thermaltake over the years has worked hard to be known as one of a handful of reliable PSU brands, and its Toughpower and Smart Series are generally well received around the Web. Today both of those lines are expanding with new wattage options.
The overclocking world caught its first glimpse of Thermaltake's Frio Extreme air cooler back in June when it was unveiled at the Computex convention in Taiwan. Why it took so long to officially launch is anyone's guess, but it's here now and ready to help overclockers push the limits of their parts with a cooling capacity of up to 250W and support for both AMD and Intel platforms.
Anyone who lives in one of the states hit by snow last night (hello Michigan) need not be reminded that winter is here. Be that as it may, Thermaltake has chosen to embrace the cold season rather than be a grump about it with its Commander MS-I Snow Edition computer case. That's really Thermaltake's fancy pants way of saying it gave the Commander MS-I a white themed makeover.
MSI is banking on you needing a new CPU cooler when you upgrade your platform to Intel's LGA 2011-based Sandy Bridge-E platform, and Thermaltake knows you'll need a new motherboard. With that in mind, these two new BFFs hooked up to bundle MSI's X79A-GD65 (8D) motherboard with Thermaltake's Frio Advanced CPU cooler in a single package.
The wise guys and gals over at Thermaltake rolled out a total of seven new "Smart" series power supplies. Three of them are modular, including 450W, 550W, and 650W models, and the other four are wired and include 430W, 530W, 630W, and 730W models. Modular or not, each Smart unit boasts features to help you "outsmart your bills," Thermaltake claims.
If you’re going to build a big, badass PC, you need a big, badass case to house that awesome 3-way SLI you’re planning on installing. The Level 10 GT chassis by Thermaltake is one such monstrosity. Yeah, its compartmentalized design is, well, not for everyone, but we still liked it enough that we gave it a 9 score a few months back -- despite its hefty $280 price tag. If that sticker cost was a bit too high, we’ve got some good news; Thermaltake has dropped the MSRP of the case to $200 through the end of November.
Ladies and gentlemen, overclockers and enthusiasts, meet the Frio Advanced, a big and bulky cooler that incorporates some of the most up-to-date CPU cooler technologies while still preserving the greatness of its predecessors, according to Thermaltake. Among the improvements to the Frio Advanced are extra welding points acting as headt collectors on the heatsink.
