I think the Tower 900 was a fantastic case. The design really made cooling optimal.

I can see why they have continued the design approach with the 100

Is it just me that has a hard time in general with Thermaltake? After the whole CaseLabs fiasco?... I find it hard to take them seriously after that and even more so buy anything from them at all.

I haven't, i don't forgive Thermaltake anymore then i would forgive Creative for releasing intentionally crippled drivers back in the early years of windows 7. Thermaltake far to easily copies stuff and while material quality has gone up, i could never take them serious or let them of the hook for doing the things they did.

Any idiot who ever confused a Case Labs with a TT should have a TT dropped on their bloody head, LOL! The only people who got "confused" by that are complete idiots.

I like the colours - but they took CaseLabs out without apology so they don't make it off my 5h1t L1$t. A shame that, but it does make choice triage easier if mfrs hoyk themselves on the naughty step.

If I knew about the CaseLabs fiasco earlier, then I might not have gotten my Chaser case.

Still, the new colors look really nice and I could see a Master Chief helmet casemod with the Racing Green one, where you "simply" put a golden foil on the glass that's somewhat transparent and elongate the angled part above the front glass panel. Or a doomslayer helmet style.


Am I the only one who got an itch from the waterblocks not being in the correct orientation in some of those pictures?

They didnt take out caselabs. Caselabs admitted liquidation due to tariffs and a large company defaulting. I think I read somewhere that Trump is to blame for starting a tariff war with China. Their Tariff costs went up by 80%

If anything, Caselabs would have been laughing at the poor attempts to imitate their catalogue.
