    What a stupid window on the case. It just shows of your cables.

    The window does block your view of most everything inside but also brings with it additional cooling over the MB and GPU areas when gaming with the 180mm fan.

    How does it compare to Tt Chaser Mk-1?

      The Thormax is slightly larger. Supports up to Eatx boards. The window design is slightly better as well. Quality wise I would say they are even. I do not care for the look of either. If I had to pick I would go with the Thormax.
