Thermaltake Core V1 mITX Case Review

This is partly due to the availability of a functional chassis to create these stellar systems. No matter if you want a gaming rig or a low profile HTPC there is a case for the task at hand. Thermaltake has offered a few mITX cases in the past but with some new design directions, they are at it again with the Core V1. The Core and Urban series chassis are a large shift from the style and overall designs found in TT’s past series. With smooth, sleek , functional and simplistic designs, the Urban and Core series has captured many awards and praise. That simplistic but functional idea is carrying over to the mITX platform and may be what makes the Core v1 special. “Started from the Passion with the DIY (Do It Yourself) concepts and the desires to “Delivering the perfect user experience.” Thermaltake Technology was established in November, 1999 and has been market to the world with “Thermaltake” brand name ever since.

Tt eSPORTS MetalCaps 38 Piece Mechanical Keycap Set Review

Let's say that you just got your brand-spankin' new mechanical keyboard. You take it out of the box and it looks even more glorious than you could have imagined; the keys feel perfect to type on, the back lighting is flawless, the accuracy of your typing is better, and in general your gaming experience makes you feel like you could leap tall buildings in a single bound. Flash forward a few years though and you find yourself just not as enthusiastic about your keyboard as you once were: sure it's just as good as it was when you first bought it, but visually it's gotten a bit on the stale side. Thankfully for you, Tt eSPORTS has a solution for you to add some flavor to your existing keyboard with these metal keycaps. Designed to work with any Cherry MX or Thermaltake certified-style mechanical keys, I'm here to check out their construction quality and to gain some impressions on what it will actually do for your keyboard, be it for better or worse.

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate 360mm LCS Review

Introduction In the last few years, the CLC (Closed Loop Cooler) market has taken a big jump in market share… but we have only seen a few unique designs due to a patent set by Asetek on its pump/block design. This has limited a number of manufacturers from producing similar designs without running into this patent issue. This leaves us with companies that are re-branding their coolers and all while, Asetek hasn’t developed anything new or really exciting recently. We have seen CLC coolers with the same designs ranging with 120mm, 240mm and even 280mm rads with thickness ranging from 25-50mm. While each maker has attempted to add there own flare to each of these designs, these units are all essentially the same or very similar. While the patent still has not changed, we are excited to see that Thermaltake took a leap forward in making a change in this arena and we have the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate CLC cooler. The first and most notable performance change here is the larger radiator with support of 3x 120mm fans essentially making this the largest radiator of 360mm with a first triple 120mm CLC system. As we continue forward, we are going to give you the full details and we we are excited to see a change and can’t wait to see how it does. But, before we do that… Let’s talk a little about Thermaltake: Our Mission – Delivering the perfect user experience Every myth starts out as a dream, and at the beginning of every legend is a desire.

Thermaltake Urban T81 Case Review

   Introduction   Thermaltake shook up the market a few years ago with the release of the Level 10 chassis. It took everything we knew about what a computer case was supposed to look like, and tossed it out a window. It won Thermaltake (sometimes referred to as TT) many accolades and awards for design and innovation. The down side to this was the Level 10 set a high level of expectation that Thermaltake could not live up too with follow up cases. It is hard to please everyone and even harder to please the most hard core enthusiast as they set the tone for what makes for a great case. When faced with such a monumental task as this, it is good to take a step back and reset. The Urban series of chassis is exactly that, a reset of Thermaltake’s design team. The days of boisterous designs are being replaced with sleeker lines and more modern curves. This is an effort to attract gamers, water cooling and overclocking enthusiasts with this new Urban series of chassis. The flagship model, the Urban T81, will be put to the test in this review. We will attempt a build that should please all three segments.    About ThermalTake The brand personality of Unique, Aggressive, Vivid, and Stylish makes Thermaltake an expert in creating Exciting things and Fascinating environment for gamers and enthusiasts, also Keep them Constantly High physically and mentally. Moreover, Thermaltake Technology get close to consumers and observe lead users’ behavior and requirem...

Thermaltake Poseidon Z Mechanical Keyboard Review

Introduction   Mechanical keyboards are practically everywhere now. If a manufacturer makes enthusiast-grade peripherals, chances are there’s a mechanical keyboard somewhere in their product stack. The tactile feedback and resilience of mechanical keys has always been a draw for gamers and enthusiasts the world over, and as time progresses these keyboards get more and more bells and whistles added to them: RGB back lighting, integrated ARM processors for advanced macros and saving specific data, braided cables, and the list goes on. The one thing that has remained the same until late last year was the switches: every single switch out there was a Cherry.   Flash forward to today and we have a patent that Cherry had which has expired, allowing other manufacturers to start producing their own brand of mechanical switches. Thermaltake was among the first companies to pick up some of these new switches from Kailh (pronounced like the plant: KALE) and use them on their newest variant of the Poseidon Z keyboard. By using these switches, they have shaved off quite a bit of the premium normally seen for mechanical keyboards, but has it shaved off quality as well? Let’s learn a bit about Thermaltake eSports and find out. www.ttesports.com “Challenge is the Game” highlights the philosophy to bring out healthy addictions in gaming and the ambition of reaching the pinnacle of success. Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers ...
