Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Shock 3D 7.1 Gaming Headset

Introduction A good gaming headset is a critical weapon in the arsenal of the modern gamer. Finding the headset that suits your needs is just as important in the context of modern gaming as selecting the right mouse, keyboard or monitor. With multi-player gaming, whether Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, or even Minecraft being the dominant form of gaming, good communications is critical to successful team battles, raids or PVP. The market is full of options: corded, cordless, bluetooth, over the ear, on the ear, around the head, earbuds, a veritable myriad of choices! With that said, PureOC is here to save the day, and help you evaluate one of the many choices on the market. The headset in question is brought to you by the Tt eSPORTS division of Thermaltake. Established in 2010, Tt eSPORTS focuses on accessories like Mice, Keyboards, Headsets & Mouse Pads. Their products tend to have an enthusiast/gamer focus, and the headset we are evaluating today, the Tt eSPORTS Shock 3D 7.1 Gaming Headset is no exception. Let us see if it “brings it!” in terms of performance, comfort and solid audio. Is this headset going to give you an edge, or lead you down the road to confusion on the digital battlefield? Before we really get into this review, let’s first hear about Tt eSPORTS in Thermaltake’s own words.     About Tt eSPORTS: “Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers from all over the world in a unique &...

Thermaltake Core V1 mITX Case Review

  Introduction The versatility of the mITX platform continues its popularity with gamers and builders of all kinds. 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.

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.

Thermaltake Commander F5 Fan Controller

Introduction   Nearly every good-looking build project has two things in common, great cable management and a good cooling solution. These cooling solutions usually involve multiple fans in multiple locations. This requires a great deal of patience to insure clean cable runs. One of the easiest ways to get this accomplished is to use a fan controller. It will help you regulate the speed of the radiator or case fans separately and limit having to use cable splitters. One of the most commonly used controller types uses sliders because of the ease of use. Thermaltake has been making fan controllers and other cooling solutions for some time now, so I am not surprised to see them with a new model. The Thermaltake Commander F5 aims to offer a cost effective flexible and easy to use fan controller for the masses. Before we go any further, we would like to thank Thermaltake for sending the F5 for review and for being a market innovator during the last 13 years!   Mission   - While still a relatively young company, established in 1999, Thermaltake is built on unwavering will and dedication to address issues and innovate at the same time for computer enthusiasts and corporate users worldwide. - With strong support of Research & Development team standing behind the brand, Thermaltake is committed to never-follow but always-lead. - In past decades, the industrial and technological advancements in different fields have shaped the world we live in today and have also ...
