Leading chassis manufacturer Thermaltake today announced the addition of the all-black DOKKER mid-tower chassis to their collection. The DOKKER is a top-mounted HDD single back docking station PC chassis and part of Thermaltake’s highly successful docking station chassis series.

The DOKKER carries forward the Thermaltake tradition of being a chassis with exceptional airflow – depending on their requirements users have the option of installing up to 7 fans. The front panel is metal-mesh for faster cold air intake, while the rear top of the chassis has an extra large 120mm blue LED fan running at 1300 RPM for extra fast heat removal.

For the liquid cooling enthusiast, the DOKKER is ready to take in liquid cooling apparatus. There are two holes in the back for 1/2”, 1/8”, and 1/4” water tubes. The reserved liquid cooling hold supports high-performance 24cm and 12cm water cooling radiator. The combination of fans and liquid cooling makes the DOKKER a superbly cooled chassis.

Thermaltake has equipped the DOKKER with a dual-use single HDD docking station on the front top. Depending on their needs, users can fit a 3.5” or a 2.5” SATA drive into the hot-swappable station. The drives can be quickly changed without the need for any software or hardware. In addition to the top-loading bay, the chassis also has 10 bays for HDDs – 3 for 5.25in ones, 1 for 3.5in accessible, 5 for 3.5in regular and 1 for 2.5in HDDs.

The chassis has been designed to accommodate all the latest top-line graphics cards up to 12.5” length and to keep such a card cool Thermaltake has provided pre-drilled ventilation holes on the left panel. These holes allow the installation of one more fan to provide direct cooling to the graphics card.

The DOKKER also has an extra large tray hole for motherboards, which makes it easy to remove or exchange CPU coolers. Special holes have also been drilled for cable routing management. The chassis has been installed with dust filters for the fans, PSU, and 5.25in drive bays to ensure there is no dust accumulation within the chassis. The overall effect is a chassis that is not just ready to be fully loaded, but also remains extraordinarily silent even at full load.

Yeah man job's a goodun tbh.

Make sure to consider the aftermarket cards though. They'll see to it that you have less heat and noise headaches..

For example is well worth the extra 20 sheets (if you live in the UK likes).

Ed. Also consider that a small mod like this one

With some meshed back plates will also help to get the hot air out and feed the cards with air :)

Na, the P55's are full ATX standard.

I'm using a P55 and was thinking of doing the same thing but as AlienALX has said, it would depend on the PCI-E slot layout. You could in theory run them straight on top of each other but the top card would get very very hot.

If you were wondering about whether the slots could handle it, again some of the boards run 8 x 8 on the PCI-E lanes and others split them differently. However, if it is 8 x 8 then that would provide enough bandwidth for the cards.

I wouldn't even think of geting 470 with stock cooler on it, i have MSi 470 twinfrozr II, so i'll add the same one

Oh yeah, just checked and your lanes are like this so you're fine - 2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16 or dual at x8 / x8 mode

not a massive loss using dual 8x tbh. But, I guess it's a loss all the same.

Lovely cards you have there mate. Should scream :)

That means i'm good to go with sli, thnx for such fast reply.

P.S now thats a find of the day, definitly will stick to this forum

No loss at all i would say - I had the same performance on 8x/8x and 16x/16 - no difference at all.

Yeah I hear ya man. I mean, depending on your CPU those cards in SLI are so fast that like me you could hit a dead end. My 470 beats Crossfired 5770s in my machine and I'm certain that was down to the CPU holding them back.

i5-760 at 4GHz, like majority of i5-i7 users, dont have HT but that wouldn't help for games anyway, i kinda hoped my CPU wouldn't bottleneck 470 sli, or i might be wrong?

I know that SLI 580 were bottlenecked by an I7 965 OC, amazingly so in Tri SLI.

What you will need to do is real world tests (bench before and after) to decipher your gains. But, I would strongly imagine that your CPU will allow them to stretch their legs very well.

You are also running dual 8x, meaning that will stop them from being as bonkers (5% or so reduction).

You should be fine dude.

Please though, post back with your results !! No one has statted up some proper in depth benches with 470 yet :)
