The Xaser VI Super Tower looks quite slick, and futuristic. I know that both of my sons thought it looked extremely cool. Featuring a lot of steel mesh, and some quite neat ergonomic inclusions, the chassis is sure to please. However, whilst the Xaser VI may not appeal to everyone tastes, it does still retain some subtleties of a traditional chassis that may appeal to the less uninhibited amongst us. Manufactured primarily from steel and hardened plastic (front door is made from Aluminium), the combination looks quite presentable.
Furthermore; you can see from the top (right) image that the Xaser VI Super Tower has an astounding 10 blanking plates to allow for the inclusion of triple/quad-SLI or Crossfire setups if you should be so inclined. Also, if you look hard enough there are two pilot holes beneath the rear exhaust fan to run tubing out for an externally mounted radiator.
One area that puzzled me, and still does so now, is why there are no readily available parts of the case that can be used to transport it. You can see from the image above that the 'Not A Handle' sticker is smack bang on one of the easiest places to use. Why it's there I will show you on the next page, but it still leaves the very bottom as the only position to carry the case. Once this case is fully decked out, you'd better bend your knees and keep your back straight!
Let's head over the page to see the particularly outstanding features of the Xaser VI Super Tower chassis...
