Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower Chassis

Well I must say that the Xaser VI Super Tower performed very well in our thermal zone testing today. The resultant temperatures are more than acceptable. You can see from the graph that the two obvious areas that incurred a rise in temperature, are the GPU and CPU. This is not surprising considering that the Q6600 is dumping over 95W of heat back into the case, and the Palit 8600 GT graphics card doesn't feature the cooling solution of its older siblings (8800 GTS/GTX), where the waste heat is exhausted out the back of the card itself.
The 120 and 140mm fans that Thermaltake has included in the Xaser VI Super Tower are extremely quiet to say the least. I could actually hear the 80mm fan on the Scythe Ninja mini heat sink and the fan on my 8600 GT graphics card over the top of the Thermaltake cooling fans. The noise emitted by the Thermaltake cooling fans borders on the inaudible. Excellent effort Thermaltake.
Now let's head over the page to see our final thoughts; conclusion and the award given to the Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower chassis in todays performance review...
