Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower Chassis

Internal: A Closer Look

Internal: A Closer Look

The Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower certainly has plenty of room for internal storage. Complete with room for 7 HDD's and 7 x 5.25" drive bays, you really can't complain about the space it affords.

 The following images further illustrate the space and functionality that the Xaser VI Super Tower can bring to a new system build.

Thermaltake has also included an adjustable PSU bracket which may come in handy if you're looking to utilise a PSU which is longer than the average. It comes with 2 x thumb screws which makes it dead simple to adjust.
Top mounted exhaust fan
You can see from the image above that Thermaltake has included a large exhaust fan to help eliminate rising temperatures from within the case. With a 140mm fan at the front and a 120mm fan at the rear of the case, as well as the top mounted 140mm exhaust fan, the Xaser VI Super Tower should be able to provide a good account for itself in respect to cooling and noise.
 Case riveted together

To be honest, one of the areas of the Xaser VI Super Tower that didn't appeal to me was the preference for using pop rivets during construction. Whilst pop rivets no doubt do the job well, they tend be a hinderence to those who prefer to 'mod' their cases. The inclusion of screwed joints on all structural members would have made the experience more enjoyable, and would have allowed the case a little more 'modability'.

Nice review as always Matt, still can't help but think that the case looks plasticy and tacky.

I would have considered buying it 2 years ago but no a chance now i've used a V2000 & a TJ07. Sorry TT but you just aint cutting it in my eyes.Quote

Thanks Marcus. Yeah I agree...I love my TJ-07. Tt do target a specific market typically, and I believe that the Xaser VI will definitely appeal to many of the younger and budget conscious generation. Providing the price is right Quote

I like all the functionality it provides, although to me it visually resembles a cheapo X-Blade chassis.Quote

LOL - waits for TT user/xblade owner to say heyyy!

I bought a TT case for my first simply because it was black, in the sale from £80 to £20, wasn't particularly flashy and had lots of quiet fans and I didn't know any better

In all fairness it was a decent case and even though my current lili ended up costing £175 with the hole saw cuts and delivery it doesn't seem any better than my old TT, just more expensive - sure it's nice and I don't mind becasue I don't really have a budget...

I think TT designs are getting worse. That is an acheivement right there!Quote
