Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower Chassis

Internal Features

Traditionally, Thermaltake has always championed the 'tool-less' design of their chassis', as well as the cooling efficiency. The Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower is no different and continues this trend.

Tool-less HDD's Open HDD
With the inclusion of tool-less mechanisms for ten PCI slots, seven HDD's and for the 5.25" drive bays it should make installation of your chosen system an absolute breeze. Thermaltake has also catered for those who prefer to still use the screw method.

You can see from the image below (right) that all the HDD cages are completely removable.
Tool-less blanking slots HDD's removed
The inclusion of a removable motherboard tray surprised me, as well as the provision for hidden cabling behind the motherboard area. In order to remove the motherboard tray you need to undo 4 small screws at the rear of the chassis, and then remove the two side panels. A little bit of fiddling about, but handy regardless.

The voids in the motherboard tray for hidden cabling are quite well finished off too; no nippy steel edges to report.

Additional graphics card cooling
The extra TT1425 140mm fan that was included in the accessories can be screwed on to the the face of the motherboard tray for additional cooling to hardware residing in your motherboards expansion slots.
bare case floor Enough room for a heat exchanger
Yes it had to be checked. The Thermaltake Xaser VI will safely accept a 240mm heat exchanger in the floor of the case, or a PA120.3, but you lose the HDD cages altogether. When I was comparing the barb distance on my PA120.3 to the pilot holes in the case floor they didn't quite line up, so please take note if you are planning on whacking a radiator in the bottom. Furthermore; you may find that the brace on the bottom of the motherboard tray may get in the way, but it should be easy enough to modify it without risking the structural integrity of the motherboard tray.

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
