Cooling Performance

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.

Noise

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...

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
