On the front the panel, we have black metal which is highlighted with blue fluorescent stripes. The new mid tower chassis comes with a transparent window on the side following the footsteps of true Chaser tradition.
When it comes to CPU cooling Taipei based Thermaltake has found a way to impress us time after time with stellar performance from their all in one liquid coolers. And although their naming schemes sometimes leave something to be desired, they certainly seem to know how to create a great product for thermal management. For the first time we will be taking a close look at one of their air coolers, the NiC C4. The C4 is near the top of their new line of NiC coolers designed for maximum performance in the close confines on some of today’s motherboards. Will the C4 live up to the performance bar set by it’s bigger AIO brothers, or is this just another standard issue air cooler? Read on to find out!
Like most companies Thermaltake has an entire range of power supplies from the high-end to something for people looking to save some money. Not everyone has the money to throw at a top of the line power supply and Thermaltake knows this. Today we are taking a look at one of their more mainstream power supplies in the Smart SP-750P 750W Power Supply. This unit lacks some of the high-end features like modular cables and Over Temperature Protection, but you do get things like an 80PLUS Bronze certification, flat low profile cables, a single 12V rail design and of course a much lower price tag. Let’s take the Smart 750W through the paces and see how it works out.
Thermaltake has their Level 10 Cases, Level 10 M gaming mouse and now they have the Level 10 M gaming headset. It has just been unveiled at Computex Taipei!

Back at the end of 2010 TT eSPORTS introduced the MEKA G1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It was an instant hit with its Cherry MX Black mechanical key switches and extremely sturdy and solid design. At CES this year we were introduced to a whole new set of gaming keyboard from TT eSPORTS that featured backlit keys, something that was missing on many of TT eSPORTS early gaming keyboards. So today we have the TT eSPORTS MEKA G1 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard has the same features you saw in the original MEKA G1 like the 1000 Hz polling rate, built in USB hub and audio connections and 1.5m military grade cable. This new version also offers a dynamic pulse-break backlight system with 7 different illumination levels. Read on as we take a look!

Thermaltake is rounding out their Urban Series with the Urban S71 Full Tower Case. This case follows the same design as the S31 and S41 except it is a full tower case. The Urban Series is designed for users who are looking for powerful performance and high expandability but a more simple and sophisticated look. The case will be available in window and non-windowed versions.
We have already seen the A31 and A41 as part of Thermaltake’s new Chaser line and now they have the A71. This full tower case features the typical Chaser e-sports design which is inspired by the major motion picture Tron. Unlike the other Chaser cases the A71 also has a hard drive dock located on the top of the case.
Thermaltake has a new series of air CPU Coolers, which they are dubbing NiC. NiC stands for “non-interference cooler”. What that means is these coolers will not interfere with RAM installation in your system. For the longest time many CPU coolers would block your RAM slots or you would be limited to low profile modules. With these new air coolers Thermaltake eliminates that problem. The NiC series is comprised of the F3, F4, C4 and C5 coolers.
