Thermaltake, an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, has once again set the trend in liquid cooling technology by introducing the Core X5 and Core X5 Riing Edition Cube Chassis. The Core X5 series supports iTX, M-ATX, A-TX, E-ATX motherboards, and come with the exclusive Tt LCS Certified logo.
When Thermaltake launched their Core X cube cases they had the Core X1 (mini-ITX), Core X2 (micro-ATX) and Core X9 (E-ATX), so there was a pretty big gab between the Core X2 and X9. The X9 was just a little too big for many people so Thermaltake has come out with an ATX Core X Cube case which is the Core X5.
Earlier this week we reviewed the Core X71 full tower case, which was a pretty awesome case. Also announced at CES this week was the smaller Core X31. Thermaltake knows that many people do not have the need for the Core X71 so the Core X31 is for people who are just looking for a mid tower.
One product that might have been overlooked with all of the massive cases at Thermaltake’s suite at CES is the new F6 RGB fan controller. Fan controllers are especially important to people who have a lot of fans in their case and want to control them independently.
Thermaltake had some pretty massive PC cases at CES this year. There are actually officially announcing their Core W series at the show and they are truly DIY cases made for builders. This series is made up of the W100, P100, WP100, W200, P200, and WP200.
Thermaltake’s Core series has been a huge success for Thermaltake since launching last year at CES. The whole motto of the Core X series is “Your Build. Our Core” which means that each of the cases in the Core X Series can be designed to fit your specific needs. The brand new Core X71 definitely fits that description as it has a internal modular design and it is one of the largest Thermaltake Cases that we’ve ever reviewed! Being a full tower it has room inside for multiple long graphics cards, two power supplies, over 5 hard drives, and lots, I mean lots of room for cooling! As far as water cooling support you have room for a 480 mm and two 360 mm radiators installed at the same time. This case also has room for a total of 11 140 mm fans too! As you can imagine you can put together a pretty extreme system with this case so let’s take a look!
Ahead of its launch, which we would expect will be in a couple of weeks at CES 2016 the Thermaltake TOUGHPOWER DPS G RGB Titanium Certified 1250W power supply was leaked on Amazon. This will be Thermaltake’s latest power supply entry and it is quite unique. Currently listed as unavailable on Amazon it will retail for $379.99 when released.
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about our review of Thermatake’s Riing Fans, the possibility of NVIDIA releasing a GTX 960 Ti, AMD’s release of their new Radeon Crimson Software, Black Friday deals, and much more!
For the most part if you are doing a PC build fans come into play. Now typically your case will come with a few fans, but they are typically not enough. If you get into water cooling then you are going to want to get fans that are specifically made for water cooling, or have a high static pressure. Well Thermaltake has you covered with their new Riing LED RGB fans. These fans are made specifically for radiators and feature a LED ring that goes around the frame of the fan. This LED ring is RGB giving you 256 multi-colored options to choose from, so you can definitely match it to your build quite easily. Thermaltake is offering these fans in 120 mm and 140 mm versions that come in a single pack (1 fan) or a 3-fan pack. Today we have a 3-pack of the 120 mm fans, let’s take a look and see what they are all about.
Back in June we took a look at Thermaltake’s Suppressor F51 was and we were quite impressed. So impressed that we gave it a perfect 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award. The case is actually still in use as the case for our video encoding machine since it is so quiet. Today Thermaltake brings us the Suppressor F31 which is a small step down from the F51 as it only supports motherboards up to ATX, has a different fan configuration, and less hard drive space. Thermaltake has actually taken the time to re-tool the case and make it wider for easy cable routing behind the motherboard tray, and they have created some pretty cool accessories for the case as well.
