Smaller 2.5-inch hard drives have become very popular because of the introduction of solid state drives a few years ago. Since then the drives have come down in price and many people are purchasing their first solid state drive. Many cases do not have a spot to mount a 2.5-inch hard drive, although some new cases do a good amount do not. For this reason Thermaltake has come out with the Max 4 hard drive rack. It supports 2 2.5-inch SATA drives and features tool-free hard drive installation. Let’s take a look at the Max 4 and see it is perfect for your new solid state drive!
But recently, I’ve had the bug for a small footprint rig for HTPC. I have had several mATX motherboards over the past year, but never ended up with a small case for them. Recently I was asked to review a Mini-ITX motherboard, and this time I couldn’t wing it, I would have to have a case for it. Imagine my excitement when I opened the box and saw that familiar orange and red Thermaltake logo. I’ve had one Thermaltake HTPC styled case, but though it was a desktop it still was large enough to house an ATX motherboard. Not so here, this one will hold only the 6.7” x 6.7” Mini-ITX board. Today I will be looking at the Thermaltake Element Q Mini-ITX Case. It is quite small, but still has room for a 5.25” drive and a pair of 3.5” drives. It also comes with its own 220 watt power supply. Read on to check out the Thermaltake Element Q!
A couple of years ago Thermaltake released the V9 gaming case and later the V9 Black Edition. Today we are taking a look at another case in their V-Series the V3. The V3 is designed to be very functional, but at a very low cost. You can pick this case up for $50 online! This is an extremely low cost for any case, especially a Thermaltake case. This case features an all black design, mesh front bezel, and a 120mm blue LED fan. Let’s see if this is the perfect case for your next budget build.
Today we have the opportunity to look at the Thermaltake SpinQ VT. A little over a year ago reviewed the original SpinQ, which was a 2009 design award winner. The SpinQ VT takes that design and rotates it 90 degrees to stand vertically, hence the name VT. There were some alterations over the original SpinQ which we’ll cover in this review. Read on further to see what they are.
El Monte, CA – February 11, 2010 – iBUYPOWER, a leading innovator in gaming PCs, is excited to announce the first and only liquid cooling solution for the Thermaltake Level 10 enclosure.

Our friends at Thermaltake were nice enough to invite us to their suite at the Venetian to check out some of their new products. This year, Thermaltake has quite a few new products and even some different products that you wouldn’t think they would be releasing. On the LUXA2 side of things, they had some new products as well.

Not everyone needs a particularly flashy or super powerful power supply unit. The Thermaltake TR2 series caters to users who need functionality, but have no need for bells and whistles beyond modular cabling and 80PLUS certification. The TR2 RX subseries delivers the modular cable management savvy users expect these days. ThinkComputers checks out the TR2 RX 750W in this review.
Thermaltake’s cases are usually quite flashy, but its power supplies have been traditionally pretty standard black boxes. There are a few which break this mold, and the Evo Blue series is one of them. ThinkComputers got its hands on the 75oW version for review. The Evo Blue features modular cables and color-changing LEDs in addition to great cooling and a more attractive design. The review is here.
Most well known for its lines of internal parts—cases, cooling units, power supplies and such—ThermalTake also has a few other lines, including its external storage enclosures and docks. The Blacx Duet Docking Station is one such product. It features dual SATA bays into which the user can drop a hard or solid state drive of any dimension and connect it to a computer via either USB or eSATA. ThinkComputers has the review.
