Thermaltake has also focused this year mainly on various cooling products, when it decides to take a step forward, bringing the Extreme Cooling to the home user.
Curls in all shapes and colors
In addition to introducing older models with various improvements such as larger fans and compatibility with Intel's LGA1366 chassis, the company introduced the SpinQ, an air cooling system that is designed differently than anything you have ever seen. 6 is connected to 50. Spiral aluminum fins are designed in a rotary shape, centered on a fan responsible for heat dissipation and flow along with the aluminum fins. Due to its original design, the SpinQ has won one of the exhibition's innovation awards.
Another caveat, or rather a whole series of caverns, worth remembering is the ISGC series, which offers a variety of cooling elements in different forms. The main innovation is the fan, which is equipped with a special design of the fan blades, which includes an opening at the ends of the blades. The company claims that it managed to bring the fan, which is 12 centimeters, to a maximum quiet level, even in extended use. For those who are quiet among us, the ISGC fan will also be sold separately, regardless of the different cooling elements.
With regard to water cooling systems, the company launched a wide range of different parts, including a new 600 L, a water tank, a variety of blocks for the various components and a whole new water cooling system for all the components in the computer, from the chip system through the processor to the graphics card.
The highlight of Thermaltake, Which was revealed earlier last year, Is a closed gas cooling systems, only buy and assemble. The systems, called Xpressar, will come in two configurations. One is a complete system that includes the gas cooling system located inside the Xesar IV package, which will cost $ 599 (with the case of course) and is available to the general public already this month. A second configuration is a separate gas cooling system installed in the 5.25 bays and will occupy no less than four bays. This system will allow assembly in any chassis or system that you desire. Its price will range from $ 399 to $ 499, depending on the chilled components (processor, chipset, video card) and will be available in June of this year.
Enclosures and a little beyond
Of all the new packaging packages presented by the company, the home cinema models, which use aluminum, stand out in different configurations, including LCD panels on the front panel. Among these packages, the company included a chassis designed for the Mini ITX motherboard that the company claims was designed and manufactured at Intel's request.
Another chassis that has attracted our attention is the Element chassis, which is designed in a round and flowing way, with a quiet focus (contains noise isolating material on the cabinet door) and maximum storage. The chassis has room for 7 standard size hard drives (3.5), and it also offers room for two more 2.5-inch hard drives, which is quite practical, as SSDs slowly seep into the market. All drives can be installed in two main forms, one to the width of the chassis and the other to the length (both in the form of a tower), at the user's choice. In terms of cooling, the company has equipped the Element chassis with 12 fans an inch and the possibility of adding an 23 fan an inch to the chassis door.
Another award-winning product is the Spedo chassis, which maintains an elegant design and has an internal division into areas, which improves airflow in the chassis. Here, too, you can choose the direction of inserting hard drives, and the price of the Spedo package will be about $ 240.
It is important to note that the company seems to be focusing its efforts on designing more elegant and less elegant products in orange and garish products, which it has done to this day.
Thermaltake is also launching a new series of power supplies, called XT. This series will come in relatively high capacity, from 650 watts to 1200 watts, and all models will be modulated and will contain a limited number of 12 volts to allow maximum power and efficiency. Among other things, the XT series will also include control lights to show proper temperature and power stability, and the option to adjust the fan operation time in question after the system has been turned off.
