Thermaltake had several of their cases on display at CES this year. Here we see the Full Tower Xaser VI and the Full Tower Armor Plus, both of which are available now.


One of Thermaltake's newer midtower cases is the M9. This case features nine 5.25" drive bays, which are swappable to 3.5" bays using a HDD cage. The M9 uses 120mm cooling fans both in the front and rear of the chassis. A tool-free installation system is used for the drive bays as well as the expansion cards.


Thermaltake had a quad-Crossfire system set up in one of their Armor Plus cases that was running Need For Speed: ProStreet. Being a huge fan of racing games, I decided to try my hand at a drag race. Rule #1 - always check your control configurations before racing! The green light of the tree hit, I took off in 1st gear... then redlined until I blew the engine. Everyone laughed and I felt pretty lame, so I tried again, with the same results. Turns out, the button to shift was not configured on the gamepad heh.

Thanks to Thermaltake for taking the time to show us around their booth. We look forward to reviewing some of these new products for our readers here in the near future.
