Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower Chassis
Traditionally, Thermaltake has always championed the 'tool-less' design of their chassis', as well as the cooling efficiency. The Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower is no different and continues this trend.
With the inclusion of tool-less mechanisms for ten PCI slots, seven HDD's and for the 5.25" drive bays it should make installation of your chosen system an absolute breeze. Thermaltake has also catered for those who prefer to still use the screw method.
You can see from the image below (right) that all the HDD cages are completely removable.
The inclusion of a removable motherboard tray surprised me, as well as the provision for hidden cabling behind the motherboard area. In order to remove the motherboard tray you need to undo 4 small screws at the rear of the chassis, and then remove the two side panels. A little bit of fiddling about, but handy regardless.
The voids in the motherboard tray for hidden cabling are quite well finished off too; no nippy steel edges to report.
The extra TT1425 140mm fan that was included in the accessories can be screwed on to the the face of the motherboard tray for additional cooling to hardware residing in your motherboards expansion slots.
Yes it had to be checked. The Thermaltake Xaser VI will safely accept a 240mm heat exchanger in the floor of the case, or a PA120.3, but you lose the HDD cages altogether. When I was comparing the barb distance on my PA120.3 to the pilot holes in the case floor they didn't quite line up, so please take note if you are planning on whacking a radiator in the bottom. Furthermore; you may find that the brace on the bottom of the motherboard tray may get in the way, but it should be easy enough to modify it without risking the structural integrity of the motherboard tray.
