Thermaltake Announces New Gaming Headset and Tempered Glass Cases
Thermaltake has apparently been busy preparing for CES 2017 as it has announced even more products. First up of this latest batch I have here is the new CRONOS Riing RGB 7.1 Gaming Headset under its Tt eSPORTS brand. As you can guess from the name, this headset supports 7.1 virtual surround sound and uses RGB illumination to provide 16.8 million colors. The headset has two light zones and users can select from eight different lighting effects, which are shown in the video below. Delivering the sound are 50 mm oversized neodymium drivers that have been tilted to better aim the sound at your ears. The internal digital sound tech allows the user to enjoy 96 KHz/24-bit audio to provide clear sounds while you play your favorite games. The headset uses new software for managing its capabilities but also has an in-line control for easy access to some of these options. The ear cushions are also 25 mm thick for your comfort. The CRONOS Riing RGB 7.1 Gaming Headset has an MSRP of $84.99.
Next up we have the new View 31 TG and View 31 TG RGB tempered glasses ATX cases. Naturally the difference between these is the inclusion of three Riing 14 RGB LED fans with the TG RGB case, while the plain TG case only comes with two Riing 14 Blue LED fans. Both cases feature a fully modular, tool-free design with fine fan filters at the top and bottom to keep out dust and support for liquid cooling solutions.
If you are looking for something smaller, Thermaltake has added to its Core P series of miniITX cases with the Core P1 TG. It is also a tempered-glass case like those above, but in the compact miniITX form factor. It is actually small enough that the case can be mounted to the wall, if that is how you want to show off your hardware behind the 5 mm thick tempered glass panel. You can also place it vertically or horizontally, if that is your preference. Despite being small though, it supports AIO and DIY liquid cooling solutions and has room for a single 280 mm radiator and two 120 mm or 140 mm fans on the side. You can even 3D print liquid cooling components for the case, if you are interested in doing so. The case has an open frame design, so you can build it up as you wish, with the modular panels, racks, and brackets available to you. It has 1+3 drive trays that can be hidden in the back panel and a special design bracket, with a riser cable, if you want change the orientation of your GPU.
