Thermaltake - Part 2
The second, larger Thermaltake booth was certainly the more flashy one, especially since this one had the booth babes whereas the others just had normal looking representatives.
Since this booth had a lot of the products the other booth did, I'm just going to focus on the products that were unique to this booth. First up is the Xpressar cooling system. According to the Thermaltake, it's the "World's First Micro-Refigeration System." It's based on Freon, so it's definitely not the same as phase change systems. The rep told me that this system is going to be competitively priced, somewhere in the region of a good water cooling setup. With claims of being able to cool 20 degrees lower than water, that makes this a compelling buy.
Thermaltake had some new Toughpower power supplies on display, and I've gotta tell you, these things were massive. You practically need a full tower case to be able to use these as they would be far too large for many mid tower cases.
Of course, Thermaltake also had some power supplies for those of us who can't stick an oversized PSU into our cases.
Thermaltake has also hopped on the "green" bandwagon with its environmentally friendly power supplies, including the new ESA series.
Rounding out the booth was Thermaltake's new flagship case. It has a cooling tunnel where you have the ability to move the fan up and down, giving you the ability to focus the fresh incoming air on specific parts of your case.
