Cases, cases, cases – it is almost the second month of the new year, and I have my first chassis to review. Since I just arrived home from CES 2012, I know there's going to be some stiff competition coming out this year, and it should be interesting to see where each chassis falls in comparison over the year. Although a case says a lot about you, why even bother if it can't keep your hardware at reasonable temperatures? Most companies are aware of this problem and have provided quite reasonable options these days.

The front and back display what the entire chassis looks like, and the box seems to have an overall transformers theme. Some of the unique features we'll discuss later are disclosed on the back side in full color.
The sides of the box provide handles, which has become one of my favorite things about any case box these days. I need a way to carry it into the house, and therefore a lack of handles makes me, and my back, sad. The box indicates that it could potentially come with an optional 500W PSU for an additional price. There are no additional color options marked on the box. The other side of the box provides the usual list of features in multi-lingual options.
Cutting open the top reveals the front of the case. A nice Thermaltake logo is presented through the plastic bag reminding you that you bought a true Tt product. The usual foam caps hold and protect the top and bottom of the case. Even with the beating this box took, the case arrived with no harm at all; a plus-one to the packing team. Sitting in its foam caps, the Overseer wants to be let out of the bag already and is telling me to stop with all the photographs…
