The Thermaltake Xaser VI Mx shows its beauty only when you finish unwrapping it. It is made of SECC, a steel having a high thermal conductivity. The trapezoïd grids are also made of steel. However, the front door is made of plastic. On the right side, the grids are replaced by two plexi-glass windows. The colors chosen for the case mesh well together, the red used in combo with the shiny black is very beautiful. Also, the name Xaser is written on each side, including the top, with the first letter put in evidence.
Its legs can be turned outward to gain stability. The case also has a blue rear fan and power LED. The light emited by them goes out by the two windows when in a dark environment.
The front door can be opened to show the drive bays. There are one 3.5" and five 5.25" bays. The first four from the bottom are false bays, as it is the place of the front intake fan. It also reveals the case brand and its slogan: "COOLall your life." When closed, it is hinged in place by two small magnets.
The front panel is located on the top, along with the power button, the reset button and the hard drive LED. It features two USB ports 2.0, the microphone in, the earphone out, and an e-SATA port. Again, the "X" from Xaser is put in evidence, as it is the shape of the power button.
The drive bay covers can be removed by pulling on the small black grids. The back of the case shows that there are seven expansion slots. The rear 120mm exhaust fan can also be seen. On the side, there is a stylish handle with a lock in it. Two keys come attached on rear of the case.
We will now look into more detail to its working components.
