The Thermaltake Xaser VI is a full tower case that will give your system an imposing look. This Xaser VI weights in at a hefty 24.2 pounds, and stands 23.8 inches tall. Thermaltake calls the Xaser VI a "Super Tower", and keeps the same "X" style design that the previous Xaser cases have used. The Xaser VI uses a mesh design and a see through window for visual access to the components inside - perfect for showing off your creation! The Xaser VI has an aluminum and plastic outer shell.
Keeping with Thermaltake's tradition of designing cases with maximum airflow, they have made the top vent big, so that hot air from the CPU and other components will be expelled quickly. In addition to the vent, Thermaltake has included an accessory bay that is hidden under the top panel of the case - just slide the top panel back and viola! This is also where you would fill the Liquid Cooling System, if you had that option installed in the Xaser VI.
The Xaser VI has all of the necessary ports you will need for your system. Included are four USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire port, the audio jacks, and two eSATA ports for external drives. The eSATA ports connect to a standard SATA port on the motherboard, so if your motherboard does not have eSATA already, this gives you that capability. There is also a Power switch that doubles as an "X" logo, a Reset switch, and the hard drive LED. The X and surrounding shapes glow when the system is powered on.
The front of the case has a vented mesh door that opens to provide access to the optical drives; the door can be removed or switched around to allow it to be opened from the left or right side, depending on your needs. There are dust filters covering each of the drive bays, and the top seven can be removed to install drives or other accessories. Just reach in and pull on the dust filter to release the latching mechanism; the cover pulls away and can be stored for use in the future.
Now, let's switch over and take a look at the inside of the Thermaltake Xaser VI case.
