Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

techPowerUp!
13 September 2011
  • Summary: Thermaltake has had plenty of ups and downs in its company history. Having been on the market for such a long time we have seen really good cases and then not so good ones. In recent history it feels like the company did not manage to turn too many heads with their line-up, while the competition in the market has gotten rather fierce with young and small start-ups managing to pull more momentum.
  • Pros: Great detailed looks, Very good build quality, Functional HDD Dock, Fan control high/low, Multiple LED lighting modes, Combat Headset Holder actually quite useful, EPS extension cable included, Plenty of space inside the chassis for the latest gaming hardware, Easy tool-less ODD installation, Internal USB 3.0, Very cool looking and functional hard drive sleds, 3.5 inch adapter in the same look of the 5.25" bay included, Two 200 mm and one 120 mm fans included, Dust fi...
  • Cons: Elaborate design not for everyone, Front drive bay covers may vibrate under certain scenarios, Headset holder a bit fragile, Somewhat complicated PSU installation method

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 Full Tower Case Review

ThinkComputers
31 August 2011
  • Summary: Final Thoughts It is great to see Thermaltake come out with a reasonably priced case aimed at gamers, modders and enthusiasts.  As I said in the opening of this review the Level 10 and Level 10 GT are a little pricey and the Armor cases are more on the lower end.  So the Chaser MK-1 fits perfectly in the middle delivering all of the features you want at a reasonable price. This case sure has a lot of room inside, even with all of your hardware installed.
  • Pros: – Sleek and stylish design, – Great cooling, – ColorShift Fans, – Lots of room inside, – Easy installation & toolless systems, – Hard drive dock included, – Internal USB 3.0 connector
  • Cons: – None that I found

21 August 2011
  • Summary: The Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 is big and bold surely, but under it all it’s a well designed and aesthetically pleasing case. There’s plenty of room for even the largest of video cards and several hard drives to make sure you’ve got room for all of your stuff. I found installation to be easy since the case is nice and large inside giving you plenty of room to move around.
  • Pros: +Lots of room, +Looks great, +Quiet fans included, +Built-in SATA hard drive dock, +Keeps system cool, +Easy installation, +Room for liquid cooling, +Quiet fans
  • Cons: -Side panel sucks in dust and needs to be cleaned often, -USB 3.0 only for motherboards with those headers, no adapter included

Expert Review

Tweak Town
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Thermaltake has been around for what seems like as long as I have been around. While their beginnings may have been "rocky" and most users shun the name brand these days, I am here to tell you that Thermaltake has made leaps and bounds worth of improvement over this time frame. Even just looking back to the Element cases I was presented just over a year ago, Thermaltake has made big strides to improve not only their public image, but are making great moves to deliver us...

Thermaltake Chaser MK-I

azerty.nl
17 September 2013
  • Pros: Mooi grote kast met heel veel werkruimte. De bijgeleverde fans zijn goede 600-800 RPM fans met drie led-kleuren. Ik heb de hotswap-sata poort nog niet aan de gang, maar dat komt wel. Het is vooral handig om twee USB2.0 en twee USB3.0 poorten voorop te hebben, en uiteraard headphones+microphone jacks. Daarbij zit er nog een fan-controller (High-Low) en een Fan-Led controller voor de multicolor fans (een knop die door opties roteert)., Het tool-less inbouwen van drives ...
  • Cons: Groot. Neemt aardig wat plek in, alhoewel wanneer iemand voor deze kast kiest is het waarschijnlijk geen zaak., Jammer dat de multicolor fans nergens meer te krijgen zijn. Ik heb zelf twee Aerocool silent masters geinstalleerd, werkt prima.

5 November 2011
  • Summary: Il Thermaltake Chaser MK-I racchiude in sé il giusto connubio tra praticità e stile rivolgendosi  principalmente ad un pubblico giovane pur essendo dotato, al contempo, di caratteristiche che lo rendono adatto anche ad un'utenza professionale. Siamo di fronte ad un prodotto che fa della semplicità di installazione e manutenzione una delle sue prerogative più importanti, una scelta sensata che dimostra come un cabinet per “Gamers” possa essere adatto ad un pubblico più...

Thermaltake Chaser MK-I Gehäuse

Gamezoom.NET
27 June 2011
  • Summary: Der Chaser MK-I von Thermaltake bietet jeden aktuellen Standard und noch etwas mehr. Spezielle Features wie ein Hotplug Quickport, ein Haltebügel für Headsets, Schnellmontagen, abwaschbare Filter, USB 3.0 u.v.m. sorgen für eine entsprechend hohe Wertung. Zudem ist der Tower nicht nur schön anzusehen, sondern auch noch sehr gut verarbeitet. Spielerein wie eine veränderbare Beleuchtung oder eine Zweistufen-Regelung für Lüfter sind noch das Tüpfelchen auf dem "i".
  • Pros: sehr gute Verarbeitung, üppiges Platzangebot, Schnellmontageelemente, Hotplug Quickport, USB 3.0, veränderbare Beleuchtung, Lüfter Regelung, hoher Luftdurchsatz, tolle Ausstattung, ansprechende Optik, Sichtfenster
  • Cons: Lüfter bei Volllast deutlich hörbar
