Thermaltake SwordM Water Cooling System - Part 2

PC Perspective
10 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Thermaltake’s new SwordM full-tower enclosure is a real beauty and loaded with features.  It is available with or without an integrated water cooling system and is designed to accommodate a 7” LCD monitor bay device.  There were just too many interesting features to cover in a single review so we had to present the SwordM in two parts.  Previously in Part 1, we focused on the SwordM limited edition enclosure and the optional 7” LCD monitor.

Thermaltake SwordM Case Video Review

  • Summary: Thermaltake SwordM Case is constructed from thick aluminum and this gives the case rigidly but it also adds weight. It's interesting to note that while the all-aluminum structures are produced through an automated process they are all fine-tuned by hand. For that reason the SwordM case is a Limited Edition product and very expensive. At the top are stylish and strong handles for maneuvering the case.

Thermaltake SwordM

13 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Like Bill’s Hanzo sword, Luke’s lightsaber, and Gordon Freeman’s crowbar, Thermaltake’s newest chassis appears unconvincingly plain—until you take it out for a spin. The SwordM dices through our typical chassis frustrations like a chain saw through a burrito. This is truly a next-generation case.
  • Pros: Next-generation design; awesome construction; solid, stylish; front-panel eSATA.
  • Cons: Could use more cable space in rear; screwy (hah! get it?) hard drive bay with only 3 slots.

Expert Review

  • Summary: The Thermaltake SwordM isn't cheap, but those looking for some garish over-the-top design and some serious cooling will enjoy this style. Thermaltake could have put more effort into the tool-free aspect and some fan control would have been handy, but overall it's a powerful case for a powerful system.
  • Pros: Hydraulic doors, plenty of fans, water cooling, e-SATA (with power) on the front panel
  • Cons: Could be more tool-free, no external fan speed controls, a lot of unnecessary cost involved, extremely heavy
