Thermaltake Xaser III

HCW
26 January 2006
  • Conclusion: So does the next evolution of the Thermaltake Xaser live up to the hype? Just like when Thermaltake released the Xaser II, there are still those who immediately dismiss it as another modded Antec and others who simply can't stand pre-modded cases (we'll save that discussion for another day...).
  • Pros: looks even better!, toolless and cool instruction stickers, nice cooling performance with 7 fans...and it's still quiet, all intake fans are filtered, new Hardcano works great, cool HD rack, drive rails for EVERYTHING, great build quality
  • Cons: looks are an acquired taste that some might not get, PCI slot clips are flawed in design, relatively expensive, no mobo tray

  • Summary: Now we have had a thorough look around the case. "What do we think of it?" I hear you all asking. As always with Thermaltake products the build quality is extremely high. The case seems bombproof and even held this grown man standing on top of it during testing.
  • Pros: Superb cooling, Nice looking case with window, EL Lighted logo, Hardcano included in the price, EMI Shielding, Removable Motherboard Tray, Tooless design, Lots of room for drives
  • Cons: Design is a love or hate affair, Quite cramped inside once system is installed, No PSU included, High Price (Around $130)

Thermaltake Xaser III VM3000A "SKULL" Mid Tower Case

HCW
12 January 2004
  • Conclusion: All in all, you have to be a fan of wilder looking case designs to truly appreciate the Xaser III Skull. If you are into an attention-getting hardcore case with a sweet looking window and EL lit logo on the front, then you have to check out the Skull.
  • Pros: Looks awesome, if you're into this style of case, Almost completely tool-less installation, Many security features, Awesome features on the HardCano 10
  • Cons: Pretty heavy, in weight and price, Exhaust fan bay can get in the way of some PSU's

  • Conclusion: You've seen them before, and you'll see them again - clips you install on the drives themselves, so you can simply slide them into place. The problem with most designs are that you have to screw the clips onto the drives! What's the point of that if your goal is a completely tool-less installation!

  • Conclusion: Well has Thermaltake bitten off more than it can chew? Simply put…no. Thermaltake have included everything needed to make a great case, and nothing more. They have succeeded in making a case that has excellent cooling, decent assembly, rich in features, and the looks to please.

MODTHEBOX.COM
27 July 2003
  • Conclusion: The Thermaltake Xaser Series of cases seem to have a love and hate relationship with the case modding community.

  • Cons: Extremely heavy, No removable motherboard tray, Stamped exhaust grills may impede airflow, No front ventilation intake, Drive bay cages are not removeable, Hardcano 9 has no backlight options
