TweakTown Rating: 9.0%Manufacturer: ThermalTake



On the whole the case doesn't look too bad and if you're into the wide range of features ThermalTake offer you, the case is going to suit you very well. The extra fans which feature LEDs are great and give that little bit extra which was missing with previous Xaser cases. It would have been nice if ThermalTake also included one of their Cold Cathodes to add that little bit of extra color. This along with the fans would make a very stylish looking computer case.


When it comes to ThermalTake making their next case, let's all hope that they decide to include a slide out motherboard tray. While installation wasn't too difficult considering the lack of motherboard tray, when it comes to installing new computer parts motherboard trays make life a lot easier and painless.


Not a lot has changed within the case. ThermalTake only added a few slight improvements when it comes to their predecessor. We were very impressed with what ThermalTake had on offer last time and it is nice to see that they have done a little bit more with the case in the direction of creating almost the perfect product.


If you're interested in upgrading from your previous Xaser to this model because you think it will provide better cooling results, you shouldn't. On the other hand, if you have a few dollars spare and you do prefer the new look go for it and upgrade to the Xaser X.


Overall we have an excellent case that can be the beginning of a long line of case modding projects for the user.

Definitely the best looking Xaser to date
