Introduction

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 better and better cases as time goes by.

I'm not talking about the Level 10 or Level 10 GT range of cases, as those are priced beyond most users "comfort level" for chassis pricing. For some time now Thermaltake as well as many other manufacturers are in an unnamed war to deliver the most feature rich chassis at rock bottom pricing. Just like SilverStone's PS06 we recently looked at, Thermaltake is trying to give the end user a window, USB 3.0 and a hard drive dock. On top of this, you still have to present an attractive full package and offer cooling above and beyond the competition as well. Since the SilverStone PS06 shares most of the features and offerings as this new Thermaltake chassis, I will be looking at this as almost a head to head review, due to the similarities not only in included features, but because the pricing is close as well.

The chassis that inspired the "pursuit without fear" line is the Chaser MK-1 from Thermaltake. While the chassis really offers nothing we haven't seen before from Thermaltake outside of aesthetic differences, it does deliver us most of the features in the Thermaltake arsenal of options. I say we just hop right into it and see what sort of feature set and aesthetic appeal the Chaser MK-1 delivers, and of course cover the most important factor in any chassis purchase, the cost!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
