Default Thermaltake Spedo

Just found this on the Thermaltake global website.

Spedo

Not sure what to make of it. I like some of Thermaltake's cases but this one had me going...huh? That's different. They say it won't be available until 5th of October.

I am told by our rep that the exterior is plastic. No thanks.

Specs say its 0.8 SECC except for the obvious plastic parts (seem to be a lot of those). But you're right SKYMTL, I don't think it's for me either. To many things can break.

It does look very plasticky. Although the idea of the removable compartments is kinda cool. Nice of them to include a cable management system on the back like that. I always have a hell of a time cramming my back sidepanel back on with all those wires back there.

*Breathes a sigh of relief*

When I clicked on this thread, I was terribly afraid the title was a typo, and this was actually about the new "Thermaltake Speedo"... I'm not sure what that would have entailed, but it surely would have been mentally scarring.

The chamber idea over the GPU's is somewhat interesting, but kind of a bandaid solution for a setup with lousy air circulation. Other than that... doesn't really catch my interest.

Well, we can tell where your mindset is at most of the time

Just going by exterior it looks like an Antec 1200 got it on with a CM690/NZXT hybrid! Too complicated for me, if I went water cooling I'd want to choose my own gear.

To each their own but I would not own this.
