Thermaltake's Chaser MK-I LCS Case with Liquid Cooling

By - Source: Thermaltake | B 14 comments

Designed for the e-sports gamer, Thermaltake is launching a new chassis with a built-in liquid cooling system.

Monday Thermaltake revealed its plans to release a liquid-cooled version of its Chaser MK-I full-tower chassis. So far actual pricing and availability is unknown, but the new Chaser MK-I LCS will supposedly launch this fall featuring a built-in Bigwater 850GT Liquid-Cooling solution.

"The integrated LCS is the new generation drive bay liquid cooling system, consisting of an all-inclusive drive bay unit and intelligent interconnecting water block with the robust material non-spill quick connectors offers an effortless installation," the company said Monday. "The slim water block was developed with pure copper base that maximizes the thermal efficiency. Also, with dual 120-mm fans and the 240-mm Dimple Tube Technology radiator increases the turbulence within the radiator to perform maximum cooling action."

Thermnaltake added that the liquid cooling system will also feature a Breath Lighting effect and a P500 pump which pushes 500L/H of water to improve the overall cooling efficiency and performance level. Other components in the setup will include a Motorsports radiator, an ultra quiet pump, a 12-cm blue LED fan and a water reservoir, all of which will be pre-installed inside the drive bay unit to achieve maximum performance.

Built with the e-sports gamer in mind, the chassis itself will sport two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a top-mounted HDD hit-swap docking station, innovative 5.25-inch & 3.5-inch tool-free bays with an anti-vibration mechanism, a Combat Headset holder, a heightened foot stand to enhance airflow, dual ColorShift front intake fans and CableClear cable management. It will also provide enough interior real estate to support up to a 18-cm CPU cooler with 3-way SLI/ATI Crossfire graphics cards measuring up to 33-cm long.

    I don't particularly care for Thermaltake designs, but this looks pretty sweet. A halfway decent water cooling solution too, better than a lot of the AIO coolers I see bundled with some cases. Question is, can they price it to sell?

    It's the same reservoir and a new pump that they had earlier for just separate sale as a product in itself and they somehow managed to discontinue it.

    Thermaltake watercooling has been nothing short of disastrous in the past...Big Water kits leaked or corroded due to aluminum components mixed with brass and copper in the loop. Aluminum should never be used for PC watercooling...at all. TT pumps have also been notoriously weak, pushing minimal flow and very low head pressure through the system.

    I really laugh when a company releases a 'case with built in water cooling' and don't educate the end user that you will need more than a 240 radiator to cool a CPU and GPU...or even 2 or 3. You really should use a 240 (minimum) for EACH CPU or GPU in the loop.

    Yet another overstyled funny looking design from Thermaltake. The case might have great features under all that gaudiness but I wouldn't want to look at that thing every day.

    Too much bling. I get that 15 year old gamers want their cases to look like bad taste christmas trees, but I would love a sober, elegant case for a change.

    The case lacks elegance so it isn't something I'd want, but the built in water cooling loops are attractive.

    gento1I love my iPad but this is one of the most utterly pointless ideas I have heard for a while.


    Yeahp, we can all definitely see the relationship between this case and your iPad.
