15 Case Power Tower Round-Up


  • Integrated fan-speed controller
  • Edges filed down
  • Sturdy case
  • Sturdy front door, 180 degree hinge, lockable
  • Ships with five 80 mm system fans
  • HDD carriage rotated by 90 degrees
  • Room for a PCI long card
  • All drives have rails with vibration absorption


  • Weight
  • Graphics card installation
  • Separate device connectors for many system fans

The front door opens by up to 180 degrees.

In sum, the Xaser V5000A is definitely not the case to lug to a LAN party every day; its sturdy construction is designed more for stationary use. Thermaltake will have to remedy the graphics-card blunder fairly quickly; other than that, the case is well-designed.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
