Thermaltake is known for innovation. Their Xaser series has become extremely popular in the past few years as they have updated their internal and external designs to keep up with its competitors.

Once in a while, there comes a time for change. This is where Thermaltake has decided to rethink the design of their case for a different market. They come up with a design that differs from their Xaser series of cases and looks to aim it towards a younger crowd who are concerned about looks as much as features and functions.

Thermaltake introduced the Tsunami Dream line of aluminum cases to target this crowd. They have implemented a completely new look with curves and shiny paint to create a sleek feel of a fast sports car. We go into more detail as we look at Thermaltake's new innovation...

    "With a price tag of around $100"

    Yeah, where? I clicked on the "AnandTech Deals" thing at the top of the page and saw nothing below $150....
