Thermaltake has always been innovative with its entire product line, ranging from CPU heatsinks to its popular Hardcano series fan control modules. It's no wonder this company also strives in the case market.

The introduction of Thermaltake's Xaser line of cases brought about new and unique ideas in design and features. The original Xaser design was based on a few of Chenming series of desktop cases with added original features of its own, like the Hardcano fan control.

We first looked at a full sized Xaser III tower several months ago (you can read our review here). Since the Xaser III line made its debut, it has sent ripples through the case market as a high end enthusiast's dream. The most emphasized feature of the second series of Xasers is the totally screw-less design. Hold tight as we take an extensive look into what makes the VM3000A an attractive addition to Xaser's product line.

    Looks terrible, pc case design has come a long way since the beige box, but in this case I'd rather have a beige box any day.
    Skulls? is his being marketed at 15 year old Goth Rock fans?

    that has got to be the single most butch ugly implementation of a side window in a case i've ever seen, obviously a last second throw in with no thought or planning. disgusting. Reply

    Reading through everything in the review it seems like this is a lower end case then the original XIII line, was that your impression Purav?

    Less fans, less space and sharp edges- sounds like a step back for TT here.

    This case is the most hideous thing I have seen in a long time. What is the deal with PC case designs? Nearly every one of them is tacky and looks flat out cheap. Reply

    This is the same as the Enermax Titanium case. I don't know who the oem is. Mobo attaches with studs vey easily. Hopefully a new trend.Just pop it right in. It's only noisy if you have noisy fans. I have a 120 mm in the lower area. The psu is very tight buy my slk900a on my 8rda manages to fit. http://www.case-mod.com/store/product_info.php?pro... Reply

    You mention the inconvenience of having to remove add in cards to remove the motherboard tray, but why bother completely removing the tray unless I'm replacing the motherboard - hence removing the cards anyway? Of course, I've never had a removable tray that was easy enough to remove to justify taking it out for memory or even CPU changes. Reply
