Winner of Thermaltake's modding contest As E., our case, cooling and peripheral editor, wasn't at Computex this year, I had the opportunity of meeting with most of the companies to see what's new. My first stop was Thermaltake, which had several new and upcoming products to show. To start off with external storage, Thermaltake had a USB 3.1 Type-C enclosure on display, which will be available later this year.
