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...

    It looks like a nice case (except for the window which is just personal taste). Were there any worries about the longevity of the paint? Cars get scratched and it would seem a glossy black finish is going to scratch over time.

    I find the power supply issue intriguing in that I had no such problems in my CoolerMaster WaveMaster case even though I installed a large Enermax power supply unit (465W). I guess the WavemMaster is an old man of a case now, but it would have been nice to see it included in the benchmarks for this comparison.
