Thermaltake Armor+ LS and ESA
With the success of the Armor full tower launched over two years ago, Thermaltake is introducing the most powerful version in the Armor family, the new Armor+ Chassis. While all the essence of Armor has been maintained, Armor+ comes with many market leading features that are never seen in any Chassis on the market today. With the release of previous online preview that left gamers tingle with excitements; Thermaltake is launching the exclusive website of Armor+ with global market availability schedules today!
With extra careful concerns on the user experiences, not only the 5.25", 3.5" devices and PCI slots are designed tool-free, but the further careful touch on the motherboard tray and cable management functions also enhanced the installation convenience. Moreover, Armor+ offers superb ventilation with the entire body metal grilled and well organized fan cooling system managing CPU, VGA and HDD thermal independently for optimized system airflow.
Thermaltake is well known for its innovative and creative Chassis, Cooler, and Power Supply among enthusiasts worldwide; the products are not only preferred by gamers and enthusiasts, they are often being imitated by industry competitors. With such popularity among end-users and prestigious reputation in the industry, Thermaltake announces today its endorsement of the new Enthusiast System Architecture (ESA) industry with plans to introduce ESA-certified components in the near future.
"ESA is an open standard that enables components such as chassis, power supplies, and water cooling systems to communicate status and control in real-time." said Waleed Zamel, Technical Marketing Manager at NVIDIA. "ESA-compliant applications provide enthusiasts with unprecedented software control to achieve better performance, optimal thermal and acoustic operating environments. By providing ESA-compliant Chassis, Liquid Cooler, and Power Supplies, our partner Thermaltake is enabling users to exploit the full potential of the hardware. This kind of engineering cooperation is targeted to enable our mutual enthusiast customers to push the technology to new heights."
Peter Pan, General Manager of Thermaltake comments, "Thermaltake has spent the past 7 years in developing enthusiast-related chassis, coolers, and power supplies. We are excited about the development of ESA, and believe it will create a synergy within the PC component industry to stimulate the growth of gaming and DIY market and bring it to a whole new level."
Thermaltake BigWater 780 ESA Water-Cooling
There were several different products introduced at the Thermaltake exhibit at CES 2008... strike that, there were too many! The HTPC platform is still in demand just enough for Thermaltake to produce two new models: the DS-102 which features a touchscreen LCD at an incredably expensive price tage, and the much more budget-friendly DH101 HTPC ATX Case VF7001BNS which we have just finished testing. In addition to these two items, literally dozens more occupied the Tt booth. But there were only two other new products that really caught my attention, one of which was the Thermaltake BigWater 780 ESA edition.
Thermaltake offers wide range of ESA-compliant products to enthusiasts who want to be the trendsetter in PC industry; Xaser VI, Armor+, and Armor of chassis, BigWater 780e of liquid cooler, plus Toughpower series of power supply all supports ESA technology and will be available in Q1 of 2008 for users to purchase in retail channels. Xaser VI, Armor+ and Toughpower series also are all honored to be designated as WCG 2007 Official Product. With endorsement from the largest e-Sport even worldwide, Thermaltake's ESA-compliant products will offer enthusiasts the highest performance, the quietest and most reliable PC platform.
