Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000BWS Super Tower Chassis

If you do not plan to install the optional liquid cooling unit, you already have one tray you can use for little things. Thermaltake also includes an additional accessory tray which gets installed into a free 5.25" drive bay. While the use of 3.5" floppy drives has dropped, there are a large number of 3.5" devices still in use, so Thermaltake includes a simple 3.5" device to 5.25" drive bay adapter. Just to make sure it looks right, they have also included a face place that snaps around the device to make it look like part of the case.

Thermaltake has designed an additional location to install an included 140mm fan; between the front 3.5" hard drive cage and the motherboard. This will allow the air to be pulled across the hard drives from the front intake fan. I will install this fan to see whether it helps with the airflow.

There are a large number of additional accessories included with this case. First, there are three different types of cable ties. Approximately 25 of the standard cable ties, 9 of the ball and chain reusable cable ties, and 10 of the large heavy duty perma-mount cable loops. To install your 3.5" hard drives into the tool-less cage there are 14 tabs which pop into the screw holes of the hard drive and into a little lock on the side of the cage. In addition there are two grommets to protect water cooling tubing from getting cut by the holes cut into the steel. Finally there is a large bag of many screws and mounts of varying sizes.

The above right picture shows the included installation manual and a simple cloth to wipe off your fingerprints. The inclusion of the cloth shows the attention to detail many users have come to expect of Thermaltake. The manual covers almost every aspect of installing your system into this case.

There are seven 3.5" removable hard drive trays. These are simple plastic trays for you to place your hard drive onto and secure it to the tray with the plastic clips shown above. The below right picture shows the expansion slot tool-less clips. These pop out of the chassis when you open them to install your expansion cards. I really like that they come out of the chassis as it makes installing dual slot video cards much easier. Thermaltake also helped to make sure they would not run into a common problem of the clip interfering with the PCB on large cards by making the portion of the clip that hangs over the side of the slot very small.
