Building any PC—especially a liquid-cooled system—is a bit of a science project. So why pretend it isn't? That seems to be the idea behind Thermaltake's new The Tower 900 Series chassis, the first modder-friendly case in the company's TT Premium line. Initially shown off back in May at Computex, The Tower 900 Series is now available for pre-order.
Built in collaboration with Watermod France, this chassis features a distinctive vertical main chamber surrounded on three sides by 5-mm thick tempered glass. The roomy enclosure makes room for extensive cooling hardware: it can accept 260-mm-tall CPU coolers, two 560-mm liquid-cooling radiators, or a dual-loop liquid-cooling design. The Tower can also handle one 5.25-inch drive, six 2.5- or 3.5-inch drives in its combo cages, and two 2.5-inch drives on dedicated sleds.
Thermaltake says the vertical-mounting design will help reduce graphics-card sag, especially on systems with multiple liquid-cooled graphics cards. The case can be fully dismantled, too, ensuring there aren't any corners that you simply can't reach whether you're working on a new build or doing regular maintenance.
The Tower 900 will be available on the TT Premium website in mid-December for $249 in both black and white editions, and it should also be widely available on sites like Amazon and Newegg starting in early January.
