As they normally do, Thermaltake had a number of new products being shown in their booth. With world economies still shaky, TT has concentrated on adding value to their existing lines of products, while evolving them to meet consumer demands without introducing big changes in cost.
One such product is the highly popular BlackX external drive. Now dubbed BlackX 5G, it introduces support for USB 3.0! Anyone with a full size 3.5″ drive should see dramatic improvements in speed with the BlackX 5G.
Also updated is the Thermaltake Lan Box Lite. Now named A30, it has a few changes to keep gamers happy. Most obvious is the look of the case, it now has an Armor look and feel to it. Some will like and some will not, overall it’s a decent looking mATX gamer case.
Inside, the drive bay location has been pushed to the side so it doesn’t obstruct the intake fan. There is now plenty of free space on the peripheral side to accommodate long graphics cards such as the Radeon HD 5970. A larger fan has been added to the back of the case to help expel the heat that can be generated by all of the tightly packed components.
The last item that we wanted to show you today is the Jing fan. This fan is 120mm in size and has no surround. Thermaltake says that this helps to reduce the noise generated. It is a very low rpm design and has a sealed bearing to prevent dust, which helps to lengthen it’s life.
