External Impressions of the Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

 

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

With the Chaser MK-1 out of the packing we can see it survived its journey to us unharmed. The Chaser MK-1 has rugged looks.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 front panel

At the top front and center is the power button, warping around it is a logo that lights up when the system is powered up. Behind the power button is the external hard drive dock.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 usb ports

To the right are the front panel data connections: 2x USB2, 1x eSATA, and 2x USB3.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 case controls

To the right are the LED on/off switch, fan speed high/low switches, reset switch and audio connections.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 top vent

Behind the drive dock are the top exhaust vents.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 case front

The front of the Chaser MK-1 is mostly mesh. The 5.25 drive bay covers are removed from the front. They also have blue accents to them. This may be a turn off to some but, as we will see, the blue accent is used throughout the case.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 lower front

On the lower front the mesh has some details stamped into it. It resembles the logo around the power switch at the top.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 right panel

The right side of the case is blank; there is a design stamped into the side panel.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 left side

On the left side there is a window and a side intake port that can accept a 120, 140, or 200mm fans.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 headset holder

In the upper front corner is a fold out rest for holding a gaming headset.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 rear panel

On the back of the Chaser MK-1 we can see it has 3 water cooling pass through ports at the top, and under that is the rear 140mm exhaust fan, then the 8 expansion slot covers and rear vent. At the bottom is the power supply area.

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 case feet

On the bottom of the case are 4 server style feet that swivel out to give the Chaser MK-1 stability. They also raise the case off the floor 35mm, or 1.3 inches, to allow for air flow under the case. Under the power supply is a removable dust filter that can be removed from the rear of the case for cleaning.
