Rated 4 out of 5 by SithAfrikaan Great Price, Great Performance
Would get 5 stars if it came with enough molex-to-fan converters for the amount of fans the case has. Runs quietly, and very cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ddoc This product is great
I'm delighted with the case, it replaced an aged Thermaltake Tsunami which itself is quite a big box though, it always seemed to struggle for space regards long graphics cards and 1000w psu's. The Chaser has plenty of room for an R9 290 and as the psu is now on the bottom, it will easily take psu's that are long - see Galaxy 1000. The hot-swap feature is fantastic allowing you to do away with external usb HDD's! The box is quiet when not under load and, even when under load it is not too noisy. supplied with the usual plethora of fixings, back plate and even a couple of SATA cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrunkMonk74 Excellent cooling case
My first time building a custom PC. I had bought an Alienware PC and I'd upgraded so many components all I needed was a new MOBO and case I could put together my rig. So that's what I did.
After a lot of research I settled on this new case from Thermaltake. The main reason for my choice was the 200mm side fan. This case comes with 3 x 200mm fans and 1 x 120mm fan already installed. 2 of the 200mm fans (side and front) are setup as intake fans and the other 200mm fan (top) and the 120mm fan (back) are setup as exhaust fans.
The side 200mm fan is a god send for my 2xGTX 680 FTW 4Gb GPU's. In my old Alienware case these cards would heat up under load to over 70c. This would mean they would automatically down clock to protect the cards.
With this case and the side 200mm fan set as an intake fan, sucking in cooler air from the outside and blowing directly onto the cards, my GPU's now sit at a much healthier 55-60c under load. This has made a HUGE difference to my gaming meaning I'm able to keep the cards OC'd and stable.
Overall this cases does a fantastic job at keeping my temps low. I have a i7-3960X CPU installed, and this case works great with the liquid cooler I have installed, helping to cool the liquid in the rad, and therefore keeping CPU temps down.
Case is raised from the floor so that if you fitted the additional 120/140mm fan at the base of the case, it can pull in air with greater efficiency.
The one down side is the room on the right hand side of the case for the cable management. I have the OCZ 1250W PSU installed. This PSU comes with some quite thick modular cabling, and it's a little tight getting it all installed on the right side.
Despite this (as I'd have to say that at least partially this is down to OCZ cable management) I still rate this case as a 5 star. The cooling and airflow in the case is fantastic. It keeps all my components nice and cool. And it achieves this with minimal noise, the low levels of sound really are amazing.
Fantastic product matched by Scan's pricing and service.
