Tt eSports is a new name in the gaming peripheral market, but as it's an offshoot of the more established Thermaltake brand, we were expecting good things.

We'd have preferred a few standard-sized dummy keys to blank off other annoying keys, such as Insert.

Since when is Insert of all things an annoying key?

Please tell me you're joking.

I built my brothers new gaming PC at the time in one of those about 2-3 years ago, and it wasn't all that horrible a case at the time, but it was still pretty cheap and cheerful. He still has it, gave it to his wife when he got a new one earlier this year. "CoolAll your life" seriously? That's the stupidest company slogan I've ever heard. And since you've mentioned the Frio I'll add this - I bought one last week to put in my overclocked i7 920 system because I was a bit sick of the plain Jane looks of the standard Titan Fenrir. I bought it purely based on the CPC review where it won a premium award. I amost bought a Coolermaster V8 instead, but it was out of stock. Anyway, the Frio arrived and I fitted it to my EVGA X58 classified motherboard. Several things to note.
- Too "plasticky". no need for it, it could be a great cooler but the quality, as always, is just not there.
- Wonky fins. If I take the fans off it and look at the angle of the fins in relation to the vertical heatpipes, it's blatantly obvious that every fin in the thing is mounted at an angle. Again, no build quality.
- Manual speed adjustable fans. Really? 3-pin fans with manual potentiometers on them instead of a PWM fan, since practically every motherboard worth anything these days has a PWM CPU fan header. Rubbish - I've already ordered a pair of PWM fans and a splitter for them so I can plug them into the motherboard header and have them controlled by the system, like they should be.
- It's too big. Yeah, bigger is more effective, but this thing actually hits the chipset heatsink fin array on my EVGA motherboard. It fits on the board by the skin of it's teeth. And this is a larger than normal board... I dread to think how many boards there are that it will not fit.
Sure, it's an improvement over previous Thermaltake coolers, and a step in the right direction... it may even be the most effective cooler when you compare it degree by degree to all the other coolers on the market, but IMHO Thermaltake still can't design and manufacture high quality components... just cheap, plasticky crap.
