Computex 2015 - Thermaltake

At the Thermaltake stand we were first introduced to the company's smart mouse and keyboard products. The Theron Plus mouse and a version of the Poseidon Z keyboard can be used with Android and iOS apps (some versions are still in devleopment) that will track clicks, APM, lift off count, distance covered and build up a heatmap of your play style. One instance of the Tt eSPORTS Plus+ Professional app can be used with a mouse and keyboard at the same time, and users can share their data and compare their own with other players, including esports professionals.

Thermaltake has also recently released the Suppressor F51, its first go at a silent chassis in some time. It comes with two different side panel options – a windowed one or a blank one with a fan mount and noise suppressing material. It has a dual layer dust filtration system up front and 65mm of clearance in the roof for radiator set-ups. The front can also be used for water-cooling once you've removed the necessary drive cages.

We were also shown an early prototype of the follow up to the Suppressor, though were only allowed to photograph the new, extra room for cable management and the redeisgned drive trays behind the tray – there are now four 2.5in trays stacked at the front.

A couple of mods on display also caught our eye – the scratchbuilt Thermalthor and the Core X 2 Furious Tower MOD, both by a Thai fisherman called Suchao Prowphong who apparently only has fairly basic tools to work with – impressive work, we're sure you'll agree.

Next up, some massive additions to the Core family of cases, the Core W100 and Core W200 (which also has a server edition where you can have a redundant PSU system), as well as the Core PW100 and Core PW200 stackable units. As you can see, they're absolute beasts, capable of housing huge water-cooling setups and the biggest radiators. The W200 can house two full-size ATX systems, and it's even possible to install a third system, albeit a mini-ITX one. They're very remniscent of the CaseLabs monsters 8Pack uses in his own systems.

The Core W cases are expected by the end of the year, and will be used to launch a new brand, Thermaltake Premium, described by the company as its Lexus. The idea is to have an only Premium only shop that will also sell the company's water-cooling parts.

The final thing we saw was the new family of Riing fans (yes, it's spelt like that). Unlike other LED fans, these have a circular ring around the edge of the casing which is lit by just two LEDs. It gives them a very even glow all the way round and avoids the typical four points of light that you usually get. They were on display in a number of the cases and systems and certainly looked the part – we can see them getting pretty popular with you modding types.
