  1. Thermaltake has unveiled a new desktop PC case with a built-in hard drive dock. Fittingly named "Dokker," the mid-tower chassis has a top-mounted HDD cradle that lets you easily attach and remove 2.5 and 3.5-inch SATA drives. Along with that handy feature, the $65 enclosure has all the trimmings you'd expect in a budget performance chassis.

    Oh man!! I loved it already! Just what I was looking for! Mid tower, budget, room and, the most important, a modest front panel! This is it! this is the worthy replacement! I don't really need the HDD cradle on the top, but I can live with it!

    Can't say as I like the placing of that docking mechanism. There are a lot of computer desks out there that won't allow the additional 3-5" standing up like that. Think it would have made more sense placing it on the side or in the front of the case.

    I'll stick with my Cooler Master Cosmos S thank you.

    It has the Mesh, Size and Fan placements but it better made and doesn't have a hard drive sticking out the top of it.

    I'm sorry, but that has to be the worst placement for a hard drive I have ever seen, just put a hot swappable bay at the front for Christ sake!

    I actually like that, and the dock would be handy for me as well. But its not a super tower, and I can't fit a 3x120mm radiator in there unfotunately, so thats out then. :(

    If only it was a super tower....

    I've got one of their older super tower cases, a black Zaser III, with red trim up front. Knowing Thermaltake, I'm sure they'll fit that dock to their new tower cases soon enough.

    Very nice especially for the price, but if I buy a new case soon, it'll be the CM 690 II. My original is getting old
     
  9. I'm quite happy with my CM HAF 922; affordable, roomy, tremendous airflow, mostly tool-less design...very nice.

    You guys have to remember this is a $65 case. It wasn't too long ago that you couldn't get this kind of feature-set and quality in anything within that price range. The HD placement is a bit odd though; for cases on the floor, it makes sense, but then the USB, and audio jacks aren't at the top as well. Still, this is a very nice case for a budget build.
