The ThermalTake Chaser MK-I has a massive array of features making it an attractive prospect. Its façade has vast disarray of lines that blend plastic and mesh together. Despite its incredibly busy design and unusually colored accents, everything seems to work on some level.

Thermaltake is a company that needs no introductions. To be honest, the reason most of us know the name is because you've probably, at some point in the past decade, had one ( or more ) of its products installed your system. In the early days, the...

I have been a fan of Thermaltake for a long time, and cases like the Chaser MK-1 will keep me coming back. It is extremely well built, and the design of the case flows really well. Including dual USB 3.0 ports is great, and something that should...

Overall the case has demonstrated outstanding characteristics, making it a worthy buy. The overall performance and cooling capability of the case even at stock settings is capable of providing any high end enthusiast system with sufficient cooling....

Saying the Chaser MK-1 has a unique design is an understatement. If its polarizing looks work for you, though, you’ll find a wealth of features that will make this chassis a pleasure to build a system inside....

It’s always tough to rank products in roundups like these, especially when each one has merit, as is the case with each of the products we reviewed here. Truly, depending on your taste and needs, you could purchase any one of these cases and be...

I would have to say Thermaltake has done very well with the Chasar MK-1. The build quality is good and the cooling options are extensive, while cable management is also very good. You may not get too excited over the 200mm color change fans, but they...

Normally, I don't start off this part of the review by mentioning the price - but I will for the Chaser MK-1. One can be picked up at major online retailers for ~$160, which puts it quite high up on the price scale. This is the only problem that I...

One of the areas of the Chaser MK-I that impressed me the most was the tool free design for the drive bays. On many other cases, the 5.25" bays may require drive aligning for pushing in buttons, or pulling tension clips. Many of those tension clips...

There is no doubt the Chaser MK-I is an oversize full tower design. What is more surprising is that it still maintains the style and features of a good enthusiast case. The addition of the BlacX hard drive bay is an attractive feature for those of...

Thermaltake has had plenty of ups and downs in its company history. Having been on the market for such a long time we have seen really good cases and then not so good ones. In recent history it feels like the company did not manage to turn too many...

The Thermaltake MK-1 is not a case designed for the majority of computer builders. Instead, it is built exclusively for extreme gamers that are looking for a case with an aggressive visual style and room for the most high-end of components. On these...

It is great to see Thermaltake come out with a reasonably priced case aimed at gamers, modders and enthusiasts. As I said in the opening of this review the Level 10 and Level 10 GT are a little pricey and the Armor cases are more on the lower end. ...

I don't talk about price but I thought it necessary to mention now that the Chaser MK-I only comes in at a modest $159.99. With all the features considered, this case is definitely worth the asking price. The Chaser MK-I has a solid SECC steel...

Quality (30% of the total score) The Chaser MK-I is a well designed and made tower case. The steel body is very sturdy and virtually unbreakable, able to withstand any kind of abuse. Most of the faceplate is thick plastic which should easily last...

Now that we are finished with the Chasar MK-I, we must admit we were surprised at how well it actually did in our testing. Thermaltake made the sky blue color work, using the subtle accents throughout the case. Now, if you are not a huge fan of that...

The Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 case proved to be quite interesting. The MK-1, like the Level 10 GT, is positioned well to appeal to enthusiasts. The price is however close to half at around $170 USD. This cost reduction is achieved through using a lot...

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away... the Thermaltake Empire ruled the cooling market. As many of you may know, such a phrase became known throughout the world in May 1977 as the phenomenon Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope hit the theaters. The...

The Thermaltake Chaser MK-I is clearly targeted to the gamer that goes to LAN parties, and it excels at this application because of its three different kinds of anti-theft mechanisms. It is more expensive than good mid-tower models, but we think it is...

The Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 is big and bold surely, but under it all it’s a well designed and aesthetically pleasing case. There’s plenty of room for even the largest of video cards and several hard drives to make sure you’ve got room...
