Computex 2016: Thermaltake CaseMOD Being Mass Produced, RGB Power Supply and more
As some of you may already know Thermaltake has been running the Thermaltake CaseMOD invitational, with a total prize pool of 15k, at their computex booth, they’ve displayed the finalists builds! One of the most interesting builds from last year is “TheTower” by the owner of WaterMod, Mathieu Heredia who gave a speech on his experience there.
“Every time I mod, I try to do something different from my other friends and modders. When I was invited to the Thermaltake CaseMOD competition, I completely rethought the Core X9. I wanted to build fully functional case with a unique design, and in the end I created Project The Tower. I was surprised when Thermaltake recognized the spirit of this project, and was even more shocked when they decided to mass produce it. Thank you Thermaltake for making my dreams come true. I hope that this design collaboration will be a great success!”
Yes, you read that right, Thermaltake will be mass producing one of their modders case designs, pretty awesome right? Also CEO of Thermaltake Kenny Lin had this to add.
“At Thermaltake, we have positioned ourselves as a key player in the
Casemod market. We are always on the lookout for modding enthusiasts whose
spirit is consistent with our company values. It is a great honor for us to
announce our strategic cooperation with Mathieu and Watermod France. We
complement each other, and share the same values of Excellent Quality, Unique
Design, Diverse Combinations and Boundless Creativity, to provide a high
performance PC product for every enthusiast.”
An entry from this year we found quite interesting was the TT D3sk by L3pje a case modder from the Netherlands known for his Desk PC’s, using two Thermaltake Core P5 and a lot of radiators. He’s built one of the most visually pleasing mods we’ve seen, if you would like to see more images you can see the post he shared on reddit
