Thermaltake CES 2007 Cases

Thermaltake during the CES expo released two PC cases for performance-minded gamers: both the Bach Vx and Soprano Dx (shown) include external SATA (eSATA) ports for attaching external hard drives to the computer without the speed penalty often suffered through USB 2 or FireWire. Cooling is just as important, says the case designer. The Bach and Soprano share an unusually large 140mm front fan, drawing in cool air that can be quickly expelled by a rear 120mm unit. The cases also have room for two of NVIDIA's larger GeForce 8800 GTX cards and have tool-free slots for drives and expansion cards.

The two mid-towers are primarily separated by priorities, according to the company. The Soprano is designed primarily for aesthetics and features a curving aluminum front panel, while the more utilitarian Bach deliberately introduces gaps in its flat aluminum surface for quicker air intake. Thermaltake is selling both cases today in versions with or without side windows and 400W power supplies, though pricing is unavailable.
