Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition Mid-Tower Chassis Review

/ 6 years ago

You’ve probably heard over the past few months that white is the new black and I’m not just talking about technology, but every aspect of the market. White cars are becoming even more frequent on the roads, and Apple have revoluntionised the tech market with their white products by giving the consumer a choice of a black or white iPod, iPhone or iPad and over time, computer chassis have gone this way too.

Thermaltake are a leader in chassis manufacturing and have caused a big stir in the channel with their white versions of the Level 10 GT among others and branded them under the “Snow Edition” branding. This brings us to the current date with their latest Commander MS-I Snow Edition chassis which offers an eSports extreme design in a funky new colour scheme.

The Commander MS-I Snow Edition gives users the latest chassis technology with some unique styling to give the user the very best aesthetics, while not skimping out on functionality with an included USB 3.0 internal header, support for high-end graphics cards and a rear 120mm silent fan with a stylish blue LED.

From a first glance, this case seems to offer everything that a mainstream user wanting to delve into the enthusiast/extreme markets needs. Did we also mention that it’s remarkably cheap at under £50 in the UK? What more could a consumer ask for?

While we get under way with stripping things down, take a look at the features and key specifications below allowing you to get a good understanding on what this funky case is all about.


  • eSPORTS extreme design now in white
  • Bottom-placed PSU design for easy installation
  • Supports high-end graphic cards up to 12.5”/32cm
  • Rear 120mm silent fan with blue LED
  • Built-in latest USB3.0 SuperSpeed internal header

    What are the two lights below the power button for?

    I had a small issue with placing a liquid cooler in the case, but I did it. I was able to install the Thermaltake 2.0 Water Performer using the exhaust vent on the bottom of the case. As long as you don’t use and oversized psu such as a 1000 watt unit when it is not needed, the radiator should fit in there no problem. Also, a 120mm fan bolted right in using the supplied screws in the front with no issues. This case is great if you know what you are doing and don’t overkill some aspects of the build such as a ridiculous sized psu or cpu cooler. My PC has:

    Thermaltake Commander MS-i Snow Edition Case
    Asus M5A99X EVO AM3+ Motherboard
    AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz processor
    Thermaltake 2.0 Water Performer Liquid Cooling
    16GB Kingston HyperX RAM
    240GB Kingston HyperX SSD
    320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD
    EVGA GeForce GT 610
    5.25 Kingwin Hot Swappable 3.5 & 2.5 HDD Bay
    460w Coolermaster Power Supply

    2x 120mm Fans (Rear Exhaust & Front Intake)

  5. yeah, 120 fan in front goes like this pal, took about 1 minute to figure out this brainbuster.
