Thermaltake The Tower 100 Mini Goes Turquoise & Racing Green
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
Thermaltake has announced their new PC case and RAM… Or at least, some new variants of their existing models. Following the current market trend of stepping away from RGB, at least, to a certain extent, and giving us pure colours! The Tower 100 Mini Chassis and the TOUGHRAM RGB will now be available in two stunning new colours; Turquoise and followed by Racing Green. The new colour options will join the existing black, white and gold variants of each.
The Tower 100 and the TOUGHRAM RGB are both well known for their stunning aesthetics already. Furthermore, they’ve proven to be durable and reliable products, and in the colour process, none of that has been lost. Honestly, it is about damn time we got some really vibrant colours back in the PC market. I love RGB, but it really did turn most products into clones of each other.
Thermaltake Tower 100 & TOUGHRAM
The Tower 100 is the smaller version of Thermaltake’s monster-sized The Tower 900. Admittedly, I didn’t like the 900, it was just too big, but the 100 is just about the coolest case they currently produce. I actually reviewed it 6 months ago, and you can check that out here. The TOUGHRAM we’ve seen a few times, but recently, we did test the XG version here.
Vertical Body Design
The Tower 100 is a vertically designed case constructed with solid steel all around, the vertical design allows the chassis to have a smaller footprint, and helps to minimize obstruction to your gaming and workspace area. The vertical design also helps extract heat from the chassis by using a chimney effect, intaking cold air from the base and dispelling the heat via the top.
Tempered Glass Panels With Panoramic View
The three 4 mm tempered glass windows of The Tower 100 are thicker and more scratch resistant when compared to standard acrylic. It not only creates a panoramic view for displaying internal components but also gives users easy and quick access once the top panel and the three tempered glass windows are removed.
Excellent Dust Filtration
The Tower 100 has well-designed removal magnetic fan filters on the back, on the inner two sides, and at the inner bottom layer. At the base, the removable filters provide excellent dust protection and dirt reduction, ensuring a dust-free environment.
Sophisticated Space Design
Sophisticated space design maximizes the capacity of The Tower 100 for PC components support and helps tidy up cable management.
Hardware Support and Cooling Solutions
The Tower 100 has good hardware support. It can support a CPU cooler with a maximum height of 190 mm, VGA with maximum length of 330 mm, a power supply with a length of up to 180 mm, two 2.5″ SSDs with the side bracket, and two 2.5″ or two 3.5″ HDD at the rear (without rear fan). Although The Tower 100 is a Mini-ITX case, it is still optimized for good cooling. The case comes with two preinstalled 120 mm standard fans on top and at the rear for thermal extraction. Additionally, you can mount one extra 120 mm or 140 mm fan on the top of the PSU cover and a 120 mm All-in-One CPU cooler can be fitted on the top for water-cooling.
Price and Availability
While Thermaltake didn’t provide details, I would imagine the prices will be broadly similar to the existing products and will hit the market very soon indeed. We’ll check with Thermaltake and report back as soon as we hear more.
