    Looks like Thermaltake getting new ideas about their coolers ..

    The Beetle: http://www.thermaltake.com/demo/cl-p...e/cl-p0086.htm

    This thing looks really really like the Asus StarIce eh? Quite funny that recently TT got some funny looking coolers, like the water cooler somebody pointed out some days ago

    Is it just me, or does that cooler look like an engine of a pod-racer?

    Thermaltake are doing a good job of copying other people's ideas? Have you seen their version of the Zalman Reserator?

    Err, other way round folks, the Asus Star Ice is just a copy of the Thermaltake Silent Tower with a different shroud & fan on it. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same company making both of them for Thermaltake & Asus.

    Thats just plain tacky. When I build my PC in about a years time (i.e. When I can afford to!), I'll have neon blue stuff, it looks so much classier.

    lol, says the guy who wants a flashing red Rolls Royce Trent 800.

    You've got to admit, blue neon inside a black case is the most stylish. My friend just bought a CM Stacker, and with black sides and the window, all with blue cathodes, its awsome.

    It looks sexy isn't it (literally). And hey, they have anew case, just came out. The Thermaltake Armor VA8000 (Stacker replica anyone ??). It looks gorgeous , says support both ATX and BTX (with and optinal pack i think), still cannot figure out how they do that.
