In early January, Thermaltake held a 2022 Thermaltake Expo virtual exhibition that showcased many new products, from cases to RAM. In this material we will briefly talk about each of the new products that the company showed at a virtual exhibition.
Let’s start with new cases for gaming systems, because they have emerged as the most popular among Thermaltake’s new products. The Divider 550 TG Ultra model is a classic mid-tower with an interesting feature – a 3.9-inch display is located at the top of the front of the case, on which you can display either an image (including a GIF) or useful information on the system performance.
Otherwise, this is a roomy chassis for a gaming rig that can house really big components, including huge flagship graphics cards and massive CPU cooling systems. The case comes with four fans, three of which feature customizable ARGB lighting. If you wish, you can attach the coolant cooler instead.
The housing with the speaking name The Tower 500, on the other hand, is made in the shape of a tower and offers an all-round view of the main components of the PC. The novelty is an intermediate model between the huge The Tower 900 and the relatively compact The Tower 100. The case offers space for an E-ATX motherboard, graphics cards up to 355 mm long and really large CPU cooling systems – up to 275 mm high. LSS installation is also supported.
Finally, the Core P6 TG was presented in new colors: Racing Green and Turquoise Turquoise. The peculiarity of the products is that they can be used in closed and open configurations. For the conversion it is sufficient to remove the panels at the back, front and top. The case is very spacious: it can accommodate boards up to ATX, graphics cards up to 458 mm long and large CPU coolers. LSS with large radiators are also supported.
Thermaltake also introduced the new Toughpower PF1 power supplies with a capacity of 1050 and 1200 W. These are fully modular, high-efficiency analog power supplies that meet the requirements of the 80 PLUS Platinum standard. They are equipped with 140mm fans with customizable ARGB lighting, and the backlight also adorns the side panel with the name of the PSU. The innovations are characterized by low voltage ripple (up to 30 mV) and precise voltage regulation (up to ±2%). They only use Japanese capacitors that can withstand temperatures of up to 105°C.
Thermaltake has not forgotten about new cooling systems, in particular, new components for custom liquid cooling systems were presented: Pacific MX2 Ultra, W8 and W9 water blocks, as well as a Pacific TF3 surveillance model.
The Pacific W8 and W9 are classic water coolers, the former is made entirely of nickel plated copper while the latter has a nickel plated copper base and acrylic cover. New products are aimed at people who do not need RGB lighting. Water blocks are compatible with AMD and Intel processors, including the latest models of the latter for the LGA 1700 socket.
Pacific MX2 Ultra is, so to speak, the opposite of the strict models described above. This processor water block is distinguished by the presence of a 2.1-inch round screen, on which you can view either information about the state of the CPU (temperature, frequency, power consumption) or images, including animated ones. The base is also made of nickel-plated copper.
Finally, the Pacific TF3 module is capable of displaying the three main indicators of an LSS system: fluid pressure, its temperature, and the temperature inside the PC case. The novelty is mounted on a standard seat for a 120mm fan.
Other interesting Thermaltake innovations in the field of cooling are TOUGHFAN RGB 12/14 and Riing Trio 12 RGB Transform fans. The former are available in 120mm and 140mm diameter versions and feature increased static pressure, making them a good solution for coolant or air cooler applications. TOUGHFAN RGB 12/14 have a maximum rotation speed of 2000 rpm (controlled by PWM) and a low noise level. Plus, its frame is richly decorated with customizable RGB lighting.
The Riing Trio 12 RGB Transform, on the other hand, is characterized by the fact that it comes with two detachable impellers, with the wings pointing in different directions. This way you can easily change the direction of the airflow to blow the air in or vice versa. This fan also has a speed of up to 2000 rpm and is decorated with a ring light.
There were also sets of TOUGHRAM RC DDR5 RAM modules. They consist of two modules of 16 GB each, ie the total volume is 32 GB. DDR5-4800, DDR5-5200 and DDR5-5600 versions are offered. It is also noted that the new items are compatible with Thermaltake’s Floe RC and Floe RC Ultra series LSS.
Finally, a few words about the new peripherals. Thermaltake has introduced the ARGENT K6 RGB low-profile mechanical keyboard aimed at gamers. The novelty uses Cherry MX Red or Silver switches with a reduced travel. It features RGB lighting and a magnetic wrist pad.
Along with the keyboard, the Damysus RGB gaming computer mouse debuted in wired (USB-C) and wireless (Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz) versions. The first uses a PixArt PMW 3389 sensor with a resolution of up to 16,000 DPI and the second uses a PixArt PMW 3370 with 19,000 DPI. Both versions are lightweight and ergonomically designed.
Thermaltake also introduced its flagship gaming chair ARGENT E700 in new colors – brown, yellow and turquoise. Previously this chair was presented in orange, white, black, grey, blue and green. Like all other ARGENT E700, the novelties have an ergonomic design developed by the FA Porsche Studio and are made of high-quality materials: real leather, aluminum and steel. Various settings are supported for maximum convenience.
