Thermaltake are quite the fan of multiple editions for their range of PC chassis, and they're always keen to take a slightly different design choice if they feel there's demand for it. With Liquid Cooling once again fashionable amongst PC enthusiasts TT have started pushing versions of their popular cases with their own pre-installed liquid cooling systems (which they handily identify as LCS) to augment their cooling possibilities straight out the box.

Latest among these LCS-enabled cases is the Chaser MK-I LCS. As the name implies it's based on the Chaser MK-I that we reviewed back in May and awarded a very solid Silver based on features and strikingly aggressive looks, so there's certainly nothing wrong with the base chassis they're upgrading. The included and installed BigWater 850GT cooling solution's specifications are:

- Dual 5.25 Drive Bay design: Pre-built liquid cooling system
- Quick Disconnect Connector: Automatic non-spill valves, robust material one hand operation
- 240mm Motorsports Radiator:
(A) Dimple Tube Technology with louvered fin radiator
(B) Dual silent 120mm variable resistor fan spinning from 1000~2000RPM
- High-performance Liquid Pump: Powerful DC 12V liquid pump (500L/hr)
- Pure Copper Water Block: For Intel LGA1366/1156/775 and AMD FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2
- Flow meter: Accurate monitoring and fast response
- Reservoir: Contains 330 c.c. of liquid capacity
- Water tube: Durable transparent UV tube (3/8”)

The Chaser MK-I itself supports mATX and ATX motherboard form factors, has an internal USB 3.0 header, and even with LCS has plenty of room for optical drives and HDD's. Support for long VGA cards, such as the AMD 6990 or nVidia 590, isn't affected by the inclusion of the BigWater 850. No news yet on pricing but 240mm radiator solutions don't come cheap; like any liquid cooling solution this probably isn't one for the budget-end of the buyer spectrum.
