Water Cooling

The case provides a hydraulic opening for its side panel, really impressive. The water cooling kit that comes with VB5001SNA model uses two 120 mm fans and a big 220 mm x 270 mm (8.66“ x 10.63“) radiator.

The radiator, the fans, the reservoir and the pump of the water cooling system are located on the case side door.

In Figure 6, you can see the CPU block, which is made of copper and has a transparent acrylic cover that glows blue when the system is turned on. On the same figure you can see that the video card used also has a water cooler block. This block, however, doesn’t come with the system, and Thermaltake installed it just to show us Tai-Chi working with all the features it can provide.

In Figure 6 you can also see that this case uses plastic clips for holding expansion boards, so you can install and remove daughterboards without using a screwdriver.
