Thermaltake has announced a pair of new chassis accommodating up to E-ATX motherboards.
Both Versa T26/T27 share the same frame weighing 8.21kg and measuring 485mm x 225mm x 464.2mm in size, with the front panel design being their only differentiating factor. The T26 features a mix of mesh and tempered glass in a diagonal arrangement, while the T27 has an airflow-focused panel with perforated T-shaped intake cut-outs resembling Thermaltake’s brand logo. Both are an acquired taste.
A detachable 4mm tempered glass side panel allows you to showcase your masterpiece, illuminated by three built-in 120mm 5V aRGB fans, capable of syncing with popular motherboard software suites such as Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, etc. For those who believe there can never be too much light, four more fans can be added for maximum bling.
Speaking of cooling, AIO support is more than enough with space for up to a 360mm radiator in the front and top plus a 120mm in the back. Needless to say, cooling shouldn’t be a problem. Those who choose to go with air coolers should note that height clearance is 175mm.
To house your liquid-cooled CPU, mini-ITX, micro-ATX, ATX, and E-ATX motherboard sizes are supported. Two 3.5in plus two 2.5in (or four 2.5in) drive bays should take care of any potential data hoarders.
Graphics card length is limited to 350mm if a radiator is installed or 380mm if not, with the possibility to install vertically if the heart desires. At the same time, PSU size can be up to 160mm if an HDD cage is installed or 200mm otherwise.
Thermaltake has most bases covered, but it’s the top I/O panel that falls short. Both chassis provide two USB 3.0 Type-A, a pair of 3.5mm audio jacks, power, restart and RGB control buttons, but no forward-looking USB Type-C.
