Thermaltake also has included adjustable fan speed control for performance mode or silent mode. The fans are designed for the gamer meaning that they will have a fan speed of 600-800RPM but the surface area of the fans is large allowing for air circulation. There are four fans included with this case of 200-230mm size. There is room in the case for 7 HDDs and two SSD drives making it excellent for those wanting a lot of storage. With all of that airflow you can imagine this case will be very cool in operation.
