PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



With the explosion of the home theatre market in the past decade or so, it was inevitable that the personal computer would enter the fray at some point. After all, a well-designed PC with the proper hardware can do the work of a myriad of home theatre components, and do it as well or better than all but the most high-end equipment. So, where do you find one of these magic boxes that will solve all your home entertainment problems? If you’re like a lot of PC enthusiasts, you build it yourself. One of the first decisions anyone contemplating a project like this will have to make will be to choose a chassis to put all the goodies into. While some folks would be content with having a big, beige computer case sitting in the living room, a significant segment of this group wants something more sleek and stylish. Some of the small form factor cases on the market would seem to be a good choice here, but most of these offer limited flexibility with respect to motherboard, power supply and drive choices. Recently, Thermaltake has introduced the Tenor chassis, which addresses these issues and we’re going to take an in-depth look at this case here.

 

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS & COMPOSITION



The Tenor arrived from Thermaltake in one of their heavyweight cardboard cartons. A little worse for the wear and tear, the front of the carton gives us a preview of what’s to come.



Thermaltake uses the rear of the carton to showcase some of the many features of the Tenor chassis.



Having reviewed several cases from Thermaltake and ThermalRock, I’ve gotten used to seeing this packaging and it’s some of the best in the industry. While most cases come sandwiched between foam blocks, Thermaltake goes the extra mile and wraps their cases in a soft and lightweight, yet very tough, Tyvek-like material that gives excellent protection without scratching the finish. A zip-bag containing the manual and a cleaning cloth is taped to the case wrap. With a few exceptions, the manual is quite good and the cloth is useful for wiping off fingerprints during handling and installation.
