ThermalRock's latest attempt at designing an elegant, unique, and technologically impressive computer chassis comes in way of the Eclipse Tower Series. Based upon the ThermalRock Circle Full Tower Series, the Eclipse continues with roughly the same front bezel CD theme while offering improvements and functionality similar to that found in the Thermaltake Soprano. Will the ThermalRock Eclipse meet the expectations of gamers not only in terms of appearance but also with the build quality and features? On the other hand, enthusiasts may be better off waiting for the new revision that will actually create an operational CD drive in the same location, at least according to our sources at this year's Computex Taipei event.

Features:

· Glamorous all aluminum case design
· Swappable CD storage
· Dual 120 mm Silent Front and Back Chassis Fan
· Stylish transparent side window (Optional)
· Security Lock for Front & Side Panel
· Retractable Foot Stands

Much like the packaging from Thermaltake, the ThermalRock Eclipse comes tightly packaged in a rather thick cardboard container. The case was padded with a fair amount of Styrofoam to protect the chassis and its additional components. Like with most of the computer chassis' currently focused on the enthusiast and gaming market, the Eclipse is available in black and silver flavors. The one we have our hands on today being the black (RH-M040-1AW) model with transparent side window. Found on top of the chassis, was the user's manual and a small cloth for cleaning the exterior of the case, which Thermaltake has been recently including in all of their latest case products. Inside of the case was the remainder of the drive rails, screws, and miscellaneous other hardware.
