Thermaltake Kandalf Case



Thermaltake Kandalf LCS chassis


With processors having such aggressive speeds these days, there is sure to be a build-up of heat. Heatsinks are increasing in size and using better material, but for the overclockers of the world, liquid cooling is still a necessity. Some cases are so small that a custom liquid cooling system could take up 50% of the case, leaving close to no room for components or cables. Someone shoud just come up with an extremely roomy case that has a built in liquid cooling system. Thermaltake says "We should." I introduce to you, the Kandalf LCS.

Towering at approximately 21.25 inches tall, the Kandalf LCS case comes in either black or white. The front of the case is made of a thick brushed aluminum.



  • All aluminum front door
  • Full tower case with building liquid cooling system
  • Utilize thermal concept of automobile and place radiator in front of computer chassis
  • Offers more extra space within case while radiator in the front door
  • Minimize installation time with partial pre-assembled liquid cooling components
  • ATX/BTX compatible (BTX upgrade kit is optional)
