Remember five years ago when everyone thought Thermaltake was nutso with the Level 10 Full Tower Chassis? The company has never been shy about trying something new and different. Over at Computex 2016 in Taipei, they've done it again, unveiling a completed prototype of what's being called "Project The Tower."
The original creator of the case mod, WaterMOD France co-owner Mathieu Heredia, collaborated with Thermaltake to work toward a working prototype that could then be sent into mass production. The basis for Project The Tower started with a Core X9, but it's been completely rethought to create a "practical yet extraordinary chassis."
Easily the most eye-catching aspect of Project The Tower is its completely open front design, giving you the perfect perspective into the open chassis within. They continued with this line of thought by including open viewing on the left and right sides too, letting passers-by check out the fully vertical arrangement (with liquid cooling) from any angle.

Taipei, Taiwan－May 31st, 2016－Thermaltake, a leading brand in the Case MOD market, chassis, power supply units, and thermal solutions, today officially unveiled the completed prototype of Project The Tower at the COMPUTEX opening ceremony. Project The Tower is a casemod collaboration between Thermaltake and original creator Mathieu Heredia and co-owner of WaterMOD France. Mathieu Heredia who is also the runner-up in the 2015 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2, was invited to give a speech on the collaboration.
“Every time I mod, I try to do something different from my other friends and modders. When I was invited to the Thermaltake’s CaseMOD competition, I completely rethought the Core X9. I wanted to build fully functional case with a unique design, and in the end I created Project The Tower. I was surprised when Thermaltake recognized the spirit of this project, and was even more shocked when they decided to mass produce it. Thank you Thermaltake for making my dreams come true. I hope that this design collaboration will be a great success!” expressed Mathieu Heredia.
Project The Tower and the Core Series have a similar product value, of creating a practical yet extraordinary chassis. Embracing the Casemod movement and Mathieu’s modding spirit, Thermaltake is determined to turn Project The Tower from a concept to a commodity where everyone can enjoy.
