“Tai-Chi is a concept evolved from the Taoist beliefs in ancient China. Tai-Chi is an internal art, a balance and harmony between the mind, body, and soul. In accordance with the Taoism philosophy, the form originates from a state of stillness. Soft and harmonic motions arises forming yin and yang – the two complimentary opposite forces that can combine to form a whole. Each part of the Tai-Chi is a complete circle, containing yin and yang.
Thermaltake's Tai-Chi chassis was named Tai-Chi mainly due to how versatile and harmonic the chassis is. It can hold all kinds of ATX form factors (ATX, micro-ATX, extended ATX), while being able to upgrade to BTX.
The balance of airflow inside the Thermaltake Tai-Chi is also part of the reason why it was named so. With equilibrium of intake and exhaust airflow in the Tai-Chi, the chassis is balanced just as the yin and yang. On the other hand, the heatsink-based design of the Tai-Chi chassis keeps the system hardware extremely cool while keeping the system silent. The analogy can be applied directly towards the Taoist concept of Tai-Chi as keeping an internal balance while being extremely peaceful.”
This is what Thermaltake’s official web-site claims. Pretty exciting already, eh? Let’s check it out and see if it is truly so!
