On the other side of the box are the cases’ specs.  Being secured inside custom-fitted Styrofoam along with a box that holds the stand for this case. Materials used in the construction was mostly metal with some glass and plastic. Quality of materials used, as well as fit and finish, was very good. The case comes with the warranty and user manual booklets, as well as a motherboard speaker and some accessories to help with the building process.

The Tower 300 case has a great compact look to it along with plenty of airflow to help keep your system cooled. A case stand allows you to store the case at a 90-degree angle, making the case look similar to a cryo-chamber.

Thermaltake Argent E700 Real Leather Gaming Chair

When it comes to getting your game on, there’s a lot of components to consider. Graphic cards and hard drives are usually high on the list. But it’s really easy to forget one of the most important components: your chair. After all, for those really long gaming session, you need a quality chair that is both comfortable and gives you support. Up for review today is the Thermaltake Argent E700 Real Leather Gaming Chair.

The Thermaltake Argent E700 came in a large cardboard box. Opening the box revealed a well-protected chair, held in place with cardboard, foam, and wrapped in plastic. Materials used in the construction was real leather, aluminum, and some plastic. Quality of materials used, as well as the fit and finish, was excellent! This is a premium chair, and it shows! Also included was the instruction manual for assembling it.


As I mentioned before, it’s really easy to forget how critical a quality chair is. After all, you need something that is both comfortable, and gives really good support. You won’t want to sit in a chair for very long if it isn’t comfortable. But comfort isn’t the only thing to look for in a chair. Even more critical is support. Because after long gaming sessions, if you don’t have the needed support, there’s going to be problems. After a long gaming session of multiple hours, a not-supportive chair will not only give you back problems, other parts of your body will be sore as well. And if it continues, it could actually cause some problems. I sit a lot, sometimes all day, so I know what it’s like.


When it comes to assembling a product, having easy to read and follow instructions is critical. I was extremely pleased to see that the instructions were very easy to follow. And not only that, there really weren’t very many pieces to put together. There was the very nice looking aluminum 5-star base, a class 4 gas spring that the chair sat on, and the 5 wheels that attached to the bottom of the 5-star base. The back of the chair easily attached to the seat with some bolts. With the seat and back now one piece, just set it on the gas spring and wheels, and you’re done.


With the chair now put together, I took a closer look at the completed product. The back of the chair is a beautiful thick plastic piece that’s a gloss ocean blue and goes from the back to the bottom, and appears to basically be the frame of the chair. The back and seat of the chair is made of high density molded foam, and is wrapped in 1.1 mm thick genuine premium black leather. The red stitching gives it that gaming chair look. Aluminum side handles adjust both the height and amount of recline. The thick metal 5-star base is also in aluminum. The headrest and arm rests are adjustable. It’s a collaboration with Studio F-A-Porsche, and I love it! The red stitching gives it that gaming chair look. Yet with the black leather and aluminum accents, it also works great as an office chair. While they have a great selection of colors to pick from, the ocean blue is stunning! Now let’s see how it performs.


Using the race car looking side handles, the right side adjusted the height, and the left side to adjust the recline angle. My initial thought upon sitting down, is that they definitely used high density foam. I used the chair exclusively for a few weeks. During this time, I had several long sessions using the chair for 5, 6, and even 7 hours at a time. While not plush and soft, the chair is very comfortable, and extremely supportive. Even after 7 hours straight in the chair, my back was just fine. And having back problems, that’s saying a lot!

Whether you are a gamer who enjoys long sessions, or just spend a lot of time at your work desk, most people need a good chair. The Thermaltake Argent E700 works great as both a gaming or office chair. It’s truly a premium chair, and it shows. Not only does it look beautiful, it’s also extremely well made to provide many years of use. And it also performs in spades. With a MSRP of $1,299, it may not be for everyone, but it should be. It’s worth every penny. Based on its design, features, quality and performance, the Thermaltake Argent E700 has earned our Editor’s Choice Award.
