Taipei, Taiwan－April 21, 2016－Thermaltake is proud to announce the design collaboration with Mathieu Heredia, the co-owner of Watermod France and the winner of the 2nd place in the 2015 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2, on the project “The Tower”. Through the competition, Mathieu was one of most promising design talents. His unique way of thought and skills in modding was showcased for all to see when he turned the Thermaltake Core X9 E-ATX cube case into his own stunning creation, which he duly called “The Tower”. To him, The Tower not only represents a new way to look into Casemod, but also his passion for innovation and his courage to take challenge. After five months of discussion, Thermaltake and Mathieu officially signed the agreement for this design collaboration in early April.
Mathieu was invited by Thermaltake to attend the Paris Game Week last year. At the exhibition, Mathieu shared the story behind his The Tower with Thermaltake and explained the design concepts to the team. During the conversation, his spirits for Casemod impressed Thermaltake team a lot. To promote Casemod movement and Mathieu’s modding spirits, Thermaltake determined to bring this collaboration to its fruition.

We are active, and always on the lookout for modding enthusiasts whose spirit is consistent with our own company values. Today, it gives me great pleasure to announce our strategic cooperation with Mathieu by turning his “Tower” creation from a concept, a casemod, to mass production. We complement each other. We share the same values and we believe in Excellent Quality, Unique Design, Diverse Combinations and Boundless Creativity to provide a high performance PC product for every enthusiast.” said Kenny Lin, President and CEO of Thermaltake.
