Not only style and personality but an exceptional combination of cooling, performance, versatility, and adaptability to any configuration unite in this amazing chassis. Gaming purists are assured true enjoyment while in or out of the game.

E-Sport Design

This chassis comes with a 120mm rear fan, three large 200mm fans located at front, top, and side, and blue LEDs preinstalled for extreme airflow and optimal system cooling. In order to keep the interior dust-free, all intake vents come with dust protection, including a removable filter at the bottom of the chassis.

Innovative tool-less design

Innovative 5.25” & 3.5” tool-free drive bay design minimizes the installation of ODD, HDD, and SSD devices for extreme expandability.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic looking case

Pros: Plenty of room for expansion
Cable routing behind the MOBO
Great placement of the Power/Reset buttons and USB Ports on top/front of case
Love the integrated place to put extra parts on top

Cons: no adapters included to make the existing 5.25" bay's work for 2.5" or 3.5"
The front "Blue" color is plastic and relies on the fan lights to make it glow, this causes them to light up unevenly as this case has a front fan at the bottom but not the top.
The front fan died after 2 days and will not turn back on
the large side fan is wobbling slightly which is causing a slight clicking sound.

Other Thoughts: I really like the case and the Thermaltake brand but I expected better craftsmanship for a $120 case, I did not expect this to make any unusal noises out of the box other than normal fan sounds and I had hoped that nothing would be DOA. Now to get them to send me two new fans...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: -Tons of space to work in
-Supports huge GPUs and everything else like that
-Easy to clean PSU filter
-The tray on the top is a great clutter catcher
-Top HDD mount is so convenient

Cons: This case is HEAVY. I knew this going in, and when I bought the case, I rarely left my house and so I figured the more space, the better. Here I am, nearly 2 years later, and I take this thing to LAN parties almost weekly. Lugging around a 55 pound PC when you're a lanky lad is a challenge. Aside from that, even with the raised back panel it's kinda hard to get the back panel to go on if your cables aren't flat like on a Corsair PSU.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this case for almost 2 years, and while I've really loved it, I would've gone with something else if I'd known how often I'd be moving it around in the future. That's my fault though, and as a stationary full-tower case, this case has a lot of perks. My only real complaint is that the side window is pretty limited. But the giant fan on the side has my GPU running at some pretty nice temps, so I can't complain.

Pros: -Lightweight case for full ATX tower

-Beautiful design

-Cable management was very easy

-Great air flow

Cons: -Box came in heavily damaged with tears, but the case itself was safe.

-The exhaust fan makes a very loud noise from time to time, I have to slap the rear end of the case in order for it to stop.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good case.

Pros: The case has a good look to it. The feet provide adequate clearance for air flow. has room for a large radiator up top and still room for single fan radiator at the back fan port, or the bottom in front of the PSU. the paint finish was nice. Lots of tool less screws, very nice detail. My first Full tower, I've been all mids before. my extended atx board fit perfectly, and cabling was easy. very clean, with lots of options and tie off points.

Cons: was only available in blue LED fans. having a choice would be nice. Could have had higher end Thermaltake fans installed NIB. The bottom HDD tray should be bolted in rather than by rivets, I would have liked to remove it for my build, but didn't want to do a permanent modification by doing so. having to pop out the grill covers to insert accessory hardware takes away from the case appearance. No way to avoid it, it just does. Also wish the blue piping were selectable in different colors, just like I wish fan leds were too. I saw an AMD edition pictured online (in image searches) in red. That's what I really would have liked. maybe I can purchase a new front plate and fans in Red led and piping? Does Thermaltake offer them?

Other Thoughts: The top has a handhold slot, which is for removing the top. That's nice, but without a nice "real" handhold just below it, I found myself grabbing here several times during this build, thusly popping the top off. very minor, but worth noting for a future design. Maybe have two slots on left and right instead, IDK. I wish there were a case that came with an integrated flip out headset hook. maybe there is, I've just never accidentally happened upon one.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case

Pros: Solid heavy feel without being unmanageable. The brushed metal stays clean and looks great under any light.
I haven't used the HDD hot swap bay but I love having 4 USB ports easily accessible.
The stock fans are quiet and has stayed almost dust free thanks to the filters.
Lots of room for internal hardware and cooling systems. Two removable side panels makes it easy to run wires.

Cons: The only thing i would say is a con is the fact you have to remove those blue front slats from the outside of the case if you have disc drive bays. it ruins the aesthetics a bit. I only have one so its not as bad but i know people who use 2 or 3 so its going to look a little weird. I wish they would have designed it so you can pop the metal mesh out and leave the blue border

Other Thoughts: it's a bit heavy, not something you would want to transport but it's a really nice case for the price, especially when it goes on sale

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: lots of room, look great, comes apart super easy for cleaning, hot swap bay, and great access to hdd/ssd from both sides for easy switching

Cons: clicking made by big fan after few months turned out to be the screen covering it flipped the screen around and was fixed piece fell off when I opened it and back leg swivels but that's shipping

Other Thoughts: all in all great case

2 out of 5 eggsLabels/Stickers

Pros: Super-sized case, tons of room, tons of ventilation (plenty of pre-installed fans) Beautiful blue LED Lighting that matches what I have already. Aesthetically pleasing to look at.

Cons: This case needs to have but one simple warning (a sticker, a note on the box somewhere) that YOU DO NOT pick it up from the top or front of the case AT ALL for ANY REASON. The design feature allowing the top and front of the case to pop off is handy. But I feel the customer should be warned somewhat more that it does that, especially since the open slot on the top and front for popping the panels off seem to be in the same spots carrying handles would be.
Because in a small shot of absent-mindedness after I had finished spending several hours re-building my PC into the new case. I went to pick it up from the top and front (not knowing they popped off so easily) and dropped my new rig on the floor, shattering one of the feet and warping the case.

Other Thoughts: Will be even more watchful when purchasing new parts. This will not affect my purchasing products from Thermaltake but it is extremely upsetting that this could've been avoided by no more than a sticker indicating that the top and front of the case are not to be used as handles.

5 out of 5 eggsThermaltake Chaser A71 Tower

Pros: Plenty of room for cooling. This case has the room and the ability to incorporate a water cooling solution for your CPU. There's also plenty of case fans to keep your system cool.

Style. I just love the look of this case. It's stylish, it's sleek, and it looks great anywhere. It also has a window so you can show off your awesome build.

Ease of installation. Drive bays have a clip-in style installation which makes it very easy to insert your optical and other drives. The hard drive slots have a easy install tray that pulls out so you can secure the HDD without having to dart around cables to insert the mounting screws.

Card cooler mount. This case also has a mount for coolers for graphics cards like the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X. I only discovered this recently while I was thinking about getting that card. I discovered it down in the bottom of the case. It's very cool.

Cons: I haven't found any.

Other Thoughts: Thermaltake products are a standard for me when it comes to cases and power supplies. I know that they won't break on me in a few weeks. They are great quality products. I recommend any Thermaltake product. Go get it. You'll love it.

5 out of 5 eggsVERY Happy First-time Thermaltake customer

Pros: This case is absolutely spectacular. It is a Wind Tunnel with more than enough room for anything I threw at it.
I had to upgrade from a 10 year old Antec 900 case (sad to have to move on) to make room for the GTX GPU I wanted.
The 4 case fans are great out of the box and it definitely moves air - better yet - it is very quiet, even with the 200mm fan on top.

1. Room! - Able to accept a very large GPU and very large CPU cooler (Gammex400 easily fit inside with no issues)
2. FOUR case fans (included) that are very quiet (they use 3 pin fan connectors, so best to match up to a MOBO that will accept these directly - or you can plug them onto a MOBO with the small "CHA FAN" 4 pin slots and just not connect the PWM pin and let it control it directly with MOBO)
3. Great Airflow - this thing really moves air and keeps everything cool while not having to work very hard at it.
4. Cable Management - PLENTY of wires, rubber grommets, tie points, space to tuck and fold cables inside for max airflow and aesthetics. Absolutely fabulous design - the side case even protrudes a bit to allow more room inside for this
5. Price - On top of the Newegg pricing, it also had a $20 MIR at time I purchased. Great Bang for your buck
6. Tool-less front panel 5.25 installation bays (x3) - just slide the drive in until it clicks. just as easy to release
7. Internal drive bays accept both 2.5" and 3.5" drives out of the box, no adapters needed, plenty of options for securing with screws, but not really necessary for 3.5" HDD. Easy to access.
8. Room again! = for a bottom case fan, as well as room for a 240mm radiator at the top of the case (remove top mounted fan)
9. Mesh screen at bottom of the case for power supply intake
10. External USB (2 x 3.0, 2 x 2,0), Audio and SATA hot-swap dock

Can't say how much I love this new case and I do not feel so bad about retiring my Antec 900 now.
Great Design!

Cons: Really, I cannot think of a con.
This is not really a con, but the case is made of plastic and steel, so some parts do not feel as "solid" as others (like the top), but this also helps keep the weight down. If this was solid steel construction throughout like my old Antec, this would weight probably 40 lbs.

Currently with the Power supply (bottom mount) - this thing comes in around 30 lbs, give or take a few

Again, not a con to me, and definitely not worth taking an egg off for it.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend this case to anyone looking for a full tower ATX case that likes to have room to work with inside and likes to be able to hide wires for a clean looking case.

This would also work great for keeping components cool/er if planning to OC.

VERY quiet case, nice blue glow from LEDs on fans.
