Thermaltake Urban S71 Full-tower Windowed Chassis

Urban S71 windowed mainstream full-tower, part of Thermaltake's latest chassis collection – the Urban Series. The entire series has a simple, elegant aesthetic, designed for those who look for everything but a flamboyant appearance.


Its brushed aluminum finish front panel not only hides your drive devices but unifies the whole appearance to create a simple, sophisticated aesthetic.


Handy I/O Ports

The front-top panel hosts two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports - the latest in data transfer - along with two USB 2.0 ports and HD microphone and headset jacks for convenient access when needed.

Easy Hot Swap

A top-mounted 2.5” or 3.5” HDD docking station enables blazing fast file transfer and effortless hot-swap drive replacement for easy set-up or removal of optical and hard disk drives.

Innovative Tool-less Design

The Urban Series demonstrates the latest in tool-less innovation with a 5.25” & a 3.5” tool-free drive bay design - minimizing the hassle of installing ODD and HDD devices.


Two preinstalled 120mm fans and a top-mounted 200mm fan are included, along with a back-blue LED fan to optimize system ventilation in the Urban S71. In order to keep the interior dust-free, all intake ventilation holes come with dust protection including a removable filter at the bottom of the chassis.

Stress-free Cable Management

Inside the chassis you'll find a wide cable routing gap for easy cable management and for hiding cables behind the motherboard tray. Good cable routing options ensure convenient future upgrades and reduce wire tangling, not to mention better airflow and dust management as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat large case for a good price

Pros: This is a great large tower for those looking to put together a build and don't want a cramped tower. The tower is tall enough to easily fit the PSU, motherboard and a water-cooler radiator without difficulty. It has enough depth to fit even larger graphic cards without interfering with the drive cages. It's also wide enough to handle CPU coolers that are up to 160mm in height, while also providing a panel on the board side that is bumped out to provide space for cables to run behind the motherboard.

There's plenty of room for air to move in the case and it comes with 3 large fans to help keep that air moving. The top fan is also replaceable with 2 smaller fans or a watercooling system. The intakes for the fans are also covered by removable filters to keep the cases inside free of dust and filth. Fans can also be mounted on the cases bottom to pull air in, and the case stands on feet about an inch or so above the ground to provide plenty of space for the air intake.

This case is also quite stylish. The nice brushed metal door on the front is heavy duty and looks great. There's just enough rounded edges and styling on the case to make it look elegant and nice without going over the top. The side window is also the right size, giving you a nice view of the internals without taking up the entire side of the case. Also has the drop-in HDD reader on top, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, and front audio ports that are HD Audio compatible.

The cases construction seems very solid as well. Plenty of metal and care seems to go in to the build. There are plastic components, but they seem well made and the structural components of the case are all metal. All in all it's a great case if you're looking for something well made that is large enough to ensure all components will fit and air flow will not be an issue.

Cons: While a great case overall, it's not without faults. The most notable fault is a common one with cases that have a door. The door has no vent in it to allow for air to flow in to the intake fan that is behind it. While there is room for air to go around the door, obviously having the door there does restrict the amount of air the front fan is going to get. This is why I particularly recommend installing a fan on the intake on the cases bottom.

Other than that I only have a few small nitpicky issues with the case. The power button on the top is a bit easy to press on accident. If you're someone like me that has a tendency to set things down on top of your PC case, you may want to watch for that. The drop-in HDD reader also requires a reboot of the PC to recognize the drive when it's inserted; though that's more of a software/BIOS issue than it is a problem with the case.

Only other potential issue with the case is that it is a large case. While no one should be looking at this case unless a large case is exactly what they want, it is definitely not small so make sure you're looking for something large before you commit.

Other Thoughts: In the end I am very happy with this case. It's built well and walks the line between looking good and staying simple quite well. I had no issues getting everything in to this case and it was fantastic to work in thanks to all the open space. With all the air flow I've had no problems with cooling either. If you need a large case this is definitely one to consider.

3 out of 5 eggsTower

Pros: Great that you can manage your cables easily and that it is tool less. Nice build quality.

Cons: Main thing I gave it a 3 star instead of a 5 is because of the front door that hides your disk drives. The door closes and everything, that looks great. However when you try to open the door it pops off the middle and lower hinge, the top hinge holds it on but after you open it you have to push the door back into the middle and lower hinges. Closing it doesn't have any issues after you have popped it back into it's hinges.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good case for a good price, just the front door is annoying

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The door should not be dislodging from the hinges when being utilized.

We can replace it through warranty service. Please contact Customer Service for RMA instructions.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomy Full Tower

Pros: -Even though front cage isn't removable.. there's still plenty of room for long GPUs.
-Comes w/ a docking station.
-Comes with a nice blue LED strip on front top of the case.
-Looks very clean.
-Comes w/ plenty of USBs on front panel.
-Plenty of room for a serious SLI/Crossfire Build.
-Nice side panel window.
-Tons of filters everywhere.
-I have a 240mm radiator mounted on top (fits perfectly) that's a big plus.

Cons: None really, I've loved this case since day one.

Other Thoughts: I got it day one (since they hit the shelves). I needed a roomy full tower with a nice side panel window for my SLI build that produces A LOT of heat! This case got the job done! While mid tower was stuffed completely, I still got plenty of room left in this full tower. Here are some specs of my current build.
i7-4770K @ 4.2GHz
2-Way SLI SC EVGA GTX 780 Ti
16GB (4X4GB) Crucial Sport XT @ 1866mhz
240GB SSD Crucial M500
(X2 1TB, 3TB, 4TB HDDs)
Corsair H105 w/ 240mm radiator
Corsair AX1200i

3 out of 5 eggsSee my review of the non-window case

Pros: Thermaltake VP500M1N2N Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Cons: Thermaltake VP500M1N2N Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Other Thoughts: This case is has a window in one panel. Mine does not, otherwise it's almost the same. Go see my review. The review is a bit long but I fixed the front door. You might want to do the same.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple, Elegant. Not Perfect

Pros: Case Keeps my equipment very cool.
Its dusty but my house is. The filters help a lot.
Cable management!!!!

Cons: I had trouble mounting my cpu watercooler (double fan) to it. I had to remove the top fan and cut some of the case to get it to fit.
Even before modding the case the top part is very easy to pop off so be careful transporting this anywhere.

Other Thoughts: Has had a few problems but overall im very happy with this purchase. Its not too flashy, keeps my equipment nice and cool, helps keep dust out with those filters, and looks great!

3 out of 5 eggsNot Horrible

Pros: Big. Light. Easy to move around. Plenty of room inside case. It fit my Asus Sabretooth 990fx and my XFX r280x card inside with plenty of room to spare. Comes with standouts pre-installed and plenty of screws to tie down your board and other components. Looks decent enough visually. Plenty of airflow despite other reviewers saying different. Plenty of fans that actually run surprisingly quite overall.

Cons: Bad bad build quality. The only part of this thing that wasn't plastic is the chassis itself. Top and bottoms are made of poor quality plastic. The front door is plastic with aluminum finish. The door itself falls off at will. Thats when it works and when it doesnt work, it sticks. Good thing the case is light too because when you try to move it the cheap plastic Top will pop right off. The included top mounted HDD 2.5/3.5 dock was a nice selling point for me. Too bad it did NOT work. Some people can probably live with the cons I can't. I could go on and on with the cons but ...

Other Thoughts: The box arrived in decent enough condition( a stretch) but that played no bearing on the contents as it was not damaged visually when opened fully. Just make sure that if you do purchase this case you know exactly what you are getting and doing. Plenty of fans for those doing an air solution and the airflow is quite decent in this case despite other reviewers saying different. Overall I would avoid this case unless my budget didnt include a higher quality one. Good enough for when you just need a case and you overspent on all your other components. If you are looking for something sleek and stylish without paying over too much this is your case.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Nice looking case.
Cable management is easy.
HD bays are easy to manage.
Nice to have a SATA slot for hard drives at the top of case.

Cons: Not sure about the bottom front fan, does it have enough open area to effectively pull air thru?
A grill at the bottom of the case would have solve the problem.
Hinges on door a bit weak looking.

Other Thoughts: It may not be a perfect case but overall I like it. I'm sure heavy MOD'ers may need a different case but overall a good quality case.

5 out of 5 eggsNICE

Pros: Tones of room and great design

Cons: front door some times pops off and the top fan cover can pop off easily... they should make the clips stronger or screws in instead of plastic clips

Other Thoughts: I would suggest making a design like this with different colors inside like all red inside or all blue or all green... make a lot more cooler builds with that kind of feature...

3 out of 5 eggsHas potential

Pros: decent bones to do a Case mod with. It’s large and spacious and allows you to choose between mounting a 120, 140 or using the stock 200 mm Case fan. Top Hot Swap docking bay. It looks nice but has some issues.

Cons: No real logical thought to the ventilation in the case. If you are like me and running a CPU that needs some serious cooling (like my over clocked AMD 8 core CPU) then you will have cooling issues in this case unless you are willing to do some work. The amount of air the front 200 mm fan can push is restricted by the front panel door and filter. Thermaltake 1/8 of a inch is not sufficient spacing to allow a decent volume of air to be pulled into the case by the 200 mm fan with the filter you installed in the case. What good does it do to give you a filter that is approx 140 mm x 200 mm if you are going to block out a full 2/3 of the filter surface area with cross support to strengthen it. This could have been avoided by spending just a few more pennies for better material quality or about 10 more seconds on thinking the effect of the design through. You will find the same issue with the top 200 fan made worse by even less thought. The top 200 mm fan is not only restricted by a over abundance of unnecessary plastic cross bracing under the top mesh but also by a lack of actual venting surface area. Again Thermaltake why give a 200 mm fan then add so much cross bracing that your venting area is cut by at least half and then give a opening of 120 mm x 280 mm to vent fro? Moving to the bottom of the case you can mount a 120 mm or 140 mm fan and there is a vent cut out below the PSU. Again a clear lack of thought for design is a issue, why give the option to mount a 120 mm or a 140 mm fan but only give a opening of 120 mm by 110 mm? Clearly you were only looking at the marketing aspect of being able to add extra fans but gave no thought beyond what sounds good in a spec sheet.

Other Thoughts: To be fair I bought this case with the intent to mod it, the look already leans in the direction I want to go for my Mod. Since I bought it with that in mind the Vent issue was a easy fix for me by removing the useless cross bracing on the top, and cutting cutting a larger opening on the bottom to allow a 140 mm fan to breath properly. My mod is going to be a ongoing process as I can afford each step, so the air flow issue had to be fixed right away. My CPU fan was running at max even with the front filter removed and the case door opened, even after removing most of the top vent cross bracing. I replaced the top 200 mm last night with 2 Corsair 120 purple LED fans, my CPU fan now spins at ¼ of what it was so even with the added nose of the 2 120 mm fans it is still much quieter. This could be a really great case if they just put a tiny bit more thought and effort into the design.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality

Pros: Arrived in one piece, that is about all the pro's

Cons: So much of the case is made out of poor quality brittle plastic. Pulling the plastic off the front door broke the door off, which took 2 of the holders with it. Front filter then just fell out of the case, the plastic clip simply didn't align with the rest of the case.

Other Thoughts: Don't think I'm going to use ThermalTake products again, this thing is a mess.
