Posted: September 18, 2013 01:12PM
Thermaltake is well known for its many chassis, CPU coolers, PSUs and gaming peripherals. Now it seeks to expand upon its already large chassis line up with the new Urban S31 Snow Edition. The new chassis has a minimalistic and elegant design with a brushed aluminum front panel, which hides the drive bays. However, minimalistic does not mean simplistic as this chassis demonstrates.
The case is 19.7 x 8.1 by 20.5 inches, which allows for both microATX and regular ATX motherboards. Thermaltake has also been able to make room for three 5.25 inch bays and six 3.5/2.5 inch bays, so if you plan on using this for an HTPC there is plenty of room for all the storage you might need; and should you buy the non-windowed version, the chassis comes with sound dampening foam in the side panels to ensure that you will not get distracted during movies. If you are more interested in keep things cool, there is plenty of options to do so too. There is room for two 120 mm fans in the front, two 120 mm or 140 mm fans in the top of chassis, one 120 mm fan in the rear, and one 120 mm fan in the bottom, and all of the fan mounting spots feature a dust filter, except for in the rear. As for connectivity on the outside of the chassis, there are two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a microphone and headset jack, all located on the front, with a 2.5 or 3.5 inch HDD docking station on the top of the chassis.
