Thermaltake Commander G41 Review


Thermaltake Commander G41 Closer Look:

This time around Thermaltake has kept it simple when it comes to the front. It contains three exposed 5.25" bays along with the I/O ports above them explained in the previous page. Taking off the front panel requires tugging at the bottom portion until the panel pops off. Underneath reveals a single 120mm fan pre-installed. The option to install a second fan isn't available as the mounting holes are not present. It's seems abnormal of Themeraltake to neglect such an obvious placement, but these things happen.



The Commander G41 has the necessary I/O ports that every modern computer needs. On the left includes USB 3.0 and Audio ports while the right has the power and reset button. After the front panel is removed a single PCB panel is revealed and very clean layout. The lack of USB 2.0 ports is disconcerting considering how cheap it is to manufacturer them. It would be a easy to overlook as it has been a few years now since the introduction of USB 3.0 and nearly all current motherboards have USB 3.0 connectors. I did, however, have a bit of a problem with the connecter, which I cover later in the review.



Inside the chassis was a bag containing an assortment of things, including zip ties, a bay faceplate, and all of the screws. A plastic bay converter was also included which allows 3.5" drives to be installed in the 5.25" bays. The manual itself was useful and detailed enough covering the essentials. The chassis itself doesn't have anything ground breaking or revolutionary so it's hard to have a thick manual, but not necessary in this instance.
