    Default Thermaltake Urban T81 Case Review

    Thermaltake shook up the market a few years ago with the release of the Level 10 chassis. It took everything we knew about what a computer case was supposed to look like, and tossed it out a window. It won Thermaltake (sometimes referred to as TT) many accolades and awards for design and innovation. The down side to this was the Level 10 set a high level of expectation that Thermaltake could not live up too with follow up cases. It is hard to please everyone and even harder to please the most hard core enthusiast as they set the tone for what makes for a great case.

    When faced with such a monumental task as this, it is good to take a step back and reset. The Urban series of chassis is exactly that, a reset of Thermaltake’s design team. The days of boisterous designs are being replaced with sleeker lines and more modern curves. This is an effort to attract gamers, water cooling and overclocking enthusiasts with this new Urban series of chassis. The flagship model, the Urban T81, will be put to the test in this review. We will attempt a build that should please all three segments...................

    Great review Sandy, big case, like the double side door system. Excellent build you've made sir. Just wondering, where you put the SSD with all HDD cages/bays removed.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Thank you sir! Really enjoyed working with this case. The build parts on the other hand gave me fits.

    On page 4 of the review about half way down. THere is a location on the door rail to mount a 3.5 or 2.5 drive. Very low key spot.



    "The highlighted bracket below is the hidden drive mounting location for those that remove all of the drive cages. The slits in the removable mount can also be used to mount reservoirs. It is removable to make drive installation a breeze. Once all of the parts are installed the drive will go unnoticed".

    Smart TT move.
    It can't be noticed on your build (blocked by reservoirs).
