4.0 out of 5 stars good for a normal build but limited for a watercooled, November 8, 2013

This review is from: Thermaltake Chaser A31 Mid-Tower Chassis VP300A1W2N (Personal Computers)
This is a great case to build with. I love the features as they allow you many options to easily modify the way you want to, You can remove the no tool bay catches and mount your hardwear the conventional way, I would recomend this as the no tool catch only secures the device from one side and devices such as a dvd/bluray will be noticably loose in the case when using it. The 3.5" bays are very convenient as well but there is one thing about them I didn't like and that is the orientation. due to the front fan assembly the bays are accessed from the side bay cover which means hooking your modular SATA power cables will become more of an issue if you are trying to minimize cables.

The major issue I have with this case is the dimensions. I bought this case for my watercooled system and before buying it I researched this and other cases heavily. Thermaltake advertises on their web site that this case was designed to accept 270 mm radiators which is what I have, and yes the case does have the mounting loaction on the top of the case to mount a radiator from either the interior or exterior The issue is that the case is a few fractions of an inch too narrow/shallow for a radiator that size to mount internally as it will block the RAM slots on your motherboard. Had they made the case a few centimeters wider or taller it would have fit well. Also mounting the radiator on top brings another issue of fan placement. Since the fans should be placed directly over a radiator doing so would keep you from replacing the top cover it you plan on sandwiching the chassis between the radiator and the fans. external top mounting of the radiator brings in some isses too unless you plan on modifying the top cover. I would not recomend it however due to the fact that the top cover is made of plastic and probably not the best location to mount a radiator. This leaves only one choice for mounting a long radiator and that is on the back.

If you are planning on building a water cooled unit, then this case is still a good case, though I would recommend buying a system like the Thermaltake Bigwater or something that mounts in a 5.25" drive bay or a single block radiator.

The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is due to the fact that Thermaltake advertises that it will accept a radiator like mine and in fact does not; as well as the 3.5" drive bay orientation which may become a bigger hassle. Other than that though this case is a great case. And if all you want is an air cooled system it will make a great build. Buy 2 more fans and mount them up top and you would have plenty of air circulating through your system.

good price!

has a lot of Hard drive bays..
a good amount of space.

the top comes off- you can install a 2-fan radiator. or a single... or a fan..
or you can hide stuff...

comes with 2 fans installed (on in front- for HD Bay) on in rear (exhaust).

The power button is cool! its BRIGHT... so don't stare at it....
Has a cubby/space on the top to store stuff..... roughly the size of a CD Jewel Case will fit.
You can put loose change, your phone, ipod, shoe laces, ear-buds, paper clips, USB flash drives, CDs,... almost anything!

Fit all my crap in it, including my enormous cpu fan set up. Keeps my crap cool. Plenty of places to put fans. Nice screwless system for your drives, not sketchy like some cases. Defiantly feels like you get your moneys worth and more.
