Not a traditional TT fan since I last had one of their cases (Soprano) and I thought they were always a bit plasticky and cheap, though this looks very nice, windowed version for me :D

Sad part is 155mm cpu cooler support, budget case and you can't even put a decent air cooler in it.

I have the S31, same internals different top front and front. Who needs air cooling? I have a 280 top 240 mid and 120 rear rads, 8 drives, 6 cores 8 DIMMS and two GPUS :)
I would however not recommended this case. It's cramped, there's no room behind the tray the hdd sleds little nubs break easy, same with the front door, the fit and finish is bad. But if you like the styling you'll have to live with an overpriced under featured case.
A really good example is the top bottom and front fans require special screws and while there's space for 5 fans there's only screws for 3,I hope the T31 fixes this major flaw.

If I had money for all that I wouldn't even consider budget case like this, but as it stands, it needs atleast 160mm cooler support.

That's been done plenty before, it's only when Corsair did it, coupled with the vast numbers of Corsair fanboys that sales started slightly dictating design directions.

There is a difference between Making a good product(setting a standard which others duplicate) and making a Successful one(people buy it, your name is known for it) . I own no Corsair cases...yet recognize their SUCCESSFUL execution of said design which results in sales....you know what businesses are in business for. Thermaltake is smart to follow suit. And while others such as Lian li might make make a superior product, Corsair prices and market penetration get them the recognition from the masses. We had tablets way before the Ipad.... apple made it successful. Nexus, Asus, lenovo followed suit and profited as well. Apple still gets the credit. Anyway Great looking case, keep it up Tt.

But I didn't have money for all of that. It's all secondhand, and because I spent less overall I could jam more in :D

I never liked tower coolers anyway, I have a C12P and AXP140RT here as spare.

Really? I thought you would thank Cooler Master for introducing consumers to full aluminium cases with classy understated looks (well before Lian Li).
