Likewise, the front door panel's brushed aluminum finish masks extrusive drives and devices, producing a unified aesthetic of modern sophistication.

The integrated fan hub and controller can easily manage the airflow of up to 10 fans at once. In addition, HD microphone and headset jacks are positioned for easy, direct access when needed.

Supreme Air Cooling System

My thoughts exactly, even though recently I was gifted a TT Chaser series of case. But recently thermaltake has been releasing really good cases. Sadly Antec seems to have lost sense of designing cases.

I am also interested on this case. It looks good and spacious. Also the handy modular drive cages and dual swing door are impressive. I guess it would be priced about the same as Urban S71? If so, the price will not be attractive enough, but still acceptable.

"Inspired by automotive “suicide doors” , the T81's novel door panels are an innovative and inspired design that sets it apart from any other chassis .

So apparently there are at least 2 x 5.25 bays, hidden behind the front door.

The only qualm I have with these companies proclaiming that their (new and improved) cases will house even the biggest radiators; is that not one of them will state on their website(s) the maximum thickness of said radiators, so we have to wait for a (competent) reviewer to tell us.

Unfortunately; currently I've only seen 2 reviewers that will actually take out a ruler/ measuring tape to do this...ronsanut and ocd3dtv/ Tom Logan on You Tube.

Those look to be EKWB's PE series of radiators which are only 38 mm thick (or thin, depending on how one looks at things); which means that trying to install an EKWB XTX or XSPC RX series radiator might be a bit tight (as the XTX series are 64 mm thick , the XSPC RX series are 62 mm thick), making the build a wee bit more difficult.

Looks like you can install fans in the top section of the case, above the mounting holes. So if that is a 38mm EK rad, with 25mm thick fans, then you should be able to install a ~63mm thick rad, with a single set of fans above it.

Those fans look like the Thermaltake 200mm fans which are 30mm thick so using thicker fans is also possible. Unlike some other "Silent" cases on market, thermaltake has used mesh on top panel so if those fans are configured to pull air from outside the case they won't choke.
