    As a leading brand in the computer chassis, thermal solution, and power supply unit. Thermaltake has released the Urban S31 mainstream mid-tower, one of the members of Thermaltake's newest chassis series – Urban Series. The entire series has a sophisticated and cutting-edge look. With classic edition and windowed edition, Urban S31 is designed for users who look for powerful performance and high expandability but with a more simple and sophisticated look.

    Urban S31 is built with brushed aluminum finish and steel mesh front door panel to mask the extrusive drives and devices ( 3 ODD and 6 HDD drive bays), not only to unify the appearance, but also provide a simple yet elegant aesthetic appeal; the sophisticated look also can be used to match other sleek designs found in your home theatre installation.

    Easy Installation
    The perforated front-top panel has implemented two of latest data transfer devices with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports along with two USB 2.0 ports, a HD microphone and headset jack, to grant direct access when needed. A top-mounted 2.5" or 3.5"HDD Docking Station enables blazing fast file transfers and effortless hot-swap drive replacement for easy setup or removal of storage or backup media.

    Advanced Ventilation & Innovation
    There are two preinstalled 120mm fans to optimize system ventilation in the Urban S31. Plus pre-mounted holes for more ventilation options, allowing users to build up system ventilation to their preference. The latest tool-less innovation with 5.25" & 3.5" tool-free drive bay design minimizes the hassles of installing ODD, HDD and other bay mount devices.

    Maximize Expandability
    Pre-installed holes enable users to support motherboards up to standard ATX and a rear CPU cutout in the motherboard tray to assist with cooler installation and even extra space for extra-long graphics cards as well. Rubber grommeted holes are included to ensure cables can be tucked away for effortless cable management along with liquid cooling tube routing.

    More cases are going to be introduced in the Urban Series. Same family, yet different performance and features to suit user's need. Users can get an elite enclosure that will last you for builds to come.

    For more information, visit the product pages of Urban S31 Classic and Urban S31 Windowed.

    Not bad,I like the front wish the whole case was like that. I see no point in 3.5" dock makes the case look cheesy, I had a case with a blue light like that, it was handy.

    It's good that Tt are finally making cases that people would even consider buying again nowadays <:
    Although there isn't much room for airflow at the front, wouldn't want to populate all 6 drive bays if the only ihtake is under the front panel.
    I also suspect the cable management sucks...

    I think it's funny they just keep those old raptors laying around just for these photoshoots. Maybe drive makers should take a hint and snazz it up a bit.

    Those front panel, that is what I want for all cases to have!

    Only a small room for airflow and a nice brushed (or whatever they have) aluminium. For airflow, the top and the back side will handle it just find.

    Also, it's better than Fractal's cases.

    Very nice. I'm glad to see Thermaltake making something that doesn't look like a toy.

    I like it! Really clean, especially with no side window.

    Looks like I'll finally be replacing my old Lian-Li PC-V1000.

    Yeah that black brushed metal front does look nice. I would not have guessed this was a Tt.

    Docks can be handy but, agreed, that one is awkward.

    I love the case, totally weird from Tt.
    Check first pic here, could be the smaller version, but no name for it yet.

    About time they came in to their senses and knew that flashy "gaming" chassis with ample amounts of plastic trying to resemble a transformer is so 90s / is targetted for the 12 year old demograph.

    Kinda curious if theair flow in to the case comes inn the case at the sides as well as the bottom, as we don't run a AC for the most part of summer and shit gets hot and just the bottom for a intake would not be enough.

    Would of been nice if there was a option to have the psu at the top too.

    I think the docks a good thing on it. As my system only runs on SSD but every so often i like backing stuff up and that dock be perfect for it.
