Thermaltake Announces the Urban S21 Chassis

Thermaltake, an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solution, and power supply unit recently reveals Urban S21 mainstream mid-tower, one of the members of Thermaltake newest chassis series - Urban Series. The entire series has a simple and elegant aesthetic look; designed for users who looks for powerful performance and high expandability but a flamboyantly appearance or more simple and sophisticated look.

Urban S21 built with metal brushed front door panel to mask the extrusive drive devices ( 3 ODD and 6 HDD drive bays), not only unify the appearance, but also provide a simple yet elegant aesthetic; the sophisticated look can also be part of decoration at home to enhance living quality. The Front-top panel has implemented two of latest data transfer SuperSpeed USB 3.0, a HD microphone and headset jacks, to grand direct access when needed, and a side window opening panel to take an instant glance of the interior.

Advanced Ventilation & Innovation
There are two preinstalled 120mm fans to optimize system ventilation in Urban S21. Plus pre-mounted hole for more ventilation options, users still can build up system ventilation by their preference. The latest tool-less innovation with 5.25" & 3.5" tool-free drive bay design minimized the hassles of installing ODD and HDD devices.

Maximize Expandability
Pre-mounting holes enable user to support motherboards up to standard ATX and CPU cooler installation, the extra long graphic card as well as rubber grommet holes for Advanced Cable Management and Liquid Cooling System. There will be more cases introduced in March along with Urban Series, same family, yet different performances to suit user's need.

no openings for cable routing?
the whole right side of the motherboard tray looks open to me;) Plus with such a small window, you wont see the wiring tied up there.

Got to say it's eye catching on the aesthetics... with aluminum front door classy, hope they have it reversible. I'd like them to make a version in natural silver brush aluminum. The little window is different, but here's what don't think they did but should have... Made it where you could flip/flop the window in either fan hole, while also supply an extra window and fan grill, this way you could have both windows and/or fans if you'd like.

I like that it only has the one fan mount on top so many anymore many punch two in the more is beter thinking. More often not you're not using both, this case might be a little tight for a dual radiator anyway. When I place a fan there I like to duct (made reverse hood scoop) with sound deadening, it's nice having hot air from blow up cuts noise and can prevent a rouge staple going in there. If I don’t use it I cover it, ceasing the noise dust and crap.

I see a few loops for cable ties, while I’d hope they give room behind the mobo tray to hide looms. Like that it’s up off the floor for good air flow and in someways draws less dust in. Hope they did nice easy to pull filters for PSU and intake. What’s that on top, that “X” is that I/O switch with light/HHD activity? Nice touch if so. I like it… but need a review to learn everything.
