As one leading brand in the computer chassis, thermal solution, and power supply unit. Thermaltake continues releasing new Urban S41 mainstream mid-tower, categorized in windowed and non window version, one of the members of Thermaltake latest chassis series – Urban Series. The entire series has a sophisticated and cutting-edge look; designed for users who looks for powerful performance and high expandability but a flamboyantly appearance or more simple and sophisticated look.

Urban S41 built with brushed aluminum finish front door panel to mask the extrusive drive devices ( 4 ODD and 5 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. Furthermore, the preinstalled sound-damping foams for extreme silence purpose on both side panels of Urban S41 non window version reduce noise and acoustic levels within the chassis.



The front-top panel has implemented two of latest data transfer SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports along with two USB 2.0 ports, a HD microphone and headset jacks, to grand direct access when needed. Top-mounted 2.5" or 3.5"HDD Docking Station enables blazing fast file transfer and effortless hot-swap drive replacement design for easy setup or removal of HDD. Preinstalled two of 120mm fans and a top-mounted 200mm fan optimize system ventilation. In order to keep the interior dust free, all intake ventilation holes come with dust protection including removable dust filters at the top, front and bottom of the chassis.

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.

Ever since introduction of Urban S21, S31 and S41, one more member from Urban family will be introduced soon. Users can get an elite enclosure that will last you for builds to come.

For more information, visit the product pages of the Urban S41 Classic and Windowed variants.

I like.

When it comes to case styling, less is more.

Size, the S41 is a little bit bigger than S31. And more 5.25" drive bays on the S41.
From Thermaltake's specs pages:

S31:
- Accessible : 3 x 5.25’’, 1 x 3.5’’ (Converted from one 5.25” drive bay)
- Hidden : 6 x 3.5’’ or 2.5’’
- Docking : 1 x 3.5” or 1 x 2.5”
S41:
- Accessible : 4 x 5.25’’, 1 x 3.5’’ (Converted from one 5.25” drive bay)
-Hidden : 5 x 3.5’’ or 2.5’’
-Docking : 1 x 3.5” or 1 x 2.5”
Supported motherboard size is exactly the same.

IMO the S31 is seems to be better unless you have a need to support an unusually tall CPU heatsink. The missing 5.25" drive is converted into a hidden 3.5", which is much more useful IMO. From the pics though, it looks like you can easily convert between drive configuration one or the other, so number of drives might actually be exactly the same.

By "a little bit bigger" I mean the overall dimension :

S31 :
Code:
500x 206 x 520 mm
(19.7 x 8.1 x 20.5 inch)
S41 :
Code:
[B]516 x 220[/B] x 520 mm 
(20.3 x 8.7 x 20.5 inch)

Yep. But like I said that extra size pretty much goes only toward accomodating tall heatsinks or long GPUs, since the mobo form factor and number of drives is exactly the same.

I'd rather have a smaller case if its going to hold exactly the same amount of stuff inside.
