Thermaltake, leading DIY chassis brand, introduces the newest mid-tower PC case for people on the move. The WingRS 301 is portable and affordable but at the same time still sports all the essentials one expects from Thermaltake: quality, tool-free design, easy accessibility and optimized ventilation. With its reinforced top handle you can easily transport this 5.1 KG case and dimensions of 491 (D) x 170 (W) x 420 (H) mm allow for convenient storage in your car, the bus or train, and some airlines might even allow it as carry-on baggage. If you are looking for a portable PC case solution in order to carry your precious gaming machine to tournaments, or you every so often travel e.g. from home to university the Tt WingRS 301 is the ideal solution.

Built for ATX and MicroATX motherboards the WingRS 301 offers sufficient room for high-end graphics cards and provides 9 tool-free drive bays for maximum expandability with four 5 1/4” and five 3 1/2” bays. Seven I/O expansion slots give you enough freedom to upgrade your system with add-on cards. A large 120 mm rear exhaust TurboFan makes sure your machine stays cooled even under high load.



The black finish lends the WingRS 301 its distinct character and at the same time fits to most modern interiors. And the front mesh grill doesn’t just look cool but, above all, provides for improved ventilation. If needed you can even install an additional front fan. Two USB connectors and HD Audio MIC and Speaker connectors in the front give you most convenient access.

The WingRS 301 mid-tower chassis will be available at a suggested retail price of US$ 49.

That top plastic handle is a joke. Why would they advertise carrying it on a plane? Imagine explaining to TSA why you have a silly Thermaltake WingRS?:nutkick:

Handles on cases always look a bit crap to me,if i wanted a handle,i'd mod it into a suitcase.

i bought this case (the older version with no handle) back in december for a build from spare parts i had lying around. i picked it up for $50. its a pretty crappy case. side panels and thin and flex too easily, the metal inside the case can cut you pretty good if you arent careful, etc.

for $50 its not bad. but if Tt charges over $50 because of the fancy new handle, thats just stupid imo.
