Thermaltake’s New View 71 Series Of Big Glassy Cases To Stare At
ARGB! The Lights Are So Bright!
Thermaltake’s new View 71 family of enclosures encompasses the View 71 Tempered Glass RGB Plus Edition, Tempered Glass RGB Edition, Tempered Glass Snow Edition, and the Tempered Glass Edition. They are all designed to be mostly constructed of glass so as to give a great view of your interior components, up to and including your PSU as the shroud has a transparent acrylic window to show off those RGBs.
The case will hold any motherboard from E-ATX through to Mini ITX, with a maximum CPU cooler height of 190mm and a GPU of up to 410mm (16.14″) if you pop out the HDD tray. The cooling system is as impressive as the size of the case, the 592 x 274 x 577mm (23.3 x 10.8 x 22.7″) case can hold up to nine 120mm fans or six 140mm fans, watercooling fans can fit three 360/420mm rads, a 120/140mm rad and a 120mm rad simultaneously. Check out what Modders-Inc thought of this case, even if it does lack an optical drive bay.
On paper, Thermaltake's View 71 Tempered Glass ARGB Edition is the opposite of what I look for in a case. It's big, heavy, expensive, and completely covered in glass. But is there more to this crystalline behemoth than the spec sheet says? Let's find out.
