Thermaltake Reveals Chaser A41 PC Case

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 23 comments

A brother for the recently announced A31.

Hot on the heels of the introduction of the Chaser A31, Thermaltake has unveiled the Chaser A41. The A41 features the same e-sports-inspired aesthetic as the Chaser A31 but boasts an extra fan (one front intake 120mm, one rear exhaust 120mm fan, and a top fan measuring 200mm), and a 30mm wide cable routing gap for easy cable management.

 

The A41 has the same transparent side panel that offers a view of your system's innards at a quick glace, not to mention space for 4 x 5.25-inch and 1 x 3.5-inch drives via a tool-free drive bay design and an additional 5 x 3.5-inch hidden drive bays. It supports 9.6-inch x 9.6-inch (Micro ATX) and 12-inch x 9.6-inch (ATX) boards, as well as coolers as tall as 175mm and graphics cards as long as 315mm. It's got two USB 3.0 and one HD Audio port, and seven expansion slots.

 

The entire thing weighs just over 17.5lbs, and measures in at 19.5 x 9.9 x 20.1 inches. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but we'll keep you posted.

    The usual Photo problem.
    Photos in the article are 338px and ofter 2 stages of 'zoom' you get one at 360 pixel.

    If this was a hobby site I'd understand.
    But for one of the leading commercial sites it is just sad, so very sad.

    Regardless, another toy-looking case from Thermaltake. I miss the days when they made nice cases like the Mozart TX.

    @halcyon - totally agree, my old Thermaltake Armour was a decent case but all their new ones look plastic and cheap.

    Yeah, what's with the pictures? This is really embarrassing.

    A case that wide, which I appreciate, shouldn't need feet. Those make any case look like a penguin or R2D2.

    It's like a girl on Facebook with a small picture: you can't tell quite how ugly they are.

    Maybe Tom's needs a photo web programmer, and no one in their workforce knows how to optimize zoom as us readers want it to be.

    The Chaser A31 looks infinitely better than this A41. The A31 looks clean and beautiful while the A41 looks generic and cheap.

    TigerDirect seems to be the only one selling the Chaser A31 atm (on sale too) :

    I believe all Thermaltake cases have rotatable feet (the ones that have feet anyway) so you can tuck them in out of sight. Though you'd be surprised how wobbly even wide cases are on really thick carpet. The wider feet help tremendously in those situations.

    The blue colored plastic kills it for me.

    Stop with the black/blue or black/red color theme already. It's been done to death.

    *sigh* remember when Thermaltake made kick-ass cases? Do a Google image search on: MOZART TX - Its large, it used to sell for $250, but its a very good design... impressive in almost every way.

    I was just as the store and I've seen some $60~70 cases that look quite nice. I still prefer the $100~150 cases IMHO...

    I'd also like to see cases which are HQ/full featured - but will hold the mATX boards... most people DO NOT need 7-slot ATX motherboards. Almost any good mATX board will still do SLI/CF. When I upgraded to the i5-3570K, I paid the same price for the GA-Z77 board that was mATX over the slightly better and on sale ATX GA-Z77. I wanted the flexibility of a smaller case in the future.

    I had a Mozart TX back in '06. Impressive indeed. This new stuff they're building just seems like junk.

    Yea, Thermaltake really isn't doing anything as exciting anymore. All these cases don't vary much from Rosewill, or Antec cases. Even the insides are similar. You just don't have those utility features you had in past Thermaltake cases, like the Xaser VI with the option for a phase change cooler.

    The feet are needed to raise the case high enough to allow for some airflow beneath the bottom mounted power supply.

    This would be a good case to get if it was cheap enough. I like the design, it's almost adorable since (as others mention) it looks a little like a penguin. Maybe if I get this case then I can paint the outside black and white. Maybe even add a beak.
