Thermaltake Announces Chaser A31 Gaming Case

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 12 comments

Thermaltake's newest case comes in a range of colors.

Thermaltake has announced the introduction of a brand new gaming case dubbed the Chaser A31. With a Tron and e-sports-inspired aesthetic, the Chaser A31 boasts a transparent side panel that offers a view of your system's innards at a quick glace.


Thermaltake says the case is built for maximum efficiency when it comes to cooling, featuring a perforated front bezel and two 120MM fans (one in the front and one in the back). When it comes to drives, the Chaser A31 series uses a 5.25-inch and 3.5-inch tool-free drive bay design that aims to minimize the hassle when swapping out ODDs, HDDs and SSDs.

The case measures 19.7 x 8.4 x 19.5 inches and supports 9.6- x 9.6-inch Micro ATX, 12- x 9.6-inch ATX motherboards and a CPU cooler up to 160mm in height. As far as GPUs are concerned, you're restricted to 290mm. However, the Chaser A31 has a removable HDD rack that allows for longer cards. Whip that out and you up that length restriction to 410mm.

The whole package weighs in at 6.5 kg or 14.4 lb and is available in black, blue or white. No word on pricing or a release date just yet.

    I'm glad they didn't ruin the window with stupid side fan perforation/mount like many other manufacturers do.

    Agreed. Side fans do look sick on some cases, but they create sooooo much dust.

    Good call on leaving the side fan off.

    Thermaltake usually has some pretty ricey cases but it seems they're getting more professional about their aesthetics.

    The HAF X was a great case. I don't think you'll be needing a new case for quite a while.

    However, the HAF X is a high-end case while these cases look mainstream so it would be really unfair to compare them to the HAF X.

    I am very disappointed the Blue case does not have a White Racing Stripe down the middle in traditional Thermaltake fashion.

    teresawilliams881my classmate's mother-in-law makes $67/hour on the computer. She has been without work for seven months but last month her check was $19637 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more here >>>>>>......

    Really? She made 67$/hour and made nearly 20k working just a few hours. Assuming you are telling the truth and are NOT an uneducated spam bot, that would be working 10 hours per day every single day of the entire month. Your classmates mother in law is a super duper liar.

    On a side note, toms needs to implement ways to keep new members from posting links, or create complicated captchas for newly registered members.

    Not bad looking.

    Anyone else notice nearly no evolution in PC cases though? I mean I had a sweet looking Antec case back in like 2002 that looked as good as anything out today. Now I remember why I started customizing my own cases :)
