Thermaltake has announced its new Chaser A71 gaming enclosure. The Chaser A71 is designed to be the ultimate gaming case, giving gamers and enthusiasts maximum performance, cooling and compatibility.
The case comes with four fans: a single rear 120 mm fan and three 200 mm fans, mounted on the side, front and top. All the fans are blue LED lit, which in combination with the blue accents, makes it clear that the case was indeed inspired by the movie "Tron." It is also possible to mount a 240 mm water cooling radiator. All of the intake fans have dust filters.
Beyond the generous cooling abilities, the case is also built for convenient cable management. With plenty of space behind the motherboard tray and numerous cable routing holes, cabling should be hassle-free. The case has three optical drive bays along with five 3.5"/2.5" drive bays.
The case has two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and HD audio ports in the top front I/O, along with a very practical built-in hot-swap bay.
Although the fact that Tom's doesn't mentions anything about the materials makes me kinda unconfortable, I really hope it's not totally plastic, yes it is Termaltake, but it also it their top tier case, that has to count for something, right??
I thing coolermaster will sue.
Still, it looks like a beautiful, well-rounded case with plenty of features and lots of room.
The lines and curves are elegant and subtle, much like the A31. Completely different appearance-wise from gauche gaming cases like the HAF-X or the earlier Chaser MK-1.

The A71 has basically the same external chassis as the A31, but has a few more "gamer oriented" features on the inside.
