Thermaltake SopranoRS 101 & WingRS 100

WingRS 100 - Exterior



The other enclosure in today's article is the WingRS 100. It is also based on a mid-tower design and is a bit plainer than its counterpart. It is designed for those looking for an inexpensive case, but the folks at Thermaltake still believe that you can offer a good price without losing all the features.


It too consists of a plastic front bezel and a steel construction that should provide you with a very serviceable case for years to come.



The front of the Wing series is not quite as shiny as the Soprano and it does not have a door to hide away your drives, but it still manages to give a sleek and functional appearance. There are bays for up to four optical drives and one externally accessible 3.5" device, so expansion should not be an issue. The power button also is surrounded by bit of LED lighting, giving off a soft glow the system is powered up.



Some may have thought there were bays for two 3.5" devices, but the bottom opening is actually a small sliding door that hides the front I/O ports. Included are a pair of USB ports and jacks for both a set of headphones and a microphone. There is also a cutout for a Firewire port, but this is absent. Documentation available at the time of this writing show there to be no options for this port, so this may be a generic bezel design.



The side panel of the Wing series does not offer the option of a window, but as previously mentioned, it was designed as a low-cost alternative to a plain box. Even without the plastic option, there are still a pair of vent holes. The top includes a cone shaped adjustable shroud that fits over where the processor is generally located so that your HSF can have cool air to work with. Neither are filtered, but neither are designed to work with a fan mounted either.



The back panel is pretty straightforward and offers nothing out of the ordinary. It does, however, include a very nice 120mm fan like the Soprano, so you can get a good deal of air moving through this little gem.
