Thermaltake Urban S71 Full-Tower Chassis Review

If the Chaser A71 isn't your thing, maybe the sleek and more elegant looking Urban S71 case is the right answer. Let's take a look.

Thermaltake Urban S71 Full-Tower Chassis

The Urban S71 is rounded at the top and bottom, and offers a huge aluminium door that is brushed and marked with the Thermaltake logo. Then you can spot the front I/O panel above that door.

The door is slightly skinnier than the overall bezel, and a bit shorter, to allow air into the chassis. Behind the door you have four removable bay covers above this image. Here there is a large removable ventilated cover with a dust filter for the fan behind it.

The front I/O panel starts with a pair of USB 2.0 ports to the left. These are followed with the 3.5mm jacks for headphones and a microphone use via the HD Audio header. Then to finish it out, Thermaltake also offer the USB 3.0 ports to the right. The rest of the chassis controls are found at the top. The left side offers a low or high setting fan controller. You then have a large power button in the middle. Off to the right, you will find the smaller reset button and red LED light for the HDD activity. Just behind all of this, you will also see the 2.5" or 3.5" HDD dock.

Behind the dock you will find a long expanse of steel mesh with tiny round holes in it to allow the fan or fans under it a way to exhaust through the chassis. The roundness we saw on the front is also carried all the way to the back with the thick plastic surrounding the mesh panel. Thermaltake also adds a removable dust filter for this as well.

The left side of the Urban S71 offers a really great window. The panel is flat, so that allows for a large window to go in. While they take up most of the vertical height, they don't go too far horizontally as to make you look at bays and wiring.

Out back of the chassis, at the top you can see a dust filter in the top section of plastic, ad as you move to the steel, you first see the wire tending loop. There is a 120mm fan placed next to the rear I/O, eight expansion slots, the pair of LCS holes with grommets, the PSU, and another dust filter handle at the bottom.

The right side panel may be pretty plain and solid black, but the important thing here is that most of the panel is bumped out near 15mm for extra room for the chassis wiring to fit behind it.
