Thermaltake Chaser A41 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Thermaltake Chaser A41 Mid-Tower Chassis




The front of the Chaser is mainly black as the plastic outer edges sticks forward the most and cuts back behind all of the mesh panels. At the top of the chassis there are four 5.25" covers with light blue edges, a 3.5" bay cover, and a very large intake at the bottom made of mesh as well.




Moving up to the top, you immediately run into the front I/O panel offering a pair of USB 3.0 ports, HD Audio jacks, a slim reset button, a large power button in the middle, and the HDD activity light to match the reset button off to the right. You also get a large storage tray for keeping whatever you need handy.




Behind the storage tray, the remainder of the steel top is opened up to allow all sorts of fans. You can use a pair of 120mm, 140mm, and even a 200mm fan with this design, and you even have room on the underside for a slim radiator and fan without intruding on the motherboard.




The left of the Chaser offers the large clear window that shows only the hardware and not the bays, where the bump out of this panel goes completely side to side. At the top right corner of this bump, you can see the headphone hanger mounted to the chassis to offer some place other than the desktop for them.




Around the back the top of the chassis offers a cable retention clip and three water cooling holes with grommets that can accept tubing up to and including 1/2" ID tubing. You then have the rear exhaust next to the rear I/O above seven vented expansion slots, leaving room at the bottom for the PSU.




On the right side of the chassis you can see the door panel is a mirror image of the opposing side, as far as the steel is concerned. Of course, they didn't add the window or the hanger, but behind this panel you will have 30mm of room for wiring.




Under the chassis you are going to notice the large plastic feet first. You can leave them tucked under the chassis, or you can twist them outward. Between the feet you will find a long dust filter for both the PSU and the optional fan that can be mounted near the middle.




As I went to remove the panels, I really like this handy little addition of making it so that the thumbscrews don't come out of the panel. This way when you go to replace it, or need to work in a tight spot, you don't lose or drop these and frustrate yourself.
