Thermaltake Chaser A71 Full-Tower Chassis

The front of the Chaser A71 has predominant edges that do stick out a bit, but the insides of them are shiny black, while the front edges and outsides are textured to add a bit of contrast. Below the Thermaltake name at the top on a thicker plastic support you will see the nine bay covers with the light blue ring around each one.

As the front angles to meet the top of the chassis, the Chaser A71 uses this as the front I/O location. You have the power button with power LED built into it, the HDD activity light, and then the reset button off to the left. There are 3.5mm jacks for HD Audio support, and that is followed up with a pair of USB 2.0 ports as well as a pair of USB 3.0 ports. Just behind this you will locate the 2.5" and 3.5" HDD dock.

Behind the HDD dock there is a large tray with a ribbed bottom to help keep tiny parts from rolling around. The rest of the top panel offers the large mesh area over the 200mm fan that is installed there now.

The left side of the chassis offers the majority of the panel being bumped out to allow room for the 200mm fan mounted in the lower left corner. While the window is large, and oddly shaped, it really offers a look at the bays, your wiring, and potentially the CPU cooler.

Starting from the bottom, you have the area for the PSU with eight ventilated slots above it, and a pair of water cooling holes for external radiators. At the top of the steel body you have the 120mm exhaust, the rear I/O, and a wire tending loop. As you move to the plastic, the cut away it to make the top easier to pull off.

The right side of the chassis offers the same bump out as the left side does, but this time it is put there to allow users to hide much more wiring behind the motherboard tray than if this panel was flat.

Under the chassis you get a look at the large, chunky, plastic feet that use strips of rubber applied to them to keep the chassis from sliding around. On the actual floor of the chassis you will find a long dust filter that pulls out the back of the chassis to cover both the PSU and the optional fan mounting position.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
