Thermaltake Commander G41 Mid-Tower Chassis

The front of the chassis is not only angled down both sides of where the flatter section of mesh runs down the center, but it also has angles cut into it. We also find a mix of textures where the top is rougher, and the grooves near the bottom are smooth, and almost shiny.

The front I/O is at the top of the bezel, under the off center notch cut from the top. In the I/O panel, you will find a pair of USB 3.0 ports, the HD audio, a wide HDD LED, a similarly shaped reset button below it, and the much larger power button to the right.

At the top front of the G41, the steel is flat and matches the height of the bezel. As we move back, there is a one inch increase in height as the mesh section pops up. There we have all of the holes for two 120mm fans, a single 140mm, or the 200mm fan we covered earlier.

As we get a look at the left side of the G41, we see the majority of it is a large, clear window. You do see a bit of the bays to the right, but it goes far enough left to see the screws in the expansion slots. Also, notice that the entire window section has also been pushed out to allow that 185mm of clearance.

At the back, we find the rear I/O and exhaust fan at the top this time, with a trio of knock-outs for water cooling. Then, there is the 8+1 expansion slot configuration, and the PSU goes in the bottom. We also find that the thumbscrews for the panels do not come out of the door fully, so they will never get lost.

The right side of the chassis is nearly identical to the left side of the chassis. It may not have the window, but more importantly, it keeps the large bumped out section near 10mm deep. This will easily allow for stacks of wires to fit behind this door panel.

Under the Commander G41, we find round plastic feet with rubber pads to support the chassis. At the back, the ventilation and the plastic dust filter are cut around the feet, and at the front, we see rivets holding in the lower HDD cage.
