Thermaltake Urban S71 Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅29-04-13

The front of S71 features a brushed aluminium door which pivots from the left-hand side via three hinges. Underneath there are 3x 5.25” drive bay covers and a 3.5” drive bay cover. In the lower region there is also a removable dust filter for the front 200mm cooling fan (see more details in our video)

Around the back of S71 there is an opening at the bottom for mounting the PSU and a total of eight PCI expansion slot covers which have ventilation and thumbscrews. Thermaltake have included dual rubber grommets to the side for tubing/cabling. At the top of the case resides the 120mm cooling fan and a handy bracket for locking/attaching the mouse cord for security reasons.

Up at the top of S71 are the front panel controls which are split into two different sections. The front facing panel contains 2x USB 2.0 ports, 2x USB 3.0 ports (via internal motherboard header) and headphone/microphone jacks.

Above this on the top-side, is a two-speed fan controller, power and reset button with LED and a HDD docking station which can accommodate 2.5” and 3.5” drives.

Up at the top of the case there is an area of ventilation which is constructed of perforated mesh. This panel gives ventilation for the 200mm exhaust cooling fan. Thermaltake have equipped the top fascia with a dust filter which slides out – this can be removed and cleaned.

The underside of S71 features four rubber feet to prevent slippage on smooth surfaces and a large dust filter covers the PSU and bottom fan spot.
