Thermaltake VP700M1W2N


-Cable management is a little tight, but they have nicely placed grommets for routing the cable, so neither a pro or a con. I would definitely buy this case again, with the caveat of making sure I paired it with a motherboard that will mount properly.

Overall, it's a nice case, just be aware of the one major issue (listed in cons) ; Aesthetically, it's a nice balance between plain cases that are boring and excessively "gamey" cases ; It's well built, doesn't feel flimsy at all like some people are...

One major knock against this case (and one minor) ; The big one is regarding the motherboard mounts. First, they're welded on, so if you were to damage one, they're not replaceable. The second issue is that there is no standoff (or even a place to...

It's OK.


Overall 3/5

It's aesthetically pleasing, very nice looking case

It honestly has sub-par cable management. There isn't much room for cables behind it, so you really have to get them down pretty tight

TT's Urban S31? A Nightmare...


Looks good on paper, but paper doesn't count! Don't waste your dough on this puppy, you'll develop nightmares. OTOH, it did help reduce thermal temps. on Prescott 3.8Ghz by 10C's....But I likely could have had the same result with an Antec. No doubt....


Where to begin? Needed a case for a "special build" with good cooling. S31 has it. Also needed the 3.5" option to mount a FDD or any 3.5" device. The S31 has it. Read TT's online manual, which is vague, but I've done this so many times before it misled...

NICE on details


nice case and works pretty good and i love the looks. The only thing that kind of gt to moe was when you take off the plastic from the front panel, some of the glue from the plastic, sticks into the grooves at the edges, i am sure that i can get it out...

Plastic sticks to the side of the front panel edges and look very displeasing

Love this case!


Couldn't be more pleased with this case. Everything came in mint condition, no bent or dinged pieces, nothing missing. Only time it gets noisy is on initial boot up but that's to be expected. Keeps my rig running cool and quiet

Some of the paneling is pretty thin

Maybe i'm lucky or maybe it's just that good


This case is perfect, a lot of the cons i have seen in reviews are non existent, for example the door opens a full 100 degrees unlike what i have seen in other reviews, plenty of room for cable management everything you could want in a case
