Chaser A71 case


Nice size, great cable management, good airflow, easy access front ports

Front fan was DOA. It also came with the wrong model. The specs said it was supposed to be a blue LED fan, it came with one without the LEDs. I got in touch with Newegg customer service - I just wanted to exchange the DOA fan for the correct model....

Epic case


Great case. lots of space to put stuff and keep it all neat and clean inside. the front of the case kinda has a tron look which i am happy with. its great u have both usb 2 and 3 on the outside of the case. Love the Hot-swap for Hdd

the stock fans are not great , would recommend buying different ones! but the stock ones work fine! not really a issue just my thoughts about it

Great case, do not buy Bitfenix fans for it


I bought this case as an upgrade from my $50 Thermaltake Commander MS-I. The case is of much higher quality, it is much more attractive, and is a lot larger. The extra space helped drop my GPU idle temperature 5 C. The only problem I have had thus far...

Great looking and good build quality ; Attractive side steel side panels ; Large window ; Lots of space ; Great air flow

The top 200mm fan slot DOES NOT work with Bitfenix Spectre Pro LED fans. (See other thoughts)

Its big, black, and blue. If you like having tons of drives and ports and stuff it's great. They design team could rethink placing the ports. I have the case on top of my desk, and the case ports are on top. I considered this when i bought it, and I'm...

Oh it's big ; Comes with two 240mm LED fans, that are pretty and movable ; Dust covers don't block any air as far as i can tell, very good design ; The cut out on the "non-motherboard" side is very nice, it displays a lot more then what ya may want...

Wire management is a little silly. Its there, but you wont "want" it. I don't know, if you really want to hide your wires from the cut out on this case, your gona spend a lot of time cursing the wire management provided. I didn't hide all my wires, cuz...

Great so far!


The case is very large and easy to work with. No problems with it so far I have really enjoyed it it just looks amazing

There was one little thing that was an issue and that is cable management was a bit tight

OK, expected more


I purchased this tower based on my previous experience with a Thermaltake Armor case. The Chaser is in the pricey range for a tower and I was hoping it was heavy and sturdy just like the Armor case. However, it's really light and so is the metal. For...

Large case, easy cable management, looks nice, enough space for modest watercooling setups

Really lightweight, front panel is cheap

Happy with my Purchase


The RMA was very quick and I'm very pleased with the customer service of thermaltake.

The case comes with 4 fans, and plenty of expansion space, lots of hard drive bays, nice blue led fans, painted everywhere (see cons), nice blue colors on front of the case, very good customer service, this case also has great cable management, nice...

The front panel connectors came defective and not working, but I contacted thermaltake and they were very kind and sent me a new one very quickly. Also I like the fact that the whole case is painted, but don't because I had no idea where to connect my...

Everything you need.


No regret on this purchase at all, it looks great and does everything I need it to.

Lots of room for whatever you need, including custom water-cooling ; Cable management is a breeze ; Room for HUGE CPU fan ; Hard drive management is easy ; Looks amazing ; Good Price

The expansion slot screws are a little difficult to manipulate ; The drive bays in the front are tool-less, but it's tricky to get some drives into place. Once they're in, though, it looks fine and works great

Great Case


Note that if you are installing an SSD make sure to order up a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, the case is supplied with a bracket in a bag but it's for a liquid cooling fan bracket not HDD's

Great quality, lots of included fans, handy wire management setup. Flared finger grabs on back edge of side panels great for easy removal. Top SATA bay is awesome for transferring files and high speed data backups

Now I have fan intake filters to clean....oh wait, that means I don't have to clean internal components plugged with dog hair

Good case for the money


If you're looking for a relatively feature-rich full-sized case for a reasonable price, look no further.

Looks quite nice with the huge LED fans ; Front panel connections are great, particularly the docking bay ; Lots of space, plenty of drive bays ; For what you pay for this case, it delivers quite a lot of hardware

Bit of a pain to get a power supply installed as the Seasonic Platinum-1000 PSU I have barely lined up with three holes in the case. Had to bend some of the 'shelves' for the power supply so that it fit vertically enough just to get that far. Not...
