"To conclude, this chassis isn't far from the ideal high end chassis. It definitely has its place in the market with a unique style crossed with performance; appearing simple and elegant, but is a beast underneath. If the bright lights and mesh design choice of the Thermaltake Core V71 does not fit your style, but the frame itself does, then this is what you should buy."


  • Advanced water cooling support
  • Well built metal frame
  • Dedicated fan-hub
  • Support for large aftermarket CPU coolers (185mm)
  • Support for high-end graphics cards (400mm)
  • Long internal cables / 8-pin extension cable
  • Easy cable management (20mm behind tray)
  • Good manual
  • Modular design
  • 360° dust filter coverage

 This is definitely a water coolers case. You don’t have to water cool your build to enjoy the room, ascetics and beauty of a case like this. It’s still a fantastic case even without water cooling but it is feature rich and many are for cooling.
“This is a classic in the making, Builders and Modders REJOICE!”

When all is said and done, Thermaltake did not disappoint in what can be considered their first new outing or a reintroduction into enthusiast class custom water cooling cases. There is a huge distinction between a compatible case compared to one explicitly designed for that purpose and we are starting to see more focus on features like tool-less removable cages, overall height and length for radiator support, integrated 10 fan controller, alternative drive mounts, pump/reservoir mounts or stands and 140mm fan support.

"Installing the test computer system was an easy task with plenty of room to maneuver components into place. The external drive bay for mounting the DVD has a very study tool-free locking mechanism, and the HDD trays are easy enough to remove for mounting your HDD or SSD. With plenty of screws for mounting extra fans or a water cooling system, the Urban T81 will surely make for a convenient system building experience."

After the very good Core V71 Full Tower we didn't know exactly what to expect from the Urban T81 although Thermaltake has released a few models in their Urban line that left us with very good impressions. Fortunately it seems that Thermaltake is on a roll since we liked the Urban T81 even more than the Core V71.
