Thermaltake Releases New View 71 Glass Snow Edition Full-Tower Case

The new View 71 Glass Snow Edition is every bit as modular as the previous version

Last year we saw the release of Thermaltake’s tempered glass View 71 TG full tower PC case that had a lot to like. Plenty of room for your components, support for both 3.5″ and 2.5″ drives, dual GPU support with vertical mounting, even hinged doors for easy access to the internals.

But black isn’t everybody’s color, so they’ve now released a Glass Snow edition, which takes basically all the good parts about the case and makes them white. Included is the TT Premium assurance which, according to Thermaltake, isn’t just a guarantee of pure quality, but a promise that this product is premium and represents TT’s “passion in DIY, Modding and Thermaltake’s desire to be the most innovative brand in the PC hardware market”.

For those of you who aren’t in the know, let’s reiterate the awesome features that come with this case:

To start, the case includes two preinstalled 140mm Riingwhite fans, as well as a vertical GPU mount (with an optional extender cable to facilitate that, available in 300mm, 600mm, and 1000mm) which, in my opinion, is excellent in that you can stop worrying about your GPU sagging and possibly crapping out for no discernible reason (personal experience), as well as 3-way radiator support so you can keep your PC as cool as humanly possible.

I mentioned the hinge doors above, but what’s best about those is that they’re made of 5mm thick tempered glass, which not only provides apt protection to your internals, but adds to the strength and quality of those doors, so you can feel the quality every time you take a peek inside.

With a durable case like this, you’d have to have some good airflow in order to get all the heat out. Good thing Thermaltake is on your side and has included those two preinstalled 140mm fans with support for up to two more or three additional 120mm fans, depending on your preference, along with support for two more 120mm fans on the bottom of the case as well. But if you don’t want to stop at air cooling, there’s also support for AIO/DIY liquid cooling options, from triple 420mm DIY liquid cooling to 360mm AIO coolers while also providing a quick and easy way to access that pesky drain valve.

Of course, if you want to be a hipster about things and you don’t like the setup the case came with, you can use the series of modular panels, racks, and mounting arrays to assemble your computer from the ground up exactly to your liking.

Looking at the ThermalTake case I have right now, this one seems like a luxury that I might just have to buy into. I’ve been using a mid-tower case for a while, and I’m sure my components have fell victim to claustrophobia by now with all the cables I have to stuff right next to my motherboard and carefully maneuvar around the GPU. Also, the extra cooling would prove to be very useful, as a guy who likes to overclock everything he can. And even if that hasn’t got you wanting this yet, just think, who wouldn’t love the look of a vertically mounted GPU at the front and center of the case? Beautiful, I tell you.
