One of the premier companies in the PC DIY market, Thermaltake, continues to advance their newest lines of products. The Urban series of PC cases is Thermaltake's answer for those who are looking for something sleek and elegant for their PC. This year we are getting a new design in the Thermaltake Urban T81 with inspiration from some unlikely sources. We had a glimpse of this case back at CES 2014 along with other new products coming soon.
Getting inspiration from the "suicide doors" from cars, the double side door design is just too striking for us to not highlight immediately. Have you ever seen anything like that on a PC chassis? Thermaltake didn't stop there though, as the fully modular drive bay design also allows for double the cooling. The Urban T81 comes with three 200 mm and one 140 mm fan. If you switch to liquid cooling, you can get a 420 mm and a 360 mm radiator at the same time.
The Urban T81 comes with everything else you need with I/O ports, support for full ATX motherboards, and a clean sleek beautiful design. This is a DIY dream since the fully modular design lets the case be what you need it to be. Now I just need an Urban T-1000 to nickname the Therminator and we are all good.
