Each time a PC case makes its way to our lab (more than just once a week) I’m always very curious to see if that particular model packs something new compared to what we've seen up to that moment. As you know that's not the case with most of them since we see the same features and specifications over and over again but exceptions exist everywhere and so from time to time some do pack new and unique characteristics. Take tempered glass for example which was something new and exciting when introduced in the market in 2015 and still is although many PC cases feature it now. Still the majority of PC cases that feature tempered glass only have their right side panel made by it and honestly it was always expected from manufacturers to expand that on both sides and why not even at the front and top as well. The first attempt by Thermaltake to tick the boxes of most of the things we've been expecting is the View 31 TG mid tower which is here with us today (once again we're among the first people to get their hands on it).
The beginning of every myth and legend is about dreams and desire: the challenging, creative and combative features of Thermaltake Group create an exciting and fascinating user experience to share with everyone, while allowing users to enter a selfless state in terms of function and potential. Thermaltake Group's 3 main brands: Thermaltake, Tt eSPORTS and LUXA2 have been merchandising throughout the world, and have successfully established 6 business footholds in areas such as Europe, America, Oceania, Japan and China, with 95 regional distributors and over 4000 premium retailers. All product planning is orientated by observation of global PC peripheral market and understanding of consumer demands. Thermaltake creates direct contact opportunities with resellers and consumers by participating major global ICT exhibitions and trade shows every year, and develop innovative marketing strategies for the promotions of new products. Meanwhile, Thermaltake incorporates the composite marketing system by making branch offices and regional distributors both the distribution channel and technical support or service center to provide instant support; by maintaining close contact with end users, we manage to strengthen corporate competitiveness and create the momentum for the growth of accomplishments. With its outstanding wisdom and strength Thermaltake Group is recruiting creative talents to build a cultural brand for the enjoyment of entertainment, e-Sports, technology and lifestyle!
The Thermaltake View 31 TG mid tower features 4mm thick tempered glass side panels (yes both of them) and is currently available in two versions, the TG which we have here and comes with two blue 140mm RIING LED fans preinstalled (front/rear) and the TG RGB which comes with three RGB 140mm RIING LED fans (front/rear) preinstalled. Everything else pretty much remains the same in both models so the View 31 TG has enough room for mini-ITX/micro-ATX/ATX mainboards and can be equipped with up to nine fans (9x120mm/8x140mm) and/or two 240/280/360mm radiators (excluding the two single fan ones), three 2.5/3.5" drives (three more at the rear with extra trays), 180mm tall CPU coolers, 278mm long graphics cards (420mm without the drive cage) and 180mm long power supply units (220mm without a bottom fan). The View 31 TG also comes ready with 2 air-filters (top/bottom) and also features a dual-slot vertical support bracket allowing you to have a much better look at your graphics card through the tempered glass panel.
