   Although we've all seen numerous PC cases over the years of all shapes and sizes there's no denying that the somewhat recent introduction of tempered glass has changed everything and has effectively enabled consumers to have something really special placed on (or beneath/next to) their desks without having to resort to expensive (and time consuming) mods. Tempered glass is by no means the perfect material since it attracts dust and is extremely easy to leave marks on but since manufacturers can make entire panels out of it it's far more versatile compared to panels made only partially out of plexi. Thermaltake is no stranger to tempered glass and after several very successful PC cases (if I’m not mistaken they have 16 in their product lines already) today they launched the View 71 TG (Tempered Glass) Full Tower and yes once again we're among the first (if not the very first) to get our 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!


   Thermaltake actually released two View 71 TG models, one with two 140mm Riing Blue fans pre-mounted (the one we have) and one with three 140mm Riing RGB fans pre-mounted. That however is the one and only difference these two models have so both feature 4 tempered glass panels (5mm thick), vertical graphics card layout (riser cable is optional) and are completely modular. In terms of interior space both can hold up to E-ATX sized mainboards (Mini ITX, Micro ATX and ATX are also obviously supported), come with a total of 10 PCI expansion slots (8 horizontal and 2 vertical) and have enough room for up to seven 3.5" drives (or ten 2.5" ones), nine 120mm fans (or six 140mm and two 120mm fans) and/or three 360/420mm radiators (also possible to mount an 240mm radiator at the base of the chassis), 190mm tall CPU coolers, 310mm long graphics cards (410mm without the HDD racks) and 220mm long power supply units (without a bottom fan installed). We don't see many full towers lately so let's take a closer look and see what Thermaltake has done with the View 71 TG.
