A thermaltake case that doesn't suck? Too good to be true. lachen.gif
(/jks I quite liked the tt chaser mk1 and once upon a time had the original Thermaltake Soprano.) smile.gif

Yes - I don't see many thinking 'hmm, out of all of the Mini-ITX cases on the market I will pick... that one.' biggrin.gif

Look at the size of the case.... A single 120mm fan would drastically increase the size of the case. The only possible place for additional fans would be 40mm fans in the back or 60mm fans on the side panel between the drive cage and HDD area.

I think it looks fine.

In an unrelated but shocking news story, not everyone has the same tastes.

300w seasonic tfx psu is available. If the In-win psu in that is the same as another in-win I had (power man) keep an eye on the fan. Crapped out in months. Seasonic psu has a lolt more heft to it, voltages were also closer to spec.
As for a single 80mm, it should work with that case - actually with an apu and a downblowing cooler like the noctua or scythe, where it pulls the air from the big hole in the side panel, its entirely possible you wouldn't need the 80mm.

Reviews of the 160w PSU seem decent enough.
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cases/display/mini-itx-cases-roundup_12.html
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/In-Win-Diva-Case-Review/931/6


A 300w PSU would be overkill in this case.... the case itself would not be able to cope with 330w+ of heat. I have basically the same case and it gets hot with an E-350. (Being a HTPC I lowered the RPM of the 80mm fan for noise and installed my another 80mm fan.)

A standard DVD drive will block most of the hole above the CPU area. A slim DVD drive will not though.

A low-profile heatsink will be need though since any 5.25" bay device will reduce HSF room.

Versus alternatives in the same form factor.

  • Thermaltake SD101: 264mm x 119mm x 261mm; 1x 80mm fan mount; 180W TFX PSU; max CPU cooler height 45mm; max VGA length 172mm; 1x drive bay; USB 3.0; unknown price

  • Fractal Design Node 304: 250mm x 210mm x 374mm; 2x 90mm front fan mounts and 1x 140mm rear fan mount; ATX-sized PSU; max CPU cooler height 165mm; max VGA length 170mm or 310mm with two drive bays removed; 6x drive bays (mounted in pairs); USB 3.0; $90

  • Habey 600/800: 200mm x 225mm x 57mm/75mm; 120W internal/60W AC adapter; no fan mounts on 600, 1x 50mm fan mount on 800; max CPU cooler height 32/39mm with stock drive mount; max VGA length unlisted (no expansion slots); 1x 2.5” drive bay; $60-70

  • Silverstone SG05/06: 222mm/220mm x 176mm/177mm x 276mm/286mm; 1x 120mm front fan mount; SFX-sized PSU (450W); max CPU cooler height 82mm; max VGA length ~255mm; 1x drive bay; USB 3.0; $130-160

  • Silverstone SG07/08: 222mm x 190mm x 350mm/351mm; 1x 180mm top fan mount; custom 600W PSU; max CPU cooler height 117mm; max VGA length 310mm; 1x drive bay; USB 3.0; $200


The main problems with the case are that it does nothing particularly well by design. There is no reason for it to support a discrete graphics card since the case can't support the cooling for it, so it's bigger than other cases designed not to have discrete GPUs. It can't support CPU coolers much taller than those that would fit in a Habey case, making its extra size wasteful. An ODD blocks off much of the space above the CPU, likely having a negative impact cooling from that vent. It doesn't look like it can support much modding to make it better at one thing versus another.

None of those cases are really in the same class....
Fractal Design Node 304 is 130% bigger.
Habey 600 doesn't support any external drives, no expansion cards, and has even less cooling.
Habey 800 supports only a slim ODD, no expansion cards, and has even less cooling.
Silverstones SG05/06 are 30% bigger.
Silverstones SG07/08 are 80% bigger.


If you use a slim ODD, CPU cooling issues are resolved for the most part.

None of that changes the concluding paragraph: the SD101 does nothing particularly well.

Thermaltake crams a lot into a fairly small space but they not in any meaningfully-useful way. Look at where the expansion slot is in relation to the case's designed airflow. Air cannot be pulled from below a graphics card because there is no where for air to be pulled through; all solid walls and a drive bay directly below. Air must be pulled in from the large side vent... where many/most aftermarket graphics cards are now employing coolers that exhaust from the sides instead. The included case fan is intended as an exhaust and would arguably pull air away from the graphics card. Now factor in CPU cooling, which is also expected to take air in from the side vent. Where does the CPU exhaust air to? Since the case only supports top-down coolers, that exhaust goes into the case body.

Speaking of the side vent, fine mesh is great for dust but not so much for air flow. Fans are going to have to work harder (read: be louder) to cool components. Airflow will also be reduced by the inclusion of any ODD, which will also eat into the already poor CPU cooler real estate and cut into the space needed to pull in air for the graphics card. Any bets how much CPU exhaust, or side-venting VGA exhaust, is going to be recycled?

The case simply cannot justify its size relative to its cooling. The expansion slots more or less go to waste unless you have a low-powered, blower or passively-cooled graphics card or forgo a discrete graphics card altogether for a sound card or the like. The low-powered systems that this case actually can support can be equally supported by a Habey or similar case (Mac Mini, Vaiko ML-55, etc.).

I'm just not seeing it Duckie. What exactly is this case supposed to be good at or for?

HTPC.... mITX, 1 ODD, 1 PCIe TV tuner, SSD of OS, HDD for recording in a small volume.

Again, I have the InWin version and it works fine except it needs a bigger side panel vent.... this solves that issue. thumb.gif
