Thermaltake Suppressor F51 Tower Case Review 18

[section_title title=Introduction & Specifications]

Introduction & Specifications

Cases come in all colours, shapes and sizes but on the whole they are mostly black and mostly rectangular boxes. They sit under your desk gathering way too much dust and don’t really inspire many people, at least not as much as the contents usually do. So why do we talk about them? Well, for one thing, all that dust, cat hair and other mess would have no barrier protecting your components but also, occasionally, they can be interesting. I’m not talking about modding here, although that’s certainly one way to spice up a box, I’m talking about regular builders having an easy time of it with lots of nooks and crannies to explore.

That’s certainly the case (get it?) with the ThermalTake Suppressor F51. A Big case designed for noise suppression, water cooling and all round expandability with plenty of scope to make it as individual as you like without getting your Dremmel out. If you don’t want water cooling then no problem, there’s plenty of fan space available to increase airflow to help your CPU and graphics card stay cool; and there’s support for up to 8 mechanical drives, or 10 SSDs if storage is what you’re looking for.
