Chaser A31

  • Excerpt: This is a mid-tower set up for gaming. I like the way the drive bays are set up, can fit a GTX 760 in here fine. No worrying about cables being messed up or possible crosstalk between data and power cables. Easy to put the drives in - no tools needed! Front ports and power button are easy access. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Organizing Cables Easy

I LOVE THIS CASE!!! but....

Gregory S., Newegg

  • Summary: Make sure your mother board is compatible with the front USB 3.0 and the Audio plug in.
  • Pros: Everything I want in a case. Thanks newegg XD
  • Cons: There was a few Cons with this case nothing big but I cant give it a 5. 1) There is a gap between the side door and the case up top so now my blue LEDs shine through. 2) The back lid for the mother board is loose where the Ethernet is but that could be my fault. 3) Like everyone said theres not a lot of room in the back to hide wires but you can make it work.

Nice quality case but a little tight

Chaya M., Newegg

  • Summary: Paired with ASUS VX238H-W 23" Widescreen monitor. Looks nice together. Both are "modern" looking pieces. White pops nice against a grey wall.
  • Pros: This is a nice case for the money so it's a good value. I wanted a white and blue build so I was split between this, the NZXT Guardian, and the Corsair Stormtrooper. This was a lot more cost effective so I decided to go with it. I love the space on top for sitting items like flash drives or phones. I regularly stick my phone up there to charge using one of the USB ports directly under it. And the placement of the ports is great also. They are easy to access. (My old N...
  • Cons: There IS a fair amount of room in this case for an ATX build. It took me a bit of planning but I did manage to fit extra extension cables (for appearance, not a case issue) in it too. But, it could use just a little bit more room behind the mobo tray in my opinion. Even just a few mm.

Awesome Case for the Price

  • Excerpt: This case has tons of room for expansion with either fans or water cooling radiators. The hardrive cages come with slots for 2.5 and 3.5 in and are easily removable. The only reason that this case didn't get 5 stars is because the air filters on the front of the case are not removable. Instead they are a thin layer of foam.

User Review

  • Summary: Overall, I am very impressed with this case. As a first time builder, the Thermaltake Chaser a31 was very welcoming, and had some great features that really helped ease the building process. For its price, this case looks and feels like a high end case. But again, the only problem is the lack of spacing in the back of the case for cable management. P.S. I also built with a semi modular power supply.
  • Pros: Looks nice, Quiet fans, Lots of room, Standoffs are pre applied, Lots of dust filters
  • Cons: I'm the back, cable managemt can be tricky

Nice case but...

James M., Newegg
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Even though i love the case,i'm sad about my headphone port not working,but i guess i should have checked it when i first built my system, Overall,i'd still recommend the product.
  • Pros: Love the design,colors and mostly everything about this case. Comes with standoffs and plenty of screws if needed,mine even came with some zip-ties.
  • Cons: The only thing i didn't like about this case was this... after owning it for a while and playing around with my rig and upgrading a few things... i went to plug in my headphones but come to find out my front panel audio port does not work,i wanted to jam to some music while the girlfriend sleeps but couldn't,i don't have time to mess around with an RMA since i'm stuck working 10hrs a day.

Nice case, bad QC

Daniel L., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Not big enough to fit a Corsair H100i and Corsair Vengeance Pro RAM. I had to align the fans to blow inward and trim the fan housing on one of the fans to make it fit. Not a con, but might be useful to others.
  • Pros: It's a nice looking case. It fit all of the components for my new build and has decent airflow. Once I corrected the factory mistakes (see below), it's a very nice case. I'm happy with it.
  • Cons: Quality control. The top circuit board that holds the power and reset buttons was fastened with screws completely crooked. Two of the screws weren't even in the holes, essentially making the top panel useless. Luckily I found it before I started assembling, but if they had any quality control whatsoever this should have been caught before shipping. There was a small chip in the paint of the windowed side panel, revealing bare metal.

Good Case

John C., Newegg
2 February 2014
  • Pros: Nice looks, good cooling flow, roomy. Overall it is an excellent case.
  • Cons: The tool-less 5-1/2 drive bays are flimsy and one was broken on arrival. Doesn't bother me as I have no problem screwing them in, but looses one point for bad design.
