Thermaltake has a serious attitude about supporting the Gamer or E-Sports with it’s TteSports gaming devices and peripherals. To blend in the Thermaltake “COOL all YOUR LIFE” cases with the TteSports line of gaming products Thermaltake has taken up arms in the your gaming world with the Thermaltake Chaser A31 line of mid tower cases.[sc:sponsor sponsor=”Thermaltake” product_link=”http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00001951″ product_name=”Chaser A31 ” ]
When the case arrived it was not wrapped or covered at all, showing all it’s brilliance in product showcasing.
This version is called the Chaser A31 Thunder or the BLUE model. In all it’s exciting glory it’s preparing to bolt out of the box. The box title lists this as the VP3000 Series Chaser A31 Thunder Edition Pursuit Without Fear.
Like rolling THUNDER you can imagine this case is preparing to strike. Open the box and BAM you see the case front begging for a storm of hardware.
Out of the box we have the STORM which I would call it a NAVY Blue color. Nine removable bay panels, side window covered in protective plastic liner and all the accessories taped in the case floor.
Accessories removed show a 3 1/2″ cage, 2nd fan, 3M double stick tape pieces, bag of extras, ties, screws, thumb screws and a open 3 1/2″ drive bay cover. A User manual and warranty page is also included.
Chaser A31 is available in 3 editions, standard, SNOW and THUNDER.
