View 31 TG Layout and Features
Appearance is everything when it comes to choosing a computer case and the View 31 TG builds on a concept established with the first TT View cases allowing you to see just about everything inside the case.
Turning the case around you can visually see that the View 31 TG is wider than a standard tower chassis so it can accommodate variety of new cooling options, better cable management and two vertically mounted expansion slots.
You will find a total of eight expansion slots on the TT View 31 along with two more positioned vertically closest to the side panel. These slots hold a special vertical video card mount for showing off that expensive video card you bought instead of having it mounted directly to the motherboard and mostly hidden from view.
One of the most overlooked cooling opportunities is venting from the bottom of the case. We all know that heat rises so why not allow cool air to enter from the bottom. The View 31 comes with a full length fan filter indicating a primary air intake that can easily slide out to be cleaned.
The View 31 features a solid front panel with the front controls located across the top of the case. You’ll find USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports along with a power and reset button and analog connections for headphone and mic.
A common trend with high-end cases is the removal of the external 5.25” drive bay. While we tend to agree that the days of optical storage are dwindling that isn’t the only thing designed to go in these locations making their demise a little premature in my opinion but, that is progress.
Like on other Thermaltake cases the top of this case features a primary exhaust location with a magnetic filter mesh sitting on top. The mesh panel is easily removed and does a great job at hiding whatever happens to be installed.
