New cases target the budget to mid-range

At the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show components maker Thermaltake showed us their (somewhat) new Chaser and Urban Simplicity Families.

Last year Chaser was a limited edition enthusiast case (the Chaser MK-I).  Given the popularity of that model, Thermaltake decided to take the dive and expand that look into a whole family of bold designs.  Particularly eye-catching is the new Chaser A31, priced at around $80.  It features bold blue and white styling and an eye-catching front plate, along with two USB 3.0 slots.

The larger members of the family -- the A41 ($100) and the a71 ($160) -- come with four USB 3.0 ports and the ability to support water cooling (which the A31 lacks).

All members of the family have removeable drive bay cages, in case you want to parlay having an excess of storage for having a bit more free case space.  Thermaltake also made a calculated decision to cover the drive bays in the new case, saving the plastic window for just the internals.  A company representative said that the company realized that there's no need for a see-through panel to view the blasé drive bays.

Thermaltake is also introducing the "Urban Simplicity" family, which will include four cases.  The S71, S41, S31, and S21 will be available for $160, $130, $90, and $70 USD, repsectively.

The componentmaker says the new chassis desgns embody its aim of "sleek and simple" designs, and were formulated not to clash with the bolder Chaser series.
