Thermaltake View 32 TG Edition Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 8 months ago
A Closer Look – Exterior
Without a doubt, Thermaltake has nailed down a great design here. The full side panel is glass, giving us phenomenal views of the chassis interior. The light just keeps on flowing too, as there’s tempered glass on the top, front and on the right side too. While this is going to be a headache come cable routing time, it’s going to be party time come LED lighting time.
The top panel looks stunning with the glass finish, and you don’t see a huge amount of chassis with glass on the top. Of course, it’s all 4mm Tempered Glass, so it’ll resist hard knocks, bumps and scratches very well.
Another nice touch here is the I/O panel is cut into the glass. This gives it a slick floating look and I love this attention to detail. They could have just ended the glass panel short of the panel and had plastic at the front, but they didn’t.
There’s plenty of airflow too, even if it doesn’t look like it. There are panel gaps placed carefully between the panels on each side of the chassis. These gaps will allow for an indirect airflow to the fans, helping reduce unwanted fan noise.
Just like the left side, you’ll find another tempered glass window on the right. All the windows are tinted though, so it’s not completely exposing your cables and other hardware. With a little care, a clean build is still very much possible.
Around the back, everything is where you would expect. There’s a height adjustable fan mount at the top, seven expansion slots, and the PSU mount at the bottom.
Finally, the underside of the chassis features good ground clearance. This clearance allows for plenty of airflow to the PSU intake, which comes fitted with a slide-out dust filter.
