Thermaltake View 51 TG ARGB Full-Tower Case Review
Peter Donnell / 4 weeks ago
Thermaltake is no stranger to enormous PC cases, in fact, they’ve got quite a strong reputation for them. Actually, a tracking number from Thermaltake usually fills me with dread, because it often means a bloody enormous box is about to arrive. I do love a good full-tower PC case though, the freedom you have to go completely nuts on the interior is inspiring. Then again, even for a fairly simple build, it’s nice to have all that extra elbow room and bigger airflow. Either way, you can’t go far wrong with a full-tower.
Thermaltake View 51 TG ARGB Full-Tower Case
It’s certainly well equipped, and given the overall size and price of it, you would expect as much. It features two pre-installed 200mm fans in the front, as well as a 120mm fan in the rear. However, it’ll support a huge amount more, with support for 13 x 120mm, 6 x 140mm or 4 x 200mm fans. Of course, that also extends to impressive liquid cooling and radiator support also.
The built-in fans are crammed full of ARGB lighting effects, plus you get an ARGB light bar in the front panel and it’s all 5v ARGB, with support for all major motherboards. There’s even a built-in ARGB controller, allowing you to control colour, modes, etc, without external software or hardware support.
Beyond that, you get E-ATX motherboard support, room for enormous graphics cards, loads of storage mounts, ridiculous amounts of cable routing space and so much more. So, let’s grab the big box it came in and take a closer look!

What Thermaltake Had to Say
“Designed to expand the legacy of the View Series lineup, the View 51 Tempered Glass ARGB Edition full-tower chassis features two 200mm 5V ARGB fans at the front and one 120mm 5V ARGB fan at the rear providing outstanding ventilation. This elegant chassis utilizes swing-out side panels, and is enclosed with 4mm tempered glass panels on three sides for users to demonstrate their DIY handwork and showcase their internal components. The I/O ports are positioned vertically on the right side of the front panel with tempered glass windows on its left. Different from other View Series chassis’, the View 51 TG ARGB can hold up to two 200mm fans at the front and on the top.
