Thermaltake View 51 TG ARGB Case Overview
As you can guess the View 51 TG ARGB is a pretty large case, it has official dimensions of 550 x 315 x 525 mm and weighs in at 32.96 lbs without anything even installed. The case is mainly made out of SPCC steel and there are three 4mm-thick tempered glass panels. We received the black version of the case, but they also have an all white “Snow” edition.
Starting at the front of the case we have a very large tempered glass panel and on the left side you’ll find all of your connections and buttons. You have a USB 3.2 gen 2 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 gen 1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, headphone and microphone jacks, hard drive activity LED, and a small “R” button, which is for RGB control. Between the glass panel and the I/O panel is a small ventilated section, which should provide some airflow, but by no means is this a high airflow case.
Right at the corner of the case you’ll find a large power button. The glass part of the case can be removed. Once removed we can get a better look at the two pre-installed 200 mm ARGB fans. These fans will spin at 600 RPM, so they should be pretty quiet. The fans sit on a removable cooling bracket, which supports the two 200 mm fans, or three 120 / 140 mm fans, or radiators up to 360 mm.
At the top of the case you’ll find another 4mm-thick tempered glass panel and the same small strip of ventilation. By removing two thumbscrews at the back of the case you can easily take this panel off to reveal a cooling bracket. This cooling bracket, like the one on the front of the case is fully removable and will support two 200 mm fans, or three 120 / 140 mm fans, or radiators up to 360 mm.
The main side panel of the case is of course a tempered glass panel. It is going to show off everything inside your system so you are going to want to make sure your wiring is clean. The opposite side panel is a steel panel, but there are two large ventilated sections to help air flow through the case.
Moving around to the back of the case we can see this case has what I like to call a vertical dual-compartment design, where the case is divided vertically into two main compartments. On the right side we have a removable door that reveals two hard drive trays. These trays support both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives. Below that is your power supply mount. On the opposite side you find your third included fan which is a 120 mm ARGB fan. Below that is your expansion slots, which you have 8 making this a real full tower case. Pulling out from the bottom of the case is a filter that extends the entire length of the main compartment of the case.
