Wait... this is not a Fractal?

Thermaltake Announces the Suppressor F51 Mid-tower Chassis


Thermaltake, an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, has unveiled the Suppressor F51 window/non-window mid-tower chassis, the latest series to the Thermaltake case line. Featuring leading-edge sound reduction panels on all sides, expand your cooling options with removable panels for the perfect balance in silent operation and cooling performance. 

The Suppressor F51 supports a range of motherboard platforms from Mini ITX to E-ATX solutions, unrivaled liquid cooling expansion and expandability for all high-end GPU solutions users. The Suppressor F51 will also be on display from June 2nd to June 6th at COMPUTEX Taipei 2015 at Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall 4th floor, Booth M110.

Tool-free Installation
Innovative 5.25" and 3.5" tool-free drive bay design minimizes installation/removal with hidden drive bays on the back panel to provide a clean look and improved expansion for liquid cooling components. The "2 + 6" drive bay with modular drive racks allows multiple SSD/HDD devices for improved storage capacity.

Fully Modular Design
With removable "2 + 6" drive racks, gain more for custom cooling components to freely interchange SSD/HDD cage sections for maximum interior space. Take the advantage to include high-end, maximum capacity, cooling allotment without the reduction of GPU length limitations when incorporating liquid cooling expansion for the ultimate cooling performance.

Dust Reduction
Super fine fan filters provide excellent protection and reduction against dirt and dust on the top, inside front panel, and bottom. The magnetic fan filter on the top simply attaches to the filter for dust filtration.

Modular Sound-damping Design
Built-in sound-damping panels incorporated on the top, front, and side panels of the Suppressor F51 chassis reinforce noise reduction for silent operation. Optimizing cooling performance with removable mounted top panels expand cooling configurations for both air and liquid cooling solutions. Design and build a custom leading-edge silent operation PC with options for 120/140/200mm cooling fans and liquid cooling support for single, dual and triple radiator applications.

Optimized Silent Operation
Preinstalled sound-damping foams of F51 reduce noise and acoustic levels within the entire chassis for extreme silent purpose.

Optimized Cooling Performance
After the removal of all sound-damping covers from the top panel, Suppressor F51 dissipates heat more efficiently. The temperature decreases 2.6°C/36.38°F without any sound damping covers.

Outstanding Ventilation
The Suppressor F51 delivers advanced cooling performance for DIY/AIO liquid cooling and air cooling systems. With wide top-to-bottom side ventilation grills, air intake is maximized with a single 200mm front fan built-in and includes options for up to (3) 120mm or 140mm front fans with the provided ODD bridge (optional) combined with (2) bottom mount 120mm fan locations for maximum fan space selection. Dissipate heat properly with (1) rear built-in 140mm fan and (3) sectional top mounts to manage proper air flow in and out.

High-end Complete Solution
The Thermaltake Suppressor F51 Window enables users to build a complete high-end system that supports up to triple 120/140mm liquid cooling radiators or up to 200mm case fans. With extended graphic card support (up to 465mm), the Suppressor F51 simultaneously protects the hardware and increases the CPU's overclocking potential for users looking to get the most out of their hardware. Most importantly, the Suppressor F51 delivers outstanding cooling efficiency, reduced exterior noise and dust signatures for ideal silent operation.

My Thoughts

Sometimes case manufacturers blatantly copy each other, and this in no more true than with the Thermaltake Suppressor F51. Looking at this case it is very easy to confuse it with the Fractal Design R5, even TinyTomLogan thought that this was a Fractal R5 on his first look, and he is using the R5 for his own home server build.

The feature list is more or less identical to the Fractal R5 with sound deadening foam, modular sound dampening and the same colour scheme. It is only when you open the case that you realise that this is a Thermaltake case. 

Thermaltake will be showing this case off at Computex 2015 at Taipei, showcasing to the world how great they great the are at copy/paste work, though if there is a case to copy the Fractal R5 is good one as it won our OC3D Gold Award and TTL's White Gold award.

One word for this case.... boring!.

Just the manufacturers name says it all for me really... plus such a total rip off, atleast come up with something on your own.
Haha, seems to even take the interior and all it's features, such as the vents, from the Fractal case. Big LOL on this one!.

Nice article though WYP! Quote

We already discussed this case briefly in the Whatsapp group (TPC brought it up a few days ago). It was said the case would cost around €130.... the R5 windowed costs €114.

I'd say 'nice try, Thermaltake' but honestly it's just a pathetic attempt.Quote

I... wait... why... what... no... just no... >_>Quote

Looks alright... about on par with Corsairs recent stuff. I can't see it being Fractal quality though. Pricing seems ridiculous but it actually looks good whether you regard it as a rip-off or not.

Infact I actually think it's a huge step forwards for Tt, it doesn't have their logo on the outside of it!

"Thermaltake, an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, has unveiled the Suppressor F51"

a LEADER builds its entire production on rip off designs and solutions?Quote
