The chassis Thermaltake Suppressor F51 It is part of the latest range of boxes, from the North American firm based in California. This model comes with the latest advances in sound reduction panels. In addition, you will be able to enjoy a unique cooling system thanks to its removable panels. And above, supports a wide variety of motherboards, ranging from Mini ITX to E-ATX.

Thermaltake Suppressor F51, made of SPCC steel

It must be said that we are going to meet one robust and somewhat bulky semi-tower. Something that we can quickly verify by taking a look at its dimensions: 525 x 230 x 577 mm. This Thermaltake Suppressor F51 enclosure It is made of SPCC steel, and has a fully opaque plastic front door that has a finish that imitates brushed aluminum.

The Thermaltake Suppressor F51 features a fully opaque plastic front door with a finish that mimics brushed aluminum.

Great acoustic insulation

Behind this door we find two bays of 5.25 “ and a second cover, behind which the dust filter for the front fans is located. It should be noted that in different parts of this structure, we are going to come across a foam layer that is going to be in charge of absorbing the noise.

Structure of the box

The main side comes with a huge clear acrylic window, which will allow us to see all the components of our team. On the contrary, the other side is smooth and opaque. On the back, the power supply is placed in the lower position and 8 expansion slots. Also not missing are the corresponding rear fan grilles (120/140 mm) and three half-inch diameter rubber grommets.

This box comes with a huge transparent acrylic window, which will allow us to see all the components of our equipment.

The top of this Thermaltake Suppressor F51 tower has been reserved for connections, where they excel among others, two USB 3.0 ports and two other 2.0, a controller for the fan and the classic 3.5 mm jack connectors, both for headphones and for the microphone.

Modular design to save more space

One of the things we like the most about this Model P / N: Thermaltake CA-1E1-00M1WN-02, is the wide space that we are going to find inside. With the possibility of installing E-ATX motherboards, although of course it is also compatible with ATX, Micro ATX and Mini ITX. In addition, we will have a fairly free interior, which is greatly appreciated.

Regarding CPU coolers, the height extends to 185mm, which is the maximum limit that can be found on the market today. Thanks to its innovative design, you will have the possibility to install bays of 5.25 ″ and 3.5 ″, without using tools. They can be removed to accommodate a custom liquid cooling system. As for graphics cards, the maximum length it supports ranges from 310 to 480 millimeters.

If you have little space to place your PC, the best solution is undoubtedly the Thermaltake Core V1. It is a chassis based on the ITX design with a square shape, manufactured in SPCC.
