Not one to let Sharkoon enjoy the limelight all on its own, Thermaltake has revealed a mid-tower desktop case of its own, one that Amazon's German website is already accepting pre-orders for.
Amazon has the dedicated page for this product right here, though it does not offer any photos of it. Fortunately, the folks at Guru3D got their hands on a couple of them.
The pictures show a black-coated chassis that has a steel structure and a front panel that is probably made of brushed aluminum.
The price is of 70.89 Euro, which means that the tag in the United States will be of $70.89 to $94.84, give or take.
Urban S21 has a brushed metal front door that hides three optical disk drive bays (5.25-inch) and six HDD bays.
What the door does not hide is the I/O panel. Located just above it, it includes two USB 3.0 ports and the obligatory audio jacks.
We should probably elaborate on the storage bays. While the 5.25-inch bays are normal enough, the six HDD/SSD bays are not.
Only one is compatible with just 3.5-inch drives. The other five can hold both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hard disk drives or solid-state drives.
It all points towards a very high maximum storage capacity for any computer that uses Urban S21 as a home, though it will depend on how many SATA ports the micro-ATX or ATX motherboard has.
Moving on, Thermaltake included a pair of 120mm fans, one on the front (intake) and one at the back. Three more such spinners can be added to the top, side and bottom if so desired.
Other features include a heightened foot stand, pre-mounting holes for mainboards and CPU coolers, and rubber grommeted holes for Advanced Cable Management and Liquid Cooling System.
Shipments of the Thermaltake Urban S21 desktop enclosure will begin on March 15, 2013.
