TTGI Cases

In our opinion, SuperFlower (also TTGI in the US) could be one of the most underrated PC case companies around.  How come you haven't heard of them?  SuperFlower does a lot of OEM stuff that ends up labeled as something else.  Our Kingwin 436-WM from last year is identical to SuperFlower's SF-201 chassis.  Many of the excellent qualities of Lian Li's cases are found in the SuperFlower/TTGI design.

A few months ago we took some pictures of another neat case, the TT-101.  Even though it is a SFF case, there are many similarities between the SF-201 and the TT-101 including acrylic bezels and forward USB/1934/LineIn /LineOut.

TTGI also has several updates on the TT-201 design; The TT-561.  Many of the smaller annoyances like issues with the power button have been corrected; as well as the acrylic bezel in front has been widened to ward damage.  The rear 80mm exhaust has also been replaced by a single 120mm fan (which at a lower RPM sounds considerably quieter than the dual 80mm fans on the TT-201).  However, the largest advantage of the TT-561 over the TT-201 is the 0.7mm steel construction.  The 201 and 301 remain our favorite cases, but for those on a budget the TT-561 retains almost all of the advantages of the TT-201 but costs $20-$30 less.

    Kristopher, just to correct it, Fortron is an actual manufacturer. Fortron is the brandname of the FSP Group (www.fsp-group.com.tw) which is producing a lot of OEMs. OCZ is buying from Topower and so on... Reply

    #20 - NP. You will need to go to the forums and post that though to get any answers.

    I am new to AnandTech, but am already impressed with the quality of the reviews. Any roundup/ review of cases contemplated? I am going to assemble my first machine once the 939 mb's and socket 939 FX-53's come out. I plan to use two Raptor 74G 10K rpm HDs. I have no plans to overclock, and don't care whether the case has a side window or led fans, but would like a mid-tower case (preferably AL) with GOOD cooling (preferably 120 mm intake and exhaust fans with filters). Also, it'd be great to have a case that is reasonably quiet, reasonably easy to work with, and won't require a second mortgage. Any suggestions? If this is not the right place to post this, please excuse my error. Reply

    17: It dissapates 150W from just the CPU.

    If GBT is going to give you a front-panel knob for the HSF, why don't they put a temperature display on it too??

    Ummm... if the computer draws 200W, and the case can only dissipate 150W, then you've got a big problem!

    The CoolerMaster heatsink looked like the Aerocool HT-101 and Thermaltake CL-P0024 (TOWER112). However, the Thermaltake version can use 9cm fans. Hopefully CoolerMaster heatsink can support bolt-on mounting instead of just the unstable clip. Reply

    I really liked this article. I wish you guys would do more misc computer equipment reviews. Perhaps a sound related review of speakers or sound cards.

    Definatly looking forward to reviews of the Heatsinks and a battle between OCZ and PC Power and cooling. It would be nice to see some competition for PC P&C in the high end overclocking PS's, perhaps drive them to lower prices a bit. :)

    OMG! I just did a Google on the TNN-500A. That Zalman noiseless case is $1200!?! Are they nucking futs?? Noiseless or not, heatpipes or not, NO PC case is worth that kind of money! Reply

    Actually, fortron doesnt make em either. They have the same OEM though.
