We're fans of microATX towers here at TR, but there just aren't that many of them on the market. That's why Thermaltake's new Versa H15 has our attention. It's a nice-looking mini-tower with several enthusiast-friendly design choices.
The exterior features extensive areas of mesh for ventilation. The entire front panel appears to be perforated, as is a significant portion of the top panel. A single 120-mm exhaust fan handles active cooling out of the box, so every bit of vent area helps. One 5.25" drive bay sticks around for those who still need optical storage.
Pull off the side panels, and we get a look at the Versa's interior. Rubber cable grommets are nowhere to be found, but Thermaltake rolls the edges on the cable routing holes, which is the next-best thing.
Up to three 3.5" drives can fit in the H15's drive cage. Those using 2.5" storage can mount two drives behind the right-side panel and a third on the top of the 3.5" drive cage.
Enthusiasts looking to install extra-beefy cooling will find plenty of room inside the H15. The front and top panels can both accept radiators up to 240 mm long. The rear wall has mounting provisions for a 120-mm radiator, too. It looks like a top-mounted radiator might block the optical drive bay, but we think that's a fair trade. If you're hydrophobic, this case can only accept air coolers up to 6.1" tall.
Update: The Versa H15 will retail for $34.99 when it hits stores around late June. A windowed version is also available, and it'll go for $44.99.
