With all kinds of DIY hardware adding cool appearance and RGB belief lights, how to maximize the color value of these hardware has become a problem that chassis manufacturers must consider. At present, the chassis side penetration design of many manufacturers has become standard, and the area of side penetration is getting larger and larger. Among them, the old electromechanical manufacturer TtYao is more and more outstanding in the aspect of chassis side penetration. The special chassis Tt P5 for panoramic perspective water cooling has become the royal chassis for many water cooling and MOD players. In addition, Tt did not relax in the side penetration of conventional chassis, which had brought the gull wing window chassis Tt red alert. In order to meet the higher demand of users, Tt has brought a high-quality enhanced version of TT View 37 RGB windowing chassis.
↑ TT View 37 RGB chassis is packaged on the front. the name after RGB not only represents the belief lamp of the fan, but also supports the synchronization of lights of asustek, jijia and microstar mainboards. the chassis has also passed the Tt LCS professional water cooling certification. Judging from the size of Tt logo, TT View 37 RGB is by no means an enhanced version of TT Red Alert. After all, capital TT represents high end.
↑ As another strength of Tt Yao Yue, TT View 37 RGB also adopts modular design on the back of the cabinet package. Everything that can be removed can be removed. Some designs that do not need an eyesore can be removed directly so as to better display the internal hardware.
↑ Open the package, TT View 37 RGB uses black foam packaging, which may be exclusive to upper case TT, because black foam can better protect the case and avoid damage to the case during transportation compared with white that is slag-dropped.
Write out the chassis when the first impression is some fat, chassis materials must be good. In addition, plastic wrap is also used to protect the side penetration to avoid scratching the side penetration and affecting the appearance.
↑ TtVIE37 RGB front side transparent uses blackened acrylic, which has a larger transparent area than TT red warning side, with only the front I/O part uncovered. The other difference is that the front of the chassis is designed smoothly, thus producing a strong mirror effect, which is reflected by accident.
↑ The front I/O interface is located at the top of the front panel. Compared with the top design, this front design is not easy to dust. The front I/O is restart, USB3.0 x 2, USB2.0 x 2, audio, power hard drive indicator light and power key respectively. The front four USB interfaces are luxurious, but they are standard in many high-end chassis.
↑ The front side of Tt View 37 RGB chassis is transparent to acrylic. Compared with TT red alert, it is not only the area of side penetration, but the entire side is fully transparent. Since the side and front are all side transparent acrylic and there is no way to open holes, the front panel side is designed with dust net air inlet holes for the normal heat dissipation performance of the chassis.
↑ Air inlets are still designed on the back of the chassis and the side of the front panel to enhance the cold air absorption of the front fan. The heat dissipation openings at the side plates are used for installing water-cooled water-cooled rows, and integrated water cooling is also possible. The side plate is slightly damaged.
↑ The top of the chassis also uses a large area of lateral penetration. Although it does not seem to have 100% lateral penetration coverage, it is parallel to the mounting back of the mainboard. Looking down at the chassis, you can clearly see the internal hardware, including the PCB of the mainboard.
↑ Dust-proof net design is adopted for the bottom of the chassis, the heat radiating holes at the power supply position and the heat radiating holes at the fan position, so that the dust removal is simple and convenient.
↑ at the bottom of the can be extended to install up to two chassis cooling fans, support 12cm and 14cm, but need to remove the mechanical hard disk installation tray, otherwise only one fan can be installed.
↑ a 14cm treing plus fan is standard on the back of the chassis and also supports a 12cm fan. Eight PCI slots are enough to meet the needs of user expansion, and Tt View 37 RGB also supports Tt classic vertical graphics card installation, which maximizes the appearance and color value of the front of the graphics card. Only TT compatible PCI-E extension cable is required. Unfortunately, the extension cable is not standard.
↑ the measured thickness of the steel plate at the rear power supply position is 0.91 mm.
↑ acrylic transparent side plate fixing buckle, remove the side plate in addition to unscrew the upper and lower two big screws, the four small screws also need to be removed.
↑ The design of fixing buckle is for a reason, because the side penetration area is too large and is made of acrylic material, so fixing is naturally necessary to stabilize the bend.
↑ One-piece acrylic is bent to form a side transparent. As both sides of the side plate are made of acrylic (the big black side is painted), the upper and lower ends of the transparent side plate are reinforced with steel plates.
↑ The measured thickness of steel plate with strengthened hardness is 1.59 mm.
↑ The measured thickness of side transparent acrylic at the left and right ends is 4.53 mm.
The internal space of the ↑ TT View 37 RGB cabinet can be removed from the design of the eyesore. The internal space of TT View 37 is quite spacious compared with some chassis designed independently for power supply, which should be the advantage of being fatter than ordinary machines.
↑ The front panel is equipped with two 14cm Ttiring Plus fans as standard. The mechanical hard disk is installed right next to the cooling fan, which is of great help to the cooling of the hard disk. In addition, accessories such as screws required for installation are located in the tray of the mechanical hard disk.
↑ All the installation accessories attached to the chassis, the white box contains the screws for conventional hardware installation, while the other parts are the components of TT Riing Plus fan, including installation screws, RGB control box and various wires, which is the biggest lighting point for the chassis.
↑ The main board mounting back plate adopts smooth design, but the concave-convex design is not adopted for more openings, which indicates that the thickness of the steel plate of the main board mounting back plate is definitely not thin. It is necessary to know that the mainboard mounting backboard serves to fix the mainboard and prevent the mainboard from deformation and damage. Therefore, some chassis made of ordinary materials will adopt concave-convex design to improve the hardness of the backboard.
↑ The measured thickness of the steel plate of the motherboard mounting back plate is 0.92 mm.
↑ Trapezoidal bracket for vertical video card installation. Since compatible Tt video card extension cable is not attached to the chassis, the conventional video card installation method can be selected for removal.
↑ 14cm TT Riing Plus RGB fan, model TT-1425. The capital TT is needless to say, this fan is the first choice of many high-end players, of course, the price is not cheap.
↑ TT View 37 RGB chassis comes standard with fans and installation accessories. In fact, this is a set of retail TT Riing Plus H14 chassis fans. The selling price of the fans alone in a certain east reaches 559 yuan. All three fans can buy a mid-range chassis. Therefore, TT View 37 RGB chassis will not be cheap, and it is inevitable to break the thousands.
↑ The installation method of TT RIING PLUS fan and control box on ASUS mainboard, each wire has a corresponding number and can be connected according to the instructions. Riing fan has built-in more than a dozen color controls and supports 256-color RGB and 7 LED lighting modes. Even if the motherboard does not support it, its own RGB lights are enough to play with.
↑ Inside the back of the chassis, due to the relatively fat volume, the space on the back is also very spacious. Special wiring does not exist, and the side plate can be easily covered with any tie, with the exception of wiring obsessive-compulsive disorder.
↑ The radiating holes of the back side plate are designed with magnet dust-proof net.
↑ The measured thickness of the steel plate of the back side plate is 0.92 mm.
↑ It is obviously impossible to leave such a spacious back space only for routing. Therefore, TT View 37 RGB back has designed four sets of hard disk mounting trays, which can mount up to 8 SSD solid state disks and 4 HDD mechanical disks. In combination with the front, 3 mechanical disks or 3 SSD can be mounted. This expansion is powerful enough, and ordinary players can’t use so much at all, can they?
↑ SSD installation shows that each set of trays can be equipped with 2 SSD or 1 mechanical hard disk.
↑ 3 SSD or 3 mechanical hard disks can be installed in the hard disk compartment located in the front of the chassis. considering that many players will be able to use them later, they can choose to unscrew four screws and remove them directly. then water-cooled players can happily install split water-cooled accessories. Of course, air cooling can also be removed to avoid blocking the internal RGB fan from affecting light pollution.
The hard disk bin holder at the bottom of the ↑ can also be removed and kept out of the way. The two 14cm Riing fans are all displayed after the hard disk compartment is removed. There are also three 12cm or 14cm fan positions beside the chassis wiring holes. Water cooling row or fan can be installed. This is also the reason why the back side plate has heat dissipation holes.
↑ Remove the ladder-shaped vertical display card mounting bracket, so far, the modularization of TT View 37 RGB chassis has been basically completed. Compared with Tt P5, the highly modularized chassis is relatively simple.
↑ The front panel is designed with three fan positions. It can be equipped with three 12cm or 14cm fans or two 20cm fans. The highlights and functional design of the chassis itself are almost introduced. The following is a look at the installation effect.
↑ install power supply, power supply is Tt Toughpower Grand RGB 650W, full module gold medal certification. The power supply fan independently supports RGB belief lamps. In fact, the upward fan can better display the lighting effect, but it is still installed downward for heat dissipation.
↑ Install the motherboard with the following configuration: CPU Ruilong 1700X+RGB C6H motherboard+Owl U12S heat sink+Kimbang ROG custom memory!
↑ install a video card, a high-end public card used by real businessman Lao Huang. Can’t, now is really can’t afford to buy a new card, low-end and despises.
↑ An embarrassing scene occurred during wiring … ROG C6H motherboard does not have ASUS AURA’s programmable 3-pin connector, only 4 pins, while TT Riing fan’s control box only supports the latest 3 pins, so SG synchronization cannot be played, fortunately Riing fan’s RGB light is also very playable, but this will also be a great pity, and the cost of replacing C7H is somewhat high.
↑ There is no way to synchronize with the main board lights, so only the control box provided by Riing fan will be used. Since the control box needs to be placed inside, you can’t always remove the side panel every time you play with lights, can you? Therefore Tt is very considerate. Riing fan accessories are attached with a PCI control panel, the keys on which are the same as those of the control box, and this PCI control panel supports two control boxes, one control box and three fans, that is, a total of six RGB fans. Only the interface of this PCI control board is at the top, wiring is a problem, bending is too serious to damage the interface, I hope to consider compatibility issues and put the connector in the back.
↑ The light control board at the PCI baffle is not very convenient to place at the back, but the optical drive position of the front panel is not supported by many high-end chassis. This is also the reason why Tt designed PCI control board to be placed at the back. After all, Riing Plus fan has only one way to be compatible with most chassis on the market.
↑ The front side of the installation is completed. RGB light control is done for the time being. In fact, the control box can be installed on the back and then fixed with double-sided adhesive tape. Here, it is placed on the front for display.
Arrows time relationship literally tied the line, in fact is deliberately, in order to show the internal space behind the enough spacious.
↑ The color value of the back of the side plate on the cover has improved a lot. Indeed, the transparent side plate is one of the highlights of the chassis.
Write appearance appreciation.
↑ Power on for test.
↑ Turn on the machine and illuminate it once.
↑ Appearance Appreciation
↑ The lighting effect at the bend of acrylic side plate has the visual effect of water ripples.
↑ Vertical display card installation shows that trapezoidal support needs compatible Tt display card extension line, but it should be noted that the complete range cannot be too large, otherwise it is very easy to damage extension line, Tt should consider a 90 degree extension line.
↑ Remove the two vertical baffles to install the video card.
↑ cover the side plate, leaving sufficient air duct space between the acrylic side plate and the video card for heat dissipation. On the contrary, Tt Red Alert is very close after installing the video card vertically, which is very unfavorable to the heat dissipation of the video card. This should be the main reason why TT View 37 RGB chassis adopts the overall wider design, but unfortunately only single card is supported when installing the video card vertically.
↑ lighting effect after installation of vertical display card.
Finally: As a chassis with a positioning of over 1,000 yuan, TT View 37 RGB is still worthy of this price in terms of materials, especially the standard expensive TT Riing Plus fan, which is also one of the biggest highlights of the chassis. It is thanks to the blessing of Riing RGB fan that the large side penetration characteristics of View 37 RGB chassis can be fully and better displayed. In addition, the chassis also has many minor defects, such as acrylic paint is very easy to scratch, transparent side plate bending can only choose acrylic understandable, but the front can use tempered glass, believe that this will be higher, of course, this cost is also a problem, but also consider the transportation of violent courier caused by breakage, which undoubtedly increases the cost after sales. The chassis has many advantages, large space and strong expansion. For players who don’t like exotic shapes, the square and concise design is very suitable for most people.
