Introduction

Today we are reviewing the Thermaltake Suppressor F51 mid-tower chassis.

Thermaltake is a company that needs no introductions. To be honest, the reason most of us know the name is because you've probably, at some point in the past decade, had one (or more) of its products installed your system. In the early days, the Thermaltake brand was synonymous with performance cooling but, over the last few years, it is hard to find a segment of the industry the company hasn't expanded into.

We have featured numerous products from Thermaltake in our product reviews over the years, everything from the company's cooling products and award winning power supplies to audio components and its uniquely distinctive computer cases.
