System Construction in Thermaltake View 71 TG
First, I removed all the glass elements to reduce the weight of the tower. The glass plates on the front and bottom are each held with four thumbscrews, which have to be loosened to be able to remove them. The two side parts are doors with hinges that can be unhooked once the two screws have been removed. Then fix the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Aorus 6G into the vertical mount to demonstrate this. When removing the bracket I had to use a lot of patience and WD40, because Thermaltake tightened one of the screws very tight. Then fix the hard disk cages removed and thrown into the trash can, the SSD/HDD mounts to the right of the motherboard removed and the hardware clean. I used the AiO water cooling from my “old” case together with the mainboard in the Thermaltake View 71 TG RGB and then installed the power supply.
To install the SSD on the backside you have to remove the holder by loosening the thumbscrew. The bracket holds two SSDs or one HDD. In the next step I mounted the fans of the AiO water cooling system so that the “air” is blown against the windshield on the right side, from where it can escape through the generous distances to the chassis. The fans in the floor suck air into the interior of the Thermaltake View 71 TG RGB Full-Towers and contribute to cooling by supplying cool air to both the graphics card and the radiator. What I missed were well accessible openings to plug the connectors into the lower edge of the motherboard. Anyone who has seen other reviews of me will be surprised about the unusual “clean” cable management.
Since this is my personal hardware, which I gave a new case to, the graphics card looks a little different, but also comes from Gigabyte. I was able to save this specimen from exploitation in a mining rig and it has provided me with faithful services ever since. The hardware has a lot of space in the Thermaltake View 71 TG RGB and the airflow is great. The RGB fans are very discreet due to the tinted glass and if you look closely you can see the RGB control, which I did not place in the case, but on the outside. Optically this may not be very demanding, but it allows me to switch off the LEDs at the push of a button.
