Thermaltake has recently added another chassis to their Urban lineup.  A modern update of the classic Lanbox Lite chassis (also by Thermaltake), the Urban SD1 is designed for builders that are building around the mATX/mITX form factors and still want room for large graphics cards, AIO liquid coolers and multiple drives.  Utilizing modular internals in a chassis not much bigger than many ITX boxes, the Urban SD1 promises an easy building experience.  Weighing in at 5.8 kg and with dimensions of 239 x 280 x 456mm (HWD), will this sophisticated relative of the Lanbox / Armor A30 deliver on its claims of high-performance in a micro-ATX form factor?  Benchmark Reviews was given an opportunity to build a system in the Urban SD1 (model CA-1A9-00S1NN-00), so let’s see what changes have been incorporated in this new member of the Urban chassis family.

    After building a lot of small form factor systems in the last couple of years, I’ve become a big fan of SFX power supplies. One, specifically: the Silverstone ST45SF-G. With short, modular cables it’s much easier to fit into a mITX or mATX case than a standard power supply, and at 450W it’s enough for a relatively beefy system, although a high-end SLI or CrossFireX system will probably require something larger.
