Since 1999 Thermaltake has taken a no holds barred approach to case design. From standard mid tower cases to Home Theater it seems they have left no Genre untouched. When they partnered with BMW to design the Level 10 case critics were floored. When we got our first look at this case at CES 2011 we were very excited to see this come to market. Our drooling has finally paid off, today we are reviewing the next Generation of Level 10 The GT.
Lets see what Thermaltake has to say about it:
“Following the high-profile launch of Level 10 Super Gaming Modular Case, the design collaboration between Thermaltake and BMW Group DesignworksUSA, in 2009, Thermaltake looks to invigorate the PC enthusiasts with the latest Level 10 GT computer case. The design language of the Level 10 GT expresses a passion for visual aesthetics deriving from demanding and immersive game play and multimedia entertainment enthusiasm. Modern games and entertainment applications also require highly advanced hardware configurations, which at the same time request more space and optimized ventilation than conventional hardware. With EasySwap Pitstop 5 every HDD/SDD has its own removable tray, EasySwap in hot-plug mode within seconds. With this users have greatest storage flexibility and maximum data transfer speeds you need. Modern multimedia peripherals operate at tremendous data transfer velocities, with 2 USB 3.0 connectors right on the top of the Level 10 GT you be guaranteed to always enjoy SuperSpeed entertainment. The concept of the clear lines of the outside design of the Level 10 GT is just as well continued in the inside. An advanced and highly convenient cable management bundles respective cables almost like in tunnels behind a back plate. Your system shines in clarity, easy access to all components is warranted for and even ventilation is greatly improved. High tech components are prone to heat impacting longevity and performance. For this vital reason the implementation of Thermaltake’s QuadFan (of which three also feature ColorShift) Ventilation concept creates an ideal environment for your components to unfold their full potential. Perception of what and how it is surrounding us, can have strongly inspiring, motivating and vitalizing effects on us. With triple ColorShift three LED fans with five sets of illuminations let you get into the driver seat of your respective moods. Or if so wanted, you turn them all entirely. At times enthusiasm may push you to the ultimate limits, to where you have not been before. Particularly for those who are bound to go beyond these restrictions, i.e. tune and clock your setting, further measures to keep the heat down might be asked for. Ready for Liquid Cooling Systems you can rest assured to keep your coolness. Powerful performance needs space to unfold, this is also the case for highly advanced graphics cards, which the length has grown considerable over the past years and is most likely to grow even further in the future. With space for up to 37 cm oversized cards, there is sufficient space to stay future proof.”
That’s quite a mouthful. In summation Thermaltake feels quite strongly that that the case they are releasing to the world is downright amazing. I’m worried about having my expectations this high, it is going to be very easy to be let down. Let’s take a look and see how this holds up to the high hopes.
