Currently looking at the TT Lvl 10 GT (NCIX.com - Buy Thermaltake Level 10 GT Black E-ATX Modular Tower Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 5X3.5INT No PS Front USB3.0 - Thermaltake - VN10001W2N - in Canada ), and need somebody to explain why I shouldn't pick one up.....

Requirements are:
  • Unique
  • WC compatible out of the box
  • Full size
  • $250 - $300
  • Decent cooling
  • Decent Cable Management
Nice to have: (not even sure if the Lvl 10 GT has these yet... ;) )

    • USB 3.0 front panel connection(s)
    • Esata front panel connections
    • Easy access fan filters
    • Side fan for extra GPU cooling
    • Side Window
    • Choice for Upper or Lower PSU mount
    • Aluminum construction
Anywise... as it stands, I'm mostly sold on the TT, but am more than willing to entertain suggestions that I may not have considered, or conversely, revisit my choice if somebody has a good reason why I shouldn't pick it.
My vote is simple, support unique designs out there. Buy it, you want it.

Heh... wish I was close enough to a distributer so that I could actually get my hands on one.... I love the look, but I'm a bit leery about the amount of plastic. (wish I had $700 to drop on the real thing.... ;) ).

Well.... the dirty deed is done (subject to a PM with newegg). Guess I'll have to let my better half know that she's bought me a new computer case for under the tree........ :)

Nice Steve hope you enjoy it!

I was thinking the same I wanted a alu one but dont know about the design, wish there was one local to run my hands over.
But then again I made a vow years ago not to buy another TT case.

I did the same at one point. But the allure of the new Armor Series brought me back after being up close to a few at my local Tigerdirect. The White TT Level 10 GT is really just a sight to behold. And since I got my A90 I've been one happy puppy. I think SS will really enjoy his case.

Heh... little bit too long in the tooth, and a ton of work to make it unique.

Supposed to be a TT lvl 10 GT, but we'll see what NCIX says about the mistake I made on the Price match (typed in $229.29 vice $229.99).

Heh.... thread resing a Mod's thread with a comment that makes it clear you didn't read the thread at all (I purchased the case a month ago.... :) ) in order to get the magic 25 posts required for BST is never a good idea..........
