Default Thermaltake Armor A30 Mini HTPC/Gaming Tower review [Techspot]

A new case from Thermaltake has been released that can appeal to LAN party gamer and HTPC users alike. Although the style may not be very "htpc-like", this case more than makes up for it with innovative features and impressive cooling. On top of all that, the case can fit a 12'' long video card without problems!

Looks neat. I'd love to see the end installation inside though, with all the cables hooked up.

that is sick, absolutely sick! and it looks like you can put longer cards too!

imagine showing up with a nice little 2500k on a matx and the biggest baddest card your psu
can take to a lan party?

That's what I'm thinking too. Wish this was around while I was in school...it would have made lugging a desktop home much easier.

back in the day a bud fashioned a relatively small crapbox, but he put like the top end card, top end cpu,etc.. anyway he made it look like it came

from the street on purpose. we hit this lan party, ppl were laughing at him real bad. then he started doing some

'warm up benches' and them buggers started getting anxious haha

So basically, it is an uglified rip off of the Silverstone Sugo design.

Disagreeing whole-heartedly there. This case has a huge exhaust fan, and 100% modular design, including motherboard tray. I dont think any Sugo has all that.

I'm not quite sure this is a Sugo in disguise.

I'd have to see it up close, to be sure.

I have owned the Sugo before and this looks way better. I think it could actually have a top of the line dual GPU's in it.
