My System Specs

Default Thermaltake Soprano DX reviewed by TechGage

Affordable, classic styling, well constructed, yes..... functional? maybe. Truthfully it seems like it's time to retire this old mare- I think the fat lady is all sung out and the curtain has fallen- ok, I'll shut up

Here's TechGage's pros and cons:
  • Pros
  • Awesome build quality
  • Aluminum, aluminum, aluminum!
  • (Mostly) Tool-less installation
  • Decent cooling solution
  • Cons
  • Frustrating power supply installation; tight fit with the USB and audio wires
  • Awkward I/O panel placement
  • Longer video cards will not fit without removing HDD cage
  • Design annoyance with the first optical drive bay

I didn't even bother to read the review because I've already owned and sold one of those cases. It's cheaply built. Looks good from a distance but close up you see the flimsy door, the fragile lid on top that accesses the usb ports, the fitting of the different metal parts didn't exactly line up...you get the idea.

Haven't read the review at all. Don't like Thermaltake's cases lol Actually i don't like much things that they do. Especially there Watercooling kit... I heard so much nightmare stories about there products.
