Thermaltake Armor A30 Case Review: Opening the Puzzle Box

24 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Reviewing the Thermaltake Armor A30 puts me in an odd position, because as I mentioned in the intro, this is a case that's nightmarish to assemble but very good at its job once it's together. I'm left with very mixed feelings about what Thermaltake has done here, and I think any reader should be, too.

  • Excerpt: Thermaltake's mATX entry in the Armor series, the A30, is an interesting and robust case targeted at gamers who occasionally may wish to schlep their machines to a lan party or other gaming event. It has, however, proved to be a mixed bag when subjected to performance testing.

Thermaltake Armor A30 case review

1 August 2011
  • Conclusion: I really liked the Armor A90 when it was reviewed , and my opinion of it has only improved over time.  The Armor A30 is another top-notch product in the series.  While its assembly quirks can be a little difficult to work with at first, those are quickly overcome. The price may be a little steep, but considering the combination of features and its build quality the cost is worth it.

Thermaltake Armor A30 mATX Case

18 May 2011
  • Summary: The Thermaltake Armor A30 MATX case is a pretty decent choice for people looking for a good quality case to pack to a LAN, but don't want to bother with a large mid-tower or full-tower beast.  It has great high-quality construction, tons of front connectivity, supports USB 3.0 is quiet with great airflow and is quite modular.  The major downside to this is the fact that it requires a lot of screws to make this happen.
  • Pros: Sleek little MATX Chassis, Room for large graphics cards, Supports lots of drives, Decent cooling setup, Removable Motherboard tray, Modular design
  • Cons: Tedious to work in, Lots of screws to keep things rigid, Open holes with negative pressure will suck in dust, Sides don't come off for easier access - all done through the top

Thermaltake Armor A30 Case

  • Excerpt: The Thermaltake A30 is the latest in the highly successful Armor series and with this case Thermaltake is targeting hardcore gamers with a Small Form Factor (SFF) design.  As a LAN party fanatic I have tried on several occasions to make a SFF case work for the portability advantages with mixed success.  The A30 hopes to win me over with a slightly larger chassis and the ability to run full size components, even today's top video cards.

  • Summary: Whether you are looking for a smaller chassis for your main computer, an easily portable gaming system or a unique looking HTPC, the Thermaltake Armor A30 would make a nice selection in any of these circumstances. The aggressive design falls right in line with the other cases in the Armor series which may or may not fit your tastes. I personally like the angled lines and perforated front bezel.
