Summary: This is a great case if you have a lot of components you want to put into a small form factor case. I had 2 SSD drives, 2 HDD drives, 2 optical drives, and an add-on USB multi-function card reader. I had been using a mid-tower case but since I wanted the PC off the floor I found the tower case to be a bit too bulky and noise to put on my desk. So I switched to this one and it has worked well.
Summary: Great case with a great look. It's kinda cramped, but you don't buy a Mini Tower for its size. I can run both of my 680's in sli in here just fine. Removing the HDD cage gives me a lot more room and makes cable routing much easier though.
Not Tinker friendly -- No water cooling - 90cm'ish clearance for after market cooler (forget about serious overclocking)

Summary: Make sure you have every last piece and part that you want to install before even starting to build with this case. Everything is a tight fit and you will have a hard time adding a hard drive, aftermarket cooler front or rear fan. The case is quiet, I think my cpu fan is the loudest fan in the system -- just forget about a water cooled solution. I love this case, looks great -- I regret buying it just because I like to tinker and this is not a tinker freindly case.
Summary: The case itself showed up at my doorstep 3 days earlier than expected. Even with this hurricane hitting the east coast. I thought it would have been delayed. I'm pleased that it wasn't. After looking at the case online and examining all of the modular trays,bays,ect. I thought to myself this would make a great gaming lan case and it comes apart easily enough to mod the case for future endeavors.
Summary: The case is really beautiful, however it is larger than I expected (Try sending it with your checked baggage can be annoying :-). It was easy to assemble it but I have a complain: there is only 9cm/3.54inches between the Intel processor and the top of the case; this limits the models of coolers you can place on it.
Summary: Honestly, you could kill a man with this case. It's solid, sturdily built, and it's only real fault is it's utter lack of directions. Sadely, it's that utter lack of directions that made me have to take a star off, simply because it's largely unclear which screws are used to do what in some cases (such as screwing in the hard drive) as well as just how much of the case you can disassemble and take out, and, also in the case of the hard drive bays, how to actually go...
Great Design, very solid case. Great case for my needs

Summary: I bought this case not intending to use for a Gaming machine, but just because of its mATX form factor and the nice sturdy design. I was not fooled at all by the quality of this case.. Everything is built solid from the bottom to the top. The only complaints I have about the case are the limiting space for an after market cpu cooler between the cpu socket and the power supply. You are limited to 90mm in height.
Summary: I ordered the a30 everything came in order and on time. the 230mm fan on the top dosent provide much airflow because the psu is covering more then 60% of the fan even wih a modular psu. the case is vary well made and verry solid but if i had to buy another m-atx i would go with the NZXT VULC-001BK Vulcan it dosent limit your cpu cooler like the a30 does with its max 90mm tall limit.
Summary: Das Armor A30 sieht top aus, da kann man nichts sagen. Und insgesamt ist es auch gut und solide verarbeitet. Bei meinem Gehäuse war die Schraube für die Einbaukartenhalterung falsch in das Gewinde gedreht, da könnte Thermaltake mal ein bisschen besser auf den Herstellungsprozess achten. Für USB 3.0 liegt leider kein Adapter für Mainboards mit onboard-USB 3.0 bei. D.h.
Summary: Das Gehäuse bietet für seine geringen Ausmaße perfekten Platz für auch großere Gaming-Anwendungen im mATX-Format. Bei der Unterbringung der Hardware gab es keinerlei Probleme und Platz war genügend vorhanden.Leider war das Gehäuse allerdings nicht 100% passgenau, sodass dieses an manchen Stellen "zurechtgebogen" werden musste um richtig zu sitzen, als hätte es sich beim Transport verzogen.Das Verstauen der Kabel mit etwas Frickelei gut machbar.
