[Review] Thermaltake Armor A90

22 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Thermaltake Armor A90 turned out to be a very impressive case. The overall look, with the angled lines and blue LED fans, won us over. The wire management was new to us, with the solution being to the side of the HDD bay, instead of behind the motherboard. At first we were skeptical, but after getting to toy with it during installation, we found it to be just as beneficial as routing cables behind the motherboard tray.

Thermaltake Armor A90 VL90001W2Z

Benchmark Reviews
17 September 2010
  • Conclusion: In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the Thermaltake Armor A90 a rating out of 10, a high score does not necessarily mean that it is better than a PC case reviewed by another writer here at Benchmark Reviews that may have got a lower score, it is however a good indicator of whether the product is good or not.
  • Pros: Very nice design, Good airflow, Plenty of room for installation, Effective cable management, Build quality, Bottom mounted PSU, Effective air intake filter, Mount for 2.5" drive, Motherboard installation simplified, Painted interior, Watercooling friendly, Three good security features
  • Cons: PSU installation is made more difficult and time consuming, PSU air intake filter is sub-par, Drive bay tool free catches are kind of pointless

Thermaltake Armor A90 Case

PC Magazine
17 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Thermaltake's Armor A90 is a good-looking gaming case that's hampered by its inability to hold oversized videocards such as the ATI Radeon HD 5970. If you don't use cards of that length (and are never planning to), the Armor A90 may well have you covered.
  • Pros: Sharp lines and asymmetric design give case an attractive appearance. Hole cut in motherboard tray allows mounting a CPU cooler from beneath.
  • Cons: Cannot fit longest video cards on the market. Front-panel ports are USB 2.0 only. PSU support bracket can be tricky to move. Semi-tool-free construction. Does not include brackets for installing 2.5-inch drives in 3.5-inch bays.

Thermaltake Armor A90 Case Review

Hi Tech Legion
1 September 2010
  • Summary: The Thermaltake Armor A90 performed as expected, posting decent thermal numbers while idle and under load.  The bundled fans pushed a lot of air and did so with minimal noise, resulting in a quiet very operation. The Thermaltake Armor A90 is a lot more attractive in person than the promotional photos show.  This isn't the first time I have seen cases which aren't very photogenic but are very striking once you see them in person.
  • Pros: Excellent and durable build quality., Spacious interior., Tool-free drive installation., Tool-free panel removal via thumbscrews., 2.5" drive mounting option., Extra PSU security mounts., High-Airflow design., Bundled low noise fans., Side panel window (albeit small), Peripheral and side panel security for LAN party gaming., Pre-punched watercooling holes., Support for aftermarket heatsinks up to 180mm tall.
  • Cons: Very little cable management options., Larger enthusiast GPUs will not fit if the 3.5" drive bays are completely populated., Solid front panel door negates the point of having meshed drive bay covers., No option to disable fan LEDs.

  • Summary: The overall design is not overwhelming but it is also not a “cookie cutter” that can suit anyone. It will be up to individual’s own judgment. The consistent coloring from inside and out gives it extra professional look and I believe in gaming case design world this is a must. Usually these types of computer builds will be shown off and it looks many times more impressive.

Thermaltake Armor A90 Mid-Tower PC Case Review

PC Perspective
16 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The days of window-less and beige PC cases are over and the age of aluminum, steel, mesh, acrylic, and LEDs reign supreme in today's mid-tower PC case market. Thermaltake has taken this evolution in case design a step further with the Armor A90 by adding multiple dimensions that create a stylish and revolutionary 3D surface that should appeal to gamers and PC enthusiasts.

Thermaltake Armor A90

29 June 2010
  • Summary: The Thermaltake Armor A90 makes one thing clear from the very beginning. The case is geared toward the gamer with a great looking design. The all black interior, bottom mounted PSU bay and anti-theft system all point towards that as well. Sure, the interior has not changed in the last year, as it still uses the same interior as the Element T and thus comes with all the same shortcomings.
  • Pros: Solid construction, Excellent design, Well placed I/O & buttons, Plenty of room for hard drives - up to six, Easy cable hiding makes for a really clean interior, Good airflow around the CPU, Fans are fairly quiet, Possibility to add three more fans, Real 3.5" drive bay, Plenty of space around the mainboard, Black interior, Informative packaging
  • Cons: Large graphics cards will not fit, No space for dual radiators inside, Expansion slot covers cannot be secured properly for transport, Bumps instead of real spacers on tray, No more thumb screws included, Tool-less system for HDD no good, No dust filter on side and inadequate one for the PSU intake area, Sharp edges in the PSU area, Water cooling holes not well placed & too small, Opening in mainboard tray too small
