Excerpt: If you follow our reviews you are probably very familiar with the Thermaltake Level 10 GT cases (check out our standard and Snow Edition reviews if you aren’t). They are full-tower (read: massive) cases packed with just about every feature you could want. We have reviewed these cases very highly in the past, and were therefore excited when we heard Thermaltake was releasing a new one.
Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition Case Review
26 September 2012
Summary: Thermaltake got a lot of exposure a few years ago with its Level 10 computer case. At release it cost in the neighborhood of $1000 and declared styling by BMW. Thermaltake now has variants of that case which are much more affordable but do keep with the styling queues and functionality of the original.
Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition Full Tower Chassis
27 February 2012
Excerpt: Back in 2009, Thermaltake released the Level 10 case. Designed in collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the Level 10 case had a unique compartmental design and featured styling that was far from the typical computer case. Winning many industry design awards, the Level 10 case acted as a flagship for Thermaltake. But with a price tag of $799.99US, the cost of buying Thermaltake's pinacle of design and style is out of reach for most people.
Excerpt: Today cases are evolving every day in look, functionality, and practicality. Most cases offer a great solution but obvious flaws in one of these fields. With that we have found the Holy Grail: The Level 10 GT from Thermaltake. We have seen and reviewed the “normal” version of the Level 10 GT but today we have the Snow Edition: A White rendition of the already popular case.
Summary: It's hard not to give this case a perfect score, it really is. With a laundry list of enthusiast features it's not worth it to rehash all of them, rather let me highlight my experience with this case. Thermaltake has taken an idea of inspiration and developed it, then re-developed it again into one of the best cases currently on the market.
Pros: Amazing exterior design and looks, Three 200 mm ColorShift fans, Six interactive lighting settings, Five hot swap bays, Very well thought out internal structure, Many cutouts for cable routing, Spacious enough for water cooling, Sleeved internal cables, Eight expansion slots, USB 3.0 connectivity, Can easily house the longest of video cards, Three large removable dust covers, Sleek (hidden) panel door button, HDD lock, Panel door lock, Expansion slot extension and loc...
Cons: Expensive, USB 3.0 connection via ports, not onboard, Massive size and weight
Conclusion: Design features that I really like include the fan connector on the door, the cable management system combined with the pre-installed cables, the cooling setup and the five hot-swappable 3.5” hard drive bays. Internally the Level 10 GT really is a thing of beauty, it’s a shame we can’t turn it inside out. The Level 10 GT is very easy to work with and has ample room to install components such as high-end graphics cards.
Excerpt: This is the new Level 10 GT Snow Edition case from Thermaltake. This is a full tower case that sports a very nice black and white paint scheme. Thermaltake has a long history of producing quality PC products at an affordable price. For the features that this case has its price of about 290 dollars this is actually a pretty good price for what you get. This case is designed from their original Level 10 that was quite a bit larger and also much more expensive.
Excerpt: Computers play a huge role in the design of our vehicles, but what would happen if a car manufacturer had a hand in the design of a computer chassis? More to the point, what would it look like if a luxury car manufacturer had a hand in that design? Thermaltake and BMW decided to find out. It’s an interesting collaboration, and it certainly produced a couple of showpieces.
