Introduction to the Thermaltake Level 10 GT

Thermaltake has set the world on end many times with some of their products. The first would probably have to be their Big Typhoon CPU cooler as it was a great heatsink that performed with the best of them, but it also air cooled some of the fastest processors at the time. Then there was the SwordM full-sized tower since it was quite different from anything else on the market at that time, with its had hydraulic side panel and top led. The all aluminum and fully functional case was sought after by many, but not easy affordable. Thermaltake is back at it again.

About a year ago Thermaltake released the ultimate PC case, simply named Level 10. This new case turned the heads of all that got a glance of it. The all-aluminum construction and BMW engineering made many of us go looking for the case on retail shelves. However, once found it made us shake in our pants, as the price was much more than most people would consider to pay for a case. While it was no doubt a visual and technological marvel, the $700 price tag sadly meant it was out of grasp for the majority of the consumer DIY market.

Thermaltake decided to take another swing at it though, and hitting at a much better price point they have come out with the new Level 10 GT. This go around it can be had for about $270, yet it still provides you with many of the functions of the original Level 10. Hinged door panels, hot-swap hard drive bays and support for water-cooling are all offered in the GT. Sound like it might be the case for you? Stick tight and find out as we take a look at the case in detail today.

Thermaltake’s take on the Level 10 GT

Following the high-profile launch of Level 10 Super Gaming Modular Case, the design collaboration between Thermaltake and BMW Group DesignworksUSA, in 2009, Thermaltake looks to invigorate the PC enthusiasts with the latest Level 10 GT computer case. The design language of the Level 10 GT expresses a passion for visual aesthetics deriving from demanding and immersive game play and multimedia entertainment enthusiasm. Modern games and entertainment applications also require highly advanced hardware configurations, which at the same time request more space and optimized ventilation than conventional hardware. With EasySwap Pitstop 5 every HDD/SDD has its own removable tray, EasySwap in hot-plug mode within seconds. With this users have greatest storage flexibility and maximum data transfer speeds you need. Modern multimedia peripherals operate at tremendous data transfer velocities, with 2 USB 3.0 connectors right on the top of the Level 10 GT you be guaranteed to always enjoy SuperSpeed entertainment. The concept of the clear lines of the outside design of the Level 10 GT is just as well continued in the inside. An advanced and highly convenient cable management bundles respective cables almost like in tunnels behind a back plate. Your system shines in clarity, easy access to all components is warranted for and even ventilation is greatly improved. High tech components are prone to heat impacting longevity and performance. For this vital reason the implementation of Thermaltake's QuadFan (of which three also feature ColorShift) Ventilation concept creates an ideal environment for your components to unfold their full potential. Perception of what and how it is surrounding us, can have strongly inspiring, motivating and vitalizing effects on us. With triple ColorShift three LED fans with five sets of illuminations let you get into the driver seat of your respective moods. Or if so wanted, you turn them all entirely. At times enthusiasm may push you to the ultimate limits, to where you have not been before. Particularly for those who are bound to go beyond these restrictions, i.e. tune and clock your setting, further measures to keep the heat down might be asked for. Ready for Liquid Cooling Systems you can rest assured to keep your coolness. Powerful performance needs space to unfold, this is also the case for highly advanced graphics cards, which the length has grown considerable over the past years and is most likely to grow even further in the future. With space for up to 37 cm oversized cards, there is sufficient space to stay future proof.
