Thermaltake Celebrates its 10th Anniversary at CeBIT with an Unique Case

Today at CeBIT in Hannover, Thermaltake showed something that is fairly far outside of the regular mold. Having its name from the tenth anniversary of Thermaltake, the Level 10 case looks like nothing else seen before. The basic idea of this concept is to provide housing for each component of a normal PC individually. The case is formed out of four separate compartments - one for the optical drives, one for the six hard drives, one for the motherboard and one for the power supply. From the pictures we can see a lot of plastic is used, but no fans are visible. There's only one standard 120 mm (if I'm right) case fan to exhaust hot air from the motherboard chamber and that's all. We can expect more details on Thermaltake's 10th anniversary case at this year's Computex, that starts in June. The case is said to be launched then, and sell in limited quantity.

I've never been much of a Thermaltake fan, but this is admittedly pretty cool! I just wonder how its functionality stacks up against its novelty...

Well you have to think, it takes all the individual heat-producing components and puts them in their own separate compartments. There's got to be an advantage to that. I could see how that would help keep the motherboard/CPU/GPU really cool by removing heat produced by other items.

They are smoking used tampons.


It has piss poor cooling, and no rooms for ... anything. I would love to see Quad CF with ATI4870 cards in that system. It will melt the case and everything in it.
Its a funky design, but not practical.

Thermaltake has set a new bar for lack of .... pretty much everything.

I hope nobody gets in trouble for that photo, although they probably put the sign there to encourage it :)

I wonder if putting a "Don't purchase this product" sticker on a product would help it sell ?

Something to the effect of "This GFX cars is WAY too powerful dude - It'll blow yer whole rig, PLEASE DO NOT USE SUCH A POWERFUL VIDEO CARD!!!"

Oh yeah I forgot that you have used this before. Don't post what you don't know, BOSE. For all you know it has built in AC that will cool everything... So give it a chance and lets hope it makes the open market.

Just wanted to repeat that since it looks like a couple of special ed kids didn't read.

I do know for a fact that Termaltake makes crappy products. All their cases are pis poor quality, and they charge same price as better quality cases out there.

Their water cooling kits are terrible as well, i have their kit sitting in my garage for the last 3 years because no one wants to buy it.



A built in AC... yeah.. ooook!:rolleyes:
