A Close Look at the Thermaltake Level 10 Extreme Gaming Station Case

We got a chance to take a close look at the Thermaltake Level 10 enclosure. It is constructed of solid aluminum panels. The full name of the chassis is "Level 10 Extreme Gaming Station" and will be available as a limited edition. Thermaltake is aiming for a 750 US Dollar price point. We have managed to take an exclusive sneak peak at the inside as well as the rear panel.


As you can see, each compartement is isolated. The power supply and each hard drive bay are seperated. The mainboard one can easily be opened and as you can see, the cables are routed under the mainboard tray. We got a quick glance at the cable routing possibility as well.

If I was paying $750 for a case, it better have a damn side window to show off my cheap hardware, this does not. Looks like shit anyway :p And $750 would translate to €750 if it was sold here, lol.

Design and innovation are very cool. Love how they use Thermaltake branded items (they should make GPUs too now and memory). The price isn't justified. I would not pay more than 250 for a case even though there are some I want. I would take this but not for that price.

WOW! the design is amazing, different, and unique, but its like paying the $800 for a CM 830 custom paint job. just not practical

I actually like this case, very much o_o

I'm a big fan of a unique yet simplistic design, and brush aluminum is always a plus for me.

This definitely isn't worth $750 for me. The most I'd pay for this is $125-$150.

Compartmentalized Case, Very Tacticle Stylishing, im unsure about the Mobo Compartment, doesnt look wide enough to support a slew of Air Coolers. Also what is cooling the Harddrives?

It's like they stuck a peice of metal in every nook and cranny air is supposed to flow through. Don't get me wrong, it is a neat idea but it belongs in a museum of computing history and not a computer. Case innovations are severely limited by the components inside which haven't changed much in over a decade.

Man, who let the "I hate Thermaltake" gang out of its cage? You ain't going to be buying it anyway, so quit moaning about the price.

Love it or hate it, this thing has a pretty limited appeal, meaning they are not going to be making it in vast numbers. Being a rather complicated bit of kit, I think the price is probably justified. It can't be easy to manufacture.

And all you guys knocking it for being ugly, take a look at your case, let's face it, it's probably just a box, perhaps adorned with flashy or shiny bits, but just a rectangular box. To me that is pretty damn ugly.

This is different, radical, in both senses of the word. Reminds me of the Terminator, blocky bits like the guns from the Alien movies, stuff like that (maybe you kids are too young to remember the 80s). I reckon it's freakin sweet and if I had $750 with nothing better to do with it I'd be on the phone to Thermaltake right now.

If I had a spare $1500, I'd buy you one for your birthday. Sucker.

radically fugly, radically different and radically stupid.
a normal case will be better looking, easier t work with and have better cooling.

People, they designed it with BMW. Your not the target audience, so you can stop complaining about it and go back to oogeling over rectangles. I love designs that go outside the box. The price? I don't complain about the price of a Ferrari I appreciate the car and move on.

The Right side has a constructivist feel and the left moves into a more streamline/postmodern style but where they meet has worked out ok.

I'd pay £750 for it because it is unique but only if I had better hardware.
