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.

another one on display at Computex is the Thermaltake Element V which also has a ridiculous feature...
now that's just hilarious! :roll:

you know TBH if the first case was priced around $200-$300 i wouldn't classify it as fugly because it is "contempary" in style (still not my style) but the suggested MSRP denote's it as a fugly case.

just my $0.02

Haha that Thermaltake Element V is really stupid. What the hell I could mount a flag and water bottle to my case if I want :laugh:. They actually think people will buy sports wear that says Thermaltake on it.
I did one build for a friend with a Thermaltake case, biggest piece of crap ever and I will never touch any of their products again.

Whoever they hired to do the cable management on that case needs sacking and immediately gunning down - look at the top of the motherboard on picture #4! :shadedshu

According to the designers, Level 10 has an "aesthetical answer to the physical necessity for best possible cooling". That's highlighted by the vertical heatsink you see running up the chassis' side.
the NZXT Khaos has the same thing it has 4 aluminum machine milled blocks in a heatsink design that weigh a total of 6 lbs they are completely removable and serve no purpose other than decoration. on the Thermaltake Level 10 the aluminum block that is in a heatsink design runs vertical up the hard drive enclosures to the 5.25" enclosure, if it even transfers heat at all and you have multiple hard drives it will transfer the heat from one hard drive to the next, aluminum needs air to dissipate heat otherwise it will just get hot and have the opposite effect if all it needed was your everyday run-of-the-mill air in your room we probably wouldn't feel the need to slap a Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000 on to a Thermalright Ultra 120 now would we?

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.
yes we are not the target audience. we know that. retards are.

are u serious

That price is ridiculous. Gimmie a board, some L brackets and rails. I'll make one for alot less then that. It looks pretty cool but not practical. Who ever did the cable management sucks at that lol. if it was round 200 i may think bout it. but not no 750.
