    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.

    It's unigue, I'll give them that. At least they are still trying new things.

    It's not for me, it isn't my style but I wouldn't call it ugly...

    Personally, I'll take this over the Level 10 anyday...Save myself $725 too.

    in my opinion this case is ridiculous the price does not justify it. it's just an aluminum mold over the components the temperatures are probably average when compared to the open air of a standard chassis maybe even worst because I don't see much ventilation for any of the compartments and aluminum cases offer no thermal benefits, there is a reason why hard drives are placed in front of a intake fan this case also looks like it will run into clearance issues eventually. even if this case wasn't a collectors edition it would be doomed popular for a whole five minutes.

    you can't even do that there is no window. I don't even know anybody that owns the Lian Li TYR PCX-2000/ABS Canyon 695 and it's considered the best real world application case you can buy.

    $750?

    Get the hell out of here.

    You must be rich with no brains to pay that kind of cash for that.

    Sounds like someone buying... nevermind not going to go into it.

    Wow Thermaltake fails again :nutkick:

    You have got to be kidding $750.00 could buy you two TJ-07s or other really high end cases that actually give you some space to work with, not to mention actually look good.

    meh i like it, very industrial, and looks very well built. i'm willing to bet the metal quality and work alone in the mainboard section is more complicated than the fanciest lian li overpriced box. it's also most likely properly over engineered in order to have that shape and design and keep from flopping over. can't say i'd pay 750 for it, but i can't say i'd drop 2 million on a bugatti veyron either.. if i had it to spend that is, but i enjoy the engineering in both.

    My dream have been shattered and step on. Well, look like PSP Go still sound more resonable or perhaps a new DX11 graphic card. And It's not even water cooled so WTF man! Maybe if you're lucky, one will show up on craigslist.
