    Thermaltake, leading PC chassis, cooler, and PSU brand manufacturer, is celebrating their 10th anniversary in the PC DIY industry and will therefore present a very special highlight at this year’s Computex 2009 show in Taipei, Taiwan, June 2 ~ 6.

    Herewith we would like to cordially invite you to this exclusive ceremony with the Director of the European Studio of BMW Group DesignworksUSA, Laurenz Schaffer the AMD Vice President of Platform Business Development Levi Murray and the CEO of Thermaltake Kenny Lin. Don’t miss your chance to meet three of the most innovative technology leaders in their fields and directly ask them and tell what you think matters.

    Thermaltake exclusively work together with the renowned design consultancy BMW Group DesignworksUSA and the prime manufacturer of processors and graphics solutions Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) on a chassis project called Level 10. Level 10, the Extreme Gaming Station chassis, reflects the vibrant and pioneering vision of DesignworksUSA which results from their work in the automotive area as well as for diverse industries from lifestyle to aviation, yachting or IT. Level 10 entirely breaks with traditional case architecture conventions and explores a daring and futuristic concept in which most components are compartmentalized, making the case an open and modular structure, allowing for most convenient access to and exchangeability of the most important components. AMD’s highly overclockable CPUs and powerful graphics solutions bring the “Level 10” Extreme Gaming Station to life and in full gear for the best gaming experience.

    The Director of the European Studio of BMW DesignworksUSA, Laurenz Schaffer, points out:

    “With the Level 10 design we have created an exceptionally new and exciting design icon for the gaming market while at the same time focusing on ease of use. The dramatic architectural aesthetics is inspired by the visual motives of virtual worlds. A unique modular structure emphasizes the additive components. New functions and features are introduced to increase usability and provide maximum individual configurability"

    AMD, manufacturer of first class CPUs and graphics chips, is an innovative technology company dedicated to collaborating with customers and partners to ignite the next generation of computing and graphics solutions at work, home, and gaming. The AMD Vice President of Platform Business Development, Levi Murray notes:

    “Thermaltake attempts to search for product distinction and recognized that great design will lead the way. With many new and innovative features, Level 10 provides a breakthrough design that is an ideal environment for AMD’s high-performance CPU and GPU solutions.”

    With many new features, utmost usage convenience and optimized cooling efficiency wrapped in an almost unreal aesthetical chassis design the Level 10 Extreme Gaming Station is bound to soon become a true collectors’ item among computer enthusiasts.

    how the hell would you get the mobo in there? It looks cool... but with how close all that metal is to the components, I worry how hot everything will get.

    It sure looks nice though

    seems to me you have plenty space, they even let the part for the CPU cooler come out even further, and with the driver bays on the front I recon there is more then enough space.

    No windows? So every Level 10 case will look the same, no matter whats inside. A bit disappointing... The idea is nice tho.

    So the case that all 100000 pc builders buy looks "Different", how?

    Thats what the Dremel is for.. ;)

    I actually like the case. Looks like it could have potential for modding, if it's made right.. Why buy a case with pre-made windows? Or pre-made plumbing?

    What happened to the "Modding"? Buying a case thats laid out, and just putting the Lego pieces together isn't modding in the slightest. Its building a slightly less mainstream, but still mainstream desktop.

    $5 Beige cases don't support watercooling either.

    But it sure as hell fits... :D

    the case looks injection molded. it's probably going to be expensive since it's a collectors case at least it will only be around for 5 minutes...

    Well I mean it in terms of internals. I'm a person who is all into viewable internals. So even 100 cases with a window will look different because of whats inside. With the Level 10, its all the same. Except when someone has an open door because of a large cooler:laugh:

    And I don't call myself a modder... I lack the skills, or I haven't aquired them yet. However there is a 5$ beige case standing around I could practise on...:rockout:
