    I like it, mainly because it hasn't got any ugly perforations to spoil it. Just a nice clean looking window, and the rest of the case looks alright as well. :)

    A "gaming PC case" ? Really? What game do you play with your PC case, toss the PC case or drop the PC case or burn the PC case, or what game exactly?

    Can someone enlighten me what exactly a gaming chassis is? Or is just a way to get people to buy them by attaching the word gaming to it?

    actually it looks like marketing statement :D
    gaming chasis is like case with sharp design or aggressive accent and they equipped with good airflow and has room for your hardware (like full size vga card)
    its not like htpc that simple/minimalistic, some looks like dvd player and has limited room :toast:

    Not just a beige/black plain box, has a window, LED's, screwless drives, fan controller, or just looks funky so to set itself apart etc etc the problem is 10 years ago there was a distinct difference between a bog standard PC case and a "gaming case" though now even budget cases have implemented a lot of the features and designs found on "gaming cases" and thus it's a bit of an outdated word, though I don't rate TT and to me they have gone downhill gradually over the years, they're now like the late 20's something dude trying to be down with the kids when we all know they're just not :cool:

    Oh look, it's another CM 690II XD
    Would've been nice if it had 8 expansion slots, otherwise, looks okay.
    I don't know of any 'gaming' mid case that doesn't have provision for fans on the side.
    It's been quite a long time since Tt made a case with decent set of features.
    Personally rocking an Antec 300 with the side and top fan spots blocked off, and the front and rear populated with 900RPM Noctua P12, good enough to cool overclocked X6 and GTX480 SLI.

    I love to see them do the original TT Armor ( VA8000BWS ) but no plastic crap on it. It's the one thing that always bugged me about mine ( which i no longer use but then i don't use a case now so).

    The original had a 120mm and a 90mm + a 3 bay drive area too. Then just be a bit different than anyone else do what they did with the original and mount the PSU sideways and actually make it so it can get air out from the side.

    Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum ...

    I like their chassis especially the old ARMOR cases. Really like these new ones and love the Soprano that they redid and came out with.

    Not the best looking case IMO, but not the worst by any stretch either.

    Sometimes I can't stand press releases. What is an "e-sports appearance"? Electronic sports? Isn't that.. just.. laziness? And ignoring the grammatical errors, how is "best inner view for built system see through" a feature to boast about? It's a piece of acrylic attached to a metal door, not a piece of advanced Romulan technology.

    The Computer Case market is a crowded one. I don't really see anything in this case that hasn't been done a number of times before.

    I liked Thermaltake back in the Athlon XP days. I still have my Volcano 7+ and I'm even still using my Xaser II. The stuff they're doing these days though.. :shadedshu
