    Not a bad looking case from TT except for the weird aluminum wings on the front.

    I like it !
    Same "wings" as on my orginal Armor case which protect the front of the case in the event you bump into it with something, and the top facing head for easy access if you have it on the floor next to you.
    They should have put the "Armor" logo vertically on the wings like they used to do.

    Yeah I'm still rocking my old TT Kandalf L.C.S case. "Similar" style to the Armor. I guess the wings are on hinges then?

    Been waiting to see this case since January...glad its finally out!

    Kreij you hit it on the head, they meant for this chassis not to lose what made the Armor name from long ago, hence the wings.

    Not hinges, but pins on the top and bottom so they do open and close.

    Unfortunately for TT, they built the orginal Armor so well I don't think I will ever need another case.
    My TT TP Modular 750W PSU has taken everything I've thrown at it too over the years, and is still running strong too.
    INSTG8R says thanks.

    Same! Running my "Ancient" Kandalf, Still using the Watercooling from it(not the best these days)with my TT Toughpower 1200W I bought way back when I thought I was gonna run 2900XT's in Crossfire :roll:
    Mine has one of the "wings" that is part of my door. But the layout of yours and mine are the same guts wise.

    TBH it looks like a very familiar/regurgitated TT design with a large fan on the side/top gave birth to something on the top panel and they called it a "new" case! :rolleyes:

    For some reason their cases and PSUs seem to be built quite decently, shame it can't be said for the rest of their products :eek:

    Edit: Looking at that blue thing at the top and my cardboard Bitfenix box they do look quite similar...

    What classifies this as gaming? I have the chaser mk1 and love it. only diff between mine and this one is the top and front. Side panel is the same. Saying its a gaming chassis doesn't really mean its just for gamer's. Its just a case. Those wing things in the front is from their older cases like the armor series. I'm not a fan of having to constantly move them if your using your cd drive often. Gets annoying. Not a fan of the bulky top on this one. other then those things it still a decent looking case though.
