    I still dont get it why thermaltake make USB3 port using that cable going all the way to the back of the case ... instead of using the port in the motherboard. BTW great review ... thanks :)

    Quite a lot of the early motherboards didn't have USB3 headers "inside", hence the need to do some fancy cabling.

    All that is really needed is a converter from the onboard connector to a USB plug. I think these exist already, and it might be the time to give Thermaltake a call and to just tell them to include one. That way you can connect it in both forms.

    Because the black version is "older" than the white version. This black one was announced around January and was released in February. The white version first appeared in June and was launched in July.

    Darksaber how does weight go against it ?.. Maybe if they built it out of Aluminum but with all those edges i am sure the price would go up.

    I still dislike the case although over time it's getting easier on the eyes.


    Nice review anyways.

    Wow, did not know that. Thanks :toast:

    It's nearly 30lbs for just the case. Add another few pounds for psu and other items and it quickly becomes quite heavy.

    I don't think it's quite butt ugly, there are plenty of gross cases out there. May want to look up the beige decade that haunts computer case's memories.
    I don't have a complaint on the build quality, actually I find it really well built. The design is solid and the production is impressive. The plastic front doesn't diminish the the quality at all.
    edit, and your link is to a sales site where the reviews are from anyone who can type. I dont take those types of 'reviews' seriously enough to influence my purchasing. User reviews are usually negatively biased because a pissed off person gripes more than a pleased person commends.

    yep, I agree.
    The case seems so have achieved quite good temperatures under load testing, though.
    I'd still prefer a FT02 anytime ;)

    I have moved my HAF-X a time or two and it is going on 50-60 pounds with a starting weight of about 32 so no I would not want to move a Level 10 GT even if it weights slightly less lol

    Thanks for the great review!

    Hard to believe that thing only weighs 28 lbs.

    This case is great but it weighs a lot, sort of remind me of my SPEDO advance case my brother cringes when I ask him to help me picked it up to bring it down the stairs to clean it. The Chaser MK-1 has everything the Level 10 gt has so to speak and can be had for a whole lot less...the fan controller with led, the hot swap drives the room and is lightweight, it can also mount a 240 rad and don't forget the drive docking station up top.
    Staying on this case though, the list price may be $250 but I do recall I have seen this case at microcenter/newegg for at least $199.

    Quick update, the new newer models of the level 10 GT are shipping with USB 3.0 headers. Nice improvement Tt.

    Great review again, thanks! But i won't pay for this... although the functions are pretty complete, but the design is not my type! Also... the price is super... high!
