    With the success of the previous Armor+ full tower, Thermaltake has created the middle tower version of Armor+, the Armor+ MX. The aluminum Armor+ MX is now compact, lightweight, cool, quiet, user-friendly, yet still stylish – an ideal concept for the modern users. Thermaltake has included tool-free and cable management features into Armor+ MX, two 120mm fans (1300 rpm, 17DBa) one front and one rear, plus an enormous 230mm side intake fan rotating at 700 rpm (15DBa). The case can accomodate up to 5x 5.25" devices and has 4x 3.5" drive bays for hard drive installation. Armor+ MX can be purchased in stealthy black or elegant silver color. Please take a look at Thermaltake's special flash site here for detailed specs.

    full tower for me to. I like the cosmos S. I feel Cooler master or Tt should launch a full tower case with integrated water cooling parts (radiator, pump and tank)

    I have a love/hate relationship with my side 240mm fan on my case. It looks really cool but I honestly think 2x120mm intake or "core" fans would cool everything much more efficiently.

    i'd rather 240 vs a 120 just cause 240 can push much more air in 1 rotation then a smaller identical fan. therefore it can push the identical cfm of a 120 mm with a fraction of the rpm= so much better cfm:dba ratio.

    I want the gundam.


    Intergrated LCS would be nice. It would be nicer if thermaltake decided to make a doubled up version of their LCS for this case as one 120mm rad is OBVIOUSLY limited regardless of what cooling block you use...

    Yea but the giant fan is on the SIDE pushing random air everywhere. Intake fans are the way to go. Better flow of air.

    Airflow is irrelevant when you got something blowing onto all of your components at a high CFM... everything is getting cooled. Don't go that airflow is better without that fan because its clear what such a large side fan can do.

    It doesnt work well without the normal airflow setup, I think.

    I completely agree. The 240mm fan would best be suited for the top of the case to exhaust the warm air.

    im a positive pressure guy.. more fans on intake then exhaust, as the positive pressure will automatically push air out of the case, and i have an 80mm at the top blowing out hot air, and my system runs good like this, a 240 on the sidepanel is awesome because it cools much of your system and gets a lot of air on it and it'd be best as an intake then an outtake.
