    This Thermaltake Armour case is so bad, that even putting one graphics card in takes at least 1/2 an hour.

    When I get around to it, I'm going to remove totally remove they're useless screwless system and go back to screws.

    This is a huge case which wastes a lot of room. The hd system is ugly and the metal amplifies the noise of the hd.

    Coolermaster has a much nicer hd system.

    It looks worst than the $15 "099" cases found in China :shadedshu
    Edit: Actually GTR cases are more solid than that.

    I mean I do own a low budget Thermaltake case, too (my first case lol), but mine looks like a 700$ Lian Li case compared to that thing.

    Well Lian Li's $900 case are bullet proof :laugh:
    This really looks like some OEM crap that Thermaltake just slaps their brand on it. :pimp:

    My Medion OEM case was constructed better... and even that allowed a full ATX board to be installed WITH the back fan being present.

    I honestly have to say that this thing looks like something you pick up from a Martian JunkYard. :laugh:
    I believes I have seen enough junk from mainland China...
    Now I see this thing with Thermaltakes's name on it. :ohwell:

    DarkSaber, I guess you need to give a "Worst Case of the Year" award to this case.
    Oh jees 40 euros? :respect:

    so will it keep my system cooled,suggesting I use a Noctua P-9 will my cpu be stable,will the incase exhaust of hd 5850 turn the darn thing in a Silico Hell,but how about installing coolers how will they modify the air flow and thus the cooling?
    How efficient is the air circulation??

    I'v noticed something about most of the case reviews here on TPU, you guys never seem to even try to cable manage anything?

    It has been asked before; its due to the fact that cable management is time consuming. Would add a couple of hours to the already long taking business of reviewing. If I'd be constantly building new systems and then take them apart again, I'd also won't do any cable management.

    This is just another el cheapo case.
    If you want a good case for cheap, CoolerMaster offer some good choices.

    So this is the effect of the recession - piss pot steel sheets and a removal of "features" like fans. I have no problems with cheap cases (hah - I've spent my money at Maplin and icute before!) but it is still possible to get it right... maybe we should start a search for the best cheap case...

    The iCute cases that I have my hands on actually feels like it has some substance.
    This Thermaltake is just junk.

    surely a case manufacturer like TT makes it's money of OEM work, not consumer - in which case this should be aimed at that market...

    Mind you, even Packard Bell got nice cases...

    Hahahaha

    I liked how darksaber used cheap components when fitting components into the case. Too afraid to loose any of his high end stuff. I would've probably done the same:laugh::toast:
