The A700 TG features aluminium panels created by high precision CNC digital cutting to ensure chassis security, while at the same time providing a futuristic gaming aesthetic. The aluminium anodizing process enables the panels to be both water and corrosive resistant as well. The aluminium casing utilizes CNC milling technology and was sandblasted to help shape the elegant and sleek curves.

hummm.... bugga-boo hinges them is, uh huh, yeppers, fo' shur :)

A solid but not distinctly different case, but at least it (finally) has USB-C on the front I/O....

If this is even remotely as well made as their other premium cases it's probably worth it, but I'm not sure many folks will be too thrilled about that price though o_O

I'm not saying this a huge case, but I'd like someone to review it using an mITX build with integrated graphics and M.2 storage.

And exactly what purpose would that serve ?

Please explain why someone who is building an mitx rig would want or need a case big enough to hold an eatx mobo, unless of course they just enjoy wasting space and money....

Wow, a stamped steel case with fancy glass doors/side panels and aluminum cladding costs 400 bucks? The margin on that must be something. It does look nice but not at that price imo.

340 is way too much in the current case market. Around 200 would be a better fit for this. Wondering if anyone will pay that much for it rly.

That makes about as much sense as having a four car garage when you only drive a bicycle....

Seriously if these big case companies always copy from others, why not copy good micro-ITX cases. I'd really like a slim ITX case like Dr. Zaber Sentry or Skyreach 4 Mini that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Only mainstream manufacturer in that space is Silverstone but they're not available everywhere. Even then it's only one manufacturer.

This is aluminum... Lian Li!



You can't imagine experience on touch. Cases are so light, smooth, perfect...
Every computer worth 2000$ deserve aluminum case, because steel is inferior material for PC case.

Best Classic Full Tower

Lian Li PC-O12 Newegg,
Discount from 350$ to 150$, this is at the moment best option for high end PC case. Price is unreal.

I own both a steel and aluminum case, I generally prefer the higher quality steel as it makes the case feel more premium and well constructed in my opinion.

I own both a steel and aluminum case, I generally prefer the higher quality steel as it makes the case feel more premium and well constructed in my opinion.
Steel used for PC cases is cheapest steel available on market used for toys, cheap parts for houses worth 10-20$.
That's not higher quality stainless steel. But anyway it's heavy. If planes are made from aluminum to keep strength and to be lighter then and PC case could be made.
It's much better on touch, but I talk about Lian Li, because their work is very precise. They have some specialized system of production cases different then other brands and you notice that in reality.
They use big aluminum sheets and probably have very experienced workers. And Taiwan is big difference from China.



This is best you can buy at the moment for high end hardware.
I will never pay any other cases then Lian Li. But every case need to be completely different approach.
Never similar PC case, I had conventional normal standard PC case, and now I have dual chamber with tempered glass, next will be something totally different.
90% of PC cases today you see traced of CM 690 in them.
Precise and quality of work between Lian Li worth 300$+ and this Thermaltake worh 330$ is two class above.

If you collect all scientists and ask them for best material for PC cases they will say Titanium or Aluminum.
Simply weight of quality and more expensive SS316L stainless steel inox is not worth because case need to be moved, cleaned, etc...
Most expensive kitchen pots and tool for cocking last years are from hard anodized aluminum, he have some characteristics better then stainless steel and some negative sides but depend of people.

It's a nice looking case, but are they oblivious? Phanteks just release the Enthoo Luxe 2 which is similar in almost all respects for half the price. If you put this AND the Luxe 2 at 189.99 I would struggle on which to choose, but 340 dollars? C'mon guys. Not a chance.
