Another poor airflow case
Not perse, I mean not brilliant, but not poor maybe.
It looks like that NZXT case, which also as a decently wide vent area on the side and top of the case.
I think gamers nexus once reviewed that design where they said that sometimes, brute forcing it, works.

Biggest problem this case has is that its Thermaltake, and after Caselabs they can just F themselves.

Looks like another Phanteks clone ... You can't judge air flow by pictures ... That claim was made on the Evolv and 600S (uses Evolv chassis) ... and soundly debunked in testing.

After the clamor of poor air flow arose, Hardware Canucks tested this assumption.

Default Condition - 271 ft/min w/ solid front cover
Panel Angled - 281 ft/min
Panel Removed - 281 ft/min
Mesh removed- 300 ft/min
Dust filter removed - 313 fpm

So what can we conclude:

1. Removing the mesh such as used on those allegedly 'all open' cases ... had the biggest impact on air flow -19 fpm
2. Removing the dust filters had the second biggest impact
3. Taking the air flow killing solid front cover off had the least impact 10 fpm ... less than 1%

Panel Angled - 281 ft/min
