Inside the BMW-designed Thermaltake Case

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

We get to see what's under the hood.

We first got an eyes-on the BMW-designed Thermaltake PC case during CeBit and we liked the way it looked. Instead of just having one giant box for all the computer components to breathe the same air, the Level 10 separates everything inside a case into four parts -- the PSU, optical drives, hard disk drives and one for the CPU and expansion cards. Still, we didn’t know exactly how things worked on the inside or how it would circulate air for cooling.

Today we got an opportunity to go hands-on with it. Each compartment, including each drive bay, has its own cooling with a fan on the bottom and a fan on top. As expected, it’s not the most easy-access or mod-friendly case, but it still looks pretty cool.

    It's going to be one of those you must see in the flesh. The promo image being all red and glossy black looks outstanding, but all the actual photos make it look flat, matte and very plastic.

    If it's the former then I'm very very tempted (although I doubt any half-decent aftermarket coolers will fit so the chances of ramping my 920 to 3.6GHz is slim).
