Thermaltake this past year has been pretty active in the world of computer peripherals, and this coming year is going to be no different. Thermaltake is preparing to launch an expansive line of new computer peripherals and components across the whole board of their product offerings. We are here to show you what they've got to offer.
The view from the Palazzo Suite
We were invited by none other than Thermaltake's Ramsom Koay and Shannon Robb, these two stately gentlemen invited the BSN* team to the Thermaltake suite to check out the awesome new products coming up in 2012 and beyond.
We started off our visit to the Thermaltake suite by checking out their latest case offerings. Thermaltake's suite offered some of their newest case offerings as well as some that we were already familiar with, but with a twist.
The first case we saw was the all familiar Level 10 GT Snow Edition which is a regular Level 10 GT but in white with black accents. We are currently in the process of reviewing this case and should be bringing it to you in the coming weeks. The take on this case, though, is the fact that Thermaltake has a gaming bundle that bundles their white MEKA G1 keyboard (snow edition) with their white Tt eSports gaming headset as well as the Level 10 GT Snow Edition.
Sitting right next to this Level 10 GT was a very familiar looking brother to the Level 10 GT, except with an aesthetic twist. This case was actually a modded version of the Level 10 GT done by Dan McGrath dubbed the 'Aztec' mod (actually labeled AzTtec on the case to go along with Tt logo). This case is quite literally the most insanely detailed case mod we have ever seen since the Battlestar Galactica Mod
we saw by Brian Carter.
If you take a look at the case, you can absolutely see the insane attention to detail that this gentleman has. In addition to basically building an entire mock-up Mayan Calendar on one side of the case and completely decking out the other side of the case, Dan McGrath decided to do the same treatment on both the keyboard and mouse with the exact same stunning attention to detail. Our favorite part, though, was definitely under the headset rest on the case where a Mayan Warrior is sitting and playing on his gaming controller (perhaps a keyboard may have been more appropriate?) and listening on his Thermaltake Tt eSports headphones.
Following the AzTtec build, we took a look at some of Thermaltake's newest cases. One of these cases is the littler brother to the Level 10 GT, known as the Level 10 GTS. The first of the line being the original Level 10, followed by the GT and the now GTS. The GTS is a midtower case which borrows most of its design cues from its bigger (and more expensive) brothers. This midtower is also accompanied by the midtower case Commander MS II which fits more into Thermaltake's more budget gamer crowd with much less subdued asthetics. The Level 10 GTS will be available in both white or black.
The next case is the Armor Revo, which is a re-design of one of Thermaltake's oldest full tower cases and personally one of my favorite and most solid cases of all time. The original Armor case was quite literally built tough enough that it felt like it could withstand direct gunfire. We're not sure how accurate that is, but we hope that the same level of quality is applied to the Armor Revo.
The one cool feature of the Armor Revo that makes it different from its predecessors the Armor and Armor+ is the fact that this case supports both USB 3.0 as well as has an external hard drive dock for hotswapping hard drives or SSDs. This case also supports water cooling with support for up to a 2x120mm radiator or the already installed 200x200mm fan with support for an optional 140/120mm fan on the top as well. This case has a veritable plethora of fans with 4 large fans included and 2 more spots for optional fans.
