I myself travel a good bit for LAN parties, with them ether being at a friend’s house or a larger LAN event like Pittco events right here in Pittsburgh. Traveling and carrying around a big case can sometimes be a pain. Then again there are not very many mATX cases that will suit the needs of gamers and fit their larger graphics cards and heatsinks. But Thermaltake was nice enough to send us over their Armor A30 case for us to take a look at. Let’s see if this case will suit my needs and the need of other gamers out there.
Thermaltake surprised everyone when they announced the Level 10 case. It was something that we had never seen before and was really a design marvel. While the case was truly amazing the price tag was not, not many people have $800 to drop on a case. Thermaltake knew this, but still loved the design of the Level 10 so they have released the Level 10 GT, which keeps some of the same styling of the original Level 10, but drops the price considerably. This case features 5 hot-swappable hard drive bays, USB 3.0 connectivity, three 200mm fans, and some cool lighting effects. Let’s check it out and see if Thermaltake has another winner.
External hard drive enclosures have been around for quite a long time, I can always remember having one around to use as a backup or storage drive. With USB 3.0 becoming pretty much standard on all new motherboards new enclosures like Thermaltake’s Max 5G take advantage of the super fast speeds on USB 3.0. This new enclosure from Thermaltake features a super fast USB 3.0 connection, dual 80mm active cooling LED fans and support for SATA I, II and 6GB/s drives up to 2TB. Let’s take a look…
City of Industry, California – February 9, 2011 – Thermaltake, the market’s most trusted brand in D.I.Y. computer cases and max-performance power supplies, announced today the immediate availability of the highly anticipated Level 10 GT super gaming full-tower computer case. The Level 10 GT case was introduced during 2011 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) held at Las Vegas, Nevada. Level 10 GT is the successor to the original Level 10, the design collaboration between Thermaltake and BMW Group DesignworksUSA.
The case’s announcement during 2010 CES attracted high-volume of media coverage and quickly trickled down to the PC enthusiasts and gaming communities with approvals of the Level 10 GT’s breakthrough in design and innovative features.
This year at CES Thermaltake did not have a whole lot of new products, but the new products they did have are really awesome. They showed us some new keyboards from their Tt eSports line, a new gaming mouse, a few new cases, new power supplies, and some storage products. We all know Thermaltake makes great products so let’s see what they have for us in 2011.
The Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS line of gaming products is new to the market. It includes a variety of products including mice, keyboards, headsets and mousepads. Today we have the opportunity to review our first Tt eSPORTS product, the Challenger Pro Keyboard. This keyboard features an adjustable red back light illumination, two onboard USB 2.0 ports, as well as a personal cooling fan. Read on further to see what else this keyboard has in store.
Thermaltake, leading DIY chassis brand, is launching their latest edition to the popular and award winning ARMOR series of PC cases. The entirely black ARMOR A30 sports the familiar “bulletproof” armor design concept with metal mesh elements lending the ARMOR series an extremely stylish and powerful appearance that attracts gamers and enthusiasts alike. The top and front blue LED-fans enhance the overall combat ambience. It’s small dimensions of 266 (H) x 291 (W) X 456 (D) cm make it an ideal solution for small form factor systems (Micro ATX and mini ITX), while still allowing for enough room to house the most powerful graphics cards available on the market today (e.g. AMD Radeon HD 5970 and NVIDIA GTX460). Demanding LAN party goers can now set up a truly powerful gaming machine that is still small enough to be portable and stylish at the same time.
Hard drive docking stations started to appear more frequently about 2 years ago. A hard drive dock is something every system builder and most computer users should have. So often people need to get information off a hard drive and what easier way to do that than with a hard drive dock. The hard drive dock really has not changed that much, but with the introduction of USB 3.0 you are now able to get even faster speeds from hard drive docks. Today we will be taking a look at the BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station from Thermaltake.
Have you ever been working at your computer or laptop and felt a little hot? Being hot and uncomfortable makes working hard and you are less productive. I’ve had this happen to me on numerous occasions. Thermaltake has just the thing for this problem; they call it the Mobile Fan 12. It is a 12cm fan that sits on your desk and is powered by USB; there is even a speed control knob. Let’s take a look and see if this product is worth the $19.99 price tag.
