The Armor A60 is part of two new cases in the Thermaltake Armor series; the other is the Armor A90. Some of the main features of the Armor A60 are the USB 3.0 front easy-access interface as well as the world’s first SideClick EasySwap design. These features aren’t found in the more expensive A90. The A60 is designed with armor in mind. The case itself looks like an armored tank on all sides.
The front of the case follows the armored design with different angles and raised platforms to give the case some style. The front panel is almost entirely composed of a black wire mesh except for the area surrounding the 5.25” drive bays.
On the right side of the 5.25” drive bays near the bottom are the easy-access ports. Your typical ports include 1 USB 2.0, audio/mic inputs, reset/power buttons, and activity LED’s. Thermaltake has also included a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port and eSATA port. You can run the USB 3.0 cable through your case and attach it to your USB 3.0 slot on your motherboard I/O. At first glimpse the power button looks broken or looks like it’s falling off, but rest assured it’s not.
The top of the case follows the armored design, but this side seems to be a little more symmetrical than other sides. The top 200mm blue LED exhaust fan is visible through the built-in fan grill. The 200mm fan can also be replaced by a 120mm fan. Additionally you can add another 120mm fan on top; it looks like you can install another 200mm fan with the fan grill, but the screw holes only fit a 120mm fan. If you look closely you’ll see the front part of the fan grill is raised up.
The side panel resembles an armored vehicle the best with its small clear window. You can also install a 120mm fan on the side panel; it’s not included. One of the most notable features of this case is also found on the side panel. Towards the middle right of the panel is a slot with the Thermaltake name/logo embedded into it. This slot is used for the SideClick EasySwap also known by many as: hot swap.
The rear of the case is similar to that of most cases. It has a black paint job, just like the entirety of the case. On the back panel you have your bottom mounted power supply slot, 7 expansion slots with grated covers, 120mm rear fan grill, motherboard I/O slot and watercooling holes. The USB 3.0 cable is easily seen hanging out of the watercooling holes and is attached to the rear Security Lock.
Another two watercooling holes can be punched out next to the bottom mounted PSU slot. Of course, both side panels have two thumb screws each to secure them to the case.
