Armor A90 Overview
When you first take a look at the Armor A90 it really is an eye-catching case. The version we received is all black and that is the only version currently available. No word yet on if there is going to be a silver version that we’ve seen with previous Armor cases. The case sort of has a transformer-like look to it. On the front of the case there are ventilation holes for the intake fan.
On the far right side of the case you have your front panel connections. They include 2 USB and audio connections. Also on the right side you have a power LED, HDD activity LED and reset button. The power button is quite large is designed into the case as a triangle. There is a small door on the front of the case that when opened reveals 3 5.25-inch drive bays and a single 3.5-inch bay.
The cool transformer-like design isn’t limited to just the front of the case, as we look up it is continued. This mesh design really works well and we have seen it on many cases lately. Towards the back of the case there are more ventilation holes for the top exhaust fan. Also on the top of the case you will find 2 more USB ports and a single eSATA port.
Looking at the side of the case it also has the cool styling on it. There is a small triangular window, which gives you a small look into your case. Also there is a spot for an optional 120mm fan, which is not included. Usually the right side panels on most cases are plain, but Thermaltake decided to put some of the cool styling on this panel as well.
Moving around to the back of the case you can see it has a pretty typical layout. There is another 120mm exhaust fan and some ventilation holes where your video cards will be. Also there are 4 water-cooling tube punch-outs on the back of the case, 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom. You will also notice that the power supply is positioned at the bottom of the case, something that has becoming standard on most cases these days.
