Once again Thermaltake comes out with a new case that is quality and lives up to expectations. This case might not have all the features of other higher end cases that we have seen from Thermaltake, but you have to remember this case comes in at under $100. At that price you really are getting a great deal here.
The case has a very unique look to it, something that people will notice at LAN parties. Also you get 3 included fans, 2 of which are LED fans so they will light the case up. This case has all the new features we expect to see on new cases; you have room for a 2.5-inch hard drive, eSATA connection, and the CPU cutout. Besides those features you have room for 3 optical devices and 6 hard drives so this case isn’t lacking any space either.
While cable management wasn’t that hard in this case it would have been nice to have some cable routing channels to make cable routing easier and to be able to hide cables easier.
This case fits into the same category as the Zalman Z7 Plus and the Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced. Both of those cases are around the same price and have some of the same features. I really would have to say it’s a tie between the Cooler Master CM 690 II and the Thermaltake Armor A90, both have some of the same features and some different so it all depends on which case and features you like better.
No doubt this is another great case from Thermaltake, especially at its price tag! Overall ThinkComputers gives the Thermaltake Armor A90 a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
