Armor Revo Gene Overview
For a full overview of this case check out our video below.
The Armor Revo is a full tower case with dimensions of 510 x 252.0 x 550mm. Again this is the Snow Edition and as you can see that means it is the white version. At first look the Armor Revo looks much like the Armor+ MX, but a little more sized down.
Taking a look at the front of the case you have the signature Armor front mini doors or or pieces or armor. They are made of silver brushed aluminum and look pretty cool. The doors can be pushed back a little bit to make it easier for you to install your optical drives.
On the front of the case there are four 5.25-inch drive bays. Below that you have a large ventilated section. Behind that there is a 200mm intake fan.
On the top of the case are all of your front panel connections and controls. Starting with connections there are headphone and microphone jacks, eSATA, two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. On the left side are your fan controls they include settings for high and low and a button to turn the fan LED’s off and on. On the right side are your power and reset buttons along with a hard drive activity LED. At the center you will find a hard drive dock. This dock supports both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives.
On the top of the case there are two ventilated sections where you can install fans. The one closest to the front of the case can hold a 140/120mm fan. The one towards the back of the case can hold a 200/140/120mm fan. Thermaltake has installed a 200mm fan in the back placement.
Taking a look at the side panel we do not have the huge side panel window that I loved on the original Armor case, but the window on this case is quite sufficient. Below the window is the third 200mm fan. Also on the side of the case is holder for your headset.
On the back of the case there are three watercooling holes, which do have the rubber inserts installed. Below those is a 140mm exhaust fan, you can install a 120mm fan there if you like. Moving down there is more ventilation and your placement for the power supply at the bottom. There is a pull-out fan filter on the bottom of the case.
