Level 10 GT Overview
The Level 10 GT look much like the original Level 10, it still has that very sectioned off look. It is quite a large case too with the dimensions of 584 x 282 x 590mm, which makes it a full tower case so you will be able to install ATX and E-ATX motherboards inside. The case only comes in one color, which is black.
If you look at the case from the front you can really see how it is different from other cases out there. Starting at the bottom of the case there are 5 hot-swappable drive bays, which are labeled and have buttons on the front to release the drives. Sitting in front of the drive bays is a large 200mm intake fan.
Moving up there are four 5.25-inch drive bays, each with a mesh cover. To the right of the drive bays you have a panel that has your power and reset buttons, hard drive LED, 4 USB 2.0 ports and audio connections.
Looking towards the top of the case there is another mesh section above the 5.25-inch bays. This provides some extra cooling, allowing your drives to “breathe” and it looks cool. On the top of the case there is a single eSATA connection, 2 USB 3.0 ports, buttons to turn the fans on low or high speed and a button to change the colors of the fan’s LEDs, which we will see a little later in the review. The rest of the top of the case is a large mesh section that has a 200mm fan behind it. You can also see the large handle, which not only is convenient, but looks awesome.
You can really see how Thermaltake has made the case have a compartmentalized design by looking at the case from the side. The part that stands out the most are the 5 hot-swappable bays towards the bottom of the case. There is another mesh section above the bays, which helps the system “breathe”. There is a small window towards the top of the case, what is a Thermaltake case without some type of window right? You will notice a lock on the side panel, this locks the side door.
On the side panel there is another large 200mm fan and a lever which allows you to direct which way the air is directed in to the case. The side panel fan has an easy to remove fan filter on it as well.
Moving around back you can see how exactly the case is designed. The power supply is set to be at the bottom of the case. Towards the top you have a 140mm exhaust fan and 3 water-cooling holes.
The opposite side of the case has a large “T” on it and the Level 10 GT logo towards the bottom right. The case does have 4 feet that case be pushed out if needed. Also on the bottom of the case is another large mesh fan filter.
