Striking Looks: Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition

11 thumbs up
When it comes to the interior design and layout, the Level 10 GT, no matter which color you choose, is a lesson in design and build simplicity.  From its clean cable management features to ample and proper spacing between component areas, the Level 10 GT sets up easier than just about any full-sized case we've monkeyed with to date.  Incidentally, the Level 10 GT also supports Extended ATX motherboards, if you're a sucker for punishment in that regard.

 

The side panel door of the Level 10 GT is actually hinged and is easily removable just by lifting it off its hinge.  Thermaltake also designed a simple contact connector between the door and the main chassis, that connects the side intake fan to a power source, without the fuss or muss of a cable run.  Again, it's the little things like this that make all the difference.  The side intake fan also has a set of louvers behind it that can be positioned with a small lever on the exterior of the case.  With this, you can direct airflow from this fan, inside the case.

      
Rubber grommet-lined cable pass-throughs in various strategic areas inside the case and out the back panel, serve for both interior cable management and flow tubing for water cooling.  Again, setting up this case for impeccable, clean cable management and uninhibited airflow and cooling, couldn't be any easier.




Don't be distracted by the cool blue 200mm fan; look at that motherboard tray socket area cutout!

Even backside cable management behind the motherboard tray is easily accommodated by the back panel design.  It's a slide-off panel type but Thermaltake left plenty of room behind the motherboard tray, to stuff that 24-pin ATX power cable and anything else you want in there and out of site.  Also, take note of the motherboard socket area cutout in the motherboard tray.  This allows for a bit more air flow around the backside of the motherboard socket area.  Once again, we're impressed with the forethought that went into this design.

News:
original Level 10 case,.....its MSRP weighing in at $850 (they're selling for only $699 now)

Yeah, to people with more money than sense.

News:
the Level 10 GT dubbed the "Snow Edition" just might turn a few more heads too.

Yes, It's a very nice looking case. (I think so anyway) You know that old cliche',....~"where form meets function"~ this is that.

It's priced at $239.00 at MicroCenter, and I think that it's a fair price for something that is so well thought out. (and easy on the eye too)

It has enough advanced features within to please almost anyone who likes function.

Excellent job Dave! Loved your "short take" of this awesome case. A very striking and unique case that's sure to garner the attention it rightly deserves. Would love to have one of these, and feel the white version has more visual punch than the all black version.

Btw, for as many times as you said "Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition", you could work in NASCAR, or we could turn this video into a drinking game! lol

Keep up the great work!

This is indeed a very nice work of art :D, but still on the pricy side for me to pick up.

"Pricey but worth it" That may just be true :P

You guys should swap this in for the contest Wink lol

Oh Hell No!,.......the case that they're offering looks better to me, and the choice of colors is an outstanding way to tweak people's interest!

Dave, just leave the contest as it is,.....and just mail me this one without telling everyone else about it.  Smile

Great write up Dave! I have to be honest I like the all black version better which is weird because I love the white 600t. I really like the wireless side fan, makes everything look super clean. Same with the pre-wired hard drive cages. That is a great feature to have on a case if you are going for cable management.

On a side note did you guys see Cooler Master is claiming the new Storm Trooper is going to be "The Future of Full Towers", That is a pretty bold statement.

"Beautiful case, although I too prefer the black version. Nice review. But the White Storm Trooper title goes to the White NZXT Phantom , thats the first thing I thought of when I first saw it. "
