Level 10 – GT

The Level 10 – GT is as impressive as its progenitor. Like the original, it's something completely different with the segmented architecture and headset holder.

As you can see from the specs, there are plenty of cooling options and it fully supports a high end water cooling build. It really is an impressive case. Personally I am a fan of the red and black styling, but the fact that it also has built in USB 3.0 support and can support a variety of ATX board sizes helps as well.

On the top of the case you can see the USB 3.0 ports, a few USB 2.0 ports, LED controls and audio jacks. This is in conjunction with the headset holder I mentioned earlier.

Taking a look at the back side of the case, we see that there is a large mainboard cutout to support aftermarket CPU coolers. It seems large enough to support both Intel and AMD backplates. There are also grommeted holes all over the motherboard tray to support cable routing to clean up the look and improve airflow. Plenty of room is available in the back to stash cables, even behind the board, which is a nice feature. Though you will also see on the rear of the case there are three holes to support a water-cooling rig or cable pass-throughs if needed.

It was great of Thermaltake to walk us through their entire product line on display at CES 2011, though I still have to say the Level 10 – GT stole the show for me. Not only did I like the case, but the price point of around $250 is far more attractive than the $800 price point of the original Level 10.

Thanks to Thermaltake for their time and hospitality.
