Detailed Exterior Features
Since I am writing this review in the context of comparing the Armor-EVO to the Thor v2, I thought it would be helpful to see what we're up against. From this angle, you can tell the width of the two chassis are about the same, along with the depth.
With a different angle, we see the Armor-EVO actually besting the Thor in at least one dimension. While a little longer, it certainly isn't as tall - which might make the difference between placing this under a desk or beside it.
Here we see another view of the twin 120mm fans up top. Each of these additional fans (with the exception of the rear 120mm) has a molex connector that can easily be daisy-chained, or 3 pin fan adapter. Not every motherboard has six fan headers, so this is a simple and effective solution.
Finally, a view of the 230mm fan itself. You can also see in this picture the system of tabs along the edges used to attach the side panel - otherwise, not much to see here. The side panel provides for the option to subsitute the 230mm fan for four 120mm fans if desired.
An interesting note about the side fan: it isn't the same design as the one used in the Thor v2. The blades on this fan are more "sickle-shaped" than the blades on the Thor 230mm fans. It will be interesting to see if this changes the cooling performance...
