Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition
Manufacturer: Thermaltake Technology
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Thermaltake.
In 2010, Thermaltake won the Red Dot Design Award for Product Design for their collaborative work with BMW DesignworksUSA. That product was called the Thermaltake Level 10 case. The Level 10 was an aesthetic innovation that broke many of the traditional "rules" of the computer chassis industry. The problem? It's original cost was $850. That's a little on the expensive side. In 2011, Thermaltake was at it again, reusing the general design of the Level 10 in order to create another case that won the Red Dot Design Award for Product Design, the Thermaltake Level 10 GT. By cutting the cost of such an innovative style of case by more than half, the Level 10 GT began to appeal to a much wider audience. Now Thermaltake has brought us another look in the Level 10 lineup. In this article, Benchmark Reviews brings you an in-depth look at the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition Case.
Computing enthusiasts are the most likely to be willing to spend a lot of money on a computer case because they realize the potential value in superior build quality, functionality, cable management, and cooling. That being said, any gamer knows the mantra looks>stats. While said somewhat jokingly, the fact of the matter is, we all want that box under (or on top of) our desk to be easy on the eyes. Thermaltake has attempted to enclose all of the important aspects that we look for in a case into the Level 10 GT Snow Edition. The kept the same, visually appealing design as the original Level 10 case, but made some modifications in order to make it less expensive.
Some of the changes that Thermaltake made to the Level 10 GT Snow Edition actually moved the design of the case closer to that of a traditional enclosure. The component housing, for example, was completely separated in the original Level 10 case, essentially isolating the components. The original Thermaltake Level 10 case certainly caught a lot of people's attention. The Level 10 GT, while still appealing, was, in my opinion, less so than its predecessor. The Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition case brings back a lot of that aesthetic appeal, simply by changing the color scheme. The contrasting white on black really catches the attention. Add that to the LED lighting system that allows you to choose the color you want to go along with it, and you have a very good looking case.
The Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition is a huge case, to be sure. The question is, does it stand up to the level intended? Thermaltake specifies that the Level 10 GT Snow Edition is made for high performance gaming and to supply superior levels of airflow to components. Let's take a look at all the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition has to offer.
