Closer Look: Interior
The side panel for the main compartment of the Level 10 GT Snow Edition case is actually a door. It is easily removable by simply lifting it off the hinges. This design is somewhat different from your traditional case. The door itself isn't revolutionary, we saw side by side doors on the Lanboy Air case, but it is different. Also, the drive bays don't open up to the outside at all.
The motherboard area inside the Level 10 GT Snow Edition is really spacious, as it needs to be to fit an E-ATX motherboard. Many of the standoffs for the motherboard, specifically a full ATX motherboard, are already pre-installed. That's nice, since I have a full ATX motherboard. If I didn't, however, I would have probably had to move some of them.
You can see, at the bottom of the inside of the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition, the area set aside for the optional 120mm fan. Fans are pretty inexpensive, so I would recommend putting one in here. While there is certainly a lot of air flow without it, it will definitely help if you have a video card or three that run pretty hot.
The back of the case shows us plenty of room for cable management. The back side panel is even beveled slightly to allow for an extra quarter-inch or so of space for those pesky cables. The back of the motherboard tray has a large opening for access to the CPU cooler mount. This one is big enough that it gives you access to both Intel and AMD aftermarket coolers. My biggest gripe about some cases is that this opening isn't quite big enough. That's not the case on the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition.
