First there was the Armor chassis. Then Thermaltake announced the Armor+ at CES 2007. A year later they demoed the Armor+ MX at CES 2008, a mid-tower version of it's highly successful big brother. Today Thermaltake is officially announcing the availability of the Armor+ MX that sports many of the advanced features of the full-tower version. The smaller version retains the water-cooling capabilities with top door access to a reservoir along with tool-less installation of optical and hard drives. Even at its reduced size, the MX still offers four removable 3.5" HDD carriers along with five 5.25" external bays. The hard drives benefit from a front 120mm intake fan and the huge 230mm side fan works to keep your other electronics cool. Exhaust air is handled by a second 120mm fan in the rear. An optional liquid cooling module can be installed in two of the the 5.25" bays. Throw in the integrated cable management system and you have the makings of one cool case. You can expect the Armor+ MX to become available the first week of May 2008 at a suggested retail price of $139US.
