The newest chassis that Thermaltake had this year is the Thermaltake Level 10 GT. This chassis is an upgraded version of the Level 10 the company had on display last year but with more features. There is a clear window on the front of the chassis to allow you to look through and see the components installed inside. Next to that, there is a headset holder for you to easily grab your headphones and get going when you want to jump into a game and start fragging some of your friends. The rear I/O panel features three holes with rubber gromets around them for you to easily run watercooling tubing through and you receive a total of eight expansion slots. On the front of the chassis, you'll see that there is a removable dust filter over the large 200mm fan installed on the side. The side panel swings open, which reveals the entire inside of the chassis, and it gives you the chance to hide your wires quite well. All five of the HDD bays have Thermaltake's EasySwap PitStop 5 technology.
On the top of the Level 10 GT, you are going to find a few buttons. The Fan LED button controls the LED lights on all the stock fans installed in the system, by either turning the lights on or off. There are two buttons above this one that let you control the fan speeds between High and Low. When you open up the side panel, the power cable that goes to the 200mm fan on the side is disconnected from its power source. There are shutters that can be angled to whichever position you may want them to be, to help direct the air coming into the chassis from the side fan. So, if you wanted to point the airflow toward the top of the case where your CPU is located, you most certainly can without having to put a fan directly above it. Thermaltake also put a headset holder on the side of the case, so you'll be less likely to misplace your headset.
