Thermaltake Level 10 GTS Snow Edition Review



Well shame on me, and so much for forming preconceived notions. I somewhat discounted this case at first because it is so far removed from the ideals of the original case. What I should have done was look at this case for what it is. Frankly, it is a successful run at designing a case that is 1/7th the price of the original but still a very fluid and nicely finished mid-tower with one of the best hot swap systems in the industry. The GTS does all these things while managing to retain a wee bit of the Level 10 'cool' factor. The interior is nicely finished and makes for a good working space while installing components with grommets that actually stay in place. It is too bad that Thermaltake could not find a way to semi-seamlessly bolt, mold, or integrate a small handle into this case. It would have gone a long way to breaking up the 'box' effect and lending more 'Level 10'-ness to it. Being as light as this case is, it would be a candidate for my imaginary ' LAN case of the year' award. As an added bonus, you get a nifty place to hang your headgear when you are elbow-to-elbow with your frag-friends at the next FPS nerd Olympics. The only complaint I have of any consequence is that at this price point, I think it would be fair to include at least one of the optional fans. At $115 bucks, I don't think most people are going to be very persnickety about specific fans and will probably appreciate the side fan being there out of the box. 



  • Finish is top notch

  • One of the best Hot Swap systems around
  • Intakes are all filtered

  • Throw in an optional fan
