Conclusions

The Thermaltake Mozart Tx is a very unique case.  It’s big, bad, and beautiful.  The Mozart Tx is one of the most versatile enclosures on the market and offers many options and great flexibility for countless different applications.  In addition to its large size and cube shape, the Mozart Tx can actually house two independent systems (assuming one of them is Micro ITX).  The all-aluminum front bezel provides clean, elegant styling and the case can be fitted with side windows for a custom look.

 

The four separate compartments provide plenty of room for mounting components and the system is well designed for adding a water-cooling system.  With the option for mounting up to ten 120mm fans (five included) the Tx can be transformed into a small wind tunnel or provide excellent case cooling with multiple, low speed fans for very quiet computing.

 

My only two minor complaints both involve hinged doors.  First, I hope that future versions of the Mozart Tx will allow the hinged side panel doors to be easily removed.  And second, I would like to see the pop-off front bezel be converted to a hinged door.  (I know, you just can’t please everyone… 🙂
