Introduction and Specifications

Thermaltake set a new standard for creativity and design when they introduced the original Level 10 case at Computex in 2009, but many PC builders couldn’t afford the $800 price tag. In 2011, Thermaltake recognized the need for a consumer-level gaming case that featured many of the modern design elements and features that made the original Level 10 case so popular. The release of the Level 10 GT shows Thermaltake’s commitment to the enthusiast community and does it at a more competitive price of $280 at most retailers.

What makes the Level 10 GT so special? Not only does it include a similar modular design to the original Level 10, but Thermaltake also updated the case with support for USB 3.0 and a better airflow system. Thermaltake also went the extra mile and added a headphone carrier on the left side of the case, which shows their attention to detail when it comes to hardcore gamers’ wants and needs.

The Level 10 GT also includes a hinged side panel for easy access to the motherboard and other hardware components. There are also mounts for 120mm or 140mm radiators for custom water cooling solutions.The top panel of the case includes two USB 3.0 ports, one eSATA port, and a nifty fan and LED controller to swap the colors on the fans from red, blue, green, or tri-color. The front panel has an additional four USB 2.0 ports, power/reset buttons, and audio/mic jacks.

They also added three massive, tri-color 200mm fans on the top, front, and left panels of the case and five swappable hard drive bays that also support 2.5" solid state drives. Thermaltake also created a custom cable management system where they claim users won’t need to hide extra cables behind the motherboard tray.
