Thermaltake recently unveiled a new update to its popular Level 10 GT full tower chassis. The new case has been dubbed the "Level 10 GT Snow Edition," likely to due to its glossy white exterior finish. Weighing in at 28 lbs, just under 2 ft tall, 11” wide, and 2 ft deep the new case packs plenty of drive bays, air and water cooling options, LEDs, front port IO, and most importantly for enthusiasts support for extra long graphics cards up to 14” in length and motherboards up to Extended ATX (E-ATX) size.
More specifically, the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition maintains the same build material and general design and layout of the older dark Level 10 GT chassis; however, it brings a few tweaks to the table in the aesthetics department. While the interior of the case remains black, the exterior features a glossy white finish over most of the case, which is then accented by various black mesh inserts that serve as drive bay covers and cooling fan intakes/exhausts. (Personally, I find the new black and white look very classy and well designed.) On the Interior, not much has changed compared to its predecessor, however. There are still a total of 10 drive bays, including five 3.5” or 2.5” hard drive hot swap bays, four 5.25” optical drive bays, and one front facing 3.5” bay. The water cooling ports and five cooling fans remain the same (intakes: two 200mm fans and one 120mm fan, exhausts: one 200mm fan and one 140mm fan) as the standard Level 10 GT as well.
The bottom line is that if you already own a standard Level 10 GT, this is not a must-have upgrade; however, for those in the market for a well designed high end full tower chassis it is certainly worth a look as the new aesthetic design only serves to improve upon the Level 10 GT’s pedigree. The case is available for purchase now through various retailers and is going for around $290 USD at the time of this writing. For further information and photos, please see the Thermaltake website.
