Thermaltake Level 10 Chassis Review - Can BMW change PC design?
Six independent HDD caddies make up the front of the Level 10, with
completely hidden cabling and LEDs. The top 2 HDD drive bays are cooled
by 2 separate fans . Each HDD bay has a physical button in the bay to
detect the presence of the drive that controls an external LED to
signify that the drive is inside. These HDD fans draw air from the
bottom of each drive and out across the top. These fans do draw air
from all the HDDs, even though they’re only located at the top of the
#1 and #2 HDDs.
Three 5.25" bays are at the very top, in their own box. The top ODD
Bay includs a flip-up cover with an adjustable eject tab to work with
most CD drives. The power supply is behind the 5.25" bays inside its
own box, and the motherboard occupies the final (largest) compartment
just below the PSU.
The front-panel connectors include your standard USB 2.0 ports
(x4), eSATA port (x1), and standard audio jacks (mic & headphone).
The case fits standard ATX, extended ATX and micro-ATX boards. The motherboard tray is removable.
The back panel contains two locking mechanisms; one for the HDD/ODD
caddies and one for the PSU/MB/Back Panel. While the back panel can be
difficult to put on; you sometimes have to fiddle with the hard drive
locking mechanism before it will go back, I found that having the
HDD in the Locked position solved 99% of that issue...
Removing the back panel reveals a sizable channel of hidden cable
management channels. This area provides access to the underside of the
motherboard, access to the CPU for easy removal of the cooling bracket
/ water-block bracket and access to the HDD connectors.
