    PC chassis revolution

    Thermaltake's Level 10 chassis Extreme Gaming Station, or one of the most innovative and at the same time strange looking cases on the market should be available as of October. Among the reasons why this case should attract some attention is the fact that it was designed in cooperation with the BMW Group DesignWorks USA.

    The case has 666.3 x 318 x 614 mm dimensions and features what Thermaltake likes to call, Open Compartment Architecture, which means that components are individually enclosed and seperated in order to have better organization, faster installation and some other much more important benefits like for example, cooling and probably even lower temperatures.

    The new chassis is cooled by four fans, one 140mm in the front, one 120mm in the back and two 60mm for the HDD's. It also features a Smart-lock Security System which gives users an option to lock their PC hardware away from curious prying hands. The front placed I/O panel includes audio, eSATA and four USB ports.

    The case should appear in retail/e-tail during October with a US $690 price tag. The price sounds a bit steep, but at least you have a chance to be a part of PC chassis revolution.

    So what do you think? Great design or awful mess?

    My first thought when i look at it is: it's tedious to design an effective cooling system for a case with only one compartment, deciding on positive or negative pressure, filtering (or not), cable management etc., how are these things managed in such a design? Seems like a real can of worms from here..... looks interesting though.

    i guess we won't know the full in's and out's until release. It's good to see someone having a stab at a different design though. I've got a thermaltake case and have always been impressed with it's cooling capabilites but as you say, this one looks like cooling could be a little tricky to work out...

    Awesome looking case ! Such a radical departure from the norm superlatives escape me . Interesting point about the cooling situation . They must have thought about that b4 designing the case though . As the price would tend to aim the case at the high end market , cooling must have been a major consideration throughout the design process .
    If I had some money I would buy for sure :D
