Manufacturer: Thermaltake
Street Price: £200 inc. VAT (GBP) (At time of review)

Thermaltake’s Level 10 series needs little introduction. Most of you reading this will be aware of the first rendition Thermaltake brought to the market. Thermaltake originally teamed up with automobile brand BMW to bring a spectacular “money no object” chassis with such a unique design that all enthusiasts the world over recognise its appearance.

Being unique, heavy, featuring a complex design and working with big name BMW meant that the cost of the Level 10 soared way beyond what many would spend on a chassis. Now, Thermaltake are back with a simplified version of the original Level 10 – the Level 10 GT. In essence this is the smaller brother of the original design and comes with a smaller price tag too. We first saw the Level 10 GT at CeBIT 2011 and since then we have been keen to review this new product. So let’s begin our analysis of the Level 10 GT from Thermaltake.

Thermaltakes take on the Level 10 GT:
Following the high-profile launch of Level 10 Super Gaming Modular Case, the design collaboration between Thermaltake and BMW Group DesignworksUSA, in 2009, Thermaltake looks to invigorate the PC enthusiasts with the latest Level 10 GT computer case. The design language of the Level 10 GT expresses a passion for visual aesthetics deriving from demanding and immersive game play and multimedia entertainment enthusiasm. Modern games and entertainment applications also require highly advanced hardware configurations, which at the same time request more space and optimized ventilation than conventional hardware.
