Thermaltake Level 10 GT Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅11-07-11

The front and back of the Level 10 GT doesn’t look all that attractive. The front particularly looks and appears to be quite plastic. At the front we have 5 designated bays for installing the HDD from the side. Each of these bays has a mesh panel to encourage ventilation and to provide intake for the 200mm fan (600~800RPM, 13~15dBA) that is positioned behind each of these bays. Above this we have a small 3.5” cover giving functionality for an SD card reader or similar device. Next to this there is a key lock mechanism for securing the front fascia. Above we have a series of 5.25” bays – 4 in total, each coming with clips on either side for easy removal from outside of the case. Along the far side we have a series of FP connectivity including: power/reset button, activity LEDs, 4 x USB2.0 ports and HD audio jacks (headphone/microphone). Further back, running along the same panel we have a handle at the top of the case, this just allows for easy transportation.

Around the back of the Level 10 GT we have a space at the very bottom for mounting the PSU and a bracket for fastening cables. Moving up we have 8 PCI expansion slot covers each with ventilation for better airflow, all of the covers here are given added security/stability via an additional bracket. A 140mm fan has been positioned for the rear exhaust and above this 3 rubber grommets to accommodate water-cooling thus giving you more options for cooling.

On the underside of the Level 10 GT we have 4 rotating feet each having non-slip rubberised pads. Covering over half the length of the case we also have a removable dust filter this can be taken out very easily and cleaned if necessary.

At the top of the case we have part 1 of the connectivity controls. Here we can take advantage of eSATA, USB3.0 (via USB3.0 motherboard header) high and low fan speed control (for all 200mm fans) and LED control for each of the fans too.

Further back there is a large mesh panel that provides ventilation for the top mounted 200mm fan. This doesn’t have a dust filter attached.
