Thermaltake Level 10 GT Review

Interior (Continued)

As previously mentioned the Level 10 GT has 8 PCI slot covers, each having ventilation and secured via thumbscrews and a bracket. This bracket will need to be removed before you can install a graphics card due to not being able to remove the thumbscrews. Although this may improve security slightly, it’s going to be a hassle getting things in and out of the case frequently.

For cooling, the Level 10 GT takes advantage of a 140mm rear exhaust fan (3-pin – 1000RPM – 16dBA) and a top mounted exhaust - 200mm colorshift fan (600~800RPM, 13~15dBA).

At the front of the Level 10 GT we have 5 buttons, each of these can be pressed in and a HDD tray from the side can be extracted. During the installation section of this review I will show how to install a HDD into the case. In essence, the drive just slots into the tray and then the tray is softly pressed in – the drive will then connect with pre-installed eSATA power at the other side, thus making all of these trays hot-swappable.
