Thermaltake Armor A60 Mid Tower Case Review

The Thermaltake Armor A60 case is clad in black from the inside to the outside and has a tough look to it. The Armor A60 had the world's first SideClick EasySwap design for 3.5” HDD when it came out. Read on to see how this $90 mid tower case that is directly aimed at the PC gamer and enthusiast crowd does when we build a system inside it!

Nice review.

I especially liked that you paid attention to ab arcane part of the case: behind the motherboard tray. You said there was "almost no room at all behind the right side panel to properly hide your wires." One thing I might ask for next time: measure the distance from the back of the mb tray to the side panel. That would bring home to us just how cramped it is. One Tt user wrote me that the behind-the-mb-tray space was 7mm! That number speaks for itself, doesn't it?

Thanks for the review.

There is 9\16 of an inch behind the tray to hide the wires. Not much room at all.

First you upload the pic to a free image hosting site (some examples are ImageShack, TinyPic, or Photobucket). Then copy and paste the url that the host site provides for the picture that you uploaded and use the "img" button to wrap code around that in your post. That will provide a link from this site to that picture, and automatically place it in your post.
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

I have a HSF very similar to the one you posted, it's a Scythe correct? Does it use the dinky pushpin attaching mechanism? I like the case, hope it serves you well.

Nice setup man, you did a great job. I know how hard it is to hide the wiring, but you kept it fairly tidy.

As I m not english I dont know what A HSF is, I presume you mean the cpu cooler, and yes it use the dinky wires to connect the fan, but it seams fairly adequate and easy tho work on if it has to be removed.
The fancontroller is also scythe, and gives some extra wires for the connectors and sensors, but it does an excellent job in keeping the case quiet and cool.

and thanks for the compliment about the tidiness in the case,the back looks diffrent.....lol
