Thermaltake Reveals Level 10 GT Chassis

Last week during CES 2011, Thermaltake announced an updated version of its Level 10 chassis, an impressive if not futuristic-looking beast designed by Thermaltake and BMW Designworks USA back in 2009. The new Level 10 GT model is a bit more streamlined than the original, measuring 23 x 11.1 x 23.2-inches.

"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," the company said. "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."

The full tower chassis weighs around 28 pounds and supports motherboards up to eATX. It also provides room for four 5.25-inch drives, five internal hot-swappable 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives, and an external 2.5-inch drive. There's a 360-mm limit for VGA cards, a 190-mm height limit for the CPU cooler, and support for 1/2-inch, 3/8-inch and 1/4-inch water tubes. There's even room for a top-mounted radiator.

On the cooling front, the Level 10 GT's LED ColorShift system has a 200-mm front intake, a 200-mm top exhaust fan and a 200-mm side fan. Other features include a 140-mm rear Turbo exhaust, a windowed side panel, an all-black exterior and interior, and a top-mounted I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port and one HD Audio port.

"Right from the beginning of the year 2011 Thermaltake is once again driving inspiration, by introducing a full tower chassis that blends legendary iconic form with convenient function, resulting in an overall perfect user experience," the company said.

Thermaltake did not provide pricing or availability, so stay tuned.
