Thermaltake's Awesome BMW-designed Case

Design houses from the automotive industry have penned the lines for more than just cars. In fact, some even dabble into computer parts.

The latest design house to try its hand in design is the BMW-owned BMW DesignworksUSA. But unlike Porsche Design’s minimalist approach, the BMW-designed computer case is something completely outlandish, yet intriguing.


While fancy computer cases with windows and LED lighting are now the norm, the Level 10 case that BMW penned for Thermaltake looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie.

Instead of just having one giant box for all the computer components to breathe the same air, the Level 10 separates everything inside a case into four parts -- the PSU, optical drives, hard disk drives and one for the CPU and expansion cards.

It remains to be seen how friendly this design will be for ease of access, noise levels and cooling, but it definitely sets itself apart with its looks. See autoevolution for practical shots from CeBit.

    Wow...I'm guessing it's going to cost ATLEAST $500-700.

    Hmm, that's pretty bizarre looking.

    I love it!
    I have a feeling that cooling will be an issue. No aftermarket heatsinks fitting in there, and obviously no water loops.
