Thermaltake announced this week its latest tempered glass and aluminum case, the A700 Aluminum Tempered Glass Edition, aka A700 Aluminum TG. Boasting CNC machined aluminum panels surrounding the periphery and 5mm-thick tempered glass sides, the case is designed to hold full ATX motherboards, CPU coolers up to 200mm in height, and graphics cards up to 410mm in length.
The A700 Aluminum TG supports up to three 140mm top fans, 420mm radiators, and/or two 200mm fan on both the top and front. Most of this ventilation is handled through vented sections at the top and front of the side panels, and all intake locations (top, front, bottom) include dust filters. Two factory installed 140mm fans are included.
Located at the front edge of the top panel, “front panel” ports include two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, and one USB “Type-C” which we’ll assume is USB 3.1 Gen2 since it’s on a high-end case. Next to those are the expected power button with ring-shaped power LED, HDD activity LED, microphone and headphone jacks, and a reset button.
Thermaltake has much to say about the case’s support for its own liquid cooling gear, but not much to say about availability and pricing: We expect full details following the end of the show.

Looks like an inWin case with thinner materials.Reply
That looks sweet!Reply
There's only so much one can do with a rectangular box.mihen said:Looks like an inWin case with thinner materials.
We reviewed Lian Li's nautilus and pyramid shaped cases, they weren't very practical concerning size vs space.
I like this design. Its like Phanteks and InWin had a love child. The way the bezels are done to keep fan noise down on the front and top is very clean.Reply
No spot for an optical drive though. I must be a dieing breed, I still use mine regularly. The case looks clean, but if I was going to bet thermal performance is going to be mediocre, it's just to closed off. Front is solid, top is solid, just not enough room to breathe.Reply
