We first got an eyes-on the BMW-designed Thermaltake PC case during CeBit and we liked the way it looked. 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. Still, we didn’t know exactly how things worked on the inside or how it would circulate air for cooling.
Today we got an opportunity to go hands-on with it. Each compartment, including each drive bay, has its own cooling with a fan on the bottom and a fan on top. As expected, it’s not the most easy-access or mod-friendly case, but it still looks pretty cool.
I don't think any large aftermarket heatsinks will fit... BUT It is pretty cool anyway. Maybe we will get lucky and it will be a reasonable price.
But I bet this thing will be very expensive.
Innovative new design by BMW...
Perfect for posers who think image and a badge are more important than cost or actual usefulness/functionality.
Hmm... exactly like BMW cars and their drivers really.
I prefer a normal big case but this is on is so hot looking and I want one just to keep it and look at it.
I guess i'll wait and hope that 12 or 18 months from now, a similar design with less flaws and much lower price tag will be out.
