For the tenth company anniversary Thermaltake came up with something special and developed in cooperation with BMW Group Designworks USA a futuristic PC case. The name: Level10.
2009 is coming to an end and PC Games Hardware takes a look at the past year. What caught the attention of our users and the people on the web? To answer this question we checked our statistics and searched for the most popular articles of the year. Today we want to reveal the most popular article of March 2009. This article wasn't just the top article of March, but also the fourth most viewed in the whole year.
The Level 10 doesn't look like a traditional PC case. Instead of putting all the components into a big box, motherboard, hard drives, optical drives and PSU got their own compartments that are attached to a massive pedestal. For the design Thermaltake cooperated with the BMW Group Designworks USA. During development the visual appearance was, besides the new concept, one of the most important objectives.
The case will officially be introduced at the Computex, which starts on June3. At the Cebit we had a chance to take a look at the Level 10. Thermaltake mainly used aluminum to build their new product. The employees at the booth didn't give us a official price, but we estimate that the Level 10 will cost between 450 and 600 Euro. In our gallery you can find several pictures of the case.
