Thermaltake really needs no introduction; their name is already synonymous with personal computing. For the new PC owner, taking his or her first trip to the local mom and pop store, I'm sure there will be Thermaltake offerings on the shelf for him to see. For those of us that have been on the scene a little longer, we have seen just about everything you can think of relating to aftermarket computer parts. Whether you are in the market for a case, power supply, cooler, or just about anything we can imagine, Thermaltake has an offering to fit your needs.
You may have noticed this new chassis shares the series of another chassis that Thermaltake designed a few years ago. The original armor series had "wings" on the sides that would open out, exposing the all ventilated front bezel. The insides were left exposed with no paint, and there was a strange dual window in the door that showed just as much of the drive racks as it did the components. This new submission shares its bases in naming of the series only. While it is from the same manufacturer, don't expect this new submission to be a "revised Armor", as it is more an Element series design with a twist.
Today Thermaltake has sent me the Armor A90 mid tower case to have a look over it. As I mentioned, the twist of the chassis is the armor plating concept that makes it an obvious candidate for the Armor series moniker. Looking inside the chassis however, it is easy to see strong influences from the Element chassis I have showed you earlier this year. I say let's get to the specifications so you have an idea of what is going on, then we can get to the images and see what the Armor A90 from Thermaltake is really all about.
