Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Armor A90 is made mostly of steel, but does use a bit of plastic in the front bezel. The bezel is black to match the body of the chassis as well as the interior. This mid tower chassis does offer a triangular shaped window in the side panel. This triangular shape is what space was left when the design of trapezoidal and triangular shapes got molded into the design. These different shapes are representative of separate armor plates covering the exterior for a bullet proof look, although I don't suggest shooting one.
Outside on both the front and the top of the A90 you will find components of the front I/O. Between both of them, there is connections for four USB 2.0 ports, one e-SATA connection and two 3.5mm jacks for front panel audio. Inside the chassis you will find room for three 5.25" devices that can be exposed through the front via removable covers under the front door. Under those, the cage gets more slender and offers room for up to six 3.5" drives. The main body of the chassis can support full ATX and m-ATX motherboards and has seven expansion slots in the back to allow for many cards to be set in place.
The only thing left is the fans. Thermaltake places one, blue LED, 120mm fan in the front, but supplies screws for an additional 120mm fan there or even a 200mm. At the top, there is a 200mm fan already installed and also has blue LED's. That leaves the rear 120mm TurboFan, which does not light up, and a place in the door for another 120mm if you would like to add it. All three of the supplied fans are low RPM and offer terrific numbers as far as sound levels go.
Looking on Thermaltake's own web site, I saw that they display a MSRP of $99.99. Looking through a plethora of hits via Google shopping, most e-tailers are offering slightly better deals than that. There are places charging as little up front for the A90 as $79.99, but once I incorporated the shipping, it wasn't so great of a deal. Priced right in the middle, the Armor A90 lists at Newegg for $89.99 and is currently getting another $19.99 to ship it. Finding one is easy; let's get down to if it is worth the $110 it's going to take to get one to your door.
