I have seen a few of the Armor series cases that Thermaltake made over the past year. I liked the use of awkward angles and irregular shapes to represent armor plating and it gave the series the look of an impenetrable bunker for your hardware. The largest, the A90, had plenty of room for all of your goods, a window to see inside of the chassis and had a very unique exterior. The A60, while being a touch smaller, holds on to all the features of the A90, but takes on its own personality with the exterior design. There was even a red and black "AMD Leo Edition" that has a red window and red LEDs. With the trend of bringing the size down and offering really good feature sets, good pricing, and a unique looking chassis, what is next?
Well, you can always add an entry to the Small Form Factor or SFF segment of chassis design. Now, when most people think SFF, they immediately gravitate to Lian Li or Silverstone, but dreams of building a portable gamer on a budget usually get dashed by the cost of a full aluminum chassis, or maybe the configuration and airflow aren't up to par to handle the powerhouse you plan to put in the smallest package possible to impress your friends and foes at the next LAN event. Thermaltake jumped in with both feet and threw the A60 in the dryer for a while until it was just the right size. Not in reality, just conceptually!
Today we are going to be looking at the Armor A30 Gaming Cube from Thermaltake. As the series would suggest, the A30 keeps the odd angles and bunker-like exterior of the much larger cases that preceded this on. There are some changes in the feature set, the A30 now offers USB 3.0 and what I think are the largest windows of all three cases in this series. Odd as it is that the smallest chassis offers the best view, at a glance of the exterior of the chassis, and from what I saw on the box, I am already impressed and eager to dive in and get this build underway, so let's get right to it!
