We've all heard about it, BTX. This is supposed to be the next industry standard in motherboard and case designs, but it is still very slow to come. As a matter of fact, at the time of this writing there are no readily available mainboards on the market that utilize this new form factor. Now don't get me wrong, I believe that it will eventually make its way to the market and it will indeed become the new standard, but it is taking a terribly long time to come to fruition.
So what happens when it does become a reality and you're ready to make that move to upgrade to a BTX style motherboard? Will you have to dump your case and buy another one that supports the new layout? To answer this in one word, no.
Since the BTX standard has already been standardized, Thermaltake has come up with a simple solution in the form of a BTX Upgrade Kit. While it doesn't come as a standard feature of the Armor series enclosure, it is available already for you so that you'll be prepared for the new toys when they finally show up in the stores.
The kit comes with everything needed to convert the case to a normal BTX design. Just mount the BTX version SRM plate, replace the complete back panel, screw in a few standoffs in the proper place and you're set. With enclosures getting expensive again, it is good to see that Thermaltake has taken a serious stance with regards to us wasting our money.
