Thermaltake Level 10 GT? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
The Level 10 GT is a side-grade from a HAF-X.

Level 10 GT Pros (in relation to the HAF-X):
-Built in filters on all air intakes, with a very simple design. (Which is extremely important in a high airflow case)
-More cable management holes. (the HAF-X lacks proper cable management holes below the motherboard, making connecting front panel devices slightly more difficult)
-Better side panel retention mechanism, and fan power connector. (On the side panel with the fan, it uses a very simple and sturdy set of posts to hold the door on, and the fan connection is built into the side panel, making it effectively wireless)

Level 10 GT Cons(in relation to the HAF-X):
-Less fan options overall, with lower overall airflow (it's close, but the HAF-X is still superior in this regard).
-Less cable management space behind motherboard tray (again, it's close, but the HAF-X wins here)
-Less watercooling options (the HAF can support a 360mm rad, whereas the Level 10 GT can only support a 240mm rad internally without modification).

Both are excellent cases, with their own pros and cons...either one will serve you well. As you have the HAF-X, I'd hold off on the Level 10 GT unless you really would like a change.

I can most certainly testify that cleaning the Level 10 GT is easy. The only bugger I have is the amount of plastic covering the hotswap bays, with added grid-pattern plastic on top of this making the mesh annoying to clean of visible dust.

The dustfilters are, however, extremely easy to remove, clean and reapply.

I just built my new PC with the snow level 10. Fantastic case, it's a bit out there in looks, but it was such a dream to put it all together. Plenty of room, easy cable management, fantastic hot swap hard drives, and a terrific designed door. Love it.

There is no reason other than the **** factor to go from a HAF-X to a Level10 GT.

Level 10 looks awesome on a side note.

Charming statement, fella, but you're clearly taking the piss without even having compared them.

Having built in the HAF-X just three days ago I'll say this right now: They're both flavor.

The HAF-X has the same annoying HDD mounting as the NZXT Phantom where the "bumps" are horrible to get right, and so the HDD won't slide into place without work. On the other hand, the Level 10 GT doesn't feature a toolless operation at all, although it's all hot-swappable bays.

For Sandy Bridge at least the motherboard cut-out is entirely misplaced in the HAF-X, while the Level 10 GT has a good bit of extra space.

Feeding cable through certain spots in the Level 10 GT was a pain compared to the HAF-X, and the space behind the motherboard "feels" smaller. The 3-pin fan connectors were very short on the HAF-X. They both could be better off, but neither is really bad, and the result of good cable management will be very visible and very glorious in both cases.

In the end however both are good cases, but both also have some odd solutions.

EDIT: I just remembered one feature that I honestly rather liked about the HAF-X mind you. I was installing a micro-ATX board, and what I found was that the case had a very useful visual guide in which spacers to add. No looking in a goddamn manual or anything.

EDIT #2: Cleaning the Level 10 GT is guaranteed to be easier than the HAF-X. I couldn't locate any easily accessible dust filters at all, which is an entirely different story from my Level 10 GT. Only the frontpanel requires you to remove anything at all, namely the front bezel, to access the filters.
