Why Thermaltake Casing is my number 1 Choice is becoz of the way Tt engineer the case layout n design to cater from entertainment, gaming and last modders!!:b2: I feel they always choose the best material so that it can last as long as possible. The design they had r always out of the box! Tt always focus on the airflow, look at the mesh, PSU holder, top part and Front panel, always have holes for air intake:b1: really love the way they place their air intake n outlet! When I hear CONVERGENT had this competition, I know I wanna to impress the local on how Thermaltake will be my and SINGAPORE Number One.
