It's overpriced, it's heavy, and it's ugly(imo)...

and their liquid cooled system sucks BIG FAT AS*******. Actually that would be the one single reason not to buy it. Their lcs sucks terribly.

Not only does the tube kink easily, but their pumps are known to fail within six months or so. And it's weak.

In comparison to the armor, Armor is better, if you are looking at upgrading, you may like to take a look at Silverstone's cases and Lian Li, Coolermaster do make some high end ones but they wouldnt be much of an upgrade from the Armor IMO, I would look at the Silverstone TJ-09 or TJ-10

In the reviews section...

You need to power the pump on before you power the motherboard.
It would have been nice if Thermaltake would have worked out that little design flaw...

I think it's the best mass-produced case ever.

Then again, when I was learning the difference between a CPU and a PSU and was just getting into computers () it's the first non-HP/Dell computer case I saw ... so it has sedimental value to me

They've been around/released since I was about 12 ... they're old ... so uh, that's the only draw back. And the WC is blah.
2 OP pls nerf

Well, you don't _have_ to turn it on manually. You can install a relay switch that'll power the pump up for you.

You have to modify the case a little to install that. I've read about relays that install in a pci slot however.

Edit: Here's one pci slot relay switch from Sunbeam - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=2583
