Thermaltake armor AMD LEO edition

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What do you guys think about this case? I was looking for a real eye-appealing, elite gaming case, but I wanted to only spend around 100$.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133184

I have CM690 coolermaster stock case, and I really don't like it. I hate the fact I had to zip tie all the cables from my power supply under the motherboard, and it was so thick that the sliding door barely closes on the back side. Also, I dislike the non-painted interior. It's a very solid case though.

You guys know of any extreme looking gaming cases? (side window, good cable management etc..)

I'm going to re-seat my CPU and I'm buying shin-etsu and probably this case, and I have a leo platform (AMD CPU Phen. II + ATI graphics) so I thought this case would be fitting.

Please let me know your opinions.

In my opinion, I would much rather wait and see of the nzxt phantom goes on sale somewhere for 100/110 dollars shipped again. Great cable management (behind the motherboard has a great amount of space for thick cables)

No sidewindow though, it has mesh, but with a little modding, you can easily put a plexi window from home depot inthere.

Ah thank you for your reply.

Now that you mention, I was torn between the thermaltake AMD leo edition vs the NZXT cases.

I like the Phantom; it's super sleek and exotic. I especially like the white model.

Because I had the coolermaster 690 and that was sort of a "plain" looking case, I really wanted something extreme looking.

I'm really digging the NZXT tempest EVO camouflouge edition because it has the very large side window, cable management, and obviously,exotic design.

Thanks for your input, you have me leaning toward NZXT now.

I also don't know if I want to buy a AMD Edition case also, if I decide to modify/build an i7 rig later on using that case lol

I much prefer the old Armors myself. These just don't look like they even deserve the Armor branding

Thanks for the input. I was probably going to build an i7 rig down the road, so I didn't want an AMD edition case lol.

I ended up going with the NZXT Tempest EVO Digital ArtictCamo finish. I wanted something flashy

If it means anything, my final choices were the NZXT Phantom, HAF932, or Antec 900.
