After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

  • Thermaltake Armor A90 Case Review
  • Thermaltake Armor A90 Case Review



    We really liked the attention to detail on the A90, and the many options for fan configurations. The finish on the case is excellent both inside and out. Made from SECC steel the side panels feel slightly flimsy but the stamped areas do stiffen it up nicely to help limit vibrations. Features such as the keyboard and mouse cord lock and water cooling knock outs are easily missed at first glance but add to the overall allure of the case.

    The exterior styling is unusual and that is what also sets it apart from the competition. Large geometric shapes and varying levels add a lot of distinction and depth to the design. The design elements are also carried thru the chassis to complete the overall package and bring everything together nicely. When you build a new rig you want people to notice it and this case will certainly get noticed. The blue lighting used in the front and top fan also adds a subtle custom look and help accentuate the side panel window. 

    Noticeably absent are any sound deadening accessories and internal cable routing channels.  These are both rather surprising given the long list of features already included.
    Now for our ever popular list of good things and bad things happy smile
