Thermaltake Armor
 
I was going to purchase this at fry's today. I am just wondering who has it and how loud is this case? Hopefully somewhat quiet?

There are some pretty good reviews on this case, and I also know some people that have the case that love it. Overall its a good case, pretty quiet, lots of room to work with...
I would probably get the Antec 900 over it tho.

Its an awesome case. I have it. It runs very quiet. Great airflow too. I personally don't like the look of the 900 but that is up to you. I can tell you though that the Thermaltake Armor is a great case and I am very happy with it.

again I recommend the Thermaltake armor over the Antec 900, reasons why:

1. The build quality of the Antec 900 is crap, feel the flimsy side, you can punch a hole right through it, but you definately cant with a thermaltake armor

2. Thermaltake armor is a full tower case meaning more space for the heat to dissapate in and more space for all your stuff

3. Thermaltake armor is only slightly more expensive then a antec 900 now

4. Antec 900 looks like crap imho

The Armor is an awesome case, now matter which version you get.

this case, and the NZXT zero, are my favorite full towers
both amazing airflow

I actually had this case before and it got GREAT reviews and has 8 stock case fans!. It does have its flaws thought:

1. The LED lights tend to die out incredably fast

2. The beautiful piano gloss paint is EASILY scratched and do I mean easily, I scratched it within the first day of opening it out of the box!

3. The side door is really hard to open/close , I say the thermaltake armor is the best side door ever, you can open/close it in less then a second!

i really like this case as a full tower. Newegg.com - XCLIO A380 Silver SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail if u like it in black Newegg.com - XCLIO A380BK Fully Black High Gloss Finish SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

looks awsome two, and probably cools like a beast.
