Up for review today we had the Thermaltake Armor A90, a great combination of features, aesthetics and sheer size. As you can see below, the Armor A90 can fit video cards up to 10.5″ which is any card aside from a Radeon HD 5970, and you can use CPU coolers up to 165mm tall. Read on to see if this cool looking $90 case is right for you!
It is pretty clean aside from the pesky 8-pin ATX power connector going all the way around the motherboard. For those wondering, the video card in the photo above is an ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB which measures in at around 8.5-inches in total length; there is a hair under 12″ of room for a video card before it hits the HDD cage, so installing the ATI Radeon HD 5970 video card is not possible. ATI Radeon HD 5870’s or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480’s will fit with ease, though. Thermaltake officially states that the A90 chassis will fit a video card that is no longer than 10.5″.
