The Thermaltake Armor+ MX Case
Thermaltake has been making quality cases, coolers and power supplies for as long as I can remember, and just about anyone that has shopped for parts for a build has come across a Thermaltake product of some flavor. Today we are looking at the Armor+ MX case. The Armor+ MX case is different from Armor cases of the past as it is not a full or super tower case, it is a mid tower. With this version being a mid tower the case is almost 3 inches shorter in height and 5.3 inches shallower in depth, so it will be interesting to see how our test system fits. Before we get to far, lets take a look at the specifications for the Armor+ MX

The box for the Armor+ MX has simple only sporting a nice shot of the case and the case specifications. Our case came to us in the normal manor, but the box looked as it took a hit in shipping.
With the case out of the box the case is wrapped in a cheese cloth like wrapping and foam end caps.
Out of the wrapping we find our case is unharmed, so on with the review.
