Thermaltake Level 10 GT Full Tower PC Case ReviewTue, Mar 29, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Installing parts into the Level 10 GT
Included parts for the Level 10 GT are a little sparse, but it is all that is needed. You get four reusable wire ties, hard drive mounting screws, extra fan screws, and motherboard mounting screws. You also get a 4/8pin extension cable, speaker, and the headset holder.
The headset holder has tabs that lock into the side of the Level 10 GT. It is installed and removed quiet easily for transportation.
The hard drive mounting screws have a flat head to them so they can mount flush to the drive tray and still slide into the drive cage
When I installed my NZXT Hale 90 power supply the thought I had earlier for possible issues for long body PSU’s became a reality. The power supply is a standard depth power supply and the cables are up against the hard drive cage. The back of the power supply is very close to the upper tab on the motherboard tray. So if you have a long body power supply you will have to figure a way to get it in, or cut the tab on the motherboard tray off.
The rest of the system installed very easily and no major issues come up.
The wire routing was fairly easy as well. If this was a perment install I would have wire tied all the wires, but even as I have it I was able to get a clean look on the system side and I was still able to get the side panel on without hassle. The large CPU cut out even allowed for access to the CPU backing plate on the not so standard Intel DX59SO motherboard layout.
With the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU cooler I have installed I was able to still reach the thumb screw for the upper security bracket. With a radiator installed this will be very hard to reach for anyone with large hands.
And the build finished with the addition of the headset holder.
With the system powered up. With the system fired up and running the fans on low are quite quiet. On high they are not to bad, definitely in the livable range. The fan control and LED mode back-lights are bright, looking straight at them is harsh. They will light up the ceiling above the case.
Here is a short video of the case lighting options.
