TT Armor Revo Gene Mid Tower Case VO800M1W2N

When Thermaltake debuted the Armor chassis back in 2005 is was a MONSTER. I would know as I bought one and used it lovingly for quite a few years. Its styling was awesome with the pair of aluminum front doors and big side panel window and its sheer size was
intimidating. Since then Thermaltake has kept the Armor series a live releasing a few new models here and there based off the same HUGE full-tower chassis in the form of the Armor+ and Armor+ MX.
Thermaltake first mini-sized the Armor in the form of the Armor A series,
then brought back the front aluminum doors with the Armor Revo,
and now has simplified it a tad and lowered the price point with the Armor Revo Gene.
The Gene drops the price to around $130 shipped and carries a 3-year warranty. Let’s check this beast out!
