The Level 10 GT Battle Edition ships in a large black box. The product is shown on both sides, ideal for a retail store environment.
As this case is heavy, Thermaltake aren’t taking any chances and have included two very large Styrofoam blocks – much thicker than other chassis manufacturers.
In keeping with Thermaltake’s tradition, the Level 10 GT is also protected inside a fabric cover.
The Level 10 GT ships with a decent ‘accessory package box’ which is stored inside the chassis. They also ship a User Guide and ‘2011 catalog’.
Inside are several cable ties, as well as 4 packs of screws, a PSU extension cable, a speaker and a ‘Headset Hanger’.
This case is unlike anything else we have seen in recent years. With the extra detailing it wouldn’t look out of place on the back of an army truck heading into combat!
We like the appearance from all angles, and this colour scheme really does suit the modular styling of the original case design.
The front features 4 x 5.25″ drives and 1 x 3.5″ external bay. Also featured is an On/Off switch and reset switch, as well as 4 x USB 2.0 ports, a microphone port and a headphone port.
The top of the case incorporates a very strong handle, which is certainly needed if you want to be able to lift it – as well as a few sessions in the gym.
Also on top are an eSata port, and two Super Speed (USB 3.0) ports. There are also two fan speed buttons, and a fan LED button, which changes between 3 colour options for the main fans.
When we first noticed the ‘first aid cooling kit’ text listed beside the large side panel fan, we smiled. It really is an inspired idea to implement army style descriptions into the various panels and sections of the case.
In keeping with the army descriptors, Thermaltake have added ‘Rocket Launcher’ text next to the drive bays at the front of the case.
The other side of the case is extremely flat, but does feature a large T inset into the side of the case, as well as some more styling on the right.
