Thermaltake Level 10 GT Final Thoughts:

The original Level 10 case was designed by Thermaltake and BMW and turned quite a few heads and quickly became a "Dream Case" for many enthusiasts. The original Level 10 case unfortunately carried a steep ~$800 price tag which made it tough to justify for most people. Fast forward a year and now we've got the new Level 10 GT case which takes design elements of the original Level 10 and puts them into a case that is much more affordable for the average consumer. The Level 10 GT is priced at less than half of the original Level 10 case while still keeping some of the "Uniqueness" that the Level 10 offered.

The Level 10 GT is priced higher than a good majority of cases that we've taken a look at, but we found the "uniqueness" of the Level 10 GT to be enough to justify the price. This case is most definitely still a "Premium" case due to the ~$279 USD price tag, but it is a whole lot easier to justify the price than the original version.

The overall build quality of the Level 10 GT is very good. The metal side door has some really nice hinges which makes opening up the side panel super easy (no thumbscrews required). My biggest complaint would probably be the hot-swap HDD trays which are made of plastic and if I could make a suggestion I would beef up the quality just a little bit.

As far as features go, the Level 10 GT has quite a few. Built-in fan and lighting controls is nice to have. More than adequate cooling and easy access to the inside (thanks to a super easy to open side door) are some of the biggest features that we liked.


The Thermaltake Level 10 GT case is one of the more unique cases that has come across the BCCHardware test bench in a while and its unique shape and design is by far the biggest selling feature of the Level 10 GT. The price of the Level 10 GT might be a little high for some people but for a premium case the price tag is justifiable (and much cheaper than the original Level 10 case). The Level 10 GT has more features than you can shake a stick at, fan controllers, ample cooling, and hot-swap HDD bays make this case very attractive. Thanks to the great build quality, nice amount of features, and unique design we've awarded the Thermaltake Level 10 GT case our "Editor's Choice - Gold" award. If you want a case that people notice and want the room to build the ultimate system then the Level 10 GT is definitely worthy of your consideration.

  

Pros:

  • Unique design
  • Similar design to original Level 10 case at less than half the price.
  • Spacious design
  • Lots of features
  • Good airflow

 

Cons:

  • Hot-swap HDD bays feel a bit flimsy
  • More plastic then the original Level 10
