Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Edition Installation and Testing:

Ok, so we've already seen what the Armor Revo case looks like, now we will put a system into it and see if it can perform as well as it looks.

The Armor Revo features 6 hard drive bays which all features tool-less installation and removal. As you can see below they are built to accomodate either 3.5" drives or 2.5" drives (2.5" drives will require you using screws to attach them to the hard drive tray).

Putting a system into the Armor Revo was pretty easy to do, actually it was one of the easiest cases I've put a system into thanks to the massive amount of room inside the case and the amount of cable management features that are included. Installation probably took me about 15 minutes and if you look at the picture below (left) it looks super clean and tidy without a bunch of cables sticking out.

The rear of the case is another story, there are cables everywhere, but thankfully you can't see them once you get the side cover back on and it can be our little secret.

Overall I'd give this case top marks for ease of installation, it looks like I actually spent time trying to keep my cable tidy and neat when in fact I spent very little time at all getting everything installed.
