A letter from me to the beautiful, sexy Thermaltake Level 10 case. "I soooooooooooo want you... And I am going to get you."

I am definitely tired of struggling to find relevant and intelligent commentary on this subject. Everyone nowadays seem to go to extremes to either drive home their viewpoint or suggest that everybody else in the globe is wrong. Thanks for your concise and relevant insight...

Thank you. I do not know why so many people hate this case so passionately. I feel it is beautiful. I am not going to tell people not to get or to get it. I like it, and I love it.

I guess that it makes my lack of technological knowledge apparent, but that is one wicked machine, and I wouldn't know the first thing about the design.

Does it assist in cooling the innards of the machine better?

That is absolutely, hands down, the UGLIEST case I have ever laid eyes on. And I am even counting the ancient beige boxes that sit in a smoker's cave for 10 years.

Forgive me for saying so, but I can't believe it took two plus months to get this review and it doesn't mention anything about how quiet (or not) the case is, as it seems to me that it may be a bit on the noisy side. Also, with the complaint about about only the top two bays having SATA backplanes, is there a way to add them to the other bays? Would anyone with larger CPU coolers have spacing issues? The same goes for longer video cards (such as the new Radeon 5970). Or even larger PSU's? Furthermore it would be nice to see what the cable management looks like, since it seems to be implied that it didn't impress the reviewer much. I was really looking forward to this review as it seemed like it would be one of the few out there. I guess I'll have to hope for someone else to do a better job.

Any pictures of what it looks like once you've built in it?

I am a big fan of the look of th Pompidou Center in Paris.  Much of the supporting structure and mechanical elements are completely visible from the outside.  For someone interested in knowing how things work it's a real treat.

This enclosure (if that really is the right term,) is a reminder of that landmark.

The idea of a central backplane is the best idea to come out of this...thing.  Plugging in to a backplane without worrying about bumping a card or accidentally pulling another cable loose is really a cool thing for those like myself who wear size XL gloves.

This particular...thing is not the last we are going to see of many of the ideas for enclosure design.  Think of it as a concept car:  way out there in its design, impractical, but mesmerizing in how it challenges how you think an enclosure ought to look and function.

As far as the look of this thing.  I can understand how some would call it ugly, but for me it is transcendently beautiful.   It goddamn near brings a tear to my eye it is so fucking beautiful.

I would tell the designers of the next version of this...thing to increase the modularity of this thing so that you could unplug the SATA module and work on the entire module on the bench without moving the rest of it and then return it to the backplane before starting up.  Same with the MOBO, PCIe slot extensions, back panel and front panel.  I could easily see some of these ideas making their way into enclosures with more conventional aesthetics.

Just like concept cars of 10 years ago (that look like, and have features like the cars we drive today,) this...thing has features you will see in your computer in 10 years.

Is that $700 without a PSU? If so, then $400 of that case is due to the fact that BMW aided in the design; to me, it looks - at most - like a $300 case.

I personally find this case ugly. Don't see anything appealing in it at all.
