Thermaltake Armor A60 Case Review

Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The top panel of the Thermaltake Armor A60 can be seen in Figure 6, and it is quite different from the top panel available on the A90. Both cases come with a “200-mm” fan installed (800 rpm, 15 dBA, glowing blue, model TT-1720), but the A60 comes with a space for you to install a second fan (120 mm). The “200 mm” fan isn’t 200 mm in size. We measured it and it has 170 mm with 160 mm blades. We think someone should step forward and do something to standardize fan sizes. This “200 mm” can be replaced by a 120 mm fan, if you like. The top fan uses a standard peripheral power connector, so you have to install it directly on your power supply and can’t monitor its speed.

The bottom panel of the A60 is identical to the A90’s, with a mesh to match the fan of the power supply. This mesh has an air filter that is accessible from outside the case.

The rear panel of the A60 is also identical to the A90’s. The only difference between the two models here is that in the new A60 two of the four holes for liquid cooling solutions come already broken and with a plastic ring. The rear panel features a 120 mm fan (1,000 rpm, 16 dBA, model TT-1225, three-pin power connector), four holes for hoses of liquid cooling solutions, an anti-theft device for keyboard and mouse, tabs for you to install a padlock or a warranty seal to prevent people from opening the computer, and a mesh above the area where the expansion cards are installed. The slot covers are vented, which may improve airflow inside the case. The power supply is installed at the bottom of the case and the rear panel and the interior of this case are painted black. In Figure 8, you can also see the USB 3.0 cable to be connected on the motherboard rear panel.
