Inside Thermaltake Armor A90
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Armor A90 uses black thumscrews to hold both side panels. In Figure 11 you have an overall view from inside the reviewed case while in Figure 12 you can see the case from behind the motherboard tray. As mentioned, the interior from this case is painted black. The motherboard tray has an opening on the area where the CPU is located, so if you want to upgrade your CPU cooler in the future with a model that comes with a different kind of back plate you won’t need to remove the motherboard from the case in order to install it. The motherboard tray, however, doesn’t have holes for you to route cables behind it. On the other hand, the hard drive bays are flushed with the left-side wall of the case instead of being flushed against the right-side wall as it usually happens. The consequence is that there is a “compartment” between the hard disk drive bays and the right-side panel for you to store cables. The motherboard tray also has some clips for you to use with zip-lock ties.

This case allows the installation of video cards up to 10 ¼” (26 cm) long and CPU coolers up to 7 1/8” (180 mm) tall.

Expansion cards are fastened using regular screws. We’d prefer to see thumbscrews here.

In Figure 14, you can see the power supply compartment of Armor A90. One cool feature is the presence of an adjustable support bracket, which can be moved to match the power supply size. An air filter is available here.
