When it released its Level 10 two years ago, Thermaltake announced to the world it was setting a new standard in case design. Crafted with the help of BMW DesignworksUSA, it was a one-of-a-kind creation with a one-of-a-kind problem: its $800 price. So one can't blame Thermaltake for wanting to capitalize on the original model's innovations by creating (necessarily lesser) versions ordinary people could afford. The first arrived last year with the sub-$300 Level 10 GT, and now there's the Level 10 GTS, which is priced at just over $100. Our review unit was the $114.99 (list) Snow Edition, which bears much of Thermaltake's usual commitment to quality, but is a bit too confused to grab anyone who really cares about aesthetics. As its name indicates, the Snow Edition is colored white. Or, to be more precise, off-white: It's not beige, but it's also more tinted than the tundra, or even Thermaltake's own Armor Revo Snow Edition. (The Level 10 GTS is also available in traditional black.) We don't have a problem with this approach in theory—the Level 10 GT Snow Edition was actually more attractive than its corresponding black version—but the other treatments the Level 10 design has received here stick out a bit more.
I did not know that this case was headed my way so of course it caught me by surprise when I opened my door. The first thing to catch my eye was 'Level 10' and that it was snow white. I got excited for a second, thinking I had a new tricked-out version of one of the most original and iconic cases in recent memory that is the result of a group effort by Thermaltake and BMW Design Group. When I quickly realized that it wasn't even the GT version of this case, but rather the Level 10 GTS version, I watched the box shrink in size considerably. While the Thermaltake Level 10 GT version is a Level 10 designed to get a good part of the design concept in the hands of the masses, the GTS Version is based on a box cabinet and seemingly aimed at a different market entirely. Loosely based on the original Level 10 that is massive in both stature and weight, the GTS is a highly stylized and compartmentalized affair. The original Level 10 has a lot of architectural depth as it wraps its sections around the various components seemingly cantilevered to a common vertical side. Truly an enclosure that, in silhouette, looks more at home in a Frank Lloyd Wright coffee table book than on a shelf in Micro-Center. I was curious how much of the Level 10 flavor made it into, or could be worked into this stripped down, box-based GTS version.
