Thermaltake lets its snow once again in its Level 10 lineup of cases with the Snow Edition of its Level 10 GTS, sporting its striking white and black color scheme. Perhaps its most defining feature is the distinct hot swap drive bay system for hard drives. See how it all works in our review of the Level 10 GTS Snow Edition case, geared toward enthusiasts who don't want to spend top dollar for a Level 10 series product but still rock all the style.

I must be absolutely blind, because I cannot, for the life of me, see where the word "style" comes in on that case. It looks absolutely GHASTLY IMHO, I really hope that BMW's design department didn't have anything to do with that, because they most definitely can do alot better.

That being said, it deserves points in the Substance over Style war, I'd rather have a case that is utilitarian rather than one that restricts airflow and makes doing anything in it a royal PITA.

Thermaltake cases are like that, they are a love them or hate them hard, in your face styling. I personally think the look is okay, not great but okay. The transition down from the full tower design does not seem to go well for this style.

Ha, that little headphone hanger gave me a laugh at first, but I can understand the functionality of it definitely. I'm actually kind of curious as to how much weight it can hold.

Yo, not for nothing but it's a pretty sick case. I also got thrown off with the headphone hanger. But not bad. On my current Element S case, my full sized cans sit on top. That little side holder it's a god send really. What I don't like is the HDD bays. It's kind of ugly. But I like the case. I'm actually considering this. All black for me though. Don't like the white.

Seems like a very decent case for cooling. Massive fan on the front provides good air intake at lower, quieter RPMs, fan at the back and two on the top allows for quick, exhaust. Does having a CPU cooler pointed directly at the exhaust like in that article really provide that much of a benefit over the typical, vent-at-the-wall cooler?

Does seem somewhat like a small case, not sure if that is due to the camera but it doesn't seem like it would be able to fit any higher spec cards. The styling is a bit different... not bad looking, just different. Cable management looks fairly clean aswell, I've seen neater ones, but definately better than mine.

Headphone hook seems pointless for most users. Other than people who have the PC sat either next to the monitor or on the desktop, probably won't be needed.

I don't tend to like white cases though, personally because things don't look brilliant in them. Hell, even having a normal optical drive looks fairly strange on a soft-touch case.

I use my holder on my Level 10 GT with my case on the floor all the time as does my brother with his Chaser Mk I. At first I thought I would not use it much but the truth is it is always in use, as soon as I take off my headphones they go on the hook.
