Thermaltake Armor A60

Thermaltake has expanded its midtower Armor series with the Armor A60, a practical and durable case with USB 3.0 connectivity. What makes the Armor A60 a builder-friendly enclosure is the externally
accessible SideClick EasySwap 3.5 HDD bay and support for up to seven fans. The left side panel includes a 3.5-inch HDD bay with a spring-loaded cover that houses one of six 3.5-inch HDD drawers (these are also compatible with 2.5-inch drives) and acts as a hot-swap bay (that is, if you’re running in AHCI mode). The front of each HDD drawer is protected by two flexible plastic arms that should probably be a bit more pliable because we inconveniently snapped one off when we were experimenting with the SideClick EasySwap drawer.
When considering the number of drive cages and fans, as well as the case’s form factor, it’s possible that a deckedout build could get slightly cramped. We recommend using a modular PSU, especially if you plan to install multiple cards and hard drives. The all-black paint job might cause you to overlook some of the significant practical features Thermaltake has incorporated. Some examples are the detachable PSU filter on the A60’s bottom panel, two holes reserved for liquid-cooling tubes, and an external security lock
(held in place with an interior tool-less screw) for the keyboard and mouse. There is also tool-less mounting on the 5.25-inch drive bays. Even though the Armor A60 will accommodate video cards up to 12 inches long, as well as heatsinks up to 180mm high, from the outside it may not impress you or any curious onlooker. You can buy the Armor A60 for its functionality and call it good.
