Features and Specifications
I just remembered that the case this Armor Revo is up against had a robot-mech-thing on it. I hope the knight’s sword has magical powers or something.
I didn’t make it very long being serious did i? Oh well, here are the features anyway, straight from Thermaltakeusa.com:

I’m forced to admit that I already cracked the box open, so let me tell you this: The “Plug’n’play” side panel fan is the best side panel fan setup I have ever seen. There are no disclaimers or exceptions to this statement.

Cable ties and such must not count as accessories. At 25 pounds this isn’t an especially light case, though it was far less than some I’ve reviewed. It doesn’t have a carrying handle like the Seiran does, but once loaded with parts it’d be too heavy for most people to carry with one hand anyway.
This case comes with a lot of big fans. It’s a very nice change from the more normal setup where the case supports a lot of fans and ships with two. Thank you, Thermaltake!
Onward to actually looking at this thing!
