Thermaltake Level 10 Case


The enthusiast community has done some amazing things with computer cases, from the obligatory brass-studded steampunk cases to less conventional offerings, but none reach quite the level of sophistication or design sensibility as Thermaltake’s new Level 10 case, unveiled at CeBIT this year.

Like a PC broken apart and boxed up, part-by-part, in metal, the Level 10 case leaves behind the dressed-up-box concept used in most cases today and moves toward a more revealing, intricate aesthetic. The motherboard, drive bays and even power supply all have their own enclosures, mounted like specimens on a sturdy slab that serves as the backbone of the case.

The actual case design was done at DesignworksUSA, an arm of BMW Group best known for its work on a handful of company’s cars, including the Z4 and 3 Series.

Thermaltake hasn’t released much in the way of details for the case, aside from its decidedly Spartan display at CeBIT and a handful of pictures released online. The company is calling it a “10th anniversary limited edition concept chassis,” but hasn’t yet announced whether it will make it to a commercial version.

Reportedly, word of its commercial release will take place on the company’s home turf of Taiwan at Computex 2009, later this year. More details and photos can be found under the “Newsflash” section of Thermaltake’s CeBIT 2009 page.
