Thermaltake Armor A90 Black Steel / Plastic Gaming ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case VL98521W2U w/ 850W W0319RU Modular Power Supply
  • Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower
  • 4 x USB2.0, 1 x e-SATA, HD Audio Front Ports
  • 850W (W0319RU) Power Supply
  • 3 External 5.25" Drive Bays
  • 6 (with 1 x 2.5" HDD/SSD) Internal 3.5" Drive Bays


-Spacious (just a hair shorter than CoolerMaster HAF)
-Good colors and design
-Good number of included fans with room for more (on the side panel)
-Ports for liquid cooling setups
-Tool-free HDD and optical bays
-Plenty of slack on the front panel cables for routing
-Magnetic locking front cover... less likely to break than the older plastic tab style
-Stamped motherboard mounting holes for a quick way to see where risers need to be


-750W PSU/850W peak PSU
-Incompatibility with my motherboard. Flipping the switch, the motherboard standby power LED will flash once and shut off. After removing everything that could be removed with no improvement, I checked the main power connectors against a much older board and got a standby LED instantly.
-Most of the power cables have no room for adjustment... routing the SATA power cables using the tie loops on the back wall pulls down on the connector for the top 5.25 drive a little too hard
-The tool-free latches for the 5.25 bays leave no room for adjustment; my DVD burner does not sit flush with the false panels
-It cut me and stole some blood... somewhere... probably the bent corner of the power supply

Other Thoughts:

This case is an excellent buy without the included power supply. Save yourself the trouble and get something that scored higher in benchmarks and stress testing. Would you buy any other 850W(750) power supply for ~$60 comfortably?

Fails to power ASUS P5VD2-MX SE board... powers older ASUS P4P800 just fine. I was looking for an excuse to replace that motherboard anyway; hopefully the new one fares better.
