Description

When I use the title "revisiting the classics" I am referring to two components of my configuration, in particular: 1 - The Case Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition; 2 - Air Cooler Noctua NH-D15.

The platform is new - 1151, Intel of the 7th generation + mobo z270.

When the TT Level 10 GT was released in 2011, I could not afford it because it was expensive, especially in Brazil, where I live. Today, a few years later, I had the opportunity to acquire it and test it. He was wearing all the good cases of the moment and ... Honestly? I'm tired! All have the same proposal - Large window / Tempered glass; SSD's exposed on PSU Cover; Front without external bays; Bla, bla, bla ... I decided to revisit the classics and I'm enjoying it!

About the Noctua NH-D15, there's nothing to talk about. Simply the best air cooler and I know it is totally exaggerated for my i5, which does not reach high temprakes, even with a reasonable overclock.

I'm enjoying this moment - with lots of space, efficient airflow and nostalgic feeling of taking advantage of the best of hardware a few years ago.

Because the new one is not always the best! Old but Gold!

ahh man that case! i loved it a while ago but now i like minimalistic more so my s340 elite is the best for me! 1+ for this build tho!

Well, I confess I'm in a minimalist phase too. I think this is kind of fashionable, just see that it is the focus of the current industry. Anyway, it's interesting. On the other hand, most minimalist cases do not offer such interesting features as a case like this. And to continue being minimalist, I would have to give up the great air coolers I use and of which I'm a fan, so it's strange to have, for example, an S340 Elite with a Noctua D15. I find it disproportionate.

I do not know until when I'm going to keep the case, because I'm constantly trying new things (this is my disease, damn ...)

For now, I'm loving this futuristic look and all the features it has offered.

Thanks for the interaction, my friend - Hugs!

:D wow thats a really nice long comment! i normally only get "cool thx"! i think ill keep my pc for a longer time since im not that much a sucker for high settings and many fps (altough i have a 1080ti xD) so i think ill be able to play the games i want for at least 5-7 years

People are monosyllabic nowadays. They do not want to dialogue, just get likes to inflate their egos. You're right about spending good years with the same setup. I change a lot, but I do self-criticism: there is simply no need for it. The industry survives by creating these "traps" for us, who love to buy what is new. 5 years is a good average time to stay with an intermediate setting; If it's something high end, you can extend it ... hehehe!

Thanks for watching. It's an XFX HD6850, which served me very well until 2012. I think it's beautiful and today it leaves the shelf more beautiful ... lol

Oh, man, I read your wrong question. I understood you asking what it was, but you asked what had happened to her. LOL

I'm sorry for that! It stopped working recently on a secondary PC in my house. I did not want to seek repair and I decided to adopt it as a shelf ornament.

I have the Black version of this case. It's features are second to none but it wastes a lot of space. Still, I dont regret buying it in 2014, but future revisions will probably exclude this case.

That case reminds me of Star Wars for some reason...

And I know you're going to get this a lot but...

Why not Ryzen?

The case is designed by BMW,

Ryzen boiiis, probably got the rig before ryzen was released.

That's right - this case was the result of a partnership between TT and BMW, which resulted in a great publicity of it in 2011, the date of its launch. At the time, I drooled to see the photos, but the product was quite expensive. Today, late and in the age of new trends (how fast is the world, is not it?), I am satisfying an old desire.

Hugs!

When I changed the platform, I thought of AM4, but I use several air coolers that do not have support and it would take a while to get all the installation kits from the manufacturers. I decided to go from 1151 to not waste time and also because the machine is geared only for games, general entertainment and home office jobs, so 4 cores is enough for now.

About the appearance of the case - my wife said the same thing about remembering Star Wars in some way. I think the square shapes and the colors in black and white are part of the Star Wars identity and in a way that is already in our minds.

Thanks for the feedback! Thank you!

Many thanks for that comment. I also really liked the way this case got on the table. I thought it matched the environment a lot, even if you did not think of it. I spend some time looking good ... Strong hug!
