Thermaltake Level 20HT inspection & teardown



Alaina unboxes and explores the Level 20HT case from Thermaltake. She then tears it down to see just how much PC builders have to work with.

    If you do an epic water build you can expect a lot of views

    Do Apple to Apple comparison not just unboxing shits

    I'm all in for a build out of this case, that thing is awesome. Not a bad price either.

    I love the looks of this case. You could fire up some benchmarks and throw a few taquitos in there for a nourishing meal.

    Very limited rad space for case that is made for WC…two 360s are nothing if you want to have good temps and silent build

    Wow. I never knew Alaina was so strong. She doesn't look intimidating, but she's the PCWorld equivalent of One Punch Man.

    YES! to building in this! As a fellow noob I cheer for you, Alaina! o/

    Just from looking at it, I would think airflow would be poor with the layout of intakes, fans, and exhaust space in that case. I'm interested in seeing if I'm wrong or right. Hopefully they do a longer temperature test of 8+ hours which would represent more closely real world usage for a beast of a cage like that.

    Its not quite as expensive as I was expecting as TT seem to have delusions of grandieur with some cases and price them as thought its a good brand rather than it just being a thermaltake case. So for what you get this one is priced about where a flagship TT case should be instead of doubling the amount and trying to pretend to be a quality make rather than the "ok" budget brand they have always been

    That said though, considering its SUPPOSED to be a water cooling case externally accessible drain and fill holes? Rear intake radiator mounts so they can get air from the rear rather than the bottom, more fan locations, more radiator flexibility, Front IO AT THE BOTTOM, hell, even having some IO on the back as the motherboard IO isnt easily accessible would have been better

    Better layout on the top, it just looks "awkward" and thrown together with two fans like it has, a hinge with a 200mm fan IN THE CENTRE would have been far more preferable, or even the option for 2 along the centre line

    More holes at the back

    And TBH, I wouldnt want the glass going past the motherboard tray, or for it to be blacked out past that point so only the front section is visible

    So its not a bad case, but its far from a well polished up maket case by any stretch of the imagination, in fact it looks more like they bought up a failed 3d printer company and thought "hey, can we turn these into PC cases cheaply?"

    It looks nice. The priorities for me nowadays are space, quietness and the ability to keep out the dust. Only time can tell with the dust. I like the vertical mounting. My Raven 2 has vertical mounting but Raven 4 doesn't.

    Love a cube case, this could be my next one. I'm currently rocking a Corsair Carbide air 540.

    Does the case allow for placement of the GPU in a different location/area via use of an extension cable?

    Other than an abundance of cable management space (the abyss…lol) I can see absolutely no reason anyone would want to build inside this monstrosity. Water cooling? No thanks. Too gimmicky and unnecessary. A 2 reservoir build? That's a hard pass.

    Very versatile case. I like but the price is a bit high for so much plastic.

    As for me, you can do this videos without cases, just Aliana is fine.

    good luck re-assembling it; tear-downs are easy…

    The amount of time it took Alaina to talk about a theoretical build, she could have done a real build inside the case.

    modern designers lack practical common sense .
    over the last 10 years as the clever people retire we left with the idiots who googled their way through their exams
