Overall the Armor A60 is a pretty similar case with the A90 we saw earlier. Anyway all the changes between these two models are for the better and especially the sideways hot swap bay is a nice touch. The other differences include sideways HDD bays...

It’s not often that one finds themselves hunting for a new computer chassis to setup the innards of their machine, more than any other component, this is the one that we replace/upgrade the least. Most people will spend a lot less time researching...

The Thermaltake Armor A60 case left me with mixed feelings. On one hand it has high-end features such as USB 3.0 support, an EasySwap HDD design, easy installation, can support up to ten 3.5” drives, plus support for large high-end graphics cards....

The Armor A60 mid-tower case has the quality and features that people expect from Thermaltake. The interior is roomy and will fit almost all modern video cards, with the exceptions being maybe some of the newer ATI cards. The inclusion of USB 3.0,...

Let's sum up this brief article with some thoughts on the Thermaltake Armor A60 case. First of all, the case has been carefully designed both internally and externally, with the the paint work to be first class belying the budget pricing. There are...

Thermaltake has an extremely solid case in the Armor A60. The feature rich case is at a perfect pricing point (MSRP $89.99). The addition of the dust filters was a great thing to see in the case as more and more people start to care about the mess...

ThermalTake have once again created a desirable case – the Armor A60 provides good potential for airflow, plenty of room for HDDs and keeps a very good looking, angular style about it. However, it’s a shame to see that ThermalTake have...

While the Thermaltake A60 manages to impress with the exterior look and well implemented design, it does seem to have a long list of drawbacks. Thermaltake has managed to port the cool and edgy design of the A90 to the A60, but has ignored a lot of...

When looking for an inexpensive case many people tend to overlook the important things like construction and focus on features like which one comes with the most fans or has the shiniest paintjob. While many of these cases will do a decent job you...

With support for up to 7 fans, you can be sure the components in your case are kept cool. Overall, the performance of this case is great. The two blue LED fans as well as the armor-like design makes this case's appearance a unique one - however it...

The Thermaltake Armor A60 is a high class case in a low class price range. It has all the features of a much more expensive case but without the cost. I just wish it had more room to hide the darn wires....

Much like the Thermaltake Armor A90 case that we reviewed a few weeks back (our full review can be found here), the Thermaltake Armor A60 case also fared very well in our testing. The Thermaltake A60 case is aimed at the "Enthusiast on a budget" and...

The Thermaltake Armor A60 ends up creating quite a problem for us when it comes to recommendations. Strictly speaking, although we didn't like the styling of it, the Armor A60 isn't a bad case. It just isn't as good as the Armor A90 by a...

Back in the days, I remember being convinced to join the APH Networks community for a contest as it could win me some great prizes. In retrospect, at that time I was merely thinking, "I might win something... hopefully" and still, I doubted myself...

The Thermaltake ARMOR A60 is an interesting case. They are clearly trying to be innovative and push new features out to the market in a stylish case. There are some things that just really puzzled me about the case though. The mix of the newer...

Pricing.The Armor A60 is competitively priced in the U.K. £75.59 and U.S.at ($89.99) about the same as the CM 690 II Advanced and slightly more than the Lancool K58.Overview.The A60 was certainly impressive, it performed well and its features...

The Armor A60, like the A90 chassis from Thermaltake proves itself to be a bit of a mixed bag, but most of the bag was good. There is room for lots of hardware in the A60, with three big bays and six HDD mounts be they 3.5- or 2.5-inch. The...

This summer we have seen a real surge in new cases, Thermaltake have been amongst the brands to bring to us the Armor series. The smallest of the Armor variety is the A60. Some may like its looks, some may hate it. Personally I'm right down the...

The Thermaltake Armor A60 Gaming Mid Tower Chassis offers a lot of new features that we haven’t seen on any other cases. This is the first case that I’ve had to review that has USB 3.0 and/or a hot swappable drive. While I’m sure not a...

Even though the new Thermaltake Armor A60 is based on the Armor A90, it has a set of features that makes it better than its predecessor. In fact, this is the first time that we see a product with a “lower” model number being better than a...
