The Thermaltake Armor A90 turned out to be a very impressive case. The overall look, with the angled lines and blue LED fans, won us over. The wire management was new to us, with the solution being to the side of the HDD bay, instead of behind the...

With the Armor A90, Thermaltake took a step away from the styling of past Armor series cases and if you ask me it’s a winner. The exterior use of triangular shapes helps liven things up without being too flashy. Inside the A90 is painted all in...

In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the Thermaltake Armor A90 a rating out of 10, a...

The Thermaltake Armor A90 is a lot more attractive in person than the promotional photos show. This isn't the first time I have seen cases which aren't very photogenic but are very striking once you see them in person. Understandably however,...

The overall design is not overwhelming but it is also not a “cookie cutter” that can suit anyone. It will be up to individual’s own judgment. The consistent coloring from inside and out gives it extra professional look and I believe in...

When I first pulled the A90 out of the box, I was somewhat underwhelmed by the simple looking design and even more underwhelmed by the wire management scheme chosen. While I can look past a somewhat plain design, I am a freak about wiring as a poor...

The Armor A90 is a tribute to the hardcore gamer with the elite battle sense to push forward when others quit. A champion requires maximum performance from their system at all times. And, even as temperatures rise both in battle and within your...

For $99, this mid-tower has a lot to offer; an aggressive and stylish design, room for more fans, and it's relatively spacious. It was pretty nice to see that Thermaltake included an eSATA port, which will probably make a cheap alternative to a...

If you think us computer/electronic reviewers are some kind of epic technogeeks with out-of-this-world powers composed of a completely different set of DNA than the general consumer, then you are only viewing a small part of a big picture. Yes, we do...

The Armor A90 has many features that would entice any consumer. One of the case's key features is its unique exterior that looks like layers of armor on futuristic military equipment. The embossed and beveled side panels and side window also make it...

If you're going to use a bunch of Thermaltake parts to build your system, it makes sense to start with a Thermaltake case. It's is a well-respected name among the high-performance PC crowd and its fans, PSUs and cooling equipment has earned it...

Video Review: If you're in the market for an affordable mid-tower case that has cool styling and great build quality, the Thermaltake Armor A90 Case might just be what you are looking for. This case has lots of drive bays, plenty of fans, a hole on...

Thermaltake as again managed to impress me with its cases. The Armor A90 is packed full of features that are found only on cases costing $50 to $100 more. This scores it big with me. The all black finish is a trend that I really like and Thermaltake...

Sometimes a case has to be more than just functional. If it’s going to be something your friends and family see, it has to look nice as well. Thermaltake recently sent us the Armor A90 and it seems poised to fill both requirements. Specs Case...

The Thermaltake Armor A90 makes one thing clear from the very beginning. The case is geared toward the gamer with a great looking design. The all black interior, bottom mounted PSU bay and anti-theft system all point towards that as well. Sure, the...

Cases are one of the most important pieces of hardware for two reasons. One is because it's what people will see when they look at your computer, and two because it keeps your computer isolated from the environment. My first impression of the...

As I mentioned in the beginning, I knew I would spend some time comparing the Armor A90 to Thermaltake's V9 mid tower. In my humble opinion, as far as for function, Thermaltake has improved upon all of the little things that I eventually found I...

We really liked the attention to detail on the A90, and the many options for fan configurations. The finish on the case is excellent both inside and out. Made from SECC steel the side panels feel slightly flimsy but the stamped areas do stiffen it up...

Well, the new Armor A90 chassis from Thermaltake proved to be a bit of a mixed bag, but most of the bag was good. There is room for lots of hardware in the A90, with three big bays and six HDD mounts including a placement for a 2.5-inch drive. It is...
