Thermaltake Armor A30 mATX Case Review

I myself travel a good bit for LAN parties, with them ether being at a friend’s house or a larger LAN event like Pittco events right here in Pittsburgh. Traveling and carrying around a big case can sometimes be a pain. Then again there are not very many mATX cases that will suit the needs of gamers and fit their larger graphics cards and heatsinks. But Thermaltake was nice enough to send us over their Armor A30 case for us to take a look at. Let’s see if this case will suit my needs and the need of other gamers out there.

Special thanks to Thermaltake for providing us with the Armor A30 mATX Case to review.
