Thermaltake The Tower 100 Racing Green Case Review

Final Thoughts

While my computer serves a purpose, it is also something that I like to show off. Many mini-ITX cases are so small and compact you really don’t get to see the hardware inside. Thermaltake is changing all of that with The Tower 100. Based off the larger Tower 900, this case has a larger footprint than other mini-ITX cases, but is still much smaller than a traditional mid tower. The best thing is that it allows you to show off your build! There are three glass panels on this case and if you have RGB components or want to add lights to this case it is going to look amazing!

When it comes to mini-ITX cases space is always an issue, but I think The Tower 100 does a great job supporting larger hardware. You have room for graphics cards as long as 330 mm, full-size power supplies up to 180 mm, and even CPU coolers up to 190 mm! Also with the ability to have up to four hard drives you can really build a very impressive system!

I do have to say if there is one thing lacking it would be cooling support. The case comes with two fans (which are not the best), one at the top of the case, and another on the back panel. The case only supports 120 mm all-in-one coolers too, it would have been nice to get support for at least a 240 mm radiator given the size of the case. Running Thermaltake’s own TH120 ARGB Sync AiO the temperatures in the case were not all that bad at all.

If there was one thing I would change about this case is how the power supply is positioned. It goes in from the back of the case with cables facing forward and for most of them you have to bend them back around to go through the back of the case and then to your motherboard or other components. It just made running cables a little more tedious.

I really like that Thermaltake has released non-traditional colors of this case. All we see are black or white cases, but it is not often you see metallic gold, racing green, or turquoise! The racing green color is pretty awesome and Thermaltake has even released TOUGHRAM RGB modules with heatspreaders to match the unique colors of this case!

Right now you can pick this case up at our favorite online retailer for $119.99, which I feel is a pretty fair price. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Thermaltake The Tower 100 Racing Green Case a 9 out of 10 score!
