I really love cars. Sadly, I don't have the money to get the kind of car I've always wanted. Currently, I drive an '03 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. I'm not a Fast and Furious fan, if that's what you're thinking. I actually got into cars well before that lame movie ever came out. However, my favorite car has always been the Nissan Skyline GT-R. The Skyline has always been the iconic car of the street modder. Previously, to get one to America required more fees than the car was worth, with shipping and safety conversion. Nissan has recently released their American GT-R, however even the baseline version of that car runs for about $90k. Way too rich for my britches. Plus, the exterior looks like a cross between the rear of the Skyline and the front of their 350Z. It veers away from the traditional Skyline look that people have come to love.
Cars are one of those things that have engrained themselves into our society. Everyone has their taste and preferences. For instance, I would never purchase a Mustang or Corvette. I've been in them, and driven them, and just never liked them, but I have plenty of friends that would kill for one. I prefer imports to American. Cars have also pushed their influence into our everyday life. Branded materials are everywhere and people love it. It's no different in the computer industry. We have games like F1 and Need for Speed, as well as products like the Acer Ferrari, Asus Lamborghini, or the Thrustmaster Enzo. In 2009, Thermaltake paired up with BMW Group DesignworksUSA and designed the Level 10. It was an artistic hit and won many awards, however, the price tag and the features kept it out of reach for many regular high end users.
Thermaltake has taken a dip into a car modification with the Level 10 GT Full Tower Computer Case. The Level 10 GT takes its roots from the original Level 10 and adds a ton of flair and features that a computer enthusiast would need and love. The Level 10 GT meets ventilation, space, and aesthetic needs of the more advanced hardware configurations. Key features include the EasySwap PitStop 5 HDD Bays which allows easy access and handling of all HDDs in the system. VGA TripleMax leaves room for any tri-GPU configuration, up to 37cm in length. Quadfan Power Cool places four fans in all of the right locations for optimal cooling. CableClear Cable Management is designed to keep the interior clean for easy access and optimal airflow. Smart-Lock Security System locks the system components down for complete security. HDD bays are locked in place and side panel is locked shut. USB 3.0 FrontSpeed adds two USB 3.0 ports to the front of the case for easy access. Triple Colorshift allows for 3 different color settings and 2 settings that will shift and rotate the color. Last is the liquid cooling capabilities. The top exhaust fan can be removed to fit any high performance liquid cooling system.
