Thermaltake Armor Junior Mid-Tower ATX Case
May 24, 2006

External Features (continued):

For those familiar with Thermaltake products, looking at the front is where you will immediately recognize this as an Armor series case. The two metal wings/flaps/shields are an element found on the original Armor case that just had to be echoed on the Junior. They really serve no functional purpose, but give a sleek but rugged appearance to the front of the chassis. I originally didn't like them on the full size Armor, but they have grown on me over time.

The shields on either side hinge open to allow access to optical drives or anything else you need to get at. I would prefer to have a magnetic catch or some other means of holding them shut, but leaving them free swinging allows your optical drives to push them open if they eject while the shields are 'closed'.

The front bezel is predominantly plastic, but the shields are Aluminum, as are many of the inserts. The front features five 5.25" drive bays up top, one at the very bottom, and one parallel to the window where you might install the Western Digital Raptor X drive. There is also one typical 3.5" drive bay, as well as a second one created in a 5.25" insert designed to also function as the power and reset button location. And of course, you can't forget the 120mm fan that you see behind the silver mesh towards the bottom of the front panel.


The top of the Armor Junior isn't nearly as cool looking as the original Armor's, due to the lack of cooling vents that the original sported. But, both versions provide a spring loaded door that conceals a pair of USB connectors, a Firewire port, headphone jack, and microphone jack.

The back of the case isn't all that exciting, but it does feature a 120mm fan done up in the traditional Thermaltake colors of black and orange. The back of the case can be removed with just a few screws, but it isn't for a removable motherboard tray; it is to allow the case to be converted to BTX.

The bottom of the case features an array of perforations in the Aluminum for ventilation, but mroe interesting may be the feet. The four feet can rotate and lock into a variety of positions, and when fully extended outward should provide extra stability.
