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

Internal Features (continued):

The below left image shows the inside top of the case. Here you can see all of the well shielded cables leading to the connections on top of the case. The below right image is intended to show just how long all of the cables are, as well as that they are all well labeled. In addition to the top panel multimedia connections, you have the front panel connections, a chassis intrusion switch, and an integrated PC speaker lead.

In the images below we see the back of the case. You have the tool-less expansion slot tabs, a 120mm exhaust fan, the cutout for the power supply, and a rather uniquely situated PC speaker. The white object with the black and red wire coming out of it just to the right of the 120mm fan is the speaker. Quite an odd location for it, and during installation it became just a bit frustrating making this feature work.

The tool-less expansion slots have a plastic tab that slides away from the cards, riding in a track along the back of the case. It worked well to hold over-sized cards, but in general it seemed less than optimal. There was a bit of flex to the tabs that made it hard to get cards seated easily, and locking them in took a bit of concentration to make sure each was in properly.


The images below show the drive cages and other features at the front of the case. The 5.25" bays can all be used with the tool-less drive rails, while the 3.5" drive cage is not tool-less. This lack of tool-less functionality is also found on the original Armor case, but I like the implementation on the Junior better. Each drive must be affixed with screws, but there are rubber grommets in every screw hole of every bay to provide vibration reduction (and noise reduction).

The 3.5" drive cage can easily be removed with just one screw, and when installed it is right behind the 120mm intake fan. Your drives are readily accessible due to the sideways installation, and they should run nice and cool in this location.
