Thermaltake Armor+ VH6000BWS Full Tower Chassis
July 22, 2008

Conclusion:

The Thermaltake Armor+ VH6000BWS full tower chassis will not frustrate, and will not disappoint. There are plenty of tool-less features included to simplify the installation process, and the only components that required a screwdriver were the motherboard and power supply.

The design of the case is slick and attractive, but doesn't go over the top. The simple external styling is complemented by a spacious, well laid out interior that will show through the large side panel window when fully assembled.

The three fans included with the case provide more than sufficient cooling, and if you find it necessary to enhance the cooling there are plenty of other locations where you can mount your own fans. On top of that, Thermaltake has included provisions to make upgrading to a liquid cooling system as easy as possible.


The few negative issues I encountered were somewhat trivial, but worth noting. The cable for the front panel audio connection wound up being too short to use, and I found that I had to work slowly and deliberately when installing SATA drives, as there isn't much room for cables behind the drive cage. On top of that, I would caution potential buyers to only consider this case if you plan on placing it on the floor, as it is probably just too big to be placed on top of most desks.

A quick search of the Internet shows that while this case is not cheap, it really is rather reasonably priced for all that it offers. The best deal has it at a little under $200 (US), while stores you may be more familiar with have it for just over $200 (like $204.99 at Newegg.com).

The bottom line is that this case is well made, attractive, spacious, and easy to use. With all of the positives, and only a few trivial negatives, the Thermaltake Armor+ VH6000BWS full tower chassis earns the Bigbruin.com "Highly Recommended" award.

Highly Recommended

Pros:

Simple, yet attractive design
Spacious interior
Plenty of hard drive installation locations
Plenty of tool-less features
Decent out of the box cooling thanks to the three high quality fans included
