Thank you 3dgameman I saw your video #1171 - Thermaltake Armor A60 Case Video Review and I got it but you failed to mention how it doesn't have any good cable management. It hides the usb 3.0 but that's about it. By the way what size screws do I need to install new 120mm fans ? the case didn't have any for the alt fan installs. I don't know where any of the case leads go to in my motherboard, I bought an hp from Walmart and just wanted a kickass case. but now I don't have my front panel working for me. You can help, my motherboard is hp asus narra 2 my email is sillytesting@yahoo.com. Thank you 3dgameman it would be kickass if you could explain the best evga 460 from the lot of versions there are. I have become a PC fan because of you. And this would mean so much for me and it would mean I would become a better customer to many PC companies.

I really don't get the USB 3.0 wire.... Where does it connect to and from.
I would say that it would connect to the motherboard.
But am I totally wrong? :S

Hmmm why too lazy to drill holes? they could add another 200mm fan for that exhaust on top, maybe they're thinking people would buy cooler master fans since its mostly the only available 200m fan on most stores? and right that blue cable hanging out is ugly... It's a decent case though for its price. I bet Rodney was like meh another thermaltake casing, do I really have to do this shit.... jk

Nice case Rodney, well thought out despite the USB3 cable hanging out the back!

Having that blue cable hanging out the back of the case looks pretty bad

It plugs into the back of the motherboards IO, I don't believe there is a standard for the plug on the motherboard yet so they do this until there is.

it comes from the port at the front of the case, routed behind the motherboard tray comes out through the hole, and plugs into the pack panel of your motherboard

The case as such is pretty nice but there are two things which I personaly don't like or understand: I don't get why Thermaltake does not give you the option to install a second 200mm fan at the top but rather a 120mm. A 120mm fan is better than nothing but why not another 200mm fan? The thing that I don't like is how the front USB 3 port is connected to the motherbard. I just not look really good when a blue cable comes ut of your case just to get plugged in into the motherboard. I know, it's an older idea and there is already a incase connection out which looks quite simmilar to the in-case USB 2 connector but I still don't like that cable on the outside of that case. Is there at least an easy way to remove that cable withoutb cuting it off?
The whole on the left side panel is a nice idea but the window is pretty small...

Is there an included USB2 cable to replace the front USB3 port by a USB2 port? (like the HAF-X)

At 3:15 there stands Mico ATX instead of Micro ATX. Eye for details lol.

This makes for one very long video, and that's why I break it into parts.
