Thermaltake Spedo Advance Chassis

Packaging and Contents

Packaging and Contents
The Thermaltake Spedo Advance chassis' packaging is very pleasant and eye-catching, and a hint of what we can expect later on. On the front of the packaging is an image of the Spedo chassis itself with a blurred image of a sportscar behind it. On the rear of the packaging, Thermaltake have included images and text explaining the main features of the Thermaltake Spedo Advance.

On the left and right hand sides of the box Thermaltake has some smaller images of the Spedo chassis with a green dot denoting that this is indeed the Spedo Advanced package. The box also has small carry handles which makes moving the  package around a lot easier than using the walls of the box itself.

Removing the outer box and we are greeted by the Thermaltake Spedo Advance chassis housed in a cloth bag to prevent scratches, and the chassis is further protected by large pieces of Styrofoam on the top and bottom that are moulded to fit the case. Included in the bottom of the box was the Spedo manual and a Thermaltake warranty card.

The accessories box was actually included inside the Thermaltake Spedo Advance chassis, but I have removed it so that you can see the accessories that Thermaltake include in it. Included in the accessories box are:
* 4 x 3.5" - 5.25" adaptor plates
* 1 x Floppy Disk Drive bezel
* 1 x 5.25" FDD adaptor
* 120mm fan
* 24-pin EATX extender cable
* EPS 12v extender cable
* Motherboard stand-off's and various screws.

Could the Spedo Advance chassis be the best case that Thermaltake has produced?

Check out the review to see what we think of itQuote

Nice review guys. Very thorough.

However the case leaves a bit to be desired by the look of it. The Thermal areas thing clearly doesn't work and 50 something decibels is really obnoxiously loud. The looks are fairly subjective so I won't comment, aside from saying it has quite a nice industrial look (from the pics...maybe not in the flesh).

I have concerns over the screwless expansion card connectors and the use of plastic. Another thing I dislike is the placement of the PSU and the use of louvres not of mesh.

I like the idea of the plastic squares on the back of the mobo, but at the end day it is only wire you are covering up. I also notice they've changed the thumbscrews on the back of the case...the worst feature of the Xaser VI

Speaking from experience with Thermaltake cases, they are not as bad as they used to be and while they lack the finish of Lian li, they aren't as bad as everyone says. Still wouldn't buy this one though.Quote

the xaser and the armor+ are still the best made thermaltake cases out there to my opinion. and these 2 are in par with cooler master cases to, wich is good. but it is true that lian li is still be best branch for cases, becouse of the finishes they have on their cases, but it also comes with a big price ofcource.Quote
