PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
So, Thermaltake lists the A30 as a “gaming cube” and a “portable LAN Party system,” and this characterization certainly sets some parameters for the case. It is rather compact and relatively lightweight while still allowing the user to use full size graphics cards and power supplies. Four included fans, along with the abundance of ventilation areas, promise good cooling and the removable mobo tray promises easy (or easier, shall we say,) installation.
The A30 supports both mATX and mini-ITX boards and USB 3.0. I don't know about the “combat ambience” that appears in the features list, but the blue LED fans should give the A30 some extra visual interest.
As with any small form factor chassis, some concessions have to be made. The A30 limits CPU cooler height to less than 3.5 inches, but graphics cards of up to 13.75 inches can be installed in the case, a nice surprise.
