Thermaltake's Armor A30 case ships in a glossy carton, complete with a plastic carry handle on top. The front sports a picture of the Armor A30 alongside a knight, in full battle dress, illuminated by a blue glow. Elsewhere on the carton, the user will find pertinent specification and feature information as well as some information on the cooling scheme. Inside, the A30 is wrapped in a heavy plastic cover sandwiched between a pair of Styrofoam blocks to protect it from damage during transport. The acrylic windows are further protected by plastic sheeting, and the A30 arrived in pristine condition.
The manual and warranty information sheets are shipped outside the case while the rest of the accessories are inside the case. Thermaltake supplies a standoff spacer, speaker, wire ties and a pair of 2.5-inch drive clips along with the installation hardware.
We're going to mix it up a bit for this review by showing the complete disassembly of the case in this section. The A30 chassis is composed of several modules that make for a relatively easy installation while allowing the complete package to be fairly small. We'll discuss most of the interior modules during installation, but a thorough read of the manual is highly recommended before an installation is attempted. First of all let's take a tour around the outside of the A30.
