PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The A60 shares a lot of the attributes of the A90, with the addition of USB 3.0 support and the HDD drive cage has been rotated 90 degrees to support its “SideClick” 3.5-inch SATA drive hot-swap feature. The A60 lacks a front door feature and has three less USB 2.0 ports. Otherwise, the cases are virtually identical, having the same cooling fan arrangement with only minor differences in the optional fan placements.
The colorful retail carton gives potential customers a look at the unique styling of the A60, and Thermaltake prominently displays the phrase, “Created for Combat” on the front. This goes along with the MMORPG theme of the A90 chassis and suggests the need to “armor up” before going into battle. While the A60, of course, isn't armor plated, it does appear to have that look about it.
Fortunately, the A60 has its own armor in the form of a plastic wrap, a couple of Styrofoam blocks and a heavy cardboard carton as the carton sustained some damage in transit. Needless to say, it arrived unscathed and ready for battle...or whatever.
