PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
The specs don't stray a whole lot from other mid-tower cases on the market; however the 230 mm side intake fan is one feature that sets the Armor apart. It spins at a slow 800 RPMs and provides extra cooling to internal components. Along with that, there are a few other slight differences in the design that make installing hardware a bit different, but still very easy.
Thermaltake is usually pretty meticulous with their packaging, and that still rings true with the Armor MX. Two foam blocks keep the case sturdy during shipping and cloth-like covering protects it from any scratches.
Accessories include a generous supply of screws and motherboard standoffs, various types of wire ties, cleaning cloth, and a fairly thorough instruction manual with photos to aid with the setup process. I found the cleaning cloth to come in handy because as we'll see as we go through the review, parts of this case will really show those fingerprints.
