Ripped right from the future is a new Micro ATX case revealed by Thermaltake. The open-chassis case, dubbed the AH T200, offers a unique design with all of the space needed to build a powerhouse for AAA gaming. The sexy new build was first seen on the Thermaltake Global YouTube channel in a sizzle reel that put the spotlight on the cybernetic design.
The video went into great detail on the case’s many features. Inspired by the look of a helicopter cockpit, the AH T200 features an open frame that’s made to fit up to four 120mm or 140mm fans, installed at the top or front. With the airy construction, players won’t have to worry about overheating with this Micro ATX case.
Though the smaller size may limit certain components and only allows for horizontal GPU mounting, it’s built for a triple-slot GPU. This will give plenty of room for the latest in graphic cards so players can still enjoy the stunning visuals of the hottest AAA releases.
According to the sizzle reel, the AH T200 is approximately 17.5” tall, 11” wide, and 21.7” deep. It’s built with 3mm thick tempered glass panels, to give that appearance of a helicopter cockpit, and additional 4mm thick removable side panels. The ATX is built to hold:
- 3 x 2.5” SSD or 2 x 3.5” HDD
- Additional 2 x 2.5” SSD (Hidden)
- 240 or 280mm radiator
- 320mm GPU
- 180mm power supply
- 150mm CPU cooler
The case is also outfitted with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and an additional 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port. The open design of the Micro ATX will allow users to maximize their RGB lighting for a bright and attractive display. Unfortunately, the smaller ATX case will require top-notch cable management. Any misconfiguration will leave a mess of wires, visible through the clear tempered panels and ample open space.
The AHT T200 retails for $150 through the Thermaltake store. It’s available in all black or a crisp white with black accents. Its counter, the T600, is $100 more, which may be worth it for players that need the extra space for components. The larger T600 is built with two 5mm glass panels and measures 27.7” x 13.3” x 30”. It features eight expansion slots; 140 and 120mm fan support on the front, top, and right panels; 480, 260, 240, or 120mm radiator support; and space for two 3.5” or three 2.5” hard drives.
Since the exterior design is practically the same, which chassis players use will depend entirely on what components they want in their custom-built PC. Those that can sacrifice a little space will want to save the $100 and gain more desk space with the new AH T200 Micro ATX chassis.
