Get On My Level! – Thermaltake Level 20 GT Build and Review

Back in 2011 Thermaltake released their Level 10 GT case. It was something that not many of us has seen before. It was like a case that had come through an interdimensional portal and arrived on earth.

Thermaltake reached out to us and asked if we wanted to take a look at the follow up to the Level 10 GT, The brand new Level 20 GT. So thats what were going to do.

The Level 20 GT is very easy to build in and it should be because its huge. One thing that I did mention that I am very happy about is the inclusion of the optional PSU shroud. I like being given the option to do whatever I want in a case.

Because of that the cable management is really improved butttt I feel as though there arent enough tie down points on the rear of the motherboard tray. For me personally, I didnt have an issue with it with the build that we did but for other people building in this case it might be an issue.

Both doors are hinged and can be removed by simply lifting them up when building. This makes it really easy to work on. The doors also have a very very strong magnet to keep them closed. The doors can also be locked with the included set of keys as well.

It seems as though Thermaltake was listening when it comes to top panel removal. The top of the Level 20 GT is super easy to remove with a firm tug it pops right off. The bracket underneath can be removed for easy fan and or radiator installation as well. Speaking of radiators.

There is plenty of water cooling support with support for up to 420mm rads in the top and front and plenty of space for your pumps and reservoirs. We didn’t have a lot of time to do a custom loop but we do have a custom loop build coming very very soon in another Thermaltake case. No spoilers.

Another thing I noticed when I test fitted one of our EATX board was that the cable routing grommets are half underneath the board. A standard 24 pin power cable wont be able to pass comfortably through the gap however if you’re using sleeved cables you wont have a problem. If I’m being honest though, who wouldn’t be using sleeved cables for a case of this quality. Adding that that as well. The panels where the hard drive cages can be removed and used for cable routing as well.

The retail version of this case includes everything that youd ever want to build in this case including a PCIe riser cable to mount your GPU in a vertical orientation. Because ours is a review sample it didn’t include the riser cable.

I really enjoyed building in this case. Its not often that I don’t get frustrated building in a case. The design very premium and Thermaltake has definitely leveled up their quality in the last few years. There are a few things they could improve on like including a few more tie down points and moving the cable routing holes slightly, but as with everything though, nothing is ever truly perfect. However the Thermaltake Level 20 GT comes pretty close.

The Thermaltake Level 20 GT releases worldwide on Friday 17th August 2018 but no pricing is available at the time of filming.
