    Conclusion

    I have always been a fan of white toys.  Heck I have only owned one car that wasn't white (and I fixed that mistake) but somehow a white case still takes some getting used to.  Thermaltake's decision to put out a Snow Edition really shows how far we have come in case aesthetics.  The combination of black and blue accents with the gentle blue lighting is really much cooler in person.  I wonder how well the finish will show dirt…

    Enthusiasts will find plenty of room for components in nearly any combination.  Cooling is some of the best I have seen from an OEM.  You could add more of the smaller fans in the optional locations but you probably won't need them for all but the most demanding setups thanks to those oversize monsters.  Overall this is probably not the best choice for the hardware mod crowd and that's ok as the look of the Snow Edition is the real selling point.

    Aesthetics aside, the Armor Revo Snow Edition is a nice example of Thermaltake's ability to provide a full featured case that stands out from the crowd without getting gaudy.  Working with the chassis was easy and the spacious interior never felt cramped.  Perhaps these full size cases are growing on me but, I like it.
