The dimensions of the case are 24x9.1xc21.1 inches, making it a Full-Tower ATX case in name. One thing that should be kept in mind is that Thermaltake offers a 3-year warranty with this product.

ATC3 stands for Advanced Thermal Chamber #3. The ATC 3 provides proper air circulation throughout the case but blocks the lower half of the case once you take off the side panel. There's a nifty little accessories box on the bottom half of the ATC 3. Both components can be removed when you need to install a motherboard or power supply into the case.

Cable management is always important for the high-end computer segment. After all, without proper cable management the case will look like a big mess of cables. Thermaltake takes the cable management a step further than most by having three black covers on the back side of the case to cover the wires coming out of the front side of the case.

One of the big features of the case is the ability to run up to 8 fans on the case. This is split into one Front 140mm fan, two Rear 120mm Turbofans, a Top 230mm fan, optional CPU and bottom 120mm fans, a 120mm Fanbar fan, and a 230mm side TurboFan. This is enough cooling to keep any system cool even with the hottest components. Thermaltake calls this Fan8.
