It has been a while since last looking at a Thermaltake chassis at Phoronix, but today we have our hands on the Spedo Advance Chassis. This full tower chassis is made of SECC steel and has seven 5.25" drive bays, but perhaps what is more unique is its dual 230mm fans, 140mm fan, and three 120mm fans (with room for another two). In addition, the Spedo Advance Chassis has an Advance Thermal Chamber 3, Cable Routing Management 3, an HDD relocation canister, and other features designed to satisfy the needs of the most stringent gamers and computer enthusiasts.

Making up Thermaltake's Spedo series is currently the Spedo and Spedo Advance Chassis. Both cases are quite similar, but the $50 USD increase on the advance model provides the Advance Thermal Chamber 3, Cable Routing Management 3, an adjustable fan bar, 230mm fans (instead of dual 140mm fans), and other minor enhancements. The Spedo Advance Chassis arrived in a thick cardboard package that showed a picture of the ATX enclosure on the front along with a car. Inside the Spedo package was the case, which instead of being wrapped in plastic, was encased within a reusable high-grade bag. The mounting hardware and manual were housed within a cardboard box already inside the chassis.
