Thermaltake Divider 300 TG ARGB Midsize Case Review

Thoughts on the Divider 300

One of the nicest features is the easily removable side panels. The lower metal triangle is held on with thumbscrews, and the upper window triangle easily slots into some retention clips. The front glass panel is similarly held in place and can be removed by simply pulling on it. My biggest complaint is that working on the power supply, tucked away at the bottom of the case, can be tight at best and damn near unworkable at worst. If you have average-sized hands, it’ll likely be easier to add cables to the PSU before installation–and remove the PSU for adjustments if needed. A nice touch that Thermaltake has taken with this case is the inclusion of filters for all of the locations of the fans that are configured to be intake or likely will be used for intake. This helps keep dust out of the system, reducing required maintenance and helping to extend the lifespan of your expensive (and currently hard-to-find components).

What sets this case aside from the standard Divider 300 TG is it includes an RGB sync board. This allows you to plug a single cable into your compatible motherboard and control the various included RGB fans and other RGB accessories. In this case, I have an RGB Thermaltake PSU installed as well as a DeepCool AIO, and all of the LEDs on the motherboard, fans, and PSU are synced to the same color. 

The looks of the case are striking. The side panel is probably my favorite part, but then again, I’ve liked most of Thermaltake’s case designs. The downside to the striking split side panel is it can hide the GPU. If you have a beautiful, hard-to-find 3090 or 6900XT to display, this case might not be for you. Additionally, the case is available in both black, as reviewed, and white to match the color scheme of your build. While I haven’t seen the white in person, I’ve heard good things, though I find myself partial to black cases. 

Final Thoughts

Ultimately, the Divider 300 is a great case and is easy to work with for first-time builders. The looks, while not for everyone, will serve as an excellent conversation piece. And with lots of ventilation and space for cooling, the case will keep the rest of your system running at top speed. Because of the excellent airflow, I use this case as part of the testbed for testing cooler performance. At $150 MSRP, the case is slightly on the higher side for a mid-tower, but I think the looks and ease of use justify the cost. While I wouldn’t complain if the price were lowered, I would feel comfortable suggesting those on a budget to use this chassis. The space available for expanding later to larger GPUs, more storage, and better cooling help to future proof the build.
