Thermaltake Core V1 Mini-ITX Case Review

Thermaltake is a brand name in the computer case industry, we have been reviewing their cases for years. Over the past few years they really have been focusing on mid and full tower cases. It has been quite a while since they released a really great small form factor case for LANs and gaming, the last one I remember was the LANBOX which came out in 2006. Well Thermaltake is back with a small form factor case that is perfect for LANs or just building a smaller system. The case is the Core V1 and it has room inside for a Mini-ITX motherboard, graphics cards as long as 285 mm, CPU coolers as tall as 140 mm, full size ATX power supplies, four hard drives and even watercooling! Let’s take a look!

Special thanks to Thermaltake for providing us with the Core V1 to review!

Packaging
The Core V1 comes in a pretty plain box with an image of the case on the front. Also the motto of the case is “Your Build. Our Core”.

The back of the box shows an exploded view of the case with all of the removable parts.

The specifications list that you see above is listed on one side of the case.

Opening the box up we can see that the case is nicely protected by two large pieces of styrofoam and a plastic bag.

    Hows the cooling inside this sleek looking customizable case?

    I think of switching from my Fractual Design Arc 2 Mini Tower Case and AsRock Z97M Anniversary MotherBoard (mATX) and ‘HYPER EVO 212 CPU Cooler’ to this one (iTX) and ‘ASUS Z97 PLUS-I’ best/simular fan cooler (but in a smaller profile but yeah, considering I wont be overclocking it. despite how easy it is)

    Are the fans quiet? due to the bigger fans?
