Chassis Airflow
Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Thermaltake Core V1 Black Edition Mini-ITX Cube Case with Window, 1x 200mm Fan Included, USB 3.0, w/o PSU is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This case is brilliant Airfow is amazing, front fan even fires air under the motherboard. Really easy to build in, customise and modify.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent case for small builds This is a great case for small gaming rigs, plenty of space for hard drives and a full size GPU. I put together a system with 3.5" 2Tb, 1.5Tb, 2.5" 640Gb, 2.5" 60Gb SSD, Ryzen 2600, 16Gb RAM, GTX 1080Ti. It is reasonably quiet as well.

Date published: 2019-03-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little case. Really like the easy access, with all the panels removable with only two thumb screws. The 200mm fan is brilliant, it keeps my 7700k with 120mmAIO and 1060 cool with hardly a whisper. It gets a bit tight with a non modular Atx psu, so definitely go smaller or modular. My only negative is the hdd mounts. With a 2.5" drive, the mount felt like an after thought and the sata cable had to bend awkwardly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect This was my 1st PC build, here's a quick run down: i5 6600 Thermaltake Frio Silent 12 Gigabyte Phoenix WiFi mini-itx Sapphire RX480+ OC 8GB EVGA SuperNova G2 550W Samsung 750 EVO 250GB 3.5" 2TB Seagate Barracuda I had a limited amount of room and opted for this over the Core V21. I obviously have nothing to compare it to, but from a first time builders perspective, I would say this is an ideal case. I love the fact that you can remove all of the panels. It's so easy with just 2 thumb screws each for the sides, top and bottom. The front panel simply pulls off and clips back into place. It provides fantastic access to all of the components inside the case and helps massively with cable management. Speaking of that, obviously with a mini-itx case, cable management will be a challenge. It all depends on whether you have a modular or non-modular power supply. I have a fully modular unit so only used the cables the system required. There was enough room at the side of the power supply to feed some cables and the rest sat behind the included 200mm fan. It is possible to route a few smaller cables on the underside of the motherboard shelf using a couple of small zip-ties, the main case fan cable being a prime example. I feel that I have tidied the cables the best I can and am happy with the results. With that in mind, here comes my 1st of 3 small issues, the hard drive trays. Again, with it being a mini-itx case, they opted for the 2 trays that sit side-by-side. This meant that I had to use 2 Sata power cables as 1 wouldn't stretch far enough to reach both hard drives. Having these trays sit one above the other would have reduced the amount of cables I had to use and hidden them from view through the clear window. A lot of the inner case, visible through the window is blocked by my HDD. They are however, easy to take out and put back in and there is just enough room behind them to route cables. There may be a way to mount an SSD to the back of the other tray with a HDD already attached, but I have yet to try that. I may as well mention my 2nd issue with the case. The front and bottom panel both come with fan filters, 1 for the power supply fan which is removable and the other being the entire front panel. It has honeycomb mesh and the filter sits behind the mesh. The windowed panel has no openings, but the other 2 have the same honeycomb grille that covers half the panel. Also the back panel has a couple of grilles for 80mm fans which don't have any filters either. It would have been nice to have some sort of dust filter for each but a homemade solution is easily achieved. The clear window is however, very clear and really enhances the look of the internals. Space inside the case for certain components is limited. I was originally going to use a Hyper 212 EVO to cool the CPU but with the height restriction, I went for a Thermaltake Frio Silent 12 which just fits with a few mm of space between the heat sink and top panel. Also, the GPU has a length limit. My RX480 is 240mm in length. There is a cut-out for a longer GPU but I used that and the cut-out for the front I/O to feed the 8-pin power through to free up a bit more room in the main chassis. It was a tight squeeze getting the 480 in there! It's best to got in from the top, feed the power end through the cut-out and then bring the port end down. There's a small panel that hides the 2 mounting screws for the GPU which takes a bit of force to put back after GPU installation. My last issue is with the front I/O. While the 2 USB 3.0 ports are great, a USB 2.0 port for OS installation would have been nice to have. I used a USB motherboard socket adapter for OS installation but I would have preferred to have one on the outside. The Power and Reset buttons do feel a bit cheap and I feel the 2 LEDs could have been more neutral colours, but that's being a bit too picky. Just to end, it's great to be able to use a full size ATX power supply, the front I/O cables are black with the 200mm fan being braided, which helps with colour themed builds. The included 200mm fan is very quite and with the mini-itx format, the motherboard stand-offs are already there, so there's no chance of grounding out the board. The paint finish is great and the rubber feet raise the chassis up a good distance for better air supply to the power supply. Lots of included hardware too which was a nice touch. I think that's about everything. A near perfect case, ideal for a beginner or someone looking for a small chassis to build in. I would definitely buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact but roomy case Case is fantastic if your going to be tinkering around Inside as 4 sides can be removed for great accessible,
Date published: 2015-11-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent ITX case This case is a dream. All the panels come off for easy access, and they are also interchangeable, so if you want the windowed panel on the side, you can do that. Inside, the case is surprisingly roomy, you can fit a lot in here, including a relatively large heat sink and CPU cooler, as well as a small radiator if you wish. Sure, your cable management might be a little messy, but for a small form factor pc it works a treat. Build quality is also excellent, I haven't had any problems whatsoever. For the price, there really isn't a better ITX case on the market in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Footprint Case I was looking for a case for a project to mount some development kit, and noticed this on the Scan site. Small footprint, modular, and good cooling capability. The large fan on the front provides a great throughput without the usual noise from 80mm fans. Power and cable management is in the lower section of the case, whilst the boards and connectivity is in the upper section. Drive management at the side is a great idea, and as all panels are removable this makes it very easy to access exactly where you need to be. Definitely recommend it.

Questions & Answers

Usure about drive bays

I understand there are internal drive bays in this case, but there are none listed as being on the outside. Would there be any way to install something like an optical drive acessible externally, and if not are there any other similar cases with this feature?
Asked by: Aidan
I don't think an internal optical drive is really viable with this case.

will this case take a ASUS STRIX B350-F ATX Motherboard?

Asked by: wysiwug
No, you need an itx sized board (two sizes down from atx).

power supply size

hi does this case take normal sized power supply units or would it require a smaller microatx/itx sized psu's? thanks
Asked by: hardwareguy15
Yep, not sure on the maximum size but standard atx psu's fit fine.
