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 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont be fooled by the price. This thing is honestly as good or even better than some of the £100+ mini-ITX cases I've seen. Been using it for my rig for about a month now and I couldnt be happier. The case is very modular. Plenty of hard drive space. All panels removable so cable management cannot be easier even for an ITX build. Theres a dust filter on the PSU side and on the front also. Overall, I've had no issues with it. Would definitely recommend for anyone considering building ITX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ITX Case for £40 Let me start by telling you what i was buying this case for, i've been daily driving a huge ATX case for the past 6 years now. I decided i wanted to start doing LAN parties and just be able to take my PC around more freely, so i bought this ITX case. Pros: -Very cheap compared to similar solutions -Very easy to build in -Full ATX PSU support (180mm) -Capable of containing 2x3.5 inch drives & 2x2.5 inch drives -Great Airflow -Capable of supporting a 140mm CPU Cooler (More than competing solutions) -Capable of supporting a 285mm GPU -200mm filtered fan with support for 2x80mm fans (the 80mm fans required a fan hub/splitter as most ITX boards don't have enough fan headers, you can pick up the fans and the hub/splitter for about £10) -Side panels are interchangeable -Decent sections to hide cables Meh: -Build quality is average -Acrylic side panel (There is a tempered glass kit on Thermltake's website) -A bit heavy/big for an ITX case, less portable than alternatives however this is what you get with full size ATX PSUs and 140mm of cooler support. Cons: -Plastic thumb screws which are easy to lose when installing the HDD mount and are finicky to screw in -HDD mount can be a bit finicky especially when you have a HDD and SSD installed on the same mount -Front panel I/O feel pretty cheap (expected for the price) -My unit came with a dead 200mm fan however thermaltake shipped me a new fan in about 3 days -Cable management by the radiator cutout is quite hard as you have very little space to hide the cables. My PSU is 150mm and it was a very tight fit, if you care about cable management try to use a PSU no bigger than 155mm System: The specs of the system i built in this case are as followed, although it should be capable of a much more powerful system CPU : R5 1600X @ 3.9GHZ CPU Cooler : Hyper TX3 Evo GPU : GTX 1660 Super Gigabyte OC RAM : Vengeance LPX 8GB 3000mhz x 2 Motherboard : Asrock B450 Aorus Pro WiFi PSU : Corsair TX650M Storage : 128gb Corsair MP300, WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM, WD Blue 3TB 5400RPM & Kingston A400 128gb SSD (No longer installed, used for testing if you could mount 3.5 and 2.5). Fans : 200mm Thermaltake fan, 2x80mm Arctic F8. Alternatives: -Coolermaster elite 130 - £41.99 @ 13/04/2020 -AVP Hyperion - £37.50 @ 13/04/2020 -SilverStone SST-SG13B - £39.95 @ 13/04/2020 Conclusion: Overall the thermaltake core v1 is a great budget ITX case if you want to use an ATX PSU and have support for up to 140mm CPU coolers, mostly because there really isn't any other alternatives at this price point except the AVP Hyperion. I would recommend staying away from the AVP Hyperion at any cost, i've built a PC or two in these cases and there build quality and features is severely lacking. If you don't care about cooling that much and you just going to use a stock cooler or something along those lines then the SilverStone & CoolerMaster alternatives seem like great deals.

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.

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.

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
Hey, this case supports ATX power supplies of all sizes.

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
Hello, There is no where to mount a 5.25 inch drive, such as an optical disk, this tends to not be included in newer cases as it is viewed as an obsolete technology, which it is as newer tech has supplanted it. I do understand you view however as i do still like having a dvd drive for the occasional old game or cheap dvd's it's nice to have, there are two options at this point in time, you could buy an external dvd drive or buy a different case with a 5.25 inch slot, like the AVP Hyperion (Which i would avoid like the plague as they have crap build quality) or the Cooler Master elite 130 however this does limit your cooler to a low profile one, if i were you i would go with this case and an external dvd drive so you get better thermals.

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

Asked by: wysiwug
This is a Mini-ITX form factor case. It will NOT support mATX or ATX motherboards, ONLY Mini-ITX.
