The Core X5, the new E-ATX chassis that completes the Core X Series case line, is a cube case offering endless stackable capacity and expandability for enthusiasts to create massive liquid cooling systems for a single system, file server, or even dual systems. Users can customize the chassis for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design. The Core X5 delivers outstanding cooling performance with compatibility for extensive DIY/AIO LCS and overclocking components, further enhancing the reputation that the air-cooling units in this series has become renowned for. It is guaranteed to be an immensely powerful system! FeaturesStackable and Expandable for Enthusiasts With its endless stacking design, the Core X5 is in a class above the rest. Virtually limitless utility is possible; it offers an expandable system allowing enthusiasts to incorporate externally modular upgrades. Stacked together, the chassis opens up space to expand the liquid cooling system, the storage solutions, or even to create dual systems, thereby enabling a dedicated top/bottom set-up for pure cooling. When stacked, the maximum radiator length supported is 540mm on the front side.
Superior Expansion Designed for high-end gaming system compatibility, the Core X5’s modular drive racks allow gamers to easily install up to seven data storage devices, a dual expansion slot VGA of up to 480mm in length, and a tower CPU cooler as high as 230mm. Even with a high-wattage PSU stretching to 220mm in length, there is still plenty of space left for cable management. In addition, two 360mm radiators can be installed on top of the chassis, delivering superior cooling performance.
Outstanding Ventilation The Core X5’s unparalleled cooling ability offers fan brackets with various mounting points to support any type of gaming system that can be accommodated, including DIY/AIO liquid-cooling systems and air-cooling units. A large 120mm fan is pre-installed on the front side and a rear 120mm fan reassures and guarantees the flow of aeration. The fan brackets can either be adjusted for 120mm, 140mm, or 200mm fans on the top panel, while there is room for 120mm fans on the side panel.
Chambers Concept Optimized for space management, the Core X5 is divided into two main chambers: the upper one is made for cooling performance and better efficiency, while the lower chamber is made for PSU and drive bays. Thanks to the removable 2.5”/3.5” drive device racks, there is plenty of flexibility to gain the maximum interior space when needed for advanced cooling performance or liquid systems build.
Fully Modular Design A “3 +7” drive bay concept design for storage devices makes setting up the best storage solution on the market super easy and flexible. Additionally, a customizable 3.5” & 2.5” drive bay feature enables users to freely interchange the 3.5” hard-drive cages to suit their particular needs.
Interchangeable Window and I/O Panel Allowing for yet more flexibility, the chassis can be customized for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design.

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.
Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Great case with good airflowBought this case on a recommendation from a friend, overall it is a great case with a lot of room, the only dowside is that cable management it tougher than a standard case. With the motherboard laying flat on a plate all cables need to be routed under said plate and can be seen through the perspex side panel.
The case it self will have no issues fitting all current gen hardware and offers excellent airflow with good quality filters all over apart from the bottom where the mesh does not cover the whole area.
for its cost I would recommend this case for almost any build.

Thermaltake Core X5 - one of the worst case's I have ever seenFirstly, let me explain about my computer engineering experience.
I am a Enterprise Brake fix Engineer - I take apart and repair Servers, Sans and other Enterprise class computer products. I have been custom building Computers since the days of the 586 CPU's - so I have a lot of experience with computer hardware.
In the 20 odd years I have done this professionally I have to say I have seen a few very poor quality cases.
This one however drops the bar even low, especially considering todays modern more accurate manufacturing methods.
Conn's - Issues with this case
None of the panels fit squarely
All the screws are to tight like they have been cross threaded / not tapped correctly. thumbscrews were so tight they had to be undone and done up with screwdriver.
The window has 'scuff' marks on it before peeling of the protective film.
The front 5.1/4 bay covers do not line up with the front of the case (recessed in one corner - protruding in another.
When assembled with components inside the whole case can flex. - not rigid.
Case comes with 2X very cheap NON-PWM 120mm fans. I was expecting a 120mm and a 200mm
The finish (paint) on the metal marks as easily as it peels off.
Pro's - The good things
Layout- it really is a great component layout I have a full custom water cooling loop with 2 360 Radiators and still plenty of room for access to everything with the option to add another 240 and 360 radiator.
Access - as everything in this case is removable it was a easy build
I would expect to see a case of this quality for about £25 - £35 on online auction sites, in a popular electronic goods store or on a Computer Fair stall in the mid 90's
The only thing 'faulty' with this case was the scuffs on the window so I opted not to return it. However I will be replacing this case as soon as I can due to the poor build quality and I will not be buying another Thermaltake case in the future.
If Thermaltake sort out the build Quality issues - this would be a great case - as it is however I cannot recommend it.
Hope this review helps someone avoid wasting time and money.
