Thermaltake Black Core X5 EATX PC Gaming Cube Case
Thermaltake Core X5 E-ATX Cube Computer Chassis, Black, E-ATX/ATX/Micro ATX/Mini ITX, Stackable, with Window, 2x USB 3.0
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.
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.
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.
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.

There's more choice than ever before, but which computer case is right for you and which features should you look out for?
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.

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.
