Thermaltake V4 Black Edition Mid Tower Steel Gaming Chassis (VM30001W2Z)

Thermaltake V4 Black Edition Mid Tower Steel Gaming Chassis (VM30001W2Z)

The Thermaltake V4 Black Edition is coated in black from the inside to the outside, lending it stylish looks and a degree of individuality. A transparent window at the back end of the left side panel allows for a look inside the case. This way the brilliant blue beams of the pre-installed 120mm rear exhaust-fan can emanate in a black-bluish array. A perforated black mesh front panel offers optimized airflow and a sleek design.

With dimensions of 430 x 190 x 475mm (H, W, D) the V4 Black Edition is a conveniently sized mid-tower that still offers more than enough room for system upgrades and expandability. There are four 5.25” and one 3.5” bays accessible from the front, and further four 3.5” and one 2.5” bays are accessible from the inside. Peripheral connectivity is given through the implementation of two USB 2.0 and HD audio connectors for MIC and speaker at the front panel.



Thermaltake V4 Black Edition Mid Tower Steel Gaming Chassis (VM30001W2Z) Features
  • Black coating makes a stylish inside look
  • Bottom-placed PSU design for better and easier installation

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfactory Buy

Pros: - lightweight
- Enough room for sizeable gear
- Decent airflow and lighting
- I do like the latches for HD's

Cons: - Flimsy, but expected with the price
- Door panel is sharp, watch your fingers
- Door panel doesn't sit well

Other Thoughts: For the money, an good buy for a moderate sized gaming rig. Been using this case for over 5 years and found it to fit everything I needed for an excellent gaming rig. Space can be tight and if you plan to run extra drives, GPU'S and such, I may suggest a larger case. my only real issue with the case is the door panel. Cut my finger on sharp edges of the panel and it has never sit right in the door guide; Pops off whenever it is moved. I would also warn others to be careful not to torque the case as it can be flexible and may cause damage to installed hardware. All in all, an good buy and a happy customer.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for a decent price.

Pros: Affordable. Lightweight. Relatively compact. Good construction. Good airflow. Plenty of fan mounting points.

Cons: Not very much clearance in certain parts of the case. Can be a tight fit for larger components. Some of the panels are slightly flexible.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case to house a 24/7 media and game server, so I needed something cheap, simple, and relatively compact without all the flash of most modern 'high-flow' cases on the market these days. It serves the purpose wonderfully, keeping my equipment at a relatively low operating temperature.

My only problem has been clearance for the top fan mounts. I needed to purchase 'slim' fans to fit between the top of the case and my motherboard/CPU cooler: The locks for the RAM were in the way of mounting a normal 25x120mm fan, not the RAM sticks themselves.

Fan mounts aside, I was pretty pleased that my CoolerMaster Hyper D92 cleared the side panel with a little less than 1/4 inch to spare.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Well ventilated, good cord management options (both sides open), nice looking, great price for the quality and features, good customer service

Cons: One of my front usb ports was not functioning. Thermaltake sent me a new front port center with quick shipping. I swapped it out and it works fine now. Minor hassle but the only "con" I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This medium sized case would fit most graphics cards and cooling systems. There are ventilation holes on the front, back, side, and top of the case. I have a Cooler Master Hyper T2 heat sink on my processor with the fan blowing up and out the vents. I also added three fans: one on the lower front blowing in, one on the bottom middle blowing up, and one on the top middle blowing up (had to be a "slim" fan because of the motherboard and memory). It's overkill for my system for now, but if I get another graphics card and push my system this case could help a lot.

1 out of 5 eggsdangerously inexpensive

Pros: cheap

Cons: dangrously thin metal, can cause motherboard damage by flexing and cut you badly as it did me.

Other Thoughts: I have several complaints about this case which I wanted to share.

I do not believe law suits should be as prevalent, but with this case I think people would have a good case. I had witness who drove me to hospital about 4 years ago, where pushing the metal blank for the CD drive resulted in my finger being cut, where I still have a bad scar. It took a lot of force and I was using a screw driver but it still slipped into the razor sharp metal that cut to the bone.

I write you today because I wanted to know on top of this, the power supply failed, and when I attempted to replace it. I could not get it out of the case because they used rivets on the top part so you have to remove the CPU heat sink in order to replace the power supply.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case unless you are water cooling

Pros: Really decent case for the price.
Well finished and nice looking.
Great for standard air cooled builds on a budget.

Cons: I bought this case fully intending this to be a water cooled build with the Corsair H100i.
It was apparent after about an hour of toying around that was not going to happen with this case without modifying the case.
Despite the dual 120mm outlets on the case top that match the Corsair H100i radiator, there is not enough clearance on top inside to mount the radiator without taking out the cutter tool and modifying the upper drive bay by notching it by about 1/4 inch. No way, no how, is it going to sit flat horizontally at the top otherwise.
Then....even if you did mod the case to fit the radiator flush with the top, the Corsair's dual 120mm fans interfere with the motherboard clearance.
Just a total NO GO.
I decided to go with another case in the same price range rather than mod this one. Too much effort.
This review is just a heads up for those who think they can use this for a watercooling setup....I'm saving you some time and effort.
Use the Cooler Master N400 case instead.
It is designed for 240mm radiators.
Lower hard drive tray inserts are REALLY cheap plastic on the ThermalTake case....still functional and usable though.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good case...but not for anything other than air cooled builds...despite the large 240mm openings on the case top and side.
I gave it 4 stars because it was a good case, just not for my needs.
It should state NOT WATER COOLING COMPATIBLE in the description.
That would be helpful in many other PC case descriptions too.

4 out of 5 eggsCheaper Thermaltake

Pros: Case is lower cost. It is a solid piece. I like how the front bezel is easy to come off.

Cons: I do not like the options for hiding the cables. The gap is way to small. Top screw for securing the motherboard is really hard to get to on some motherboards in order to save space for the fan on the top of the case.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this case again for the "value" customer, but honestly going to have the customer's upgrade just so that it is easier to work on.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case - functional

Pros: cheap, decent case. functional.

Cons: barely had room for a corsair H60 water cooling unit. bought two of these cases. The intel build could fit the radiator on the top exhaust with difficulty. The AMD build had no place to go, so I ended up mounting the radiator on the side panel - less than ideal, but it works.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK CASE!

Pros: looks nice, decent airflow

Cons: Flimsy design, motherboard & case fans difficult to install....had short circuit in wiring which caused frequent shutdowns...this case is now headed to the scrap heap after only 6 months of use! Waste of $50!

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time and money on this case! I've used several Thermaltake cases over the years, and have never been so disappointed with one of their products!

4 out of 5 eggsAcceptable cool case

Pros: Great airflow
Nice paint
Sturdy case

Cons: Lack of cable management
No 2.5 inch drive bays / adapters for SSD drives
Case needs to be 1 inch taller to use top fans with ATX motherboard

Other Thoughts: I like the mesh covers on the exposed drive bays, very nice. The case is 1 inch too short: An ATX motherboard comes right to the top of the case, so the top fans hit any connectors or RAM that are on that edge. I was able to install one top fan by offsetting it and putting the screws through the mesh, thankfully. You could probably install a smaller fan (80-100mm) up top through the mesh as well.

The tool-less drive adapters work fairly well, although I prefer using screws.

For those complaining about the bottom-mounted power supply: Putting the PSU on the bottom allows room for two top fans for better heat exhaust. (If the motherboard allowed room to install both)

One other oddity: The case includes a small corner bracket to help hold the PSU in place, which originally prevented blocked the PSU until I removed the bracket, installed the PSU, then reinstalled the bracket. Being all black inside, this was difficult to see.

I have no problems with the power button on my case.
