5 out of 5 eggsGreat, cool-looking box

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: Looks good sitting on the floor in the corner of the living room.
Plenty of space.
All five sides (not the back) are easy to take off. Taking the bottom off helped when installing the atx power supply.

Cons: I'm using this case for a NAS/media server that runs 24/7. The 200mm fan on the front is quiet but I don't need it to run 24/7 as well. Not sure if it's because the fan has a 3-pin connection or if it's the motherboard/BIOS, but I can't get the fan to not run full blast all of the time.

Other Thoughts: This case isn't ideal for a NAS with more than two 3.5" HDDs. But you could mount two more on one of the side grills.

4 out of 5 eggsShort time...first impressions.

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: I didn't really get to spend much time with the case, because I ordered the wrong size. Make sure to double check when your ordering. :) Overall I thought it was a cool little case. The size of it would have been great if I was going for a mITX. For the price it is about what you would expect. I would have given it a little lower score if the cost of the item would have been much higher, but this is considering you get what you pay for. Overall the design seemed solid, and I would have trusted it in a good low cost build. There is plenty of airflow, and the modular like design gives it a lot of flexibility.

Cons: A little too bare bones for me. Plenty of options for extra fans but only comes with the one front radiator which is non filtered. If you are looking for something that you can put your own touch to from the beginning, this is great. But if I am already having to add new or replace with better quality fans I decided to look at other options that had them included. I think if it were a mITX I was going for, this case might have been suitable with the open-vented like structure it had to it. But looking in to the future I decided I wanted something that was going to keep from dusting up too quickly.

Other Thoughts: I should mention again that the rating is based off of its price point. The structure of the case was solid, but seemed a little cheap in a general sense. Incredibly light weight which could be a good or a bad thing. I didn't get to use it long enough to give a solid report because I ended up upgrading to a slightly more premium case. The upgrade cost me a good extra $100, but in the end I feel very good about the decision.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX Case on a budget

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: - Very spacious for an ITX
- Cable management was actually very easy for such a small build
- Built-in air filters for the front intake and the PSU
- Case feels sturdy and well built

Cons: - Front air filter is non-removable
- HDD cages are confusing and the documentation is far from helpful
- Power LED is excessively bright, I ended up unplugging it all together

Other Thoughts: The only issues I had with this case pertained to the HDD cages. They're difficult to remove and put back in. In addition, if you mount a 2.5" SSD behind a 3.5" HDD (the only way to use 4 drives) the SSD sits awkwardly and doesn't look like it's in the right place and the only documentation is essentially a diagram of where screws should go. The rack it goes into also scraped a bunch of plastic of the top of my drive before I could get it in there.

All in all a great little case though, with all the features you'd find in something at double the price.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: Large fan
Filtered air
Separate intakes and exhaust for both PSU and mainboard
Rubber mounts for 3.5" drives
Accepts ATX12V form factor

Cons: I wish it had more drive slot trays, it has room for them on in side along the edge (it comes with mounts for 2x 2.5" and 2x 2.5" or 3.5"

Other Thoughts: Verdict: Excellent, would buy again

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Amazing Case, and I should know

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: Small and compact compared to mid and full size towers
Good looks
USB 3.0 ports
4 sides can be swapped with other side panels (very cool feature!)
Easy to pop off front grill and mesh screen filter for the PSU.
Can fit a full size PSU and GPU (although my Gigabyte G1 960 was 1mm too long for this case)
Fan is very quiet

Cons: Not as small as other form factors
No built in SD card readers
Buttons are on the side of the case (good if you have the case sidways, bad if you have it frontward against a wall)

Other Thoughts: I have been building PC's as a hobby for the past 13 years. I have owned the old school cases and more recently built in Corsair 600T, 650D; Cooler Master HAF cases; a few mid tower Antec's among others. Corsair makes amazing cases and in my opinion are the standard for best cases, but cost an arm and a leg. I wasn't expecting much with this, even though I have owned previous Thermaltake towers with mixed results, but they never seemed top tier.

Then I decided to build this mini itx system and thought, meh, if I'm going somewhat budget on this build, why not get a cheaper case? I mean, the case isn't as important as the internals so I figured save an extra $70 by getting this case over the nice Corsiar right? So, when this arrived I couldn't believe how nice it was. It might not be the best in this price range, but I can't believe they made this case for this price point! I love that I can switch the windowed panel to any side I want, I love that the tower has a super quiet fan and can still support a AIO liquid cooler. I love the fact that it can support larger GPU's (although my Gigabyte G1 960 was literally 1mm too long for the case, so be aware of that). It fit my full sized modular PSU without issue. Its a pretty amazing case and I'd bet you won't find one better at this price point. If your building a compact PC and want a good case at a cheap price, you can stop looking and get this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Roomy Cube

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: Looks good, has good airflow and room for large-ish cooler, full-length GPU and full-size ATX PSU. Included ~200mm front fan moves a lot of air without being too loud. I used the new Cryorig M9 CPU cooler and it fit nicely with a few mm to spare. GPU has direct cool air intake from outside.

High quality, well finished case inside and out, and a steal at $30 after rebate.

Cons: Not very small, and the larger width of the cube style means lots of shelf space needed. 80mm exhaust fans (not included) have limited selection and tend to be noisier than 120mm.

If you're looking to do closed liquid cooling, you have to remove the awesome large front fan to mount the radiator.

No expansion bay, but it's almost 2016 and you should already know this.

Other Thoughts: Good choice for fitting full-size components in a mini ITX with good airflow. If you don't need the high CPU cooler clearance (stock/low-proile/liquid cooler) you may want to consider other smaller cases.

5 out of 5 eggsabsolutely perfect case

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: I fit the 4.0 ghz intel i7 chip 4790k into this on an evga board. It games better than the tower I built 2 years ago and fits in the closet. It's 12" long and my graphics card nvidia strix 970 (silent) is 11.5" and it fits. I used a twist tie to make the fan not hit the edge of the case, just made sure the plastic wasn't resting on the metal heat pipe (easy set up).

Cons: None really, compared to working on replacing a cell phone antenna, this is easy to put together and very roomy

Other Thoughts: After about 9 months I decided to clean it, thinking there would be lots of dust inside from the sides having wide air grates, I took a cover or 2 off and saw no dust. I pulled the front cover off and thought about running it under the sink, instead I took the vacuum to it. It looked so clean I put it back on. All the dust in this case will simply collect on the front cover and is easily vacuumed away. very quiet large fan. You will hear little electronic sounds from the voltage going through the board before you hear the fan.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty nice Little Case

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: -Super small yet plenty of room to work.
-Supports -+10"-11" video cards.
-Very cool, plenty of ventilation
-Full ATX PSU support

Cons: -Only Con I have it was the quality control. It arrived with a broken bottom foot. The tabs were broken so the front left foot came loose. The tabs are made of a very rigid plastic which makes it very brittle if that make sense.

Other Thoughts: Would of gave it a solid 4 stars if it wasn't because of the broken bottom foot/bumper.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. We will replace that broken bottom foot through warranty service. Please contact our support team about this matter.
Best Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsMy 1st ITX build... and I love it!!!

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)

Pros: I bought this case since it had a rebate, I'm currently using for my Home Entertainment PC in my living room.
I was able to install a 120mm water cooler on the front and keep the 200mm fan as intake, so far so good.
You can fit a standard size PSU no problem, I would recommend to use a full modular, or at least a semi-modular PSU, that will leave you more room for airflow.

Cons: It doesn't come on white :)

Other Thoughts: I installed the following components without modifying or taking anything out of the case:
- Gigabyte Z97N WiFi
- i5 4690K
- Sandisk Ultra II 480GB SSD
- PNY XLR8 16GB
- Cooler Master Seidon 120M
- Raidmax 635W 80+ Bronze

Still waiting on deals to get a GTX 970 :)
