5 out of 5 eggsSmall design, great case!

Pros: I had to decide between a Cooler Master 110 and this case. Decided for this case due to the design. The whole front is a huge fan. The side panels can be interchanged so I can put the glass panel on any side I want. The Power Supply goes in the bottom and has space to leave the unused cables(using a non modular PSU), There is enough space to fit large-ish cards and CPU cooler. Its also Water Cooling compatible which I am considering but as of now it doesn't make the slightest noise.

Cons: The reset button is kind of unnecessary and they are not labeled

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CASE!!!!

Pros: Great case, easy to work in it. Just watch the YouTube videos and see how modular this case is for building. Definitely recommend a modular power supply for this case.

Cons: Side panels are kinda loss but with some foam strips the case is solid.

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this case

Pros: I have built a lot of PCs over the past 23 years and I have seen good and bad cases. This is a good one. Here is why:

1. Removable and ventilated PCI slot covers. This is a big one for me.
2. 200mm front intake fan, with foam filter. The foam filter is not removable, unfortunately.
3. POSITIVE PRESSURE design. Dust will only accumulate at the front on the case, but all the other ventilation holes will remain dust free. This is assuming you don't add fans. Not that you really need to.
4. Strong airflow.
5. Near silent, even with the front fan at full blast.
6. All black.
7. Nice long leads...everything from the FP audio connector cable to the USB 3.0 FP connector are LONG. Maybe even a bit too long...but I would rather have them long than short!
8. Takes full size ATX power supplies.
9. Room for most full size, high-end video cards.
10. Customizable is regards to where you want the vented panels vs. the window. I have the window on top.
11. Removable PSU dust filter.
12. Water cooler capability (see manufacturer website for more details on that one...)
13. Sturdy once built.
14. 3.5" HDDs are mounted with rubber anti-vibration grommets. Nice touch and attention to detail. Additionally, even the PSU area has two rubber pads with multiple locations for different size PSUs to minimize vibrations.

Cons: The drive mounting trays will take some getting used to. They are not thick metal, so it is easy to bend them while removing them. The way to do it is to remove the thumb screws and then simply pull the drive tray away from the case towards you. It took me a while to figure that one out. At first I thought they had to be slid back or forth since they were probably (in my thinking) also attached with metal slide lock tabs. They are not. They simply snap in and out at an angle.

The biggest complaint I have is the USB 3.0 FP ports are located very close to the easily depressed power switch. It is very easy to turn your machine off trying to plug in a USB device!

Other Thoughts: This case is worth the money and then some. Thermaltake obviously put some thought into this case and it has a great deal of value to offer for the relatively low asking price.

I recommend it!

3 out of 5 eggsQuality is Slightly Lacking

Pros: -Very Compact
-Good Looking
-Versatile Configuration
-Good Airflow
-Inexpensive
-Comes with a 200 mm fan

Cons: There is somewhat of an issue with quality control. Both of the perforated panels that came with mine had issues. One had some finish missing on the corner revealing some rust and the other the tab for the case screw was bent badly out of shape. I wanted to return the case for an exchange but it would cost me $25 to ship back. Clearly not worth it.

Other Thoughts: I'm still going to build in it, but I'm disappointed with these flaws. It looks like a case that has a ton of potential as far customizing and modding. Also it is much smaller than my current Corsair 350D. That case should not be considered compact by any means.

4 out of 5 eggsV1 Review

Pros: Small and beautiful, lotsa room to work with, good air flow, 120/140 cpu cooler fan

- Missing screws for one of the panels :(

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great construction, highly customizable. All the components I used fit without issue, and it appears to have enough room to fit large video cards (though they might stretch into the front bezel a bit).

Cons: One thumbscrew was inside the case, outside of the accessory bag. I was a bit surprised to find it there. Not sure if it was by design, or if someone just placed it in there by mistake. I felt that cable management options could be a little better, but I suppose for the size of the case they were decent. Most cables can be hidden in front of the PSU.

Other Thoughts: It is important to note that with this case your components will be very visible at all times through either the window or the large amount of side ventilation.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MITX

Pros: I was a bit worried being that this was my first computer build and I was using what some call a MITX. But let me tell you, this case made it a breeze. Once you remove all the sides, everything went in easy. It didn't take me long to have everything hooked up and running.

Small footprint.

The case will fit a EVGA 750Ti FTW with room to spare.

A EVGA 500B PSU fit with no problems....size wise (See Cons).

Cable management can be done if you take the time to do it.

The 200mm fan is quite though I haven't tried to listen for it. I also have lots of background noise in my house and that may play a roll in me not hearing it.

Cons: I did run into a problem with one standoff and the PSU holes not lining up with my EVGA 500B. It did take a small effort for the standoff screw to go in but the PSU hole...that took some force. I did get it to go in but only after I backed out every screw. Was it my fault, EVGA or TT's?? Who knows. It wasn't a 'shoot' moment for me.

The window could have been a made better. Its very....thin, flimsy and breakable. Use some brains when you move the panel around. Cracking can be heard when force is used to remove it from the case.

The front panel is very easy to flex and bend. I already bent the top left and don't even have a clue how it did it. Again use some brains with these panels.

Other Thoughts: All in all I can not deduct any eggs even with the cons listed above. Reason being is that these cases get produced on a mass scale and yes, some time CQ doesn't pick up on the smaller details that we deal with. IE mounting holes not lining up with motherboards or PSUs.

I would have also seen at least one rear fan be included with the case. I haven't had any heat issues but just having that one fan could be comforting in knowing you can exhaust some heat build up..if any.

The logo on the front is placed in an indention that is made into the panel. I would have like to seen this done differently. If you are a person who might rotate the case, the logo will be sideways. I've hear that you can remove it but you will still have the indention where it was. If TT would use a metal logo with a small screw attached to it, then its a simple unbolt and bolt it where you want it.

Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this case to anyone who wants a simple MITX case.

3 out of 5 eggsThermaltake v1 case

Pros: For $40.00 there is nothing better! Would give it 5 stars had it not been for poor quality control. See below.

Cons: Quality control is the issue on this one. Two motherboard standoffs were not properly threaded. Inserted both screws on one side just fine--- the other side the screws would not start. Took the installed screws from good side to use in the suspect mounts. Same problem. Would not start. Had to force it in with a screw driver in order to get it in. Of course the screw threads are now messed up but at that point what else can you do short of re-tapping or returning it. Also the Power led cable shows two positives instead of one negative and one positive. Would be nice to get a partial credit for the defective mounts.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
Please contact Customer Service and we can have the standoffs or any other screws that may be damaged.

5 out of 5 eggsModern case design and includes some undervalued case features!

Pros: This is my favorite mini-ITX case so far, I've had an Azza Z and a Cooler Master Elite 130 before the core v1. I wanted to get my hands on the ncase m1 but it was way too expensive. For this $40-50 price it's extremely easy to work with and has great ventilation.

If I ever wanted to change the heat sink or cpu cooler I don't have to take apart everything. I just open all 4 panels unscrew the power supply and move it to the side. Then i have access to the cpu cutout below. It's wonderful not having to take out the whole motherboard and cables attached to it to change coolers.

The interchangeable panels is pretty darn useful. I just wish they sold the mesh individually panels too.

The powersupply and cables have their own compartment. There's lots of room for your Graphics card and a semi large cpu cooler (given that it isn't over 140mm tall total).

It also has motherboard mounts already so you don't need to screw in any risers.

***Comparisons***
the azza z was the hardest to work with and wasn't very flexible. Everything just takes twice as longer to put together.

The cooler master elite on the other hand has a weird top mounted power supply spot that bulges out in the back. It was easier to work with than the Azza but the Core V1 is still much easier. You can't remove the bottom panel of the coolermaster 130 and can't change heatsink without removing the motherboard for it. The cable management for the Core V1 is much better as it has a separate power supply compartment under the motherboard.

Cons: The only think that I don't like about the core v1 is the fan filter in the front mesh panel. You would have to bend the metal clips welded to the front cover 90 degrees to take out the filter. I have a feeling if one does this too often or bend the clips back too far the metal clips would snap.

Other Thoughts: Hidden features: "You can mount additional fans and drives right on the side panel grating using the rubber grommets that come with the case. You can also order more window panels if you want a sexier look and a quieter build." -Oafah

One of the best Mini ITX Cases ever made!

2 out of 5 eggsPoorly manufactured/Quality control

Pros: The case looks good. thumb screws come with the case, big 200mm fan. It's definitely priced good! I love Mini ITX cases.

Cons: Unfortunately the case came with a manufacturing defect, the motherboard tray was not installed properly inside it during fabrication so only 1 of the pop rivets was actually installed correctly. Seriously quality control was sleeping away when my case was put together as it was easily detectable if he'd just looked at the thing for 2 secs.

Other Thoughts: I've RMA'd the case for now for replacement, we'll see how case #2 is when it shows up.
