Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis, Compatible with air and Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B8-00S1WN-00)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fun/easy to work in, even the bottom comes off!! Enough room for the Thermaltake NiC 120 cooler. Plenty room for any GPU. I used Corsair CS450M PSU which is about 1" shorter to give me more cable room which was nice, but really didn't need to. Cooling is ideal with 200mm front fan, can't image system where you'd need rear fans. Fan is silent when controlled from mobo. Nice easy washable filter on front, just take to kitchen sink. Installed 8" blue LED light strip in top front blue, lights up quite nice but should of used red to maintain Thermaltake decor.

Cons: Unit came with two right side panels, rather than a right and left side. Noticed in pictures on Newegg some had two right side, some had mirrored sides??? Not sure what deal is here but decided not to doc an egg.

Other Thoughts: Not suited for water cooling. Definitely use modular PSU.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2666 (PC3 21300) Desktop Memory Model F3-2666C11Q-16GZHD

Pros: No issues at all. Running at 1.5v at 2606 on x79 2011 system. Get warm in water cooled environment where no direct air flow, so using fans.

Cons: Not to take away from RAM, but included fans are noisy. I'm using old Corsair fan set with fans replaced with Noctua fans - no noise, much more air!!! Pricey those Noctua fans...

Other Thoughts: The best at reasonable prices...

Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Impressive performance for price. I have a PCI SSD drive in my main system. This is just as fast for a fraction of the price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: On new mini-ITX, post and Windows 8.1 boot is done before monitor lights up, about 10 seconds!! (Gig H97N-WIFI and 4670K at 3.8 gHz.)
