Great mini itx case for the money!

Pros: Great cable managerment, and a large window on top to show it off. Each side can be taken off independently, making it easy to work on. The PSU sits on the bottom so there is lots of room to work with. Cant say enough good things about this one.

Cons: I also have the cooler master elite 130, and I think that looks better. I'm not a big fan of the cube.

Other Thoughts: Cant go wrong with this one for the money.

Decent Quality but a Noisy Dust Trap

Pros: -Interesting shape and small-ish size with interchangeable panels makes it easy to work on and configure.

Cons: -Using the 80mm slots for two exhaust fans adds too much noise to a very open case. I cannot find an 80mm fan that is honestly quiet.
- Large mesh holes in side panels with no dust filters allow dust & debris into the case
- Clear plastic window is very cheap and scratches incredibly easy. Don't look at it the wrong way, it'll scratch.
- No thoughtful cable management to be found.
- The very open case design I mention above, allows you to hear everything, using a stock Ryzen wraith cooler didn't bother me before, but now I find it unbearable.
- Drive brackets for HDD or SSD are flimsy junk and block any hope of cable management.

Other Thoughts: There are so many better options on the market for small cases. Don't waste your time and money on this thing like I did.

Perfect!

Pros: The case is whisper quiet. The single 200mm fan it comes with has no problems exchanging air. The panels are very sturdy, easy to change, remove, and configure. The frame is extremely rigid, and even screw threads are perfectly cut. The best word to describe this case in a broad sense, is precision. Everything is perfectly machined. The cable management is beautiful. It's very roomy despite being very small. The HDD mounts are very well made too, and come with shock absorbing rubbed washers. The little things that make this case so wonderful are numerous. Even the paint job is perfect. I was thrilled to build in this case. 10/10 would recommend.

Cons: None at all!

Other Thoughts: I will definitely be buying a lot more Thermaltake cases for my future builds after this experience. They really went above and beyond.

Nice Case for the Price with a Unique Aesthetic

Pros: -Phenomenal cooling for a small case
-Nice finish all around
-Accomodates a full size PSU
-Accomodates larger CPU coolers than most mini ITX cases (Fits the Cryorig H7 perfectly even though the manual says it will only fit coolers up to 140mm in height)
-Although the case doesn't officially support it, it's very easy to install additional fans on the side panels
-Very competitively priced

Cons: -The case is pretty large. I definitely wouldn't consider it a small form factor case
-The drive mounting system is absolutely terrible. Using only 2.5 inch drives the mounts block the power cables so the mounts have to be bent slightly.
-Cable management is pretty bad. I didn't expect much from a case this small, but there wasn't even an attempt made at adding cable routing channels or tie down points.
-Lack of dust filters on the side panels.
-Poor case panel mounts. They're only secured by thumb screws and aren't held against the case firmly. If you press against them slightly you can feel them move and vibrate.
-The included 200mm fan isn't a pwm fan

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a decent case for the price. Standard mini itx towers offer better cable management and similar cooling with more flexibility for around the same price, but I really like that this case is unique. I'd love it if they made a more expensive "elite" version of this case with side dust filters, a front PWM fan and the option for a top panel without a window.

Neat case for dedicated gaming rig

Pros: Good air flow
Dust filter built into front panel for the sexy 200mm front fan. Love the 200mm front fan. There's also a removable filter on the bottom to protect the power supply.
Enough room inside the case even though it's so small.
Top, bottom, and side panels are all removable. Able to build from all angles.
Side and top panels are interchangeable allowing for self expression

Cons: Only allows for a 140mm height CPU heatsink, but this is a small form case, so it's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended

Very Pleased. Nice Case, Easy Installation

Pros: - Small-ish and compact. I for one believe there is ample space for wire management for non-modular PSUs due to the 'basement' type PSU configuration. One reason I bought this (10.9"x10.2"x12.4") rather than a Cooler Master Elite 110 (8.2"x10.3"x11.1") that has the "over the CPU" PSU mount was because I intended on using a cheaper, non-modular PSU. Plenty of room between the fan and the PSU to bundle unused wires. Note that I also recently purchased a SilverStone SUGO SG12B with a similar PSU mount as the Elite 110 that I haven't been an extreme fan of. You're limited on coolers, you're limited on airflow... just wanted something different.
- This unit was extremely well made, and that was a pleasant surprise. I had no issues that others describe and had everything installed in less than two hours while my baby slept. For example, there were comments on the HDD/SDD mounts. You have to rock them into place ( from "/" to "|") , and this is by no means a difficult task.
- More than enough ventilation. Definitely more than my SUGO SG12B. I like that.

Cons: My "cons" aren't really "cons," more "nit-picks." There is nothing here that would keep me from purchasing this unit again, in a heartbeat:
- Quiet? Hardly. I don't know what people are saying regarding this being "silent." When you have a fan that large (200mm!!) out front, you're going to hear it, and this is no exception. However, I do not rate sub-$50 cases based upon pre-installed fans.
- I am 37 years old. I don't think plastic see-through windows on computer cases are cool.
- I am 37 years old. I don't think a Blue LED Power indicator is cool. If you didn't know, Blue LEDs are essentially the brightest.
- No Optical Drive Bay?!?! There's also no floppy drive bay!! Weird how this turns people off. "I want something small, but I want it to have everything a full tower has. Optical bay, 17 HDD bays, and space for a 240mm radiator." C'mon, man!

Other Thoughts: - If someone asked me for a budget-build, mini-itx case, this is my recommendation.
- Over the course of a few months scavenging spare parts (most bought just because newegg or the list de craig had deals I couldn't pass up... so I had parts I'd purchased that I wasn't really using) and a few newbies, I put together a wonderful little unit I'll use for a transportable video game emulator:
Case: Thermaltake Core V1
CPU: Pentium G3258
MoBo: MSI H81I
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper T2
PSU: EVGA 500 B1
GPU: XFX R9-270X-CDFR
RAM: 8GB of Kingston HyperX Genesis
SSD: ADATA SU800 128GB
HDD: WD10EZEX 1TB
Aside from the case, mobo, cooler, and PSU, everything was second-hand.
<SEE UPDATE BELOW>

UPDATE 22-Aug-2017:
I just installed the NOCTUA NF-A20 PWM 200x200x30mm, 4pin, 800rpm, and this fan is WAY more quiet than the stock fan. Like, 50% more quiet.

UPDATE 10-Nov-2017:
Wowzers on the rebate. I purchased this unit 24-July. I created my online claim on 1-August and mailed the documentation. The system showed "Documentation Received" on 10-August. On 11-August, my rebate was "Approved," then, nothing. Finally, on 13-October, I sent an email requesting the status of my rebate. Within 24 hours, I received a response:

"The file related to your Thermaltake Reward tracking # <tracking number> has been located in the system, payment will be this week and you should receive your card in the next 7-14 business days."

Then, on 10-November, I received my rebate. Temper your expectations for your rebates, friends. It may be awhile. The only reason I'm writing this is because I see soooo many reviews on newegg based upon rebates rather than the products themselves. My experience has been Corsair rebates are mega-fast. Cooler Master and EVGA rebate processing (mailed to Tempe) are perfectly acceptable. Thermaltake and MSI rebates mailed to El Paso PO Box 130018... eek. These have never been quick for me, personally. Quick to accept/receive? Yes. Quick to process payment? Absolutely not.

UPDATE 04-Dec-2017:
Became agitated with my 'primary' machine (the SilverStone SG12B) and transferred all 'better' components to this Thermaltake Core V1 build:
Case: Thermaltake Core V1
CPU: Pentium G3258 @4.0GHz, stock voltages
MoBo: MSI H81I
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper T2 with Noctua NF-A9 PWM Fan
PSU: Corsair RM550x Fully Modular PSU
GPU: Gigabyte GV-N105TOC-4GD (GTX 1050Ti)
RAM: 8GB of Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3-1600
SSD: Samsung 250GB 850 Evo
HDD: WD10EZEX 1TB
Case Fan: Noctua NF-A20 200mm out front from before
Case Fan: 2x Noctua NF-A8 80mm for rear exhaust... definitely overkill, but I had them so I figured I'd use them.
The power supply wasn't necessary to swap, but I wanted the premium fan and control of the RM550x. Although the handle on the SilverStone SG12B case was nice, the machine was remarkably heavy and just too cumbersome. The footprint/desk space became too much, the storage cooling was subpar, and I just had enough. This Thermaltake unit is now remarkably quiet and it moves A LOT of air. If I hit 50DegC on my CPU, it's only after intensive usage (stress test) for > 60 min. I love the size and the cooling of this case... if I haven't made that clear yet.

My only real gripe is still the LED. During sleep, that thing blinks BRIGHT. Needless to say, this is my primary machine now and I am still extremely happy.
