Thermaltake Core X5 Riing Edition E-ATX Cube Chassis

The Core X5 Riing Edition, the new E-ATX chassis that completes the Core X Series case line, is a cube case offering endless stackable capacity and expandability for enthusiasts to create massive liquid cooling systems for a single system, file server, or even dual systems. Users can customize the chassis for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design. The Core X5 Riing Edition delivers outstanding cooling performance with compatibility for extensive DIY/AIO LCS and overclocking components, further enhancing the reputation that the air-cooling units in this series has become renowned for. It is guaranteed to be an immensely powerful system!

Thermaltake

Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification applied to only products that pass the design and hardcore enthusiasts standards that a true LCS chassis should be held to. The Tt LCS certification was created so that we at Thermaltake can designate to all power users which chassis have been tested to be best compatible with extreme liquid cooling configurations to ensure you get the best performance from the best features and fitment.

Thermaltake

Stackable and Expandable for Enthusiasts

With its endless stacking design, the Core X5 Riing Edition is in a class above the rest. Virtually limitless utility is possible; it offers an expandable system allowing enthusiasts to incorporate externally modular upgrades. Stacked together, the chassis opens up space to expand the liquid cooling system, the storage solutions, or even to create dual systems, thereby enabling a dedicated top/bottom set-up for pure cooling. When stacked, the maximum radiator length supported is 540mm on the front side.

Thermaltake

Superior Expansion

Designed for high-end gaming system compatibility, the Core X5 Riing Edition’s modular drive racks allow gamers to easily install up to seven data storage devices, a dual expansion slot VGA of up to 480mm in length, and a tower CPU cooler as high as 230mm. Even with a high-wattage PSU stretching to 220mm in length, there is still plenty of space left for cable management. Moreover, two 360mm radiators can be installed on top of the chassis, delivering superior cooling performance.

Thermaltake

Outstanding Ventilation

The Core X5 Riing Edition's unparalleled cooling ability offers fan brackets with various mounting points to support any type of gaming system that can be accommodated, including DIY/AIO liquid-cooling systems and air-cooling units. A 140mm green Riing fan is pre-installed on the front side and a rear 140mm green Riing fan reassures and guarantees the flow of aeration. The fan brackets can either be adjusted for 120mm, 140mm, or 200mm fans on the top panel, while there is room for 120mm fans on the side panel.

Thermaltake

Chambers Concept

Optimized for space management, the Core X5 Riing Edition is divided into two main chambers: the upper one is made for cooling performance and better efficiency, while the lower chamber is made for PSU and drive bays. Thanks to the removable 2.5”/3.5” drive device racks, there is plenty of flexibility to gain the maximum interior space when needed for advanced cooling performance or liquid systems build.

Thermaltake

Fully Modular Design

A "3 + 4 + 3" drive bay concept design for storage devices makes setting up the best storage solution on the market super easy and flexible. Additionally, a customizable 3.5" & 2.5" drive bay feature enables users to freely interchange the 3.5" hard-drive cages to suit their particular needs.

Thermaltake

Interchangeable Window and I/O Panel

Allowing for yet more flexibility, the chassis can be customized for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design.

Cons: The only thing is that with the extreme size of this case, it looses a bit of structural rigidity when the side panels are off. Nothing to drastic, just be prepared to have to push and pull on some coroners to get the panels back on!

Overall Review: I bought this case to house a system that would replace my dedicated gaming computer, workstation and NAS. And wow, it hit the mark! I discovered a few interesting things, but first, the specs:

-32GB Team DARK RAM (4x8GB)
-ASRock EP2C602 SSI EEB motherboard
-Dual PSUs:
-Corsair RM850i
-Some old 350 Watt I had lying around
-Twin Xeon E5-2670 CPUs
-Twin Hyper 212X dual 120mm fan coolers
-Kingston UV400 120GB SSD
-WD Blue 500GB sata 6Gb/s
-48 (Not a mistake, FORTY-EIGHT) WD blue 2.5" 250GB sata 3Gb/s
-Nvidia EVGA 9600GT (I don't game that much)
-Triple LSI00137 MegaRAID 16-port raid cards
-Windows 10 PRO

So, those few interesting thing:
First off, you may have noticed that I put an SSI EEB form factor motherboard in this case. I new what i was getting into, and I was planning to drill new standoff mounts into the motherboard tray and support bracket. But, be it the motherboard or the
case, all but one standoff (some weird, inconsequential one in the middle of the motherboard) lined up perfectly! I found nothing on the internet about anyone else doing this, so leave it to your own discretion if you want to try it out. But this case and the EP2C602 are in fact compatible!
Another thing is that yes, I've crammed 48 drives into here. They were all previously in a custom rack enclosure and I've just built them up over the years. Obviously this case doesn't have native support for that many drives, so I built my own supports out of Mechano. The bricks of drives (one of 24 and one of 16) fit in the basement, in front of the power supplies, and I moved the front 140mm fan from inside the case to between the front internal wall and the external front panel, no issues. Cable running (12 SAS to SATA cables and 8 molex to 5 SATA power, plus some extras) was a little annoying due to the sheer amount of wiring, but eventually I got it looking neat and tidy... ish. The front 140mm fan blows air through the vertically mounted drives and keeps it all cool with the help of the PSUs pulling air out the back.

All in all, the customizability of this case is a godsend to enthusiast builders, or people like me who are just messing around doing admittedly crazy things with way, way, way to much hardware. For the price, this case is an absolute steal. I dont really see me buying another case for a main PC build anymore, I'll just slap a new coat of paint of this one and use it again! Very pleased with this case, I recommend it to anyone who has the space to put it!
