The Thermaltake Core V1 should be at the top of the list for anyone building a LAN box, HTPC, or Steam Machine. The ability to pack this case with full-size, high-end hardware will make it a favorite with enthusiasts looking to reduce their system's footprint without sacrificing performance.

Tweak Town

Just as the Prodigy did years ago, I can see the Core V1 becoming the basis for many mods to come. It is also one of those cases that will make you ponder buying all the rest of the Mini-ITX gear just so you can complete a build in, and have one of these Core V1 Mini-ITX cases gracing your desk. That alone says volumes about a design. Thermaltake has won us over once again by showing they can offer unique, and stunning designs, even when it comes to a Small Form Factor chassis.

The Mod Zoo

This case has so many capabilities. It’s very easy to disassemble and install all of your computer components. This was such a stress free assembly. There is plenty of room for cable management. Mostly everything that can fit in a larger case can fit in this one from the full size power supply, it can house a 140mm cpu tower cooler, a full size (2 expansion slot sized) GPU of up to 255mm, it can hold 4 solid state drives, and has water cooling capabilities up to a 140mm aio cpu cooler or radiator.

Excellent build quality, easy to access, and a great price. The Silver Award and Innovation Award were given

Hexagon PC

"So, out of all of the mini-ITX cases I’ve used, owned and built into over the past year, this has gotto be one of my absolute favorites. It’s quite up there with the 250D and the nCase M1. I should get on that nCase review by the way. With its maximum portability and efficient usage of its internal space coupled with its price point, this case is a definite must buy for anyone coming into mini-ITX..."

Pure OC

If I had to describe the Core V1 in a few words it would have to be "Functional", "Ease" and "Personal". At this particular moment Thermaltake is hitting pretty close to the bulls-eye.

Think Computers

"I honestly cannot say a single bad thing about this case. If you are looking for a Mini-ITX case this should be your first choice. Currently the Core V1 is selling at my favorite online retailer for $44.90, which is a price that you cannot complain about either. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Thermaltake Core V1 Mini-ITX Case a 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award."

“This is without a doubt one of the best mini-ITX chassis on the market. It’s smaller, more capable and cheaper than almost everything else in its class, with the added bonus that it’s flexible, very well made and extremely easy to work with. If you’re in need of a compact gaming rig, this should be right at the top of your shopping list.”

Ma è anche per l'utente che necessita di un sistema potente e senza troppi compromessi, grazie alle buone doti di raffreddamento, alla possibilità di alloggiare un alimentatore di dimensioni standard e di installare una scheda video dedicata anche di dimensioni parecchio generose.

Thermaltake Core V1 — это отличный маленький корпус, основными достоинствами которого есть продуманная конструкция, хорошая вентиляция, удобство сборки и обслуживания, компактные габариты и простой внешний вид. Материнская плата формата Mini-ITX — является единственным нестандартным элементом в данном шасси, в то время как кулер, видеокарта, блок питания и накопители подойдут и обычного размера. Это одно из немногих шасси, которые позволяют собрать подобную конфигурацию в столь небольшом объеме без особых сложностей и необходимости с линейкой вымерять все компоненты на предмет совместимости.

я без колебаний могу назвать Thermaltake Core V1 одним из лучших вариантов реализации концепции Mini-ITX-корпуса, которые когда-либо попадали в мои руки.




  • Возможность менять местами стенки корпуса
  • Возможность установки СВО
  • Большой 200 мм вентилятор в комплекте
  • Стильный дизайн
