An ITX cube case offers an endless stackable and expandable cooling solution while allowing externally-modular upgrades for enthusiasts to create dual systems.

Thermaltake Core X1 ITX Cube Chassis

Core X1, the first ITX chassis of Core X Series presented by Thermaltake, is a cube case offering endless stackable capacity and expandability for enthusiasts to create massive liquid cooling systems, utilize as a file server as well as accommodate dual systems. Users can customize the chassis for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design. The Core X1 delivers outstanding cooling performance with compatibility for extensive DIY/AIO LCS and overclocking components, further enhancing the reputation that the air-cooling units of this series has become renowned for. It is guaranteed to be an immensely powerful system!

Stackable for Enthusiasts

With its endless stacking design, the Core X1 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 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.

Remarkable Expansion

Designed for high-end gaming system compatibility, the Core X1’s modular drive racks allow gamers to easily install up to six data storage devices with triple PCI configuration space. VGA of up to 400mm in length, and a tower CPU cooler as high as 200mm. Even with a high-wattage PSU stretching to 220mm in length, it still leaves plenty of space for cable management.

Excellent Ventilation

The Core X1’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. Two 120mm fan are preinstalled on the front and rear to reassure and guarantee the flow of aeration. The fan brackets can either be adjusted for 120mm, 140mm, or 200mm fans on the top panel.

Chambers Concept

Optimized for space management, the Core X1 is divided into two main chambers: the upper chamber is made for cooling performance and better efficiency, while the lower one 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.

Fully Modular Design

A “2+4” drive bay concept design for storage devices makes setup super easy and flexible. In addition, a customizable 5.25” & 3.5” drive bay feature enables users to freely interchange the 3.5” hard-drive cages to suit their particular needs.

Interchangeable Window and I/O Panel

Users can customize the chassis for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design.

Tt LCS Certified

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.

"This brings us to one conclusion and it's the same that we started this review discussing. The Core X1 is designed for a high-end water-cooled system with all the bells and whistles but has such monstrous cooling capacity that you can trim all the fan speeds down to silent levels and still beat the pants off an all-in-one liquid cooler at a fraction of the noise. In addition, the large size and expansive side window mean that building a PC you'd want to show off, perhaps with hard line acrylic tubing, is worth it too; something that very few mini-ITX cases offer. If that's the kind of system that you're hoping to build, with oodles of excess and overkill and you're also set on mini-ITX, then the Core X1 is quite possibly the best case for you and by a long way."
