[Official] Thermaltake Core V1 Owners' Club

post #1 of 1692
Thread Starter 
This club is for owners and people interested in the Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX case

Thermaltake Mini Chassis - Core V1
The new Core V1 represented by Thermaltake is a small and cute ITX based chassis with a 200mm fan in the front panel. Smart interchangeable side panels allow users to flip it accordingly to showcase either for superior liquid cooling or superb airflow, which allows you to make your own personal setup. You not only grant to have a really powerful mini system, it also has the ability to house various overclocking components to keep it really cool!





Rules: Show off your rig and no disrespect

Still waiting for all my parts to come in. I'll post when it's complete. Here's my dust filters that I made from fiberglass screen and some adhesive magnetic sheets.





Once my build's complete and running for a bit, I'll post about the effectiveness of the filters.

The H97I-Plus is what I have in mine, so the Z97 should be great as well. ASUS' UEFI looks amazing.

How are those Arctic F8s? I have the PWM ones. Haven't fired them up yet... still waiting for parts. Also, what lights are those? I want green ones! biggrin.gif

The fans are good! They are next to silent. If you're closer than 6 inches you can hear them but very quiet. They don't blow a ton of air but they do enough. I'm not sure what kinda lights these are... I found them in my closet from a build I did a year or two ago. Unfortunately they are like the fans, they don't produce a lot of light but they do enough. They are 4 inch cathodes. Looking forward to seeing your build!

Hi all

I'm building one with this case too, I had a hard time choosing this or the U3, but finally decided on this for the extra length for the GPU.

Here's my parts:

i7 4790k
Stock cooler
Gigabyte Z97N-Gaming 5
Crucial 2x 8GB DDR3 1333
MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
Crucial M500 480GB SSD
Toshiba 3TB HDD
EVGA Supernova G2 850W

Haven't decided on the CPU cooler (wanted to do some overclocking) and the 2x 80mm fans yet (I wanted to see if I can mount bigger fans to the side panels, I'm thinking if the fans uses push pins then it might work?)

I should receive all the parts by next week, so hopefully I can put some pictures up asap thumb.gif
