[Official] Thermaltake Core V1 Owners' Club - Page 135

post #1341 of 1869
Hi everyone! Thanks to this forum I managed to build my PC with this awesome case without any hassle. I just have sort of a general concern. I noticed most builds have the window on top, but my GPU blows out the top of it(GTX 1060 Gigabyte Windforce OC). So I opted for putting the windowed panel on the left side in front kf the GPU. Is this a bad idea? Since I read it's not good to cover the front of the GPU. Also, here are some pics. Nothing fancy but I love it.

A couple things:
1. I wouldn't be too concerned with it blowing air out the top since the main 200mm will push that air out the back. I would place the window on top and have a vent on the side so that your card can get fresh air (More important than the exhaust in my opinion).
2. If you are concerned with that then maybe use the window for the HHD side? So you can have a vent on the side and top of your GPU?

Wow now I feel pretty stupid since I don't know why I thought that putting the vent on that side would place the grill on the bottom. Thanks for pointing that out. Now I have even better airflow.

Added some interior lighting. Its all adjustable and the colors come out great. I am using this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FQ9UQOY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and just routing the usb end to an internal usb port off the 2.0 header on my Mobo. Probably better options out there but this was cheap and bright.



Still a mess inside:

Hey guys I love this case. Recently returned a pny gtx 1060 due to issues, and now I got a msi gaming 1060...and it's crazy how much bigger the msi gtx1060 is. I ran into some fitment issues where I had to use the dremel. I got the tx3 cooler and just put two 92mm noctua fans on the tx3 and two noctua 80mm fans for the exhaust:




Here is where I had to dremel, just a little section of metal right above the 8 pin power:



No way is that power connector going to fit without cutting out the top area a little bit. I also found that with my cpu heat sink, since I can't install from the top, I had to remove the front panel, remove the big intake fan in the front, and remove the power switch panel to be able to get it in. But it finally went in fine. Look how much it sticks out with the front panel off...





Haven't really gotten to test the card out but the system is very quiet.

Running a i5 3570s, asus itx, 16gb ddr3, 750gb hard drive, msi gaming x 1060 6gb

Glad you managed to get your MSI 1060 in there took me atleast 15-20 mins of head scratching and swearing but I then had a revelation, to get mine in I removed the I/O plate from the card itself and placed it where it would eventually end up in the case that way you get a little more wiggle room with the card and I could slide it into the case from the front its a good job this card only requires a single Power connector or else I would have had to get the dremmel out myself thumb.gif

I had to do the same thing with my build when I installed a MSI 980 4GD5T OC Edition. The connector fits better now that I replaced the PSU with a Corsair SF600. The modular cables were ribbon cables and I was able to bend them much lower that before.

Check two of my threads here:

hi , i tried putting the windows on the side, when gaming the temp seems to be a lot higher , in my case its 10 C , its because the hot air that's supposed to be blown out gets trapped, or even reflected to the heat source ie your gpu
post #1349 of 1869
Ok, so I made my own little beast right here (sorry for my bad English, I'm from Chile)!

Specs

Case: Thermaltake Core V1 (of course hehe)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VIII Impact
CPU: i7-6700k @ 4.6 ghz 24/7
Cooler: DEEPCOOL Captain 120 EX
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GBx2 @3000 Mhz
GPU: EVGA GTX 1070 FTW
Hard Drive: Kingston HyperX Savage 960GB
PSU: Cooler Master V Series 850 Watts with modded cables
Monitor: Asus VG248QE
Keyboard: Corsair K70 (red lights)
Mouse: Xornet II

Bought some Sleeved Cables from CableMod (this are really cool), and also configurated them to be shorter than PSU stocks (cable managmente was a ***** xD)

I changed all the fans for Red LED ones so they can match the colour scheme smile.gif

These are some photos! (it has some little duste because I assemble this machine time to time... in like 2 weeks or so, because I had to wait for cables, fans and the GPU)











(in this picture you can see how TIGHT is the GPU)

I'm very happy with this little machine smile.gif

I would opt for the window on the HD side personally.

If you look close you can actually see that I chambered my GPU on it's own from the CPU/Radiator air flow. My GPU draws in air from the side panel and blows it out its sides being the front/rear/top/bottom of the case. My CPU airflow goes from rear to front.
