6 case fans ?! Even with a Titan that's got to be overkill ... nice case though

It's a truly wonderful case, Thermaltake did a great job with it. Sub-£50 is a steal.

Is there an option without the window?

Maffew

Is there an option without the window?


I don't think there is, but the case is fully modular so you can move that panel to the top or the other side if that bothers you on this particular side.
I have been waiting for this case to drop sub-50, and grabbed one immediately this morning.

It looks nice. I'm toying with the idea of small form factor water cooling with 2 graphics cards.
This looks like it could do the job, though might need pump and reservoir mounted outside the case.

Thought at first it was a microwave

Will this fit a hyper 212+?

Looks a good deal, recently spent £65 on the Bitfenix Prodigy M and this looks as good (though I assume no space for an optical drive?)

Why do Amazon always seem to get product dimensions wrong? They list this as 40 x 40 x 50 cm whereas Thermaltake site has it as 33.2 x 32.0 x 42.4. Quite a large discrepancy if you ask me.

Hi Hotuk Dealers, this is my first time post i like the case but wanted to know what the differances between this one and the one i found on ebuyer.com accept the price??

ebuyer.com/671…ALg

This case is OK not as good as it looks though.

The manual doesn't tell you jack about moving sections around leaving you to your own devices.

The quality is what I'd expect from thermal take which is below average and could be a lot better in areas such as the fan mounting rails.

The case is also a lot bigger then it initially looks so I would make sure you actually measure your desk beforehand.

Even though its not great it has good clearance and good modular fan filters everywhere but the front and is a interesting case to build in but I wouldn't recommend it for the most part.

V1 is an older model and a smaller model too.
If you do not want to fit in a full size GPU then v1 will be a good option.

Overall size internally and restricted cooling options?

Yes and no. I have about six full sized fans in my case but set them all to the lowest RPM setting to reduce the noise.

Same for me, I thought it was an oven ! Hahaha

it's a great cube case the build quality is solid for the price but the big selling point is it's versatility, you can literally move all the panels around in what ever order and it comes with brackets that can have the potential for great water cooling and they aren't fixed you could mount a rad on what ever side you want.

Great case! I built my HTPC in one and it was a pleasure to work with, very modular design with plenty of places to hide cables.

Here's mine:

The stand I have it on is just a generic monitor stand I bought from a charity shop, it really makes the case look alot cooler I think.

That's a Corsair A70 cpu cooler which is huge and usually too big for micro-atx cases.

A lot of people use the external watercooling grommets for this and then mount a pump res combo unit mounted to the back. Which supervising looks really good.

The V1 is the Mini-ITX case, it's much smaller than the V21 which is designed around Micro ATX boards.

There's a whole range of Core models, V1 is a tiny cube, V21 is a larger cube, V31, V41, V51 and V71 are all aimed at full-sized motherboards (the greater the number, the larger the case).

Have you bought a motherboard yet?

Hmm. That's pretty ugly.

Not a bad looking case. Similar to my Fractal Design Node 804 by the looks of things.

Looks hooge, but I must admit I do like the boxiness of it.

Doesn't seem to be anywhere for a blu-ray drive.

Is that a mini-ITX mobo?

It's a Gigabyte F2A88XM-DS2, which is a short micro-atx motherboard. The case will take any micro-atx or mini-itx motherboard.

£44.22 here but only have 2 left at time of posting



That's a V1. The deal is for a V21.

Thanks. Can the case be oriented on it's side like that with its own feet?

It looks great but why on earth did they let the perspex go down that low. I want to hide all of those pesky cables from sight!

It's not on it's side. If you look at the stock images, the motherboard tray is always facing up. He must have simple attached the front panel 90 degrees and fitted the side window on the top. It's impressive the case let's you do that.

That is butt ugly.

Thats better !

Guys (& gals) considering building a mid range gaming pc but as I have used macs for the last six years I'm out of touch with specs etc.
1. Would this be a good case
2. What gubbins would you recommend I stick in it? It would be on nearly 24/7 (in sleep mode) if that makes any difference?


Carrie.F

Thats better !



That's an awfully big case for a Pi.

Lush, If it stays around this price in months to come I will use it for my next build, thanks OP, Heat. This case is art.

Not been in the game for a while, can some one tell me the cost for a semi decent gaming PC using this as I don't have space in the house for a rig so im looking for something small..

It's back up to £54.38
