super duper case. very easy and fast to build in. i like fast, so i like this case. but screwing in 3.5" hard drives into the drive bays is kind of a *****

The Snow edition looks good but there are a few things I didn't like about this case. First, the thumb screws that hold the panels and drive cages are complete crap. They are plastic around a silver screw and feel flimsy. Get a set of black steel thumbscrews for your build. Second the drive cages are a little flimsy and are slightly awkward to work with. The two 80mm rear exahust fans are a little strange as well. Would have prefered a 120mm fan mount. The build in the case went well and I am a fan of cube style cases. It's a little large for an ITX case but overall it's not a bad product.

Great little case. Cable management was a breeze (for a mITX case) and managed to fit a push/pull 140mm AIO setup with the included 200mm fan still installed. Build quality is pretty good and a few little extras I liked (cover for the black PCIe mount point and screws). Can't really fault the case for the price.

Great great CASE, my first one, I love it, I wanted a bit smaller, but it would be impossible to fit great stuff in smaller case so this one was a good choice.

This case will fit an EVGA 1070 SC! No need for a reference card. Layout is nice and simple. Case is sturdy and very well put together for the money. Nice tiny mITX case capable of fitting a full size graphics card (is tight and a little difficult but do-able).

Overall very pleased and would buy again. A white LED 200mm fan would do this case justice.

Really enjoyed the case. Wish there was more room between the PSU and MOBO tray. I was able to get my wires tucked in there but its not meant to be done that way.

Look at it. Just look at it! I'm in love! Ahahah Paired with the front 200mm fan with blue LED lights that I got, it gives off an "ice cube/Lich King Arthas/Hackintosh Not Quite a Mac" feel. I'm so glad I went with white in the end, even though I was skeptical at first wondering if black/red would have been more aesthetically pleasing. Nope. I'm very pleased with it. Everything is easy to install, it looks great and there's lots of extra screws, ties and space for cable management. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a mini-ITX configuration.

Aesthetically pleasing but cable management is annoying

Great case, no complaints, it's a small case so cable management can be a bit of a pain, but that's pretty obvious just looking at it. The big fan in the front is awesome, the window on top is great. My only complaint is that (and I read this from some other review so I knew it ahead of time and bought my own) the thumbscrews it comes with are silver with black plastic rings. Kinda cheap, so I just bought a bag of 100 black thumbscrews for $10ish and problem solved. Still though, the case is really quite nice.

The case is one of the parts that I switched multiple times when planning this build. I knew I wanted a Mini-ITX case so that traveling between school and my home wouldn't be too much of a hassle. After reading reviews and watching many YouTube videos comparing the newest cases, I noticed that the Thermaltake Core V1 was consistently getting positive mentions. It was reported to be easy to build in with all of the removable panels, and as a first-time builder, I couldn't agree more.
