    from completed build First PC in Almost a Decade

    When I started my build I knew I wanted a white case, but at the time I was going to go with the NZXT S340 ATX Mid Tower. After browsing the completed builds of PCP everyday for a couple weeks, I saw a beautiful build using the Thermaltake "cube" and fell in love. I love the cube style and the top window is just great. Installing everything in it was pretty straightforward, but the slides for the storage were a little hard to unscrew and pull out. Space was a little tight but it wasn't that hard to fit everything in. Very happy with this case.

    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 *****

    Sleek and spacious - but tiny. This case gets the job done with plenty of room for components and cable management with a solid structure and durability.

    Hello, beautiful! This Mini ITX case may not hold the longest graphics card (255mm with the front grill on, 285mm without), but it's probably the most voluminous case of its class. Cable management is easy given its spacious volume and included zip ties with holes to anchor cables down. Included is a 200mm case fan at the front (and a foam filter), 2 USB 3.0 Type-A ports, separate mic and headphone jacks, a power button, reset button, power LED, and HDD LED.

    The rear sports two 80mm "slots" for additional case fans, the rear motherboard panel, and the slots for the PCIe expansion (most definitely for my graphics card). Bottom panel comes with a filter for the power supply, with the rear panel including the slot where you'd access the switches and plug. ATX power supplies are compatible with this case; 2 rubber bumpers are included with 3 pairs of slots to fit into for different size PSUs. The bottom is basically a dedicated space for the PSU.

    Top panel comes with a glass/plastic window to see the motherboard (which sits horizontally) in all its glory. While the rest of the case is pretty much grill and metal. There are black hand screws holding the panels in place, as well as the 2 HDD caddies included. The front panel is removable only from the inside, with the rest of the panels being interchangeable. The top window is removable for those who want to install a grill/filter for even more airflow.

    Small, compact, and stunning in white is what this cube is all about. It's spacious, yet compact and can definitely do what you need it to. Its airy interior also helps with airflow and maintaining lower temps. Its motherboard and PSU orientation definitely contribute to a beautiful interior. A dual-fan RX 560/GTX 1050 Ti looks surprisingly small in this case. I've got an RX 580 8GB on the way that'll fit a bit more cozy in this case.

    from completed build The Liberator

    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.

    from completed build Hermes

    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.

    The Core V1 is a cute little case. I enjoyed working with it and I love to see it sitting on my desk.

    Despite its small size it wasn't difficult to install all the components, only connecting the last few cables to the motherboard can be hard unless you have really small hands, but that's to be expected. You can put a regular ATX PSU in this case and my 28cm GPU fits with no issues. The lower section of the case has plenty of room for cable management. Airflow is great with a 200mm fan on the front, altough I didn't try the stock fan.
