I already contact http://my.thermaltake.com/csTech.aspx2 weeks ago ,still waiting for reply tho 

 

overall its pretty nice case and I'm going to buy some led strips to make them looks matched with my red-black theme , also maybe some DIY dust filter for the side

As everyone might know, the sides, top and buttom are all interchangeable.

 

The front also have the right dimenstions to turn around to fit the alignment you choose of your top and buttom.

 

In order to be able to turn the front though, we need to modify two things:

1) For the front to actually be able to turn we just have to cut off the two little plastic "pins" placed in the middle of the top and buttom of the front.

2) Make new notches for the front IO panel in the metal chassis.

 

Why would I want to turn my cabinet?

I wanted to view my entire motherboard and gfx through the side window, and not see the PSU.

 

I have further changes in mind, but am currently waiting for some custom watercooling items to show up in the middle of january or so (full motherboard waterblock and such ;))

 

The AIO watercooling installed now (Corsair H80i), is just untill the other items shows up.

 

Sorry about the "order" of my images. Thought I could rearrange them.

A follow up to my previous post, where I made it possible to flip the case on its side, and also move the front io-panel and turn the front itself to be oriented the right way.

 

I still need ram-block, which will eliminate the crossing White tube, but I'm getting closer.

If you look closely,  you can see my Aquaro controller in its house below the PSU. (in the second image)

Thank you. The pump Mount is just my Mount-io/panel prop. Can call it an advanced card-board test. It was made from some clear acrylic scrap pieces, glued together and painted with a filt-marker, hehe.

(would be nice if we could post thumbnails, which could be clicked for large size - and decide that we don't want images to auto-turn!)

I have some Black acrylic incoming for a proper mounting and need to shorten and make some new threads in the original EK screws for that pump-base, which will let me screw it Down properly - The original EK screws have female thread in the (bottom)-end of the screws used to tighten top to the pump-housing. The female threads is used to attach the "feet" to the pump.  ;)

 

Center piece, which ended up being hard to see untill i get that crossing tube out of the way, is the "small" motherboard + everything water-block:

Here are some pre images of the block.

Nice Builds everyone.  I just bought a Core V1 (referb) for below $50 shipped. Not sure of its outcome just yet but I couldn't beat that price.

Yea, it's a very cheap case with lots of possibilities. Just a shame it's not shipped with the option to move/turn front io-panel and front 'panel' now that alle sides, including the bottom, is perfectly interchangeable.

I got my Core V1 yesterday and for being a refurbished case, I can not see anything out of place.  Looks perfect! :)  I am doing a build for my step-son that will be running a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Mobo, a AMD A10-7700K apu, and a XFX R9270X.  Notice the size difference between the Core V1 and the V71.  My Core V71 looks massive compared to the tiny little Core V1. And yes....Tt Dude approves!  :D

Wow, that V71 is huge! And I thought the V1 a big mini-itx case, heh. Guess they call anything mini-itx cases these days.

Hi

 

I'm interested in the Core V1, but I have a quick question. The max CPU cooler height is 140mm...but is it flush to the top cover (window panel, which is a bit thicker than the ventilated ones), or there is a bit of clearance space between the 140mm and the cover? I have a old ZALMAN CNPS 9700 lying around that is 142mm (as per the ZALMAN specs) which may fit the case.

 

Sorry if a similar question has already been answered in another post.

 

Thanks.

I got this case recently and I'm having trouble connecting the case mounted fan to my motherboard.

 

list of gear:

 

  1. Thermaltake core v1 Mini-ITX Case (with 12 v 3 pin built in fan)
  2. MSI Z87i AC Motherboard - 4 pin pwm connection (SYSFAN1)
  3. An ATX PSU with 3 pin fan (unknown voltage)
  4. core i7 with heatsink + fan

 

 

-

 

there is a pin set for the cpu fan

and one spare pin set for SYSFAN1  which I assume can be for either case fans or PSU fan,

 

Is there a splitter/adapter that any one can recommend that i can run the psu fan and case fan off of the sysfan1 pins?

also will it effect the voltage i can get from  the motherboard?

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Emji

Hi guys! I did a V51 build in 2015, and had a ton of fun with it. For 2016 I'm looking to get into something different, so I'm going smaller with this build in the V1. Since you have already conquered the challenges of the V1, I wanted to run my build guesstimate by you, and see if there is anything that stands out as glaringly incompatible. The only item I *think* may have any sort of clearance issue is the CPU cooler. I've read that the V8 GTS is a space-hogging beast, but I've also read that its performance is worth the space issues. Anyone having issues with the stock case fans? I plan to stick with the 200mm front fan & 2x 80mm rear exhaust fans for the moment. How is heat management with this chassis? I tend to over-cool my PC (My V51 build has 7x case fans, PSU fan, 2x motherboard fans (thanks ASUS), RAM cooling fan (Corsair), and 2x GPU fans, plus closed-loop liquid cooler for CPU); I know its overkill, but I like my under load temp's to stay frosty (highest temp during marathon Payday 2 & HOTS sessions has been 29degC). Please let me know what you think, before I go from building something exciting to breaking something expensive. ;) â€‹

Nice setup!!

 

Your PSU is kinda high for a single card setup, though i'm running a 750 so meh... LOL  I don't think you will have issues with cooling.  But, you are limited on fan locations though you can try and install fans on the perforated panels... I thought about it.  This is going to be my setup which I think will blow people out of the water.

 

There will be a lot of customizing the frame... so let's be clear with that.  But on to the parts list.

 

Gigabyte G1 Gaming 5 Z170N

6700K

GSkill Trident Z 3200 mhz 16gig

PNY SSD

And for the cou de gras - EVGA 980 ti k|ngp|n... yes, that is right, I will fit that in there if it kills me.

Then a completely custom water cooling setup, some bling, sleeving, and some fans... LOL  There is probably a lot more, but can't remember off hand.

 

Stay tuned!
