I am looking to build a Core WP100 Super Tower Chassis. It is my attention to maximize that water cooling ability of this case. It supports a 600mm radiator, however I am unable locate a retailer that has one. Any one can point me in the right direction?
Anyone finding Issues or Making Improvements on the Core W100 & W200 Cases? Please Post Your Comments Here for Discussion I bought a Core W100 a couple months ago and found much room for improvement I will post a series of issues I had and how I resolved them. Please feel free to comment and post your concerns or how you improved or resolved your issues.

just like to make live easier for sb else. it is expensive, it is huge (and i mean HUGE), rock-solid and has (nearly) endless space. but, it is well worth the money if you look for sth like that (btw, if it is to small for you, there is sth even bigger supposed to come your way soon (just google it). anyway, finally last thursday my huge box arrived. considering the damage to the box, the shipping company guys REALLY don't like the size and weight! anyway, it looked worse than it was, a slight dent to one of the door corners from one of the a**holes at ups thinking it is funny to toss ppl's stuff around. maybe trump is right after all!? - just kidding! anyway, the case... awesome! - the guys at tt did a pretty good job to give Lian Li a run for the money. diff. is poss the steel vs. aluminum decision. hey, there has to be a reason that thing weights 50+ lbs! since i have no idea how long i will go on about this case, let me put my relevant findings first: 1- the manual is pretty good - do NOT follow it all the way! 2- if you just remotely think about using the hdd locations on the back of the (off) center wall (the right, looking from the front) - install the whole little bits and pieces as soon as you got the basic case assembled! just in general, put the little plastic pieces for the 6 hdd's on the back in! you will regret if you do not and take out mb, drive cages etc. later to install them! 3- be prepared that many of the screws don't go in easy (my experience)! have a screwdriver with a handle that allows for some serious torque and potentially be prepared to re-thread some screw-holes before anything will work. 4- i use a lot of asrock mobo's - the right-hand side atx stand-off's most likely will be a shot in the dark for you - meaning they are just not there! so. be prepared that your asrock mobo is kinda swinging free on the far right after putting it in. maybe the same for other mobo's as well, i can't tell. it's not a disaster, you just want to consider that when pushing in cables, ram etc on that end - use your fingers to support/ hold up the mb while pushing down... otherwise you might have a mb to replace!!!! 5- this case has 4 usb3 ports at the front panel, most mb's offer 1 port (supporting 2 plugs) - so you might wanna get a usb3 to usb2 adapter cable to utilize the remaining 2 ports! ok, that was the first little 'look out for...' - i have to re-run the whole build in my clouded head also again. i am sure there will be some more things coming back to me. BUT! - don't let any of that put you off considering this box! it is one of the most awesome cases on the market at the moment - if you need supersized. and in terms of value for the money def in the top of the top5!!! cheers, L
Hi all, I am interested in the brand new Core W100. This chassis is really great, it has enough space especially behind the mainboard tray. Before I really purchase this cool super tower, I need the following to know: 1. I want to have everything in red in the new case. Can the blue front strip LED light be changed to a red color? Or do I need to install a different LED strip? (I have seen a video of the W100 on CES2016 with red front LED light, maybe it is a multi color LED strip). 2. I want to store my 3,5" HDDs behind the mainboard tray. Is there enough space to have the HDDs + 120mm fans (15mm or 25mm version) on top? How deep is it from right door to mainboard tray? 3. It is possible to add a bluray drive (175mm length) below the front I/O panel and installng a 480mm radiator 45mm thick + 25mm fans on the top? Or do I need to insert the bluray drive two bays below? One bay below won't work. There is one 1bay plate (W-F) missing, which prevents you to shuffle the 5.25" drives as you want! Thermaltake please add an additional 1bay plate (W-F) to the W100 package! 4. Are there dust filters available for the front? I really appreciate any help anyone can provide.
