Even with a high-wattage PSU stretching to 200mm in length, it still leaves plenty of space for cable management. Moreover, two 360mm radiators can be installed on top of the chassis, delivering superior cooling performance.

Great Ventilation

The Core X2’s unparalleled cooling ability offers fan brackets with various mounting points to support any type of gaming system that can be accommodated , including DIY/AIO liquid-cooling systems and air-cooling units. Two 120mm fan are preinstalled on the front and rear to reassure and guarantee the flow of aeration. The fan brackets can either be adjusted for 120mm, 140mm, or 200mm fans on the top panel, while there is room for 120mm and 140mm fans on the side panel.

Thanks to the removable 2.5”/3.5” drive device racks, there is plenty of flexibility to gain the maximum interior space when needed for advanced cooling performance or liquid systems build.

"The flexibility of the Thermaltake Core X2 Cube chassis is really what is selling me on it. The TT Core X2 is versitile enough that you can run an insane number of fans, as many as 22 120mm fans, or as many as six radiators of varying sizes!"

Legit Bottom Line: The Thermaltake Core X2 is a really slick looking and flexible case. If you’re looking to pick up a versatile mATX chassis, the Thermaltake Core X2 cube chassis is a great choice.

Final Thoughts

From the high level, I quite like the Thermaltake Core x2.  It delivers quite a bit of case for the money, and has a pretty good execution in general.  There are some details that felt overlooked and the paint quality could be better, but, I don’t feel as though it will cause too big of a problem in normal use. I approve of this case, and will give it 5 ‘nanners. If you’re looking for a good, relatively cheap, and spacious watercooling case, this is it.
