"I have to say that I’m shocked at how much I enjoyed my time with the Thermaltake Core V51, it’s a good looking mid-tower case with a great side window, perfect for showing off your latest Gaming Rig. It cools both CPU and GPU well, even if you’ve opted for a hot potato like our test XFX R9 290X DD Black Edition. Support for water-cooling is also class leading at this price point, and the price? Just £79!"

Overall Verdict: 10

Thermaltakes Core V51 is duidelijk bedoeld voor het zogenoemde enthousiast-segment, zoals gamers en overklokkers. De behuizing biedt, zeker voor een midtower, een zee van ruimte om je hardware onder te brengen. In feite kun je de V51 bijna als kleine fulltower bestempelen. Ruimte voor eatx-borden, grote videokaarten en lange voedingen is er voldoende, maar de behuizing blinkt vooral uit op het gebied van waterkoelmogelijkheden. Grote radiators en dito reservoirs zijn zonder problemen onder te brengen.



  • Zeer ruim
  • Veelzijdige indeling
  • Uitgebreide waterkoelopties

"On the down side... oh, who are we trying to kid with that one? There really is no down side to this chassis, or what it intends to deliver to the customers. With modular systems at play, the option to gut things without destroying the structural integrity, plenty of room for our gear, and the ability to house an E-ATX motherboard without issue, this chassis really sticks in our minds..."

"Jeg blev positivt overrasket hele vejen igennem min test og tid med Core V51 kabinettet. Selvom jeg prøvede at finde noget jeg ikke kunne lide ved kabinettet, lykkedes det mig aldrig. Derfor lander vi på 10/10 hvad angår scoren, og efter som at Core V51 er et gennemtænkt og alt for fedt kabinet – især for vandkølere – kommer der en ”Great Product” award oven i hatten. Det er ikke særlig tit at jeg er så tilfreds med et kabinet som jeg har været med Thermaltake Core V51 – bum!"
