Thermaltake recently launched the Core V71, which is an attractive full tower case with a modular drive bay design and plethora of cooling options. The cold rolled steel (SPCC) chassis is all black with large mesh front and top panels. A large side panel window and LED fans show off the internals.

The full tower Core V71 measures 23" x 9.1" x 22" (583x230x560mm) and supports E-ATX motherboards, 8 PCI slots, 185mm tall CPU coolers, up to 400mm long graphics cards (with hard drives removed, 310mm with the drives installed), two 5.25" drive bays, and eight 3.5" or 2.5" hard drives. The drive cages are tool-less and can be completely removed from the case. In fact, users can take out the drive cages and support bar to completely rid the PC of drive bays. Alternatively, users can utilize two hidden drive bays on the back of the motherboard tray to maintain a clean design without completely sacrificing 3.5" storage.

The case has a spot for a standard ATX PSU in the bottom of the case and numerous rubber grommets for routing and hiding cables behind the motherboard tray.

As far as cooling, users can go with water cooling radiators and/or air cooling. The cooling possibilities work out as follows:

  • Top:  2 x 200mm / 140mm or 3 x 120mm
  • Front:  2 x 200mm / 140mm or 3 x 120mm
  • Rear:  1 x 140mm / 120mm
  • Bottom:  2 x 120mm

That works out to as many as nine 120mm fans or four 200mm fans and three 120mm fans if you opt for air cooling. On the water cooling front, users could put as many as two 420mm (or smaller) radiators, one 240mm radiator, and one 120mm radiator. This would be a good use case (heh) for NZXT's Kraken G10 GPU water cooling mount with allows users to cool their GPU(s) using CPU-style closed loop water coolers in 120mm and 240mm varieties or even going all out with a custom water cooling loop for every component in the system. There are a lot of possibilities with this full tower case!

In all, the Core V71 appears to be a really nice full tower option with decent looks, tool-less bays, and ample cooling mounts. The case will be available soon with an MSRP of $160 in the US. For a new full tower that's not bad and has my interest!

I like how they dig up the 8 year old Raptor X for the photo OP.

It would be cool if they made a modern hard drive with a window.
