Thermaltake Core V51 Mid-Tower Chassis
Most of the front, except for the I/O panel and the Tt logo at the bottom, is made of steel mesh that is flat across the front, and it isn't until it curves at the top or bottom that there is any real shape to it. Under the I/O panel, there are two removable covers on the 5.25" bays.
In that front I/O panel, Thermaltake starts at the left with the microphone and headphone jacks, a small reset button, a much smaller HDD activity LED, and a large reset button in the center. To the right of the power button, the panel offers a pair of USB 3.0 ports for easy connectivity.
As we got to the top of the Core V51, we did take the top magnetic dust cover and shift it over some. The filter sits in the slightly lowered fan section, but along with the large holes in the mesh, there are tons of fan options with all the grooves cut in the top.
As we take in the left side of the Core V51, we find a very large window that will afford a view of everything, including the PSU, the motherboard, drives, and even any water cooling you may choose to install. The rest of the steel panel mates well with both the top and front plastic sections, as well as along the bottom where we see the chunky feet carry on the rounded styling.
Since the top offers water cooling holes with grommets, that means thicker radiators will fit above the rear I/O and exhaust fan. Also, we find a cord tender on the back to the right of the eight expansion slots, above the PSU and its filter.
As for the right side of the chassis, it is basically a large expanse of black steel. The bonus here is that the panel offers a few more millimeters of space with the bump out that is pressed into this panel; this will give you much more room to put all of the wiring behind it.
Under the chassis, we find the large plastic feet are connected side to side, and are very sturdy. With the rubber pads on the feet, this chassis will not slide around much at all. Between the feet is a pair of dust filters that split in the middle. One goes out the back, and the one at the front does require the bezel to be removed to access the filter.
