Case Build & Finished Product
Since we opted not to use optical drives or a bay reservoir, the front of the chassis did not change in our build. We also made mention that the bottom was the only place with dust filtration earlier. We were mistaken as the front offers individual filters for each section of the removable panels in the middle.
Even opting to use a longer than normal video card and an ATX system to test in the Core W100, it takes it like a champ. We have a ton of leftover room, and even with triple loops installed and all the components needed to go along with it, you will be hard pressed to fill this chassis. If you do have plans of grandeur and do not think everything can be housed here, this is why Thermaltake offers the P100 pedestal.
We found no issues in the back of the chassis either. The rear I/O cover snapped right into place, and the video card lined right up as well. As for the PSU, once supported with the rubber spacers, the screws line right up and it is easily mounted.
Wire management is easy in a chassis this large. We did find that the 24-pin and 8-pin were stretched to fit this chassis, so we do advise thinking about extension cables, or making sure you buy a PSU with the longest leads possible.
With the Core W100 all back together at this point, we like what we have, even if just using the system and passive air cooling at the moment. Only the PSU, video card, and the AIO are cooling this chassis, and we found that temperatures were pleasant, even without filling the chassis with fans.
With power now delivered to the system, we like the look of the blue LEDs popping through the mesh around the logo, as well as the thin ring of blue around the power button. As to the noise produced from the chassis, well, there is none. Any noise that comes from the Core W100 is based solely on your choices of components and fans, so you can tune it to your preferred level.
While we were not sent the P100, we made sure to at least include an image to show what you can do with it. It is designed to be opened from the sides, offering plenty of room for additional water cooling support. It even offers a centralized PSU location if you need more power, or just want to move a serious PSU down here to power the entire build.
