Thermaltake Core V1 Mini-ITX SFF Chassis Review (Page 2)

Thermaltake may be using a plain cardboard box to house this chassis, but boy do they know how to fill up empty space. There are thick bands cross the top, middle, and the bottom of the front, with a grid pattern filling the rest of it. Along with the Core V1 naming, there is also a large rendering of the chassis to see.


This side of the box offers all of the naming at the top, followed by a smaller rendering of the Core V1. The bulk of this panel is taken up with explanations of the ventilation, expansion, and the support this chassis offers, all of which is covered in twelve different languages.


The back of the packaging is nearly identical to what was offered on the other side of the box, but this time, a large exploded rendering of the chassis is given, so you can visualize how this design goes together and functions.


This last panel also mimics its opposing panel, but rather than covering features under the naming and tiny rendering, this time the space is filled with the same specifications we just went over.


To protect this Core V1, on the inner most layer of protection, both sides of the clear window have plastic applied to it to prevent abrasions, and then the entire chassis is wrapped in a plastic liner to protect the paint finishes. The last line of defense is the thick Styrofoam caps used above and below the chassis to keep prevent major dents in the product. As for our sample, this packaging proved once again that it is more than capable of delivering a chassis in terrific shape.
