Thermaltake Core V41 Mid-Tower Chassis


Looking the Core V41 dead in the face, we find the entire front panel is steel mesh with small, round holes to allow air through. At the top is the I/O panel, followed by two removable bay covers, and the Thermaltake name and logo near the bottom.


As for the I/O panel, to the left there is the microphone and headphone 3.5mm HD audio jacks, a small reset button, and a red HDD activity LED. In the center is the blue-ringed power button, and there is a pair of USB 3.0 connections at right.


As the front curves back to meet the top, the front bezel stops, and you run into the steel top with a plastic dust filter that is held in place with magnetic strips on all sides. Under the filter, there is a large honeycomb mesh section with slots and holes to accept either spacing for radiators screws.


From the left of the Core V41, we find thick plastic used at the top, down the front, and even the feet at the bottom help to keep that chunky look. As for the steel side panel, the majority of it has been removed to fit this large window that offers a view of everything inside.


As we get to the back of the chassis, we find passive ventilation at the top, above the rear I/O, and a 120mm rear exhaust fan with water cooling holes and grommets just under it. We also see there are not just eight slots, but an 8+1 setup for a controller to run vertically. Then, of course, the PSU goes in the hole at the bottom.


The right side of the chassis mimics the shape of the window we found on the left, but rather than just a line for styling, this panel has been bumped out by 5mm to add extra room for wiring.


Now, looking at the bottom of the Core V41, we find those chunky feet also have rubber pads for grip and protection, and the entire center is covered with a removable plastic dust filter to take care of the PSU and optional floor fans.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
