Thermaltake Core V41 Mid-Tower Chassis Review (Page 6)

Case Build and Finished Product


Leaving everything intact, as we found it, we were still able to complete the build without a single clearance issue. There was plenty of room for the AIO, the card fits snugly, but went in fine, and since we had no plans for a fan in the floor, there was plenty of room to get everything wired up easily.


Even with the ODD bays in, there is still plenty of room for this 360mm AIO, and the fans. Also, notice how far away from the motherboard the rails in the roof permit use. Wiring, memory, and even motherboard heat sinks are of no concern for this installation.


The dust shield snapped right into place, but when it came to the video card, we did have to flex the back slightly to align the holes. As for the PSU, it almost falls right into place on the rubber pads, and sits ready to accept screws.


While this could be better, we did find wiring the chassis is a pretty simple and speedy procedure. Even though we added a fan hub to power all of the fans, we still could have packed much more in here since the panel is pushed out, and gives us even more room to deal with the wiring.


With everything now all ready to go, and the panels back in place, we find that without the use of an ODD bay, the only thing that changes about this chassis is the view through the window, which affords a great view of all of the components.


With things powered on, and the hub offering PWM control, there is 32dB of noise at a foot away during idle, but keep in mind, we are hearing five fans now, and not just the two. When loading the system up, we found the PWM kept everything quiet with the chassis fans, and it was our cooler that actually overpowered them. As for lighting, the ring around the power button is blue, but dim, and there is only the occasional flicker of red from the HDD activity LED.
