Thermaltake Core W100 Super-Tower Chassis Review (Page 5)

Part of what is found in the hardware box, we have here. There is the trio of HDD cages along with four plastic trays for the back. There are two bags with the plastic feet we chose to use, and bags of the clips that are used to hang the drive trays behind the motherboard tray. Thermaltake also ships a parts sorter box to keep all of the extra screws in that are not used initially in the build.


Since this is a beast of a chassis, with a shipping weight of seventy-five pounds, and adding in all of the water cooling gear along with the main components, this chassis may end up as something you will never want to try and lift to move. To help with this, Thermaltake supplies the option to install these four casters so that you can roll it into another room if need be, and save your back from trying to carry it around.


We have spoken about the radiator supports quite a bit up to this point, and these are what we have been talking about. There are three of them, and via a couple of tabs at either end that align with holes in the chassis frame along with a pair of slide locks on each support, they can be installed and removed to allow users to access them or to clean the components that hang from them much easier.


We took this image before the build process so that you could see both the front I/O panel and its wiring, as well as the LED bracket that goes on the front of the chassis. We covered the I/O, but as to the LED setup, a Molex plug powers a strip of LEDs much like what NZXT and BitFenix are offering.


All of the screws, brackets, and additional goodies all come in individual bags. Each of them is also labeled to be sure that as you follow the build instructions, you can be sure you have the proper hardware in hand to mount it.

As for the instructions, we had to follow an online version due to the timing, but you will receive a full book. From our experience, there is nothing left out in the instructions, and it is clearly easy to follow, all you need is some time, patience, and a Phillips screwdriver to get the chassis completed.
