3.0 out of 5 stars Great Features, Adequate Construction, Poor Design December 17, 2010
By tbf2010
Verified Purchase
I purchased this case as a gift to house a new i7 system. The case was shipped via UPS and arrived with no damage, attributed to the good job on packaging the case for shipment. The case comes with no Power Supply and two fans, a 120MM Thermaltake branded exhaust fan in the rear, and a 200MM situated at the top rear of the unit. The 120MM fan is a major disappointment, not worth the plastic used in its construction. I replaced it with an old Antec fan I had, then a Scythe S-FLEX-E. The 200MM fan at the top moves a good volume of air at a low RPM and low static pressure. I threw another S-FLEX at the top, then side mounted a third. Temps rarely exceeded 50c under load (Compared to ~60 with stock cooling), even in these hot Florida Summers. After these cooling upgrades, the performance of the case is much better.

Installation of components was as expected, no more difficult than any other PC I've assembled (Though not as easy as working with a full tower case with a removable tray). The absolute worst "feature" of this case is the tool-less Card Retention System. These are supposed to make installing expansion cards easier/quicker (I guess, but how often is one installing / removing expansion cards? And how much time is really saved by fiddling with an ineffective frustrating plastic retention system versus ye olde phillips head screwdriver? Yet I digress...). At any rate, this "system" consists of tabbed plastic clips that slide on a toothed platform. The idea is you can squeeze a clip down and the plastic teeth will keep it mounted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Case October 4, 2010
Verified Purchase
I love this case, it has a huge fan on the top, my old case had a fan on the front and it sucked in dirt and dog hair, hopefully I will be able to keep this case cleaner. I love the Top Mounted HDD Docking Station, you can plug in a hard drive on the top for extra storage or to put your backup files or maybe your music or pictures, I find this case has so many helpful things. Being a Disabled American Veteran I find that having the USB ports at the top and not at the bottom easier to access. I am running four fans, the big fan on top is a little noisy but not any louder than any other fan. My system runs faster and cooler, I upgraded to Windows 7, and I upgraded to an AMD Phenom processor with 4GB DDR3 memory, I am very happy with this case and my new system. If you are looking for a good, reliable, and unique case give this one a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing case! March 24, 2011
By Jacob
I was a bit worried about this case at first but it has exceeded my expectations. Amazing quality and build that couldn't be beat. Who cares about a manual? No one needs it. Who cares if its in 300 languages and is hardback. I only had two minor complaints. The hard drive cage is a bit of a hassle. But once i got it out i came into the problem most others have with this case. I thought i needed a screwdriver with a magnet because the holes behind a layer of metal. But i just put the screw on the screw driver and flipper the cage upside and and went up with the screw. I use brains... For me it works great. I have an i7 with a massive Coolermaster hyper 212. As for the clearance issue with the fan and the mother board wasn't an issue either. I have a motherboard where one of the heatsinks stick out very far. But there was still room to keep the big fan. It only comes with two fans. Which is kind of a bummer but if your building your own computer you know to get your own fans. I have 3 thermaltake 120's on hand so they work. The airflow is good, everything stays below 50c under load. If you put a fan on the door then your cards will stay nice and cool because its in the best place possible, right there on top of the card. I have 2 460GTX's and they stay under 45c. Plus the HDD reader is a good thing to have handy but make sure you enable AHCI mode in your bios and make sure your computer has the right credentials to boot into AHCI mode or else it will just boot into bluescreen. But that is easily fixed by going into regedit. There is a guide online. As for the tooless use i can't say I had a problem with that. Screws are best but the clips work just as well.

Blacked Out
HDD Dock
Fan Placement
Plenty of room for fans

HDD Cage CAN be a hassle
It's hard to hide wires

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case for the money January 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
Well built, plenty of room, lots of airflow, quiet fans.

Compared to other cases in this price range, this case is awesome.

Edit: After using this case for some time, I've rated it even higher. Dust is filtered out by the front panel, all parts are kept cool and in perfect working order. The power supply filter was hard to get to, I replaced it with a filter that mounts outside of the case. I also blocked off the top vent to keep a positive case pressure (keeping even more dust out)

I liked it so much, I have ordered another one to replace a much more expensive case that is dust magnet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cooler! July 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
The Thermaltake V6 isn't the prettiest case made, nor is it the best constructed, but man, can this keep the heat at bay. I've built systems since the mid-eighties, but this case seems to have the best cross flow of all of them. The top comes with a 200mm draw fan, the back comes with a 120mm draw. I installed a 120 intake on the front, and another on the side. The 200mm fan sits over the CPU (i7 2600k with a 212 cooler),and the back draw is directly in back of the chip. The CPU idles at 30degrees C, and it hit 62 degrees once when I played Crysis for a few hours. The GPUs ( 2 bridged 560s) idle at almost the same as the CPU, and have gone up as high as 65 degrees C. I do have to admit that with 2 fans per GPU, the chip cooler fan, and the four case fans, the noise reminds me of living in back of a turbo aircraft, but earphones solve that problem, and to heck with complaining neighbors.
