Thermaltake Core V1 mini-ITX Chassis Packaging
The Thermaltake Core V1 mini-ITX chassis comes packaged inside a box that should handle just about everything that the shippers can throw at it, at least within reason. The front of the Thermaltake Core V1 packaging features a decent looking image of what the mini-ITX chassis looks like and what we can expect to find once we open up the packaging. There isn’t much in the way of information on the front other than the Thermaltake branding and the Core V1 name.

Spinning the packaging around once again to the other front (either side can easily work as the front), we can see an exploded view of the Core V1 mini-ITX chassis. While it doesn’t have the greatest detail, it does give us an idea of the individual components that make up the Core V1 chassis.

    There are 2 hidden 2.5″ bays, so you can run a total of 2 HDDs + 2 SSDs, which would make use of the 4 SATA ports

    Thanks! this is the most helpful ! do you think i can use this cooler in v1? say… with just 1 fan instead of 2? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181089 i think with only 1 fan it should fit in there…. or do i have to replace the 200mm fan that comes with the chassis with the fan from corsair? sorry with all the questions 🙁

    Do you reckon 11.6″ graphics cards would just clear the switch panel and just fit without modding the front panel?

    My Core V1 came with plastic feet, not rubber. Also you can mount a 2.5″ drive on the back of each hard drive cage. Also you can mount an additional 2 drives on the mesh panel by moving it to the top position and using the attached rubber gromets. this brings the total supported drives to 6 (4×3.5″, 2×2.5″)
