My first thought when I unpacked the new Core X2 from Thermaltake was ‘they’ve sent me the wrong case’.
I didn’t think something this sire could be classed as small form factor, but because of its horirontal motherboard tray it can only accommodate m ATX or mini-ITX boards. Also it’s a little smaller than a standard ATX, case so I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt.
On the plus side this is the only-one of this month’s cases that could possibly house one of Thermaltake’s 360mm water-cooling radiators. In fact, it has a pair of mounting rails in the roof that could take two of them.
And speaking of cooling, this thing has vents all over, apart from the huge jxerspex peep-hole on the side. Behind the rest of the panels are magnetically attached dust filters to keep your components unclogged.
Nothing is set in stone here, most of the parts are held in place by thumbscrews, allowing you to easily change the internal layout. The size of the case, however, remains both a major plus and its biggest downfall. The ample space makes building a PC inside it a breeze and alkms you to max out your mATX build, but if you’re going tt> end up with a big machine anyway, why’ not go for a versatile ATX setup instead?
