The Thermaltake Core V51 Mid-Tower does not have a flashy exterior but the simple aesthetics should appeal to certain segments of the population. At 540 x 236 x 560mm (21 x 9 x 22") it is smaller than many of the cases we have seen released to the market but still has room for an eATX board inside as well as a Morry sized cooler. The cooling design is quite flexible, in several places you can choose to mount multiple 120/140mm fans or a single monstrous 200mm if you possess one; those who prefer watercooling are able to place 420mm rads in two places or smaller ones in numerous other places. [H]ard|OCP loved the performance and flexibilty of this case, as well as the $110 asking price, which together were enough to win a coveted Gold Award.
"Thermaltake has some very lofty goals set for its new mid-tower case. Its primary goal is to deliver outstanding cooling performance which is always high on our priority list as well. Form and function both seem to be well served in this new Core V51 model as its performance profile is not hard on the eyes."
