3 out of 5 eggsDecent case, a little hasty on construction

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very complete, comes with every screw imaginable
Easy hard drive bay locks, very strong plastic, lasted me 6 yrs
Solid airflow, not a very big case but functional
5? 3.5" bays and 4 5.25" bays, unheard of.
PCI slots in the back are very easy to manage.
USB 3.0 front port headers are nice and HD AUDIO is not at all touched.
Metal construction, fairly sturdy
Insanely cheap esp at the time: bought it for $25 on a sale.

Cons: Front port soldering is very hasty. While audio works extremely well, USB headers will interfere and create very audible static and screeching noises in your audio device. I haven't returned it because of this reason since I use the back ports anyway.
Little stoppers on the bottom fall off easily
Lack of wire management room.
PCI slots can't be reattached, in fact there's too few of these slots
Sound reverberates through out the case, not the tightest fit
I/O slot in the back is not a perfect fit

Other Thoughts: There are a lot of caveats to owning this case, but at the price point it is now, I wouldn't recommend buying it as there are better mid tower cases. The best advantage this case has is the massive amount of drives you can stash in there, and they include these very useful HDD locks that you can just literally hotswap drives with. However, because of this, there is literally no wire management room, and the back can't really taper off any of your PSU wires whatsoever.
It is a fairly small mid-tower case, but still big in respect to mATX cases from DELL and ASUS. The metal construction adds a nice feel to it, the only plastic being the pane and the front, the metal, whilst on the flimsy side, is much stronger than brittle plastic, and at this price point is very nice. The airflow is very good, thanks to many holes in the case, so any positive airflow allows extremely fast cooling. The holes however, do let a lot of dust in if you have negative airflow and lets a huge amount of sound out, although I'm sure this is the consequence of the XFX HD6870 fan.
Pretty much everything is included, besides zip ties, a niec thing to have.
My biggest complaint however, is that the soldering is hit or miss. My friend has this case and does not have this problem, but my case has massive interference between the USB3.0 header in the front and audio bus. Recording will reveal a high pitched screeching when an input device is plugged in and static is always audible when you plug a flash drive in. Not a deal breaker for me as I use the back ports and for $25 it was reasonable to me to have defects but this was a nuisance. Audio bus is high quality otherwise.

4 out of 5 eggsV3 Case

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: PRICE, plenty of room for storage devices (bays). I am running four fans. ASUS motherboard, 650 power supply. Two burners, three hard drives.

Cons: The steel seems thin, but has held up great. Extra thin fans only on top. Would like bigger window.

Other Thoughts: For the price can not be beat.

3 out of 5 eggsBent in shipping

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks great
Easy enough to work with as a beginner
Easy to remove face which was an issue with my old case.

Cons: Bent in shipping
Box had a big picture of a computer on the side which i would say is theft prone
One of the HDD keys broke and when fixed it just didn't work
.

Other Thoughts: Was built alright but still gave off a cheap feel but that was easy to over look being on a budget.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, For The Price.

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Price! Seriously affordable.

Looks great to me.

Plenty of fan mounts (Highly recommend picking up a few extra 120mm fans).

The feet are tall enough to provide decent airflow to the PSU and bottom fan. My last case (Thermaltake V9 Black), sat much closer to the floor.

Cons: Took some creative thinking to get my Corsair H60 mounted... If you're planning on running water cooling (pre-made or custom), you may want to look elsewhere. Even the small'ish radiator for the H60 wasn't able to be installed as a direct fit. But, if you're determined (and have some light fabrication skills) it can be done.

With the motherboard I'm using (Asus Z97-A), it's a very tight fit between the RAM retention clips and the top center fan. If I wanted to remove the RAM, I'd have to remove the fan first to get enough clearance to pop the retention clips down. Depending on your motherboard, you may or may not have this "issue".

Rear screws for the side panels require a screwdriver. Thumb screws would've been a nice touch, but considering the price, I can't really complain.

Other Thoughts: Asus Z97-A
Intel i7-4790
Corsair Hydro H60
Asus Strix GTX 960
Thermaltake TR2 700W
G.Skill Sniper DDR3-1600, 32GB
WD Black 1TB and 2TB

4 out of 5 eggsGood budget case. Noticeable features that lowered my ratings.

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Matte Black
-Side panels hinge, no more slide locks
-Plenty of 120mm fan mounting points (is also a con; see cons)

Cons: -Some fan mounting areas may not be usable depending on your hardware (see other thoughts for details)
-A little flimsy, too much torsion pressure on the case causes it to warp
-Very difficult cable management, (duh, it's a cheap case, no eggs lost here) but modular PSUs make up for that
-Too large of a PSU will render the bottom case fan unmountable, the PSU retention bracket is in the way

Other Thoughts: The main thing I noticed while building on this case is that it is impossible to use the two top fan bays from inside the case, i.e., having the fans mounted inside the case. While using an air cooled heatsink, both bays were blocked by the heatsink and the RAM clips/slots. Not a huge deal, but I would have like to use them. I know I should have looked at the case before buying it, but it seems that you weren't supposed to use them at all, unless you planned on mounting the fans on the outside of the case.

None of these Cons/Other thoughts warranted taking away anymore than 1 egg. It is still a good case; just consider these things before purchasing.

1 out of 5 eggsBogus shipping from their store for parts

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of room, nice interior.

Cons: The case itself is rather flimsy, and the quick connectors are only one each, hence this reviews purpose.

Other Thoughts: Went to their store site to order additional HD quick connectors, priced at $3 ea. So I placed order for 3 additional for both HD and 5.25 to complete the set. Their site tried to charge me $72 shipping via ups ground for these. So they are getting a single egg for this. Now I know why they only included 1 of each.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
Thank you for alerting us of the issue. Please call Customer Service and we will adjust your order to reflect the correct shipping price.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the Best but adequate

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Black, nice LED, easy to build

Cons: Not the coolest (in terms of temperature) inside the case.

The 5.25 slot and HDD slot can be build more sophisticated.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We would recommend adding additional case fans to the front, top, and/or bottom of the chassis. The additional fans will help to cool your system.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Case

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: If you are on a tight budget, this case will not let you down. I was seriously expecting a cheap case.

Cons: The component (HDD, optical drive, etc.) "locks" are completely useless, they do not lock at all. I would advise you to use screws instead. Cable management is sort of hard, but hey, its 40 dollars.

Other Thoughts: The case could use some improvements, but hey, what are you going to get for 40 bucks?

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Budget Case

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Inexpensive, excellent airflow which has lowered all temps by 3 or 4c. Much quieter than my previous case with better thermal performance.

Cons: Feels a little flimsy but for 40 bucks, I can live with it. :)
