Thermaltake has introduced its latest full-tower PC chassis, the Core V71.¬†Featuring a quite handsome and functional styling design ethic, the Core V71 is one of Thermaltake’s more interesting PC chassis. With cooling-friendly mesh surfaces on the chassis’ front and top, it’s quite obvious that Thermaltake has prioritized optimum cooling performance with the Core V71.

As proof, it supports a plethora of options for fan and radiator installation. To wit, out of the box it has three (!) 200mm LED fans installed (two in the front intake position, and one on the chassis’ roof), with room for one more fan of this size up top. A 140mm fan is also installed in the rear exhaust position.

All told, here is a breakdown of all your fan support options:

Front

  • Maximum of three 120mm fans
  • Maximum of two 140mm fans
  • Maximum of two 200mm fans

Top

  • Maximum of three 120mm fans
  • Maximum of two 140mm fans
  • Maximum of two 200mm fans

Rear

  • One 120mm or one 140mm fan

Bottom

  • Maximum of 120mm fans

Then there are the radiator installation options:

Front

  • 1 x 120mm, 2 x 120mm, or 3 x 120mm
  • 1 x 140mm, or 2 x 140mm

Top

  • 1 x 120mm, 2 x 120mm, or 3 x 120mm
  • 1 x 140mm, 2 x 140mm, or 3 x 140mm

Rear

  • 1 x 120mm

Bottom

  • 1 x 120mm or 2 x 120mm

The Core V71 also boasts a fully-modular storage bay system. All of the drives that can be installed into it – two 5.25″ + eight 3.5″/2.5″ – sit in fully removable bays so the end-user has full control over the interior space inside the chassis. This way you can prioritize maximum cooling and install radiators where the drive bays would normally be.

As befits a chassis of this size, the Core V71 has eight PCI expansion slots. Multi-GPU users should have absolutely no issues installing their wonderful hardware. Also, motherboards as big as EATX can be installed in the Core V71.

Thermaltake Core V71 Hardware Installed

A few more esoteric details: The Core V71 boasts a window in the left side panel, so anyone can have a gander at the hardware installed. Its I/O panel also supports a pair of USB 3.0 and a pair of USB 2.0 ports, so there should be no shortage of USB connectivity options. Finally, the Core V71 can accommodate CPU air coolers up to 185mm tall and GPU lengths up to 310mm (with storage bays installed) or 400mm (with storage bays removed).

Due out in late Q1 / early Q2, the Core V71 is set to retail for $159.99 USD.

    What kind of fans did you add to the front, top and bottom of the case? I know they are Thermaltake but what is the model name because they look like they match the stock fans. Just picked up this case and would like to use the same fan setup.

      We’ve never taken a look at the chassis; that’s just a stock image and this is just a news post. I’ll shoot Thermaltake a quick note and see if I can get an answer.
