I'm surprised how much you can actually fit inside this case. It's not exactly little. Shorter yes, wider yes, so it's like Winnie the Pooh; short, fat, and proud of that. 9 120mm fans, 1 200mm fan, 1 240mm radiator, and 2 120mm radiators are crammed into this and still running well. Amazing! Working in this is a breeze since all the sides and front can come off. I do wish it had room for an slim optical drive like the Fractal Node 804 but I've found I barely use one anymore so... I guess it works out.

Great cube case. Panels are interchangeable. Airflow is great but not really noise dampening. Its fine though when you got the right fans.

Honestly I'd give this case 6 stars if I could. Thermaltake took the complete modders approach when they designed this case. It allows you to tweak it to just how you need it to be. It's super roomy and offers great cable management & superior airflow!

For a first time builder, this is an awesome case, everything strips down, plenty of room to build, to tuck away cables and what not, a few points however: - As others have pointed out the PSU bracket is a pain in the derriere, I only stuck with it because I'm a perfectionist but I honestly don't think it's a needed thing to install for PSU's under 750W - I removed the cage with the 3 3.5 inch disk trays to give me more room for cable management, you can fit 4 2.5 inch HDD's or SSD's on the right hand side panel and it's more discrete for cabling I think. - I kept my build horizontal with window panel at the top, this case is amazing, and my build is SUPER quiet, honestly it's quieter than any of the laptops I've ever owned. Got it for 62 euros.

I really like this case. It was a little bigger than I thought it'd be but that is ok. The case is very easy to work in and is really good with air cooling. My only complaints are the horrible instructions and the psu bracket is a pain to install.

This case was a blast to build in because of how far it can be taken apart. I did settle on the vertical setup, and I thought cable management wasn't too hard but if you were to do a custom loop it would have to be creative. Power supply bracket was a pain and probably not necessary but I did it for sake of completion.

Lots of room and pretty good built quality. Would build in it again if I had the opportunity.

Great cube case with plenty of room for your hardware. Cable management can be a bit tricky. I ended up with a cable knot that is a bit tricky to conceal, especially since the cables for the case hardware are twice as long as they need to be. Overall great case with excellent ventilation.

Originally, I was going for a typical full-tower case (Nanoxia's Deep Silence 1 ATX Mid Tower Case was my favorite) but it just isn't practical if you're a college student.
In the end, I settled on Thermaltake's Core V21 MicroATX Mini Tower Case because of three simple reasons: it's small and it looks cool, but it's also understated. Aside from having really great reviews on every site I've visited, the case has a nice big window to view your computer's beautiful innards, plus it's sturdy enough to last me as long as I need it to. Also, it's not striped, ridged, or any of the other crazy things that other cases pull. The honeycomb front allows for great air flow while adding some flair, but otherwise, the case is simple. Nice.
For anyone looking to buy this case, I'd note a few things. First, you don't immediately see it, but there is a great big intake fan hidden in the front of the case that Thermaltake included. (Surprise!) Second, there is no space to include a 5.25" inch drive, so if you want your computer to be able to read DVDs, you need to buy a USB CD/DVD reader. Third, the case will scare the **** out of you multiple times if you're a first-time builder like me and don't really know what you're doing.
Case in point: Thermaltake, ingeniously, has included built-in motherboard standoffs in the case to make it easier and quicker to install the motherboard. However, this information is NOT mentioned in the manual, and it took a lot of nervous Internet searching to determine that I wasn't actually missing any standoffs, nor was I going to spontaneously fry my motherboard once I plugged it into the power supply.
Anyways, the case is perfect in every way, except for one thing. The drive bays. They are really flimsy. I'm glad I don't have to pull them out unless I need to install or replace a drive, otherwise I'd be terrified of breaking them.
