Thermaltake has announced a new mid-tower case, the Core V41, which includes the company's in-house Tt LCS certification to prove its compatibility with liquid-cooling hardware.
Retaining the curved-metal mesh design from its other Core-series siblings, the Core V41 is designed for gamers with high-end hardware. A perforated top-panel includes magnetic dust filter and a bottom panel is lifted with higher-than-average stands from the surface on which the case sits to boost airflow. As standard, the case includes a 120mm intake fan behind a front dust filter and a 120mm outtake fan at the rear, but this can be expanded to one or two 120mm or 140mm fans at the front, up to 3 120mm or 140mm fans or two 200mm fans at the top, and up to two 120mm fans at the bottom.
If those measurements have caught your eye, you'll be unsurprised to hear that Thermaltake is positioning the case for liquid-cooling enthusiasts. According to the company's certification, the case supports radiators in three mounting locations: up to 360mm at the front, another up to 360mm in the top, and a single 120mm of the type commonly used by sealed-loop all-in-one liquid coolers at the rear. Built-in grommets support 1/2", 3/8" and 1/4" tubing. Those opting for air cooling, meanwhile, will find support for up to 170mm heatsinks.
The case measures 526mm x 232mm x 491mm, and supports graphics cards of up to 275mm in length with the hard-drive bay or 410mm with the bay removed. Power supplies up to 180mm in length are supported, extended to 200mm if a bottom fan is not installed. The case includes two 5.25" drive bays - once convertible to 3.5" - and six 3.5"/2.5" bays, plus eight expansion slots, and supports mini-ITX, micro-ATX and ATX motherboards. A window is included in the side panel as standard.
