Conclusion: The V3 Black Edition is a lightweight case, one of the lightest out there I would think, I was very surprised by how light it is. It does seem well made, and I like the fact that it is painted black inside.
Summary: For $50, the Thermaltake V3 Black Edition offers a lot of bang for the buck. Not only will you get a fully functional case out of the box but there are also expansion options in the form of four 120mm fan positions and high quality features like tool-less mechanisms on two of the drive positions...
Conclusion: Reviewing a case in terms of performance is difficult; it's hard to say when once case is better than another, except for features. The Thermaltake V3 Black Edition case comes with only one 120mm fan, but allows expansion for up to four.
Pros: Sleek black interior / exterior, Easy access to install CPU heatsink, PSU dust protector, Lightweight, Great value, Watercooling capable
Cons: Only one fan included, Difficult cable management, Flimsy material, Only 1 tool-less adapter per each drive type
Summary: The Thermaltake V3 Black is priced very low, making it an interesting choice for those either just wanting something different than OEM or for those on a tight budget, looking for a cool chassis.
Pros: Very competitive price, Black interior, Water cooling ready, Good construction quality, Bottom mounted PSU bay, Expansion bay lock holds well, Dust filter for PSU, Rear exhaust fan, Good paint job, Little window is a nice touch, Light & Compact
Cons: Drive locks fairly useless, Very compact dimensions do not allow for large or wide CPU coolers, No easy way to easily route cables, No eSATA or Firewire, Corner piece of PSU bay rather annoying
Summary: The Thermaltake V3 Black Edition is a killer little Case. Affordably priced and feature packed I’m looking forward to moving my second PC into this Case. Given the cooling potential, ease of use and slick color I’m really excited to move everything from my WaveMaster over to this Case as soon as...
Summary: I have been using the Thermaltake V3 Black Edition in this configuration for a week or more and there is very little I can find to complain about, especially given its budget price tag.
The black on black paint job looks really nice.
Summary: Final Thoughts
It seems many companies are going the “value” route this year, coming out with cases that are very functional, but at the same time will not break the bank. We’ve already seen 2 cases from NZXT like this and it’s good to see Thermaltake doing the same.
Pros: – Can be found for under $50, – Nice and small, – Can fit a normal ATX motherboard, – Easy installation
Cons: – Only 1 toolless adapter included for the hard drives and optical drives, – You might run into issues with larger video cards
Conclusion: Vi såg vissa inslag i det här chassit som vi gillade, och vi såg några som kan förbättras. Nätaggregatsdesignen är en bra förändring, dock skulle filtret vara bättre anpassad till utanför botten av chassit, vilket gör att vi kan rengöra utan att demontera hela datorn.
