Thermaltake V3 Black Edition PC Case Review

29 May 2010
  • 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. It’s not a bad case if you have the right fit components, but even then you’ll find yourself fighting a bit with things as it’s a bit of a cramped case, especially around the CPU area. It’s a nice basic, low-end or low priced case.

Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case VL80001W2Z

Benchmark Reviews
26 April 2010
  • 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. This isn't really ideal, as this does not produce enough airflow throughout the entire case. I really would have liked to see at least one other 120mm fan included.
  • 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

Thermaltake V3 Black

20 April 2010
  • 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. With a black interior, very nice looks and a good construction quality it is more than adequate and you should feel like you have spent your 40 US Dollars or 36 € well.
  • 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 time allows.

Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Chassis

  • 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. It isn't glossy or super high quality but most budget cases aren't. Most cheap cases don't have painted interiors so this is a positive for the V3.

Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case Review

28 February 2010
  • 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. The V3 Black Edition is the perfect case for a budget build or even a nice LAN system since it is so small.
  • 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

Expert Review

2 June 2010
  • 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. Vi skulle också ha velat se en extra fläkt och åtminstone två (2) verktygfria klämmor – en 5,25″ och en hårddisksklämma extra.
