Thermaltake Releases New Stackable Core V21 Micro-ATX Chassis

Thermaltake, being an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, introduces the new Core V21, the latest addition to the Core V Series, is a quadrate micro M-ATX-based chassis that offers an endless stackable and flexible thermal solution. It allows externally-modular upgrades for enthusiasts to create dual systems.

Designed for use in either a vertical or horizontal orientation on the motherboard, users can customize the chassis for the best viewing presentation. A 200mm fan on the front panel ensures that the Core V21 delivers outstanding cooling performance with compatibility for extensive DIY/AIO LCS, further enhancing the reputation that the air cooling units of the series has become renowned for. Guaranteed to be an immensely powerful system, the Core V21 also has the ability to accommodate various overclocking components to boost performance even further where it counts.
Vertical or Horizontal Motherboard Placement
The Core V21 is designed for use in either a vertical or horizontal orientation on the motherboard. Built for customization that reflects the enthusiast's personality, it allows for adjustments to the chassis for the best viewing presentation while ensuring outstanding cooling performance. A removable PSU dust filter is embedded in the bottom panel of the chassis. Additionally, shockproof rubber gaskets on the PSU bracket help to minimize noise during operation.

Stackable and Flexible Thermal Solution:
Stacking chassis together grants you the space to expand either the liquid cooling system or your storage solutions, or even create dual systems and allows you to dedicate your top/bottom stacked chassis for pure cooling. The maximum radiator length supported is 600mm at the front of the stack.

Remarkable Expansion
Designed for high-end gaming system compatibility, the Core V21's modular drive racks allow gamers to easily install up to six data storage devices, a dual expansion slot VGA up to 350mm in length, and a tower CPU cooler up to 185mm in height. Even with a high-wattage PSU of up to 200mm in length, there's still plenty of space available for cable management. Moreover, two 240mm radiators can be installed on top of the chassis, delivering superior cooling performance.

Optimized Ventilation:
With its exceptional cooling ability, the Core V21 offers various mounting points to support all types of cooling systems, including DIY/AIO liquid-cooling systems and air-cooling units. A large 200mm fan is preinstalled on the front to guarantee that any type of gaming system can be accommodated.

Chambers Concept:
The Core V21 is optimized for space management. It is divided into two main chambers: the upper chamber is made for cooling performance and efficiency, while the lower one is made for PSU and drive bays. Thanks to the removable 2.5"/3.5" drive device racks, there is plenty of flexibility to gain the maximum interior space when needed for advanced cooling performance or liquid systems build.

Thermaltake releases exclusive "Tt LCS Certified"
Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification applied only to products that pass the design standards of hardcore enthusiasts. The Tt LCS certification was created so that can power users can know which chassis has been tested to be most compatible with extreme liquid cooling configurations to ensure the best performance, features, and fit. Thermaltake's Core series of chassis-comprising V1, V31, V41, V51, V71 and V21 -is Tt LCS certified, meaning DIY PC enthusiasts can rest assured of optimal performance.

Agree with all of the above. A stackable case is such an odd thing that I can think of very few people who could possibly make sure of it.

And I'm really no fond of Thermaltake cases these days. Way too much bling and not enough build quality.

First possible use:
Often we saw husband-wife, couple, or brothers/sisters playing side by side. It'll save space without worrying it'll tumble over. It's neat concept really.
Remember, for some, space is premium. Even renowned developer such as David Brevik and his wife put their PCs in their closet.

Second possible use:
Farm. I saw mini mac farm before, it's not far off from that but you can use far better hardware.

Third possibility:
It's just copycat from CM.

That's funny that you post about him specifically. I'm getting my daughter into Marvel Heroes and want a side by side setup to make it easier to guide her along. Stackable cases would help tremendously.

I like the stacking idea my self although a little to high for my HIFI rack. How ever on top of it would be pretty cool and would free up a space on it.

Didn't they do something like that already? I remember seeing three cubes that looked like that and they could be stacked and modified...
