IntroductionI'd like to thank Thermaltake for supplying the case for this review.
We have taken a look at many enclosures from Thermaltake in the past and this time around we have received the Thermaltake V3 Black, which is an entry level chassis aiming to supply you with cool looks and a useful feature-set. The case is part of Thermaltake's budget line-up, a market which is the focus of many other case manufacturers like Xigmatek & NZXT, who have delivered very affordable enclosures with a long set of extras usually found in more expensive variants. The V3 Black sells for a mere 39 US Dollars (excl. taxes) or 36 € (incl. taxes), which is even less than most cases from the competitors, so it will be interesting to see what Thermaltake has managed to put into this case at the price.
