Enthusiast Design

Designed for gamers, the perforated top panel allows easy heat dissipation and rapid air intake for maximum ventilation. The heightened case-stands at the bottom help to enhance airflow and overall stability during operation. Featuring a transparent side window to offer a direct view of the inner system.

Tool-free Installation

Innovative 5.25” & 3.5” tool-free drive bay design has minimized the hassles of installing/removing. “2 + 5” drive bays with modular drive racks, a typical ratio for accessory and storage devices.

Fully Modular Design

A highly customizable 5.25” & 3.5” drive bay feature enables users to freely interchange the 3.5” hard-drive cages to suit their needs and remove the 5.25” & 3.5” drive bays to gain maximum interior space for advance cooling performance or liquid system build.

Advanced Ventilation

Core V51 delivers an outstanding cooling performance, consisting of DIY/AIO liquid cooling systems and air cooling units. Two 120mm intake fans are hidden behind the front dust filter, quietly pushing vast amounts of air over the hard drives and GPUs. The air is then extracted by the third 120mm fan at the rear. Additionally, with the aid of the cable management design guaranteed to take the cooling performance to the next level.

High-end Complete Solution

Core V51 enables users to build a complete high-end system, whilst supporting up to either 420mm radiator liquid cooling, or 200mm case fans, with a long graphic card at the same time, and simultaneously protecting the user’s hardware as well as increasing the CPU’s overclocking potential. Most importantly, it has the capability to deliver an outstanding cooling efficiency throughout the entire case.

Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification applied to only products that pass the design and hardcore enthusiasts standards that a true LCS chassis should be held to. The Tt LCS certification was created so that we at Thermaltake can designate to all power users which chassis have been tested to be best compatible with extreme liquid cooling configurations to ensure you get the best performance from the best features and fitment.

Power Cover Design (Optional)

With power cover design, the entire bottom area can be used to reorganize unused cables, which makes for a tidy-looking system. Furthermore, the PSU cover can hold two additional 2.5” HDD drive bays.

"Jeg blev positivt overrasket hele vejen igennem min test og tid med Core V51 kabinettet. Selvom jeg prøvede at finde noget jeg ikke kunne lide ved kabinettet, lykkedes det mig aldrig. Derfor lander vi på 10/10 hvad angår scoren, og efter som at Core V51 er et gennemtænkt og alt for fedt kabinet – især for vandkølere – kommer der en ”Great Product” award oven i hatten. Det er ikke særlig tit at jeg er så tilfreds med et kabinet som jeg har været med Thermaltake Core V51 – bum!"

Tweak Town

"On the down side... oh, who are we trying to kid with that one? There really is no down side to this chassis, or what it intends to deliver to the customers. With modular systems at play, the option to gut things without destroying the structural integrity, plenty of room for our gear, and the ability to house an E-ATX motherboard without issue, this chassis really sticks in our minds..."

 Le Core V51 ressort de ce test fort logiquement auréolé des labels recommandé par la rédaction de 59Hardware et Performance.

  • Qualité de construction,
  • Plein de place pour le montage,
  • A la fois performant et silencieux,

Thermaltakes Core V51 is duidelijk bedoeld voor het zogenoemde enthousiast-segment, zoals gamers en overklokkers. De behuizing biedt, zeker voor een midtower, een zee van ruimte om je hardware onder te brengen. In feite kun je de V51 bijna als kleine fulltower bestempelen. Ruimte voor eatx-borden, grote videokaarten en lange voedingen is er voldoende, maar de behuizing blinkt vooral uit op het gebied van waterkoelmogelijkheden. Grote radiators en dito reservoirs zijn zonder problemen onder te brengen.



  • Zeer ruim
  • Veelzijdige indeling
  • Uitgebreide waterkoelopties


PC Gameware

"I have to say that I’m shocked at how much I enjoyed my time with the Thermaltake Core V51, it’s a good looking mid-tower case with a great side window, perfect for showing off your latest Gaming Rig. It cools both CPU and GPU well, even if you’ve opted for a hot potato like our test XFX R9 290X DD Black Edition. Support for water-cooling is also class leading at this price point, and the price? Just £79!"

Overall Verdict: 10
