Thermaltake Core X71 Case Review

Thermaltake’s Core series has been a huge success for Thermaltake since launching last year at CES. The whole motto of the Core X series is “Your Build. Our Core” which means that each of the cases in the Core X Series can be designed to fit your specific needs. The brand new Core X71 definitely fits that description as it has a internal modular design and it is one of the largest Thermaltake Cases that we’ve ever reviewed! Being a full tower it has room inside for multiple long graphics cards, two power supplies, over 5 hard drives, and lots, I mean lots of room for cooling! As far as water cooling support you have room for a 480 mm and two 360 mm radiators installed at the same time. This case also has room for a total of 11 140 mm fans too! As you can imagine you can put together a pretty extreme system with this case so let’s take a look!

Special thanks to Thermaltake for providing us with the Core X71 case to review!


The Core X71 comes in Thermaltake’s typical retail packaging for cases. The front shows the case and lets us know that it is LCS certified.

Flipping over to the back there is an exploded view of the case that shows all of the removable parts, which you can see is pretty much every part of the case.

Opening the box up inside we find that case nicely protected by two large pieces of Styrofoam and the entire case is in a plastic bag. There is also plastic covering the side panel window to stop it from getting scratched.


Inside the case you will find a bag of accessories and a user’s manual. Accessories include all of your mounting hardware, 8/4 pin EPS power extension cable, a few brackets, and cable ties.
