When Thermaltake launched their Core X cube cases they had the Core X1 (mini-ITX), Core X2 (micro-ATX) and Core X9 (E-ATX), so there was a pretty big gab between the Core X2 and X9. The X9 was just a little too big for many people so Thermaltake has come out with an ATX Core X Cube case which is the Core X5.
The Core X5 has the same cube design as other cases in the Core X series, but is much shorter than the larger Core X9. The official dimensions of the case are 463 x 371 x 540 mm (18.2 x 14.6 x 21.3 inch) and it weighs in at 26.5 lbs. There is a large window on the side panel to show off all of your gear inside. You can fit motherboards up to ATX in size, large graphics cards, CPU coolers up to 230 mm in height, 7 hard drives and two optical drives.
As far as cooling support in the front of the case you can fit 3x 120mm fans, or two 140 mm fans, or a single 200mm fan and water cooling radiators up to 360 mm. Since the top of the case is wider you have room up there for six 120mm fans, or four 140mm fans, or dual 200 mm fans and dual 360 mm radiators. That is sure a lot of cooling power! There is more than enough room for your own custom water cooling loop.
They had a Riing Edition on display that will come with Thermaltake’s own Riing fans and will retail for $169.99.
