Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case Review

A couple of years ago Thermaltake released the V9 gaming case and later the V9 Black Edition. Today we are taking a look at another case in their V-Series the V3. The V3 is designed to be very functional, but at a very low cost. You can pick this case up for $50 online! This is an extremely low cost for any case, especially a Thermaltake case. This case features an all black design, mesh front bezel, and a 120mm blue LED fan. Let’s see if this is the perfect case for your next budget build.

– Black coating makes stylish inside look
