Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Today we are going to analyse one of the most inexpensive cases from Thermaltake, V3 Black Edition. Although being an entry-level case, it keeps the overall quality and features found on more expensive cases from this brand. Check it out!

Even though V3 Black Edition is a simple mid-tower case, it comes with meshed areas on the top panel and a small acrylic window on its left-side panel.

As mentioned, Thermaltake V3 Black Edition has a small acrylic window on its left-side panel, which allows you to see the inside of the case around the CPU area. Below this window the case has a mesh that helps with the ventilation of the video card.

The right-side panel of V3 Black Edition is solid, with no extra features.

The front panel of the reviewed case has 5.25” and one 3.5” external bays. The 5.25” bays use meshed covers with air filters, which is nice to see in an entry-level case.

In order to remove the front panel all you need to do is to pull it. In Figure 5, you can see the back of this panel. Note how the four 5 ¼" bay covers are meshed and covered with air filters. The lower side is also meshed, but with no filter (a pity). The bay covers need to be removed from the rear side of the front panel, so if you want to install an optical drive you must remove the panel.
