Thermaltake Core X2 mATX Case Review


The Thermaltake Core X2 is the Micro ATX addition to Thermaltake’s Core X series.  It is considered a “Cube Chassis”, and has quite a lot of room.  If you’re looking for a compact Micro ATX case, go somewhere else.  This is definitely aimed at the enthusiasts who want to cram a lot of gear inside their case.  To further emphasize this, the Core X2 can also be stacked by removing the feet, top panel, and a bottom plate to create even more space for whatever you might want.

It is by no means a small case, and that is something that should be considered.  It may be little obtrusive if you plan to put it on a smaller desk.  It’s a beast of a case, and can get heavy quick.

The retail price is $129.99 from Thermaltake, but can be found at Newegg  (at time of review) for $115.99 with an additional $20 mail in rebate.
