Thermaltake Core x71 Full Tower Case Review

Introduction:

Thermaltake have been taking a much more aggressive approach to bringing feature packed and water-cooling friendly cases to market.  The Core x9 was previously the big dog of their line up, with support for a lot of radiator configurations, and the ability to stack multiple cases.  What if a more traditional tower case was more your style?  Enter the Core x71.

With a pretty moderately priced $150 retail at Newegg.com (at time of review), you certainly get a lot of case for the money.
