The budget mid tower computer case market is one of the most saturated when it comes to computer components. There are literally hundreds of different low cost mid tower cases to weed through when trying to find one that will meet your needs. I'll be the first to admit that many offerings are complete garbage. The key here is to find a chassis that combines the right mix of features and good looks while still being easy on the wallet and that is exactly what Thermaltake is aiming for with their recently released V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Case. With a retail price of only $39 USD, most would expect the bare minimum but read on because the V3 is dressed to impress.
Unlike some budget cases that arrive in brown boxes, Thermaltake ships the V3 Black Edition in a nice black retail box with a large photo of the chassis on the front and some features and smaller photos displayed on the rear. As the name suggests, this chassis is only available in black. Below is a list of specifications borrowed from Thermaltake's website.
Here we see that despite the case being constructed of steel, it is very light at only 10.6 pounds. As we will see in a bit, the cooling system is very robust and offers a lot of room for upgrades. Continue ahead as we take a closer look at Thermaltake's V3 Black Edition Chassis.
