My System Specs

Exclamation Tt Core V21 - what do you think?

I have been thinking of getting this case a while back, and most probably I will in the near future. It has a ton of options. I would like your opinions here. My system will be air cooled, no water cooling here. A micro ATX/mini ITX mobo will be used, I will probably recycle the Deepcool GamaXX 300 heatsink that is cooling my Xeon right now. Tt's own review here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwOL5QYxJD4 and one a little more detailed by Kitguru https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaKsJFQoChw

My system will not have an ODD so not worthy to mention that. Cpu will probably be a Core i3 or a G3258. Second pic shows the Deepcool heatsink in my present rig, of which the SATA ports stat to die, as the last 2, the 5th and 6th do not detect drives anymore, so it is the time to upgrade anyway.

The fact that it can house a front 200mm fan gives you a lot of useful airflow to keep CPU, GPU and motherboard components cool. It also has a lot of storage spaces with 3 x 2.5" and 3.5" dual drive bays in the side, and the other bay beneath. In addition the ability to exchange and move panels around gives flexibility in orientation.

If I had one of these I'd watercool the heck out of it and use it in a reverse motherboard layout (ie. window on the right side) but there are many options.

I'm still a big fan of the Core V1, V21, and V31 cases from these guys, but I feel the V21 is a bit more solidly built. Even a V1 would be useful for you if you want to save a bit of ca$h based on your configuration.

We had to go to the local CC branch, the West Island store, and the lady had the chance to see the Air 240 and unfortunately we don't have the place for a cube matx system so I emailed Dmitry, maybe I can get that windowed Define S.
