Good functionality, a sleek design, and a low budget are the things Thermaltake had in mind while designing the Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case VL80001W2Z. With the typical cases designed for a higher-end systems we usually see from Thermaltake, the V3 Black Edition is a breath of fresh air. Thermaltake has taken a different direction with this chassis; it focuses on providing a wide range of functionality for a great price. Thinking about purchasing a new case but don't want to burn a hole in your wallet? Join Benchmark Reviews as we take a look at the Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case, model VL80001W2Z.

With up to four 120mm fans (2 exhaust + 2 intake), this beast provides superior airflow throughout the entire chassis. MicroATX and Standard ATX are supported, as well as 10 drive bays and 7 expansion slots which allows for great expandability in the future.
