Thermaltake has announced a new enclosure: the Core V71. This is a full-tower E-ATX case with support for some rather impressive cooling hardware.
For starters, the case can house up to E-ATX size motherboards, graphics cards up to 310 mm with the HDD rack installed, 400 mm without, and CPU coolers up to 185 mm tall. It has room for up to two optical drive bays, as well as up to eight 2.5" or 3.5" drives. The hard drive cage system is fully modular, and can be moved around or removed according to the user's wishes.
As mentioned, the cooling capabilities of this case are its true highlight. A standard kit consists of a trio of 200 mm fans topped off with a rear 140 mm exhaust fan, though there is support for much more. The case has support for up to four 200 mm fans as well as an additional three 120 mm fans. Support for water cooling radiators is rather extensive. You can mount either up to a 360 mm radiator up top with a 420 mm radiator up front, or a 420 mm radiator up top with a 360 mm radiator up front. In addition, users can mount a 240 mm radiator in the base of the case, as well as a 120 mm radiator in the rear.
Front I/O is handled by a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, HD audio jacks, and power switches. Next to these you'll also find an integrated fan controller along with LED indicators.

One of the best cases for water-cooling that I have seen short of Corsair's 900D. I look forward to seeing the pricingReply
