Introduction The versatility of the mITX platform continues its popularity with gamers and builders of all kinds. This is partly due to the availability of a functional chassis to create these stellar systems. No matter if you want a gaming rig or a low profile HTPC there is a case for the task at hand. Thermaltake has offered a few mITX cases in the past but with some new design directions, they are at it again with the Core V1. The Core and Urban series chassis are a large shift from the style and overall designs found in TT’s past series.
