Thermaltake Core X5 ATX Cube Chassis
The Core X5, the new ATX chassis that completes the Core X Series case line, is a cube case offering endless stackable capacity and expandability for enthusiasts to create massive liquid cooling systems for a single system, file server, or even dual systems. Users can customize the chassis for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design. The Core X5 delivers outstanding cooling performance with compatibility for extensive DIY/AIO LCS and overclocking components, further enhancing the reputation that the air-cooling units in this series has become renowned for. It is guaranteed to be an immensely powerful system!
Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification applied to only products that pass the design and hardcore enthusiasts standards that a true LCS chassis should be held to. The Tt LCS certification was created so that we at Thermaltake can designate to all power users which chassis have been tested to be best compatible with extreme liquid cooling configurations to ensure you get the best performance from the best features and fitment.
Stackable and Expandable for Enthusiasts
With its endless stacking design, the Core X5 is in a class above the rest. Virtually limitless utility is possible; it offers an expandable system allowing enthusiasts to incorporate externally modular upgrades. Stacked together, the chassis opens up space to expand the liquid cooling system, the storage solutions, or even to create dual systems, thereby enabling a dedicated top/bottom set-up for pure cooling. When stacked, the maximum radiator length supported is 540mm on the front side.

Superior Expansion
Designed for high-end gaming system compatibility, the Core X5’s modular drive racks allow gamers to easily install up to seven data storage devices, a dual expansion slot VGA of up to 480mm in length, and a tower CPU cooler as high as 230mm. Even with a high-wattage PSU stretching to 220mm in length, there is still plenty of space left for cable management. In addition, two 360mm radiators can be installed on top of the chassis, delivering superior cooling performance.

Outstanding Ventilation
The Core X5’s unparalleled cooling ability offers fan brackets with various mounting points to support any type of gaming system that can be accommodated, including DIY/AIO liquid-cooling systems and air-cooling units. A large 120mm fan is pre-installed on the front side and a rear 120mm fan reassures and guarantees the flow of aeration. The fan brackets can either be adjusted for 120mm, 140mm, or 200mm fans on the top panel, while there is room for 120mm fans on the side panel.
Chambers Concept
Optimized for space management, the Core X5 is divided into two main chambers: the upper one is made for cooling performance and better efficiency, while the lower chamber is made for PSU and drive bays. Thanks to the removable 2.5”/3.5” drive device racks, there is plenty of flexibility to gain the maximum interior space when needed for advanced cooling performance or liquid systems build.

Fully Modular Design
A “3 +7” drive bay concept design for storage devices makes setting up the best storage solution on the market super easy and flexible. Additionally, a customizable 3.5” & 2.5” drive bay feature enables users to freely interchange the 3.5” hard-drive cages to suit their particular needs.

Interchangeable Window and I/O Panel
Allowing for yet more flexibility, the chassis can be customized for the best viewing presentation with an interchangeable window and I/O panel design.
