Interesting features of the Thermaltake Core G21 Tempered Glass Edition Case

Just like we expected, this chassis comes with a lot of interesting features. One of the first things to notice here is surely the presence of the 4mm thick windows, which are present on the left and the right side of the case, and are made out of tempered glass. This material guarantees durability and permits the owner to admire the system from both sides. The Thermaltake Core G21 case has fully modular brackets, which are there to provide the user with an easy installation. For example, changing 2.5″ and 3.5″ hard-drives is tool-less and incredibly easy, and definitely deserves a lot of praise.

Furthermore, it can also easily accommodate multiple storage devices, which can come in very handy.

The cooling capabilities of this case are just stellar – it is optimized for fast ventilation, and also supports all sorts of advanced liquid-cooling solutions, which just might be the thing that you’ve been searching for.

Conclusion

Although it is not perfect, we can safely say that the Core G21 is among the best PC cases in this price category that we have reviewed so far. There are a lot of things to like here – the chassis has some excellent cooling capabilities, thick windows made out of tempered glass (which are, unfortunately, quite prone to scratches), and it is incredibly easy to reorganize the things in its interior. It supports a number of cooling fans and has a bigger-than-average VGA size limitation, and all of this combined makes the G21 an option worth considering.
