The Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition Mid Tower Case
Down the front the bulk of the materials used here is the Steel mesh acting as covers and the intake at the bottom. Down both sides of the mesh are two textured pieces of plastic so that the bezel matches the sides. At the very bottom you will find a chromed logo.
At the top of all the mesh you will find the power and reset buttons with the hard drive activity light between them. On the actual top of the chassis there is one USB 2.0 port, a headphone and MIC jack, and a USB 3.0 port.
Typically where most cases offer a tray for your cellular phone or USB drives and cables, Thermaltake mounted a Dual Bay Dock to hot swappable hard drive access. This will allow for super easy transfer of games at the next LAN, or even a simple way to clone an OS drive.
Taking another step back you can see there is no wasted space in the top. With everything they already offered up top, they still found room to place a 230mm fan under the mesh to vent the case of warm air.
Looking at the side panel you can clearly see the "X" that the angled window and mesh design make together. The window is screwed into the panel and offers a good view of the interior while the vented sections allow for an inflow of air to the chassis.
The rear of the chassis is topped with a pair of water cooling holes, and as you can see Thermaltake pre-wired the USB 3.0 cable through one for easy connectivity to the rear I/O. Next to the I/O area there is a 120mm fan to exhaust air here as well. Moving down you run into the seven vented expansion slots and you can see where the tool-less assembly gets mounted next to it. That leaves us with the hole at the bottom to mount our favorite PSU.
The right side panel is a reverse of the other door panel. It offers both sections of venting as does the other side, but of course there is no window. The "X" theme is carried out here as well with just the indented of steel in the middle versus the window.
Under the V9 BlacX you will find four large plastic feet to keep the chassis elevated and secure on your desktop. In the rear, under the power supply, Thermaltake offers a removable dust filter to protect the intake of the power supply should you choose to install it with the fan facing down.
