Thermaltake Core X9 E-ATX Cube Chassis Review

Inside the Core X9 Continued




In the lower section, at the front of the chassis, there is a removable drive cage that will house three storage drives. Each tray is made to accept either a 2.5" or 3.5" drive. This cage is also mounted to a dual fan bracket, which can also be installed here vertically if desired.




At the back of the chassis, we find the same drive cage and fan mounting plate installed in the lower section. Along with storage and the same vertical fan mounting option, you could also install a PSU.




Since all of the wiring is pre-run down this side of the chassis, we undid the bundle and laid it all out. There is a ribbon cable for the buttons and LEDs, there is a pair of USB 3.0 connections, and the HD Audio cable, all of which are black to blend in to the build.




Moving to the other side of the Core X9, we look into the rear of the chassis and find the 120mm Turbo fan with a 3-pin connection at the end of a seriously long run of sleeved cabling. We also see that the slots use thumbscrews to secure cards, and a metal plate installs to cover the gap above them.




The lower section on the right side is completely open, and since the back is open and there is a PSU support rail screwed into the floor, it is obviously intended to have the PSU go here at the back. Of course, this also leaves a ton of room for pumps, reservoirs, fan hubs, and custom lighting controllers.




Inside of the right side panel as well as inside of the top panel, the mesh areas are backed with these plastic dust filters that have magnetic strips applied around the edges. This will simplify cleaning them on a regular basis so that the interior can remain as dust free as possible.
