1 out of 5 eggsThermaltake V9 BlacX

Pros: Have built-in HDD docking, easy to setup....

Cons: Cheap plastic parts which it has very brittle and easy to break almost all lock plates for hold internal drives. The cooling fans are very cheap made with poor bearings that short lived and had to replace it with Corsair air series with advanced hydraulic bearings. The built-in HDD docking with USB ports were lousy. Because when I remove after click remove hardware cause computer shut down and reset back into operation again. F R U S T R A T I N G!!!!

No wonder, Thermaltake discontinued this product because so many people complaining about poor designed.

Also, they designed power supply hold in reversed because they want cooling fan on bottom against cheap filter assembly that cause so many times with dust clogged and cause power supply raise temperature. Good thing I have temperature device to watch CPU and power supply and got warning many times.

Their customer service are worst!!! So many representatives are not helpful.

DO NOT BUY this brand. Buying any other brands such as Corsair.

Other Thoughts: Just do not buy any Thermaltake products until they design with better materials and better warranty coverage and replace all customer service representatives.

I replaced with Corsair Graphic 600T silver and use their liquid cooling system and wow.... far better compared with junk Thermaltake.

Just do not buy Thermaltake period

2 out of 5 eggsboth fans broke

Pros: This is an update to a review I wrote 2 years ago.

Cons: After two years, Top fan stopped working and now the rear fan stopped too.I do not run this machine 24/7. Now I question the quality of Thermaltake products and will not be returning to it anytime soon.

2 out of 5 eggsA mix of good and bad.

Pros: There are several pros to this case - It's not too bulky, has a decent amount of interior room, and it looks really nice. Also, the airflow isn't terrible.

Cons: There are a number of cons i've noticed throughout ownership of this case. First, cable management is somewhat difficult. The power supply spot also isn't too large, which was a problem when i tried to initially install it. Also, after some time, the top 23cm fan began slowing down substantially and recently doesn't work at all. When the fan spins, it hangs low and often scrapes against the interior. Also, more often than not, it gets caught on the case and stops all together. I've unplugged the fan from my motherboard because there really is no point to having a slow, problem-prone spinning piece of cheap plastic. If I was aware of this, I most definitely would have purchased something else.

Other Thoughts: Get this case if you're looking for something sleek with questionable sustainability and performance. Get something else if you'd like reliability and better fans.

5 out of 5 eggsbest case I've owned

Pros: I've really got nothing but good things to say about this case. The fans are great, allthough I want to replace the top fan with a higher RPM fan. The plastic plate for holding cards in, was easy to remove, and just use screws. (I don't even have a negative about this, because its useful for those who truly want to go screwless) The top bays are a huge plus, however I've yet to use them, because I don't own enough SATA drives. My system, with everything in it runs at a nice 44C.

Cons: uh, it wasn't cheaper? and... my new gigabyte board has 3 screwholes that don't line up with anything... I dunno, is this really to blame on the case?

3 out of 5 eggsOkay

Pros: Big fan on top
hdd bays
tooless design

Cons: dust collects quick
front panel pops off too easy
some of it feels too cheap

Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 port on the top doesn't seem to work right but that could be the motherboard I got. Overall it's an alright case, would spend more for a better quality

5 out of 5 eggsBEST CASE

Pros: when you drive a car you have many things that come at you at various times this case can be equated to that. I love the two case mounted Say Tah (SATA) drive bays on the top as I do not have any hard drives inside the case (2 X 240 SSD & 1TB platter);no need. The ability to switch hard drives at will or plug one in for back up or transfer is quite phenominal and is an awesome idea long due. I am only using two of the 4 front 5.25" bays (3 usable); it would have been better if a 5.25* card reader had room to be installed on top.

Cons: The Expansion slots in the back are great just remove the tin can alley plastic chrome plated woopie wouser red and black securing strip and go with screws; it took me all of 60 seconds to figure that one out amazing poor quality there, I broke the first one just opening and closing it to see how it worked. I installed the go-flex bay in the top slot (3.5") so case is the same as the other V9 case; in the bottom slot I installed a card reader with a spare USB 3. For me it would have been better if the two top mounted drive bays had (SATA) power connecters rather than molex. I replaced the back as well as the front 120mm fan with one(rosewill) that has a plug that will plug into the motherboard and allow regulating and monitoring .

Other Thoughts: I installed another Say Tah (SATA) drive bay in the front the star.tec duel so I have places for 3 x 2.5" hard drives or 3 x 3.5" hard drives the star.tec accepting 2 by it's self for a total of 4 hard drives access ports. Along with the go-flex 2.5" drive bay that makes 5 back up hard drives that I can use with this system. Since I have no hard drives in the bottom below the 2.5" bays per another commenter dna to me. Top 230 mm fan is quiet and circulates copious amounts of air the case is always cold to the touch. VERY GOOD CASE my first choise for fuctionality. I got it on sale @Newegg $49.99

3 out of 5 eggsIf your getting a high end GFX Card Do not get this case

Pros: Nice looking and the docks on the top are pretty nifty, Not a bad case for the money, not what I would use in a high end build though.

Cons: Terrible High end GFX card slotting ability. The plastic tags in the back CAN NOT hold the weight nor can they even fully Clip if you purchase a higher end card. I've been building PC's for almost 15 years and this has to be one of the dumbest idea's out there.

Other Thoughts: Over all not a bad case, but the plastic used in the case is really pretty sad. I broke atleast 2 of the tabs and the GFX card was not able to be held in place by what they supply as a GFX clamp.

2 out of 5 eggsOK, but bad HDD cable clearance

Pros: SATA docking bays on top

Cons: The HDD bays don't allow standard SATA power or signal cables to attach properly when the case is closed! It is an extremely close fit between the side of the case and the HDDs and if you've got any cables that aren't 90 degree, they won't fit when the case is closed.

Other Thoughts: Interesting twist on a case with the external SATA bays, but the cabling for drives is just terrible. Didn't someone think of this prior to offering it for sale??

2 out of 5 eggsOnly get it if you *must* have the top-loading HDD docks

Pros: - Top-loading HDD docks
- Well vented

Cons: - Not very strong
- "Tool-free design" is extremely cheap -- I've already broken two HDD grippers (idk the right name) because they rely on very small pieces of the red twisting part. If you don't have it pushed in all the way, you could *very easily* break off those tips rendering the whole grip useless.
- Terrible cord management. I could barely fit three HDDs in this one.
- PSU positioned on the bottom with a vent also on the bottom, but the case doesn't sit high enough off the ground to actually allow air to flow, so I have to place a plank under it when my computer is sitting on carpet.

Other Thoughts: Recommended? No.
If I could go back in time, I would get this instead:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112239&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL111111&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL111111-_-EMC-111111-Index-_-ComputerCases-_-11112239-L010B

Same price, but MUCH better quality and better cord management. (Plus until 11/13/2011, you can get $30 off with this coupon: EMCJJJJ48)

Manufacturer Response:
