Thermaltake Core X Case Owners Club: X1, X2, X9, X9 Snow Ed. - Page 214

post #2131 of 4110
The Core X9 doesn't come with a fan controller which is a bit surprising consider the number of fans it supports but I found a cheap and easy fix.

http://www.amazon.com/Phobya-4-Pin-Splitter-Power-Eight/dp/B00OD7MO6E

I took a picture including the cable so you can see it just takes a molex power connector, supports PWM and has a PWM only connector goes to a header on the motherboard just so your bios fan controller profiles can control all eight fans. thumb.gif

It also has a glue pad on the back so it's really easy to place in the case where you want. biggrin.gif

Only other thing I can do is buy a 20mm thick 200mm fan and try that.

Just chop the nubs off that are standoffs on the back of the panel. You won't get any flow with a 20mm thick fan. thumb.gif

I used that exact controller on mine.

Saw some pics of the x9 case with an aio cooler for the gpu in push pull config and it looks there's not much room above the gpu as the guy had to place it away from it.
Also it looks even in push or pull config the cables that give power to the gpu can interfere with the fan of the aio if placed right above it.

Is there a taller x9 case coming out any time soon?

With many other ways to mount radiators in this case, any clearance issues when mounting an AIO single/double is the direct result of a PEBCAK issue, and has little to do with the size of the case.

Could anyone make a me a shroud to cover the cables on the side for My X2? I would pay for the shroud+work. P.M Me if there are any modders or people that have done it in the past!

Hahaha that was very funny!
I saw some pics where people were mounting fans outside on top of that case which would make it work much better. Is it possible to also mount the radiator too outside on top of the case as to give more breathing room inside the case?

The only person I have seen justify mounting fans on the outside of the case was Wermad, who succeeded in shoving 4 of the fattest 480 radiators on the market in push/pull into his x9. There may have been others, but I haven't run across any.

What is this "breathing room" you speak of? Is that a new technical term? Are you suggesting that dead air space may improve temps inside the case?

Well a roomy case is always cooler than a not so roomy case from my experience.
But when it comes to watercooling i guess that might not matter.

Last night i used an aio cooler for the first time. I had to bend the tubes a lot until i found the best way to mount it.
Should i worry of possible future leaks due to slightly abusing the tubes while trying to mount it?

I am going to have to let the guys with AIO experience chime in. I have used air or custom loop, so I am not familiar with the nuances of mounting one. The tubing itself should not be a worry.

I have three AIO's in my x9. They fit just fine. I also have a 360 by 60mm rad in the ceiling too. That takes up more space than the AIO's easily.
