That's actually about what it's worth biggrin.gif

What I find rather interesting is how many folks jumped on it as soon as it came out, and how few new owners we see in this thread as time goes by . . . . .

Just thinking about what I've see done, when was the last time anyone has seen them stacked, (something heavily hyped in its advertising) . . outside of sponsored builds, and how many of them have we seen that even look even moderately acceptable.

So then, if you want to show what can be done with them stacked, and they are worth that, you're not paying too much if you buy a second one. smile.gif

If ever there was a time to buy a pair of them for a planned stacked build, assuming the sale isn't quantity limited, although the rebate likely is, This would be the time.

If you already have one, and have a yen to see what a stack mod would be like, $89 would be the golden opportunity.

I think what you're seeing is the backlash, however warranted or unwarranted it may be, by the "gaming community" against TT for "copying" case designs and the subsequent statements by employees of CaseLabs (since retracted and apologized for due to having no patents on the designs.) There are just a lot of people out there who won't buy a ThermalTake product simply because they heard they shouldn't buy them "cuz ThermalFake bad."

Irony is how many cars look virtually identical.

Overall I'm happy with what I have. Yes it's large, but airflow is NOT an issue in this case. The only major complaint I have are the side panels are flimsy (which is to be expected at this price point, for such a large case, unfortunately.)

so is most ppl satisfy with X9? I would love to get caselab, but couldn't swallow the $500 price tag for S8, that's almost a gtx980 ti there.

Hi S002wjh,

I just got my and so far I love it. The space and the possibilities are endless, however the only thing i don't like is how the cable are in plain sight and it is a little tricky to hide them. You will need to be very good at hiding your cables in order to make it look clean. I am actually doing my rebuild with a Core X9, if you like please check it out.
