And buying the case and the rads just to find out it`s a no go doesnt make much sense, currently using a define r5 that could take double 360s and just upgrading the case and rads just for going to 420s or 480s doesnt sound that exciting but 560 is another story that sounds much better.
I used the thread search tool for "560" and I quess it`s a no go.

You could with a little bit of modification to the case radiator mounts... But there is at least 120mm of area that will not have direct airflow, and your thinking of two, so that would be 240mm of radiator surface blocked. Unless you also decide to modify or go without the top panel.

Owning the X-9, I would say NO the 560s are too big BUT I have 3 XSPC RX 480s in mine. 2 on top and 1 to the right side. That's a lot of cooling power but if you need more (or is that MOAR) I have an External Watercool MO-RA3-420 Pro for my 4790k rig! Now THAT is a big rad!

Add me to the list of people interested in half-window panels for the X9, and as an added bonus, can they be found in the EU or do we have to order them from across the pond?

Anyone have an example what a half-window panel looks like for the Core X9? Thanks! It sound very interesting.

they are only available in USA, as far as i know, and only selling to USA and Canada.

I made an inquery with caseking.de to see if they could get them, still waiting for an answer.

Could some TT rep please answer why they dont sell this in europe ?

It's really not that hard of a mod to do, to make one for yourself out of the regular mesh side panel.

The only way to get one for a Snow Edition, actually, . . .


I used 1/4"aluminum channel, structural epoxy adhesive and 1/4" glass for mine:











So easy a caveman, (or senile old lady like me) can do it . .

and now do the window side darlene ;-)

Makes no sence only doing it to one side. As i see it it would give better airflow if you put half windows to both sides, and it would hide the lower compartment, so all wires and mess would be tugged away.

And it makes absolutly no sence that TT makes them, but apparently won't sell them

What exactly would you have me do with the window side . . . .

I already did a 3/4 window side though . . . . for where there's a PSU with PSU cover you want to show off and a 240 rad in front of it that needs to pull in fresh air . . .
