Thermaltake Core X Case Owners Club: X1, X2, X9, X9 Snow Ed. - Page 311

post #3101 of 4112
I was really planning on Core X5 but if I buy from newegg today I can get a Snow Edition X9 for $99. I think I'll need to measure again and maybe forgo my black DVD drive, I don't use it anyway.

Everyone's needs are different, what he needs or wants may make know damn sense to you.
I am over 60, and seen needs change on Pcs from, paper tape, to audio tape, to floppy, small hd and not so damn small.. **** in 20 years it may quantum data crystals. Just remember at some point some will ask for something awful, punch cards, tape drives and whatever somebody wants. Remember people still use ( the horrors,gasp) vynal records to usb.

Hey now! Tape drives are still used, and they are far from awful as a cold backup medium. tongue.gif

Well I ended up getting the black version for $10 more. A black X5 was what I originally wanted anyway. I do wish they provided 1-2 more mounting brackets for the HD Cages/Rad support. I can't see spending $20 +shipping when I only paid $110 for the whole thing.

I rarely use the DVD drive if at all but I have it so I was just going to move it over. Not sure there will be enough room for it to open anyway.

Looks like Newegg extended the deal for the white version only until the 18th.

Odd that Thermaltake does not offer the HD brackets in white.

Has anyone just zip-tied the HDD cage to the bottom of the case? I'd use the 5.25 bays but I only have 30cm extensions which I doubt will cover the space. Then again I'd have to order 2x sata data and 2x sata power which would be more than ordering the HD bracket so hence my idea of just zip-tieing the cage to the bottom of the case.

I guess I'll find out in a couple days regardless.

didn't zip tie them, used screws and nuts. Yes that means some drilling.

I have noticed a couple of X9 or X5 builds that have mounted fans in the mid section for the graphics card, My 770 seems to be the main heat source in mine so I may have to look at that
post #3110 of 4112
Ye , the reason i mounted that fan is , becouse my GPU waterblock isnt full cover , only the GPU is cooled , the VRM is passivly cooled . The temps on VRM without the 12cm cooler is too high for my taste rolleyes.gif
