Thermaltake Core X Case Owners Club: X1, X2, X9, X9 Snow Ed. - Page 312

Looks like TT ships 3 brackets so that worked out well for me, and Amazon delivered my Riing fans and fan controller 1 day early so I could move everything.













Just need to pick up a sleeved molex to sata power extension and maybe a few more combs. Still needs so more cable management but pretty good for one evenings work.

The nice thing about the TT core cases, I have the X9 is the versatility, especially if you are willing to experiment.

I wanted 3 XSPC RX 480 rads housed in it and I found a way. I ditched the HDD cage. Too big and bulky. I'm running 2 Samsung 850EVO 500Gs in Raid 0 plus a 2Tb WD Black for data storage.

I had an Old Chieftec 2.5" bracket that perfectly fit both ssds. After a black paint job and mounting with a few bolts to the bottom, both ssds were mounted in the middle.

On the left side bottom as you look at the X9 from the front, rear to front, I have mounted, my PSU (PC Power & Cooling 1200W), my 2Tb WD (used a cheap black bracket and my XSPC dual 5.25 slot twin D5 pump/reservoir. On the right side lower I have one of my three RX480 rads using the mounting brackets previously used by the HDD cages with the remaining 2 480 rads mounted in the roof.

This setup allowed enough room for a DVD drive to be mounted in the front top. I have a NZXT 6 channel fan controller (2 fans per channel) controlling my 12 Gentle Typhoon fans}.

It isn't "fancy" or "blingy" but it sure works well. BTW, Apollo Caster Company makes casters that perfectly mount up to the bottom holes on the Core X9. Life is a lot easier when working on it.

Here are some older pictures when I hade a GTX 980 TI in it (now GTX 1080).

Hope this helps.

Has anyone been able to mount dual 200mm fans on the front of the X9? I want to put them on the exterior of the case, but part of the front fascia prevents the installation.

I do not want to install the top 200mm fan on the interior because it will restrict placement of the top radiators.

I believe someone has here in the thread, you'd have to really search for it (or wait and they might show up) but I can tell you it will involve a Dremel or similar tool to eliminate the plastic which will interfere.

Got my case partially setup, just running on stock Intel Air cooler until water cooling parts arrive:






Parts still to come:
EKWB White CPU Block, and GPU full cover block.
EKWB White 250 Reservoir
EKWB White Compression fittings and Tube
D5 Pump +Bitspower White back and top
White Vadar Fans
New Fully Modular PSU (HX850 Smei Modular atm), and customized set of CableMod cables.

Really like the design of the case over all, only small gripes are that the bottom center divided should be made the slightly longer, so it's the same length of the Motherboard tray, and they should have made the gap between the divider and the HDD cages slightly larger as you can't pass cables behind them through the divider as it is. Another small thing is the front port/button cables should have come out the bottom of the front panel into the case, or right at the top and made them a bit easier to hide.

I used some cutting pliers, worked out ok, not very clean, but got the job done.

Anyone know if I use the two rad brackets on the bottom to have two 240mm rads pushing air downward out of the case if that will work or is it better to keep the rads on the top racks instead? would that cause the case to have higher temps that way? My logic here is that the front has the 200mm fan that can feed right away cool air to the two 240mm rads forcing hot air out of the case from the bottom while having fans on top pushing cooler air into the case.

Should work fine, most people like to use the top as the air flow is aided by convection, but it shouldn't make much difference. LTT did some basic tests on an all-in-one loop and got no temperature differnece weather the rads where sucking cool air directly from outside the case, or "pre-warmed" air from inside the case. To be fair, a thin AIO 240mm rad probably isn't a good comparison to an customer loop with decent rad's though.

Thanks for the info I decided to try a different layout. Just waiting now for the rx 480 aftermarket gpu to be out with a block or one I can use ek block.
