Thermaltake Core X Case Owners Club: X1, X2, X9, X9 Snow Ed. - Page 399

post #3981 of 4136
There is one thing i don't like about X9.The 3 flimsy Drive bays in the frond panel...I sadly need to use them cause,i use a HDD bay enclose,with a fan,that is occupying all 3.So i left only the last one in order to host the enclosure,but with two tiny screws im not sure how much this can hold (i used tight wraps on the top to hold the weight as much as i could,but its not pretty)Any other suggestions?

A couple.

1. Ditch the enclosure and mount them free on either side per your liking with the supports that come with the case.
2. Move them out of the case using an external dock; use either gigabit Ethernet docks or USB3 docks. Examples abound.

I have 2 WD Green HDDs currently in my X5 and I will move them soon to a HP Microserver Gen8 which i'll buy next month. For 250 dollars, it's really the best bang for the buck.

Thanks for your help smile.gif The two drives are western digital blacks and these things are getting too hot,50c or even more.This is why i bought the enclose for,its actually a thermaltake one and is not exactly closed.With this setup they are around the same temp as the other drives without a fan (36-40c)

Its this one.

Speaking of my X9 , I'm planning to do some major mods soon. I'm going to relocate my CNC res to the front of the case. I'm planning to remove the stock mesh front and cut out a flat alloy plate with a hole in it to mount the res so the front of the res is flush with the new alloy plate. I might cut in some circular vent holes in the front with mesh behind them and possibly back lit with LED lights.

After moving the res , I'm planning to install a new 280mm rad vertically in front of the mobo tray with a custom radiator shroud that will mount 3x 140mm fans inside the shroud so all you see is the fan blades inside the triangular shaped shroud.

And then I'm going to re plumb the loop so that the GPU's and CPU are in a parallel loop.

Hopefully it all comes out looking kick ass.

P.S I haven't heard from Darlene since Hurricane Irma went through her area. I hope she came out of it ok. If not then all the best we are thinking of you here.


Cheers Dan.

cheers.gif



Irma didn't get us too badly, like it did the islands just 40 to 50 miles to the north of us.

Still, it's been slow recovering as most all the islands' resources are shifted to St Thomas and St John which were absolutely decimated.


But here on St Croix, we are exactly 2 weeks later, and it's our turn in the barrel . . .

Maria is now a Category 5, (and strengthening over warm water) and going to run directly over us tonight.

It's already blowing hard and storming.

I'm here at work with a small crew of security and surveillance folks who will weather the hurricane here.

We're probably better off here than most of our homes, as we have our own power and backup generator system.

If it's as bad as expected, and our infrastructure is as lame as the other island's, after this afternoon or tonight, we probably won't have any communications or internet for quite a while to come.


And what makes it all so ironic . . . . .

Is that I ordered another X5 Tempered Glass, Snow Edition on Saturday, (before Maria was ever a hurricane) and it's supposed to deliver to my PO box on Thursday, which is an unbelievable fast turn around for Amazon . . . . . No doubt they'll be changing that tracking info pretty quick

We'll be luck if the post office still has a roof come Thursday . . . .


Will update after the storm passes as soon as we get internet back.

It's great to hear your ok Darlene .

Hopefully you can ride out the next Hurricane ok.
Stay as safe as you can. I'll keep my fingers crossed here in Australia for you.
Best of luck to you and yours.

Cheers , Dan.

I'm glad to hear the good news about your safety as well Darlene. And hope this goes to anyone that might be, directly or not, affected by this disaster.

As for my case dilemma..I'm a noob in watercooling and modding and I don't deny it biggrin.gif As on many occasion Darlene or many of you said..X9 is like a blank canvas, decent case for the money that with right approach and skill can produce stunning results. And believe me, after reading almost 400 pages, I was able to see some outstanding examples of that in this thread. But for someone just entering this world..I think it might be a bit overwhelming. It's not even about the need to mod things to achieve certain results, but something much more trival. You actually need A LOT of stuff to fill it up to a point it does not look like ass..empty ass I might add wink.gif So when my plan is to go water for CPU first, then maybe extend it for GPU after few months..this actually means 1 rad, 1 pump and probably not too big of a reservoir with simple soft tubing. I know I will get something bigger at some point, as my knowledge and arsenal of tools gets bigger (looking at you CaseLabs baby drool.gif)..but for now, I decided to go with Core X71. The biggest competitor for me was Phanteks Enthoo Primo, but in the long run and after reading opinions and reviews, I decided on TT case. Phanteks is more expensive, some say better build quality but at the same time I've heard voices that it is not up to the cost actually. Also..people seem to have same issues in terms of QC as TT cases in general. Reason was also the window in Enthoo Primo that I would be forced to mod after getting the case because I just simply don't like it tongue.gif So yeah, Thermaltake Core X71 will arrive on Thursday! I genuinely can't wait smile.gif

As I wrote above, I will be going water for CPU first. I assume some EK block. For rads I already did some research and I will go with one (should be enough?) EK XE360 or HWLabs Nemesis GTS 360 (it's hard to get them in my country atm), 200mm res (no opinion on brand yet) and D5 pump that will support Aquaero (5 PRO or 6 XT) I want to add in the future. Not much, but at least I'm moving forward! Sort-of.. tongue.gif I will be continuing my research but your comments are highly welcome smile.gif

Cheers to all and have a wonderful morning, day, night..wherever you are on the globe! smile.gif

Finaly it's complete ... for the Moment.





In my Opinion, the X5 just provides enough space for me ... not to much. Two circles, one for GPU (3x2x120), one for CPU(3x120), Aquaero 6 for controling all the elements. 2xD5 running on ~20%... very silent. Arylic Tubes 16mm. (My first Hardline-Tubing)

Tell me, if you want so see morge pictures or want to know further details.
