I cant get the spare parts, unless I use a shipper that has an US based address that I can send it to first.

I am in Canada, so no worries. They also have some parts, but not all the parts you would expect. Though one poster mentioned that vented side panels were going to be available in Australia, so I would assume available in North America as well.

Like the bottom of the chassis this is one aspect of the new case line that should been thought out more carefully.

There are a lot of aspects of the case they could have done better: A way to place reservoirs without modding, fan controller coliding with top radiators, better side panels solution, a better way to mount hard drives...

For about 1/4 or less than an UN-named competitor with said features, I found myself with very little room to complain. I am not saying that some things could have been planned out better, just that longer in development=more expensive.

There are lower priced cases that have fewer problems, so it is possible.
But I guess that the hardcore water coolers dont mind a little modding, to get the best resoult possible (at least that seems to be the mind set with this case).

I might seem like a complainer, but that because this case is good, but could have been great with a few improvements.

Yes...well....I went out and spent another $30 odd dollars on a filter sheet and tiny neodyne (sic) magnets to hold it on. This would have not been necessary if the parts in the store were more comprehensive. I would have just purchased 1 or 2 of the magnetic filters slapped them on the bottom and call it a day. For a case such as this having everything that could be detached from the case available as an extra parts purchase is really a must.

As it is I am adding a NZXT Hue and a Sentry 3 fan controller, so I am actually using those 5.25" bays for the most part. That wasn't expected, but given the open layout pretty much the only option. I'm fine with that. The lighting will likely be off most of the time since this is a remote machine. I just figured since I was adding the fan controller and the filter mesh I might as well mod the rest and be done with it. On the plus side I only need to flip a switch when I want to check on something in the case in a dark room. biggrin.gif

Hope you are not using top mounted 480mm with those 5.25" bays, as that is a pain to get right.

Picked up a band saw blade kit (broke the old one with the first 5.25 tray redface.gif). One of them is a metal blade and it should do the job better with cutting the two remaining 5.25 bays. Finally, the main piece arrives wheee.gif

Agreed, and probably then priced out of my range.

Just received my x9 today and wandering how can I get the second PSU support bracket? It isn't listed in Tt store.
post #680 of 3988
Contact their support smile.gif

edit: I'm not going to use mine soon, but from prior experience, I would rather keep all the parts in case I move on to a different case (DD DW 29 biggrin.gif)
