Imo, its about as gorgeous as cases get.

My only gripes with the 909 are the some pretty questionable design choises internally, like the cable routing cutouts, the riveted HDD cages and the way the ssd trays are implemented.

But that's nothing some modding can't solve.

So basically you can't remove the HDD cages right?

You can't easily remove them, but drilling out rivets isn't that hard.

Could someone post the exact measurements for the spot behind the case which can hold the 360mm cooler. If you could post the height too that would be great. Would like to use a EK-CoolStream XE 360 which is 60mm + fans (25mm).

that will fit back there no problem as long as there isnt anything else back there (like a res)

Dimensions anyone?

For dual Xeons with no OC would you put a 280 or 360 in the back?

i would put a 360 back there to take as much advantage of that space as possible and having the ability to run the fans at a quieter mode

still trying to decide , strongly considering changing color inside case, but, paint or vinyl?

:rolleyes:my 909 plane is in a holding pattern. tongue.gif

about airflow sure the fans is front will now draw as much as lower fans... but this is a clear gap and its bigger than 1/8" just look at photos for those that do not have the case. my guess is its about an inch between the back side of fan mounts and the outer case. on top of that this a same size gap at both TOP and bottom of case.

look at new lian li pc-08, define r4 , r5, and others they have this like one inch "slit" on SIDE of case that draws the air in NOT in front.

put a box fan in a window pushing air out of the house, go to the OTHER SIDE of your house and just barely crack a window open. you may be shocked at how much air is being pulled in through that small crack. this is the best way i can think of to explain it.

RELOOK at all photos that show side and front of case from the INSIDE, you will see the space I refer to.

if moving more air from the front fans is the greater concern. block the bottom fan space and far more air will be moved by the front fans AND they will still be filtered.

and maybach123 has it right, high airflow fans on bottom , and high static pressure fans on front ( think rad fans) if you just going the "air" route.

oh and one last thing I feel this case is MADE to use water not air. IMHO best setup is high SP fans all around, a 240 rad on bottom INTAKE and a 360 rad on back EXHAUST or a 240 at both places as intake and make a diverter in the rear to move ALL the warm air of rear rad up and out the back.

these are JUST thoughts , if I opt for the latter I would get a dimplex 240 rad filter to place on the back outside of case. in "my head" I see it working but not sure. and it would be just as easy to remove and clean as the bottom 240 filter.

So you already bought the case? I'm still trying to decide between 909 or Caselabs SM8 / SMA8 White .

yeah man I scored a great deal on the egg it was only 335$ and I got it literally last minute the code was still good. it is a beautiful case. have had 3 cases in a row with window ( cheap ass plastic , look at it wrong and they are scratched up. I decided I wanted something with REAL GLASS. seen this case thought it was beautiful , price was right so I bought it. I feel this case should be at max 350, if they price them at 299 they will sell a LOT MORE of them, there are not many that are willing to pay a lot for a case.

in your boat I read good things about case labs. quality and such, what turned me off of their cases actually is there are so many ******* different part options to chose from , I did not want to try to sort each part out , as there website blows , you really have to hunt for the different parts and photos of them. so thus I have a new black beautiful 909 waiting to take the place of the TT case.

I bought THIS dvd burner as I still wanted optical drive. I will set it in the space on bottom of case, goes really well with the brushed aluminum exterior
