I see i360 you're using the CM 690 II Advanced. The BlacX and the 690 II Advanced were actually my 2 top choices in my budget but I went this way because it was $20 cheaper and had USB 3.0.

I hope it does me well (I read some comments from people who didn't like v9 Black too much)

Well, I still have my another system with the V9 Case. Interior got painted black, exterior white. Are you having any problems with the blue cable? Where is it located?

Well, I havn't assembled it all yet as I literally spent my entire budget before I could grab my ram and harddrive lol. Parts are still sitting in boxes. I opened the case though and took a look at it, I don't think it will be an issue at all.

Also,after seeing a youtube video of some guy who didn't like the PSU arrangement on the v9 black, I looked at the fan filter there, which is a good 3/4 the size of my PSU fan if not more and there seems to be enough air room under the case. (The older v9s were lower right?) Still, I'd like to have seen that guy actually run some tests and post some real temperature numbers to prove his theory.

When I finish putting it all together I'll post how it all went and will take pics.

Well, it's finally up and together (For last 3 days) Havn't got around to pics yet.

I really like this case. Cable management I doubt is any better than any other v9, but I got it good enough without modding for decent airflow.

The top drive bay is unusable for any kind of DVD drive though because of the wires from the docking bays. So I stuck in an i-cage in the top 3 slots and the dvd drive in the bottom.

So there it is, I'm an official v9 user.

I have the V9 black edition. Pics to follow. I modded the feet and side fan. One pic in my sig rig page

I like the case, the airflow is excellent. With a little work the cable management is quite good.

I wasn't sure about the case, but after installing all the components I do like it, although I agree cabling is pretty tough. I had originally planned to buy a full tower but couldn't find one locally. Heat dissipation is quit good, but need a better CPU cooler now with the purchase of i7-875k..running at 3.759Ghz.

Quick question; Will the H50 fit in the TTv9 Black Edition and without modification ?

Can the radiator mount to the existing fan on the back of the case right near the CPU ?

Thanks
