    Default Thermaltake V9

    Today we're looking at a new mid-tower chassis from Thermaltake that looks eerily familiar, seeming to channel the essence of a successful gamer tower, the Antec 900. Whereas the 900 did have some design issues, it would appear that Thermaltake has set about to correct and avoid those issues, while also offering consumers a less expensive alternative for their hardware needs. We'll take the V9 for a test drive and see whether Thermaltake has been successful in its version.

    Look very similar to Antec 900 isn't it?
    Side panel window with honeycone grill (too big) look cheezy and cheap that you usually see in low end cases which this case fall into this category.

    Well it's not exactly a low-end case. I've seen many low-end cases, and built several systems in low-end cases, and the V9 is far better than them. The design overall isn't very cheesy (in my opinon), it's much more refined than garish alien-styled low-end cases. But the V9 does suffer from a few quality issues, that is true. It's not quite up to Thermaltake's usual good quality, but they did get it to market as a cheaper alternative, so that's part of the tradeoff. It's lighter than the Antec 900, for example, but it's not as sturdy either. The V9 is a good case if you want a cheaper alternative for the buck. Not bad, but not great either.

    I like this case and I am considering it for a build I am about to do, but I have a few questions. The bottom mounted psu design concerns me since i will likely have my case on a carpeted floor. Would it be possible to mount the psu upside down? Basically just have the fan pointed up instead of down. Is there any reason why I wouldn't be able to do this?

    Also, I am thinking about getting a GTX 260, but those cards are kind of huge. Do you think I would have any trouble fitting it in this case?

    Welcome to PureOC!

    I can definitely address those questions Steel.

    1. Yes, you can install your PSU upside down (assuming it's a model with a single large fan). I've done this before in a few builds and it's not ideal but it's not really a problem either, as long as you have decent airflow (which the V9 does have).

    2. The GTX 260 will fit in the V9. I have a very long 9800GTX+ sitting here and it fits in the case. It may be a bit of a tight squeeze depending on how well your cable management is inside the case, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks for getting back to me Skyguy. I'm pretty sure I am going to get this case. I am not overly concerned with cable management, at least not with how nice the cables look, since I will get the model without the side window because it has an extra 23cm side fan.

    Default Help with PSU for TermalTake V9

    I just bought the TermalTake V9 and coolmaster extreme power 650watts. It's the model with a single large fan at the bottom. I am unable to fit it upside down because the screw and the hole do not align. Will I have heat issues since my floor is carpeted ? I was thinking of elevating the rear base half an inch with a good support or laying down a wood base or do i have to drill holes in my PSU so I can fit the screw. what can be the solution ?

    Hi and Welcome to PureOC!

    Yes, your best bet would be to raise up the case slightly. I noted that was probably the biggest issue with this case, is that the feet were too short. What you could do is just block up the entire case with two small pieces of wood going across the underside of the case to keep it up off the carpet. Got a 2x4 laying around? Cut off 2 pieces and you're set.

    You could drill a couple holes in the PSU to line up, but ideally the PSU would intake fresh, cool air from the bottom of the case. With the PSU upside down, you may also find your graphics card temps rise, since they'll both be fighting for intake air in the same area. The GPU may not end up having adequate air to intake for cooling with the negative pressure in that part of the case as a result. Just something to consider.

    Raising the case off the carpet by an inch would be ideal.

    If you want a little bit fancy; go to HomeDepot (home hardware store) buy 1" or 2" industrial casters and installed them. Now you have a mobile PC for under $10-15.
