im really liking these cases. Will they cases be available in white? and do the cases come with 1 windowed panel and 1 slotted panel with the dust filters or 2 windowed panels? or will we have the option to choose?

Its 2 panels with dust filters (top and 1 side) and 1 with window, but it seems you should be able to order more panels, so you can go all window or all dust filters.

Just a shame that the hybrid one, from the BrimStone build, is not an option yet.

So far so dont it seem like any of the places you can preorder the X9, carries extra panels, meaning it might take a while before we can swap them out.

 

Also, it seem that the design team didnt fully account for extreme builds. In 1 case so can you use 3 of 6 480mm rad mounting points, if you stack 2 so can you use 5 of 12 480mm rad mounting points. Its the psu that is the most limitling factor, as its only 2 places you can put it and each blocks 2 480mm rad mounting points.

Okay, we got a bit more info on the layout of the Core X9:

 

But still no info on max radiator thickness (like 80mm rad with 38mm fans on both sides), nor inside measurements (bottom bay and room infront of motherbord).

I know I like to talk about extremes, but its Thermaltake that says that only the imagination is the limit.

 

Also, no dealers have extra panels available, yet.

Internal Dimension for Planning Your Build:

Core X9

I'm confused.

 

From website: Dimension (H x W x D) 502 x 380 x 640 mm

 

Yet I only managed to get these numbers:

Internal height 402mm (256mm+146mm)

Internal width 289mm (149mmx2)

Internal lenght 540mm

 

I refuse to belive the case is eating 100mm each way.

Also another fun fact from website: VGA length limitation 590mm (without ODD cage)

 

So I'm ether reading the picture wrong or there are something wrong with ether the website or the chart.

So I'm ether reading the picture wrong or there are something wrong with ether the website or the chart.

The dimension shown on the website is the external dimension which measures from the very tip of one end to another end which includes the panels, footstands, screws, covers, brackets, thickness of the panels and etc. All the part mentioned takes up space, so when it comes to the internal dimension, you will need to exclude all those mentioned to get a workable measurement. 

 

The purpose of the graph is to provided the space that are save and workable, obviously there are still space in between, for example the depth of the whole case is 640mm, and workable space on the chart is 540mm which leave around 100mm space, and  if you would take 50mm out for the front panel, you will left with 50mm inside. This 50mm space is available, but due to structure design it may not be so friendly to work with, plus  when it comes to install hardware you dont want to work to it full available space. 

 

Hope I have clear your confusion.

Might have put that on the graph it self, so its less confusing.

First of all thanks for giving such a nice build case to water cooling community. I Love the way Tt has designed the case. This was one of my project on a scratch build case that I want to build. I will definitely buy and  try to MOD this case for my purpose.

 

Actually my intention was to build like a test bench with all the water cooling components that includes

 

Bottom case :

 

2 X 480 RAD on both sides and 1 X 120 RAD on the front of the case and also at the back it should take like a 1 X 240 RAD with a PSU on its one side corner. The front should contain drive bays for fan controller, 5 X 5.25 bay on the bottom front and 2 stack of 3 X 3.25 & 2.5 inch HDD drive bays. 

 

Top case :

supportable to HPTX (10 PCIE Slot) , E-ATX, ATX, M-ATX, ITX board - 10 pcie slot motherboard tray with default holes for routing the tubes for water cooling and cables

 

Another portion is the top cover with 3 side acrylic and the back of the case is as normal with any case with a 120mm fan out next to the PCIE Slot

 

This is the case that i wanted to build as I have got a EVGA SR-2 motherboard and i will be adding and removing lot of components every now and then.

 

 

 

My Actual question is 

 

Can i install a 10 slot PCIE motherboard tray in Core X9 series????????

Hmmm I can see clearly from the pic that, The motherboard tray cant be removed to fit our needs. how sad it is on a water cool build case like this with a max option of 3 X 480 Rads can fit in this case without a small adjustment of a removable motherboard tray and a 10 PCIE SLOT  HPTX motherboard to Mini ITX in one case which would be awesome

You can remove the motherbord tray, but not the back wall PCIE slots.

 

Also, I'm too disappointed by the case, as its too small for more then 3x 480mm rads. Was hoping to mount 6 in it, but guess that was a bit over the top.

We are always open to feedback, as we always want to build new chassis and parts the way you need them.

 

Thank you guys for all of the feedback on the new X series, we hope you are having as much fun exploring them as we did designing them!

Well you can start with making needed parts available for purchase, like brakets needed to mount hard drive cages or radiators in the bottom.

It seems you only get 2, while we need 3 or 4 to make full use of the space. Same if you want to mount 2 PSU.

 

Also, the side panel wtih air went would be nice, as not everyone wants full size windows on there case.
