Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Thermaltake V9 is steel mid-tower case targeted to gamers and usually when the manufacturer says that a case is targeted to gamers this means a good cooling system: this case has one 230 mm fan on the top panel, one 120 mm fan on the rear and one 120 mm fan on the front, plus the mesh used on the side panels use very big holes. V9 also has four 5.25” bays, two external 3.5” bays and five internal 3.5” bays, with the 5.25” bays and the internal 3.5” ones featuring a screwless fastening mechanism. Let’s take a complete look at this new release from Thermaltake.

In Figure 3, you can see the front panel from V9.This case does not have a door. The covers that protect each bay are meshed and featuring dust filters. In theory meshed covers improves the airflow inside the PC, however on V9 each bay (except the top one) comes with the traditional metallic cover between the front plastic cover and the bay itself, so unless you break these metallic covers you won’t be allowing the case to have the maximum internal airflow it could achieve. More about this later when we show this case disassembled. As mentioned before, this case has four external 5.25” bays and two external 3.5” bays for floppy disk drives or memory card readers. If you don’t have floppy disk drives or memory card readers, you can use these bays for installing more hard disk drives (more on this later).
