Almost all of us know at least one person whose PC emits a sound akin to nails on a chalk board - an unholy noise that would make dogs whimper and babies cry. When you finally convince that friend to get a new case to house his components, what's he supposed to do with the old one? Tossing it in the trash is always an option, but a "Green" solution - like recycling - is probably more appropriate, considering the growing importance of being eco-conscious. Heck, if you're feeling especially handy, the two of you could turn that old case into a wood burning stove. Once you're done saving the planet, it's time your buddy starts thinking about picking out a case that's quiet and has excellent ventilation. The Thermaltake M9 VI1000BWS PC case is one of many on the market that claims to offer incredible cooling and a silent workspace - all at a reasonable price. Will the Thermaltake M9 VI1000BWS case offer solid bang for your buck? Can it really outperform other cases in its price range? Let’s see what it has to offer!
The Thermaltake M9 VI1000BWS's packaging seems well designed. The black background really shows off the product and makes the images stand out more; plus, its specs and features are clearly illustrated, so you know what you're getting without opening the box.
The Thermaltake M9 is encased in Styrofoam, protecting its top and bottom, and the shell is sized to fit the box in such a way that nothing moves during shipping. The M9 is also wrapped in plastic, which offers additional protection from dust and scratches.
The M9 comes with the standard accessories - a baggie of screws and standoffs, and the instruction manual. Somewhat out of the norm, Thermaltake supplies a plastic bracket to aid in cable management, and a faceplate adapter for those who choose to install a 3.5" floppy drive.
Well, we've seen what the package holds - let's have a closer look at the case!
