With the speed of components being pushed out on the markets today, cases have to evolve to deal with the additional heat created by these monster parts. Previously, when it came to cases users worried more about the looks and not so much on the number of cooling fans. You were lucky to get one fan with a case for the longest time. Now cooling has become a top priority and the methods being used are getting more and more interesting. One of the most trusted methods lately is the use of large exhaust fans on the top of the case to expel those harmful vapors out of the case with a vengeance. Thermaltake has been manufacturing cases for some time now and the company has created a new addition to the family with the Thermaltake V9 Gaming case. We are going to be taking a look at the model# VJ40001W2Z, which is a black mid-tower case with a flair of glamor for gamers and power users alike.
The Thermaltake V9 came shipped in its retail packaging, which is made of heavy corrugated cardboard to protect your investment during shipment and we all know how our packages are handled by delivery carriers. On the front of the box is an angled image of the V9 along with a close up picture of the 23cm top exhaust fan and some of the key features of the case. Around on the back is a diagram showing how air flows through the case keeping your important hardware inside as cool as possible. There are also close-up pictures of the key features of the case for your to get a better idea of what the Thermaltake V9 has to offer.
Opening the box and pulling out the case you can see the care that Thermaltake put into making sure your case is protected and un-scratched. The case is sandwiched between two foam layers and wrapped in plastic packaging to keep it free from harm. Included with the Thermaltake V9 case is the instruction booklet and a bag that contains screws, standoffs and replacement parts.
Now that we have the case out of the box, let's get up close and personal with it.
