Thermaltake Core X9 Stackable E-ATX Chassis Review

I’m almost embarrassed to show off the build for this chassis, it’s so wildly understated compared to what this chassis is cable of. I must admit, I’m not chassis modding expert and only with a whole month and an unlimited budget could I ever do this chassis justice. I can show you what is possible, but it would take an insane amount of time to actually test every aspect of what the Core X9 can do. We’ve installed an ATX motherboard with two massive Sapphire R9 270X Tri-X Toxic graphics card and there’s still a laughably huge amount of space left to work with.

The hard drive bays and really nice, and they’re very easy to work with, although it seems like a waste only having one 2.5″ drive per massive tray and you could have easily tweaked the design to screw two SSDs to the base of each.

There’s seemingly infinite space in the front of the chassis, you’re not going to have any issues with radiator thickness here, with room to spare for reservoirs, pumps and anything else you might need.

GPU width isn’t an issue either, obviously, as there’s plenty of clearance from the top of the chassis. Even with the thickest radiators you can find, and push/pull fans, you’ll no problems at all.

From the back, you can see that a full ATX system really only takes up half of the length of the chassis, perhaps a keen modder can fit another motherboard parallel to this one?

The cable routing is right where you want it and the GPUs do a good job keeping it all out of sight from the side panel window (should that panel be on the left of course).

There’s a lot of space above the PSU, which could easily be used to store excess cables if required.

There’s even more space here, perfect for mounting fan hubs, pumps and other cooling hardware.

All panels back in place and this monster of a chassis certainly catches the eye. The side panel is great for showing off your hardware. Given that you can easily fit any high-end hardware in this chassis, you’re certainly going to want to show it all off.
