PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
Looks like what we have here is a steel mid-tower case with some big, quiet fans and some other air flow/cooling enhancements. There are also some tool-free features and an unconventional PSU placement. Drive space is plentiful with room for a total of seven hard drives, should you forgo a floppy. It will be interesting to see how Thermaltake ties all this together to justify the promised “marvelous” moniker.
Here's the box that showed up here at the lab. In typical Thermaltake fashion, the carton is sturdy, informative and attractive. Inside, the V9 was packaged in a plastic bag sandwiched between two foam blocks. While this is certainly adequate, it's also unremarkable.
Somewhat atypical, for Thermaltake chassis products anyway, are the included accessories. Specifically the lack thereof. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, just unusual. There's not much hardware in that bag, which usually means a simple, straightforward installation.
