Introduction

Chances are, if you have been building computers for more than a year or so, you have used at least one Thermaltake product. Thermaltake formed in 1999, and the next year was building high performance CPU coolers. Since then, they have broadened their product line to include a full line of PC and server cooling solutions, power supplies, chassis, external storage, even some modding supplies. If you haven't heard of Thermaltake, you need to get out more. Actually, my first high performance CPU cooler was built by Thermaltake.

Back in March I reviewed the Thermaltake M9 Midtower. I found it to be a nice case, and used it for several motherboard reviews since then. Actually, it houses the last rig I put together. Like most of Thermaltake's other chassis, ventilation is a big theme in the case, with a fully vented bezel and the capability of two 120mm window fans.

Today I will be looking at Thermaltake's latest steel midtower, the V9. Other than also being a steel midtower, there is little similarity between the V9 and M9. With a bottom-mounted power supply, and a huge top fan, the V9 isn't unique, but is definitely not your boring ol' midtower. Read on to find out more about this new Thermaltake case.
