We headed over to Thermaltake’s suite today at CES 2015 and one of the things they were most excited about was their new Core X Series line of PC Cases. As you know we have already published our review of the Core X1 but there are actually two more cases that make up the Core X series.
The largest case in the Core X Series is the Core X9! I call this case the big boy of the Core X series an it really is! With official dimensions of “502 x 380 x 640 mm (19.8 x 15 x 25.2 inch)” this case can fit large motherboards up to extended ATX and a pretty insane system! Thermaltake had some pretty awesome systems installed in their demo cases. One of the coolest features of this case and all of the cases in the Core X series is that you can stack them. So the bottom of the case comes off and allows you to not only stack the cases, but run cables, watercooling, etc between the two sections. As far as storage goes you have room for three optical drives and seven hard drives (3.5 or 2.5-inch). As far as watercooling support this case can support the largest radiators on the market.
Next down the line for the Core X Series is the Core X2. This case has the same design as the Core X9, actually all three cases pretty much look the same, but are different sizes. Internally the Core X2 will support Micro-ATX motherboards, has room for three optical drives, four hard drives (2.5-inch or 3.5-inch) and three more 2.5-inch drives. As far as watercooling support you can fit 360 mm radiators on the top and front, a 140 mm at the rear, 140 mm at the bottom and even a 360 mm on the side panel.
Finally we move down to the Core X1 which is the smallest case in the series that supports mini-ITX motherboards. You can check out our full review of that case here. All of these cases should be available starting this week and the prices for the Core X9, Core X2 and Core X1 will be $169.99, $129.99 and $99.99 respectively.
