New ideas often originate, ironically, from other ideas. We see something, figure out what makes it successful, then dream up ways to improve it and tweak it, then set out to make it a reality, hoping that we actually do make something better by the end. We see it in the world of architecture (Neo-Classicism, anyone?), cars (hello, Mustang) and believe it or not in the world of computers.
Today we’re looking at a new mid-tower chassis from Thermaltake that looks eerily familiar, seeming to channel the essence of a successful gamer tower, the Antec 900. Whereas the 900 did have some design issues, it would appear that Thermaltake has set about to correct and avoid those issues, while also offering consumers a less expensive alternative for their hardware needs. We’ll take the V9 for a test drive and see whether Thermaltake has been successful in its version.
We would like to thank Thermaltake for supplying us with the review sample.
?Since the beginning of Thermaltake in 1999, it has been at the forefront of creating new and exciting products at a time where most computer users were provided little to no choices for components that may seem irrelevant, but are in reality crucial to the performance of a PC. Thermaltake Server Series solutions, with years of thermal experience and industry leadership, sets its goal on reforming total thermal management in the server segment by formulating the perfect mixture of versatility, efficiency and thermal management with each respective server product category: Rackmount Chassis, Server Fixed & Redundant Power Supply and Server CPU Cooling Management Solutions.?
Now let’s take a look at the Thermaltake V9!
