The great Aussie case mod competition

Sponsored by Thermaltake
Your Mission: To design an “Australia: Past, present and future” chassis modification based on Thermaltake’s outstanding V9 BlacX Edition mid tower system housing.
The theme: Australia: Past, Present and Future
What do you imagine when you think of Australia? It’s a country with so many different stories. This makes our theme very broad - from a design that honours Australian native fauna, or perhaps a topic like our love of sport, to a futuristic look at where we may be in 20 or 100 years time! If you’re not sure whether your idea fits in with the theme, please email us.
The Thermaltake V9 BlacX
The system housing we have chosen to be modded is a state of the art design from world leading high performance chassis manufacturer, Thermaltake. The V9 BlacX Edition features a dual bay docking station on top, a world first, allowing for easy swapping of 3.5” and 2.5” SATA storage drives. Within the all black interior there are tool free mounts for optical drives and PCI devices. This chassis also offers the latest USB3.0 SuperSpeed connector and, like any great case, air flow has been optimised for the latest PC hardware. A silent top 23cm fan provides maximum ventilation and the motherboard tray sports a CPU cooler access point to assist aftermarket cooler installations.

The inside and the outside and all the grills are black, making it the perfect blank canvas for a mod.

Thermaltake are supplying twenty of these chassis for this competition. For your chance to win one... read on.
