ThermalTake Bach VX case review

The Front

The front is made out of black plastic but does feature a lot of aluminum. The drive covers are also made out of black plastic.

On the bottom of the front panel there's an engraved Bach VX logo, above this logo in the upper right corner of this part of the front bezel you can also find the power and HDD activity LEDs.

On the left, right, above and under this part of the front panel are ventilation holes so the 140mm intake fan, which is mounted inside the case, can get enough cool air to cool your case.

The next part of the front bezel features two 3.5" bays and next of it you can find the power button and the reset button. On top, you can find the four plastic bezels for the 5.25" drive bays.

The Front Door
One of the special features is that you can easily open the front, just like a door. You don't have to do a lot of pulling and pushing with this case, I kinda like this because with some cases it's pretty hard to remove this panel and in some cases some plastic parts can break off if you aren't careful enough. The front panel is really user friendly and there's also a lock to prevent people from messing with your case on LAN parties.

Now let's take a closer look at what you see when you open the front. On the left you can see the drive bays and some cables which go to the LEDs and buttons. On the right, you can see the drive bays and a bit lower you can see the big 140mm dust filter. Because the door is so easy to open it's pretty convenient to clean the dust filter on a regular base.

The drive bays
Here's a look at the drive bays. The upper one doesn't have a piece of metal in front of it because ThermalTake supposes that's where you'll put your DVD drive. The other three are very easy to remove because they are secured with two screws. In the front door, you can find the four black fronts.

Just like most parts these plastic drive covers can be removed pretty easily.

On the second picture you can see the back of the plastic cover's button. You can move it a bit to the right and left so it matches with the location of your CD/DVD drive's button.

Dust filter
The Bach VX's front also features a big dust filter for the 140mm intake fan. Just like most parts of the front panel this filter can be removed pretty easily.
