A Look Inside
Opening the case up is pretty easy just remove the 2 thumbscrews on the side panel and slide it off. Inside you will find that the case is pretty plain, no black interior it has the plain steel interior that we honestly have not seen in a while. There is however a large CPU cutout, which will allow you to install aftermarket CPU coolers without removing your motherboard.
Starting at the bottom of the case where the PSU will be placed I noticed there was no ventilation, something that has become standard on many cases with bottom CPU placement. Moving up you have the PCI slot covers, they are the ones that you bend off the case. I’ve never been a fan of these, they tend to actually bend the frame of your case when you go to remove them.
Up at the top of the case you can see the 2 fans, a 120mm rear fan and a 200mm top fan. These will provide excellent cooling, while still keeping things pretty quiet. At the front of the case you have your typical hard drive and optical drive bays. This case can fit 6 hard drives and 3 optical drives along with a 2.5-inch hot-swappable drive. You can see how the hot-swap bay is connected.
