A Look Inside
Getting inside the case we have a pretty standard 2 compartment design with the top larger compartment for your motherboard and the smaller bottom compartment for your power supply and storage.
Looking closer at the motherboard tray we can really see just how short this case is. We do however how support for ITX, Micro-ATX, and ATX motherboards. Montech lists graphics card support at 305mm and CPU cooler support at 160 mm. Surrounding where you’ll install your motherboard are five larger cable routing holes as well as two smaller ones. These do not have any sort of rubber inserts, but the edges are rounded. Upon initial inspection of the motherboard tray the steel used is quite flimsy.
Moving down there is a power supply cover that has a cut-out at the front if you happened to want to install a radiator in the front of the case, it appears as if you could fit a 360mm here. There are cable routing holes on the power supply cover as well as two fan mounts that support 120 mm fans. These are interesting as the one closest to the front is basically useless as there is no ventilation on the bottom of the case were it is located. The other I guess could be used for your power supply but to install either of these you’ll need large radiator-style screws which are not included with the case. The power supply cover does have the Montech logo on it and a cut-out to show off your power supply.
Looking at the rear of the case we can see that the expansion slot covers are the ones that you bend to remove from the case and are not reusable, so be sure to remove the correct ones or you’ll have a hole back there.
Taking the opposite side panel off the case we can get a look at how the rest of the case is laid out. The first thing that caught my attention was all of the molex connections daisy-chained together. These power your fans, so no option to connect them to your motherboard for software control. You’ll noticed three more white molex connections connected on the bottom, these are for the lighting on the fans, again more on that in a bit!
On the backside of the motherboard tray are two removable storage trays that support 2.5-inch hard drives. These trays are made of metal.
In the bottom compartment of the case is a small hard drive cage that will support two 3.5-inch drives, one inside and one on top. The cage can be removed from the case to make room for longer power supplies. The other half of the bottom compartment is where your power supply will be housed.
For those wondering about space behind the motherboard tray there is less than an inch so things will be a little tight.
