Removing the side panel reveals the large 200/230mm fan grill and two 120mm NZXT fans with white blades.
After putting the side panel aside you’re wowed by the complete black interior, parts, hardware and all! There’s plenty of space to support large hardware and plenty of opportunities to use good cable management.
Getting a closer view, we take a look at the front of the case which houses one large hard drive cage, closest to the front panel with support of up to five 2.5”/3.5” drives, and one smaller hard drive cage which can be removed and supports up to two 2.5”/3.5” drives. Each bay houses an easy to install drive tray which uses four rubber grommets to reduce vibration on the drives.
Right above the larger drive cage is the 5.25” drive cage supporting up to five drives. NZXT has designed a unique tool-free installation system, which literally makes installation a snap.
Towards the back of the case is the bottom mounted power supply slot. The power supply is supported by four rubber stands and aerated by a fan grill and filter. Slightly above that are the seven expansion slots with perforated slot covers held on by black thumbscrews.
The white fan blade style is followed by the rear 120mm fan and top blue LED 200mm fan.
A large cutout for a quick change of the CPU cooler is found in the top left of the motherboard tray. Towards the right of the cutout are four additional, smaller cutouts covered by rubber to help keep cables in place and not visible when managing your cables.
The cables can be well managed by sending them through those four cutouts and securing them to the back of the motherboard tray.
NZXT provides an in-depth guide, covering all of the parts; they even show you what every piece of hardware is used for. All of the screws and other hardware are nicely separated in different bags saving you the time trying to pick out the right hardware.
