Closer Look: Interior
Here we will take a look at some of the interior features. This is a shot of the empty case with the drive cage installed. The way this cage installs is quite interesting. There are two top screws on either side of it that hold it in place.
Removing them allows the cage to slide slightly back, and then rotate up, and then you can pull it out. This seems like a very useful way to access both the cables connected to your drive, and also the cables in the front of the case that you may wish to reconfigure from time to time. We will see just how that works out once we start installing components.
Here is what the front panel looks like underneath the drive cage. There is plenty of length on the USB headers and whatnot to reach just about any spot on your motherboard. The HD audio header is almost too long, as I had to wind it up a bit under my motherboard.
Here is a better shot of the front panel connections. The only thing missing from here is the optional LCD screen module.
This is a shot of the motherboard and PSU installed. There is a good amount of room in this case with it being able to hold ATX motherboards. See how there is another spot for an additional side-mounted fan on the PSU side, but you will notice there are no appropriate exterior holes on that side, which is confusing. There isn't a great deal of space by where the PSU cords come out, so it was in my favor to have a modular Power Supply.
