Detailed Exterior Features
There is plenty of ventilation on both sides of the case. Antec uses honey-comb grills in specific parts of the chassis to remove heat efficiently from the system.
On the left side, there are honey-comb grills which remove heat from the GPU and HDDs. You can even watch your components trough those grills.
At the right side, there are more grills, but this time there are 2 fans exhausting air trough them. The left fan is specially designed to exhaust PSU heat, while the right side fan exhausts the heat from the CPU and motherboard components. You can add a second fan in the middle of both by removing a small plastic cover. I´ll show you that in the next section.
Once you open the case this is what you´ll see. The case is pretty small, so small that you might ask if your HTPC will fit on it. It will fit, it might be difficult, but it will...
The PSU features most of the connectors you´ll ever need for your Mini-ITX system. It comes with a 24 pin ATX connector, a 4-pin ATX12V connector and some S-ATA and Molex connectors enough for 3 drives and fans.
The front panel connectors include: HD Audio (AC97 also), eSATA connector, Power, Reset, HDD LED and Power LED. I am wondering if I will be able to manage a proper cable routing with so many cables inside this mini case.
