Detailed Interior Features
This is a 180mm fan, not a 200/230mm. It's a very slim fan too and it's a very lightweight fan. Perhaps some of you can clue me in on what type of fan this is? Check out the fan shroud. That's like a 1/16" thick! Whatever its actual thickness, it's a very thin and lightweight fan.
This is what I mean by lightweight. That's bendo baby. The fan blades are very thin and flexible. The blades are so thin that, as you can see, they easily bend when lifted with my index finger. It has an LED harness that connects to the front LED knob, just as the front fan does. You can replace the 180mm fan with a 120mm, if you desire. In fact, I believe the 180mm fan is "optional" so you might check before you buy if you want the 120mm instead (I'm not sure if Raidmax will ship the 180mm as standard or not).
Here's the punched out side panel canal for your harness and wires. It's a full half inch. Add that to the internal groove, and you get, as noted earliar, about an inch of cable space, if you stick to both canals. If not, you'll probably still have room for your wires and cables, but have a harder time closing the panel.
From the motherboard standoffs, you have right at 7" of space to the side panel. This should be sufficient for most of the tallest cooling towers.
Whoa!The Eagle has Landed NASA! You're looking at 12" of video card space. That, and the way the drive caddies are engineered, you only lose the width of your SATA cable, since the 3.5" drives fit flush in the back.
See what I'm talkin' about? You lose virtually no space here. I'm not a fan of backward facing drives, but this makes up for at least some of the disadvantages of a back mounted instead of a side mounted drive cage. Take note also that the drive cage is not removable.
Here's a shot of the tool-less hardware, or I should say, plasticware, or steel-astic.
Okay boys and girls, the cotton candy has all run out, the pizza is calling me, and the carnival is a movin' on, so let's get to the next section where I can tell you what I think, and give you a nice, tight, concise conclusion of the Raidmax Seiran mid tower case.
