Closer Look: Interior
The motherboard side. A nice hole for your cooling tower mount option, and you might think some nice cable routing holes, and they are, but there is a little problem with the cable management with this case. We'll get to that, though, in the detailed interior section.
The cable side. Oh yes, there is something of interest here! Note the absence of toolless mounts on this side. I guess Raidmax thought since their tooless mounts were enginered so creatively, the drive would be secure without both sides being locked down. Well, Raidmax, you're wrong to a definitive fault. I'll show you why in just a little bit. Nothing else to exaplin here. Move it!
Here we go. These are popular. A power supply filter, HOORAY!, and the second of only two images that could have gone under the detailed exterior section (that we skipped). Furthermore, even though this is an external filter, it serves the internal aspect of the case, namely the power supply. So I've taken the liberty to stick it here. If this bothers you, please get your flame thrower out and roast me like a tri-tip at a Super Bowl party. I can take it because I'm Old Flat Top: "Here come old Flat Top, He come grooooovin' up slow-lay, He got, Joo-Joo eyeball, He shoot, koooooKa-kola, He got hair, down, to his knee, Got to be a joker cause he do what he please!" ("Come Together," The Beatles).
And last, I treat you to a fully opened black option. No, there are no hinges on the front door. It simply slides off like all of the rest. Kinda tricky of them to take the picture like that though, don't you think? It looks cool though right? Yeah. Sure does. Almost makes you think there's a custom swing away door on this model. That's why Benchmark Reviews is your friend. You read reviews like this so you can cut the marketing hustle and see the real deal. Again, the side fan shown here is either invisible when you get the case, or it simply doesn't come with it. Either way, if you want a side fan, you'll need to buy one.
Take a closer look at those really cool tooless mounts. Well, not really. I'll show you why next. (Remember, they only come on one side.) They do look nice too, but this is a case point of flash without function.
