Internal Features

The Vaya has a moderate amount of space inside, with just enough room for an ATX motherboard. You’ll also note that the sleek black paint job covers the inside as well, along with coming with all black screws and cable ties.

The HDD bays are facing inwards for some reason, not something I often see in a chassis these days. The clamps for holding HDDs in the bays look solid enough though, and easy to use to boot.

Speaking of these clamps, they’re a tad odd. Since the cage is facing inwards, both side panels need to be removed to install/remove hard drives. They’re also a bit fiddley with a lot of sliding the hard drive around to get it in the right place.

There’s 4 x 5.25″ externals bays, so plenty of room for optical drives, fan controllers and all that jazz.

The amount of room inside worried me a little. It was hard to work round the hard drive cage for airflow purposes, and wiring was a pain in the arse all the while.
