Interior – Bottom part
The inside of the bottom part is like a normal ATX case, but also with a lot of features, like extensive cable management, ten PCI slots and so on.
The PSU can be slid into a fitter, I’m not sure whether this might be troublesome for high-end large PSU’s. There aren’t that many cables and they’re typically long enough to reach out any part of the motherboard.
An interesting system that Xilence used here is the “one MOLEX two SATA-devices” hot-plug PCB. You simply connect the power connectors and SATA cables once, and then you can switch out hard drives as much as you like. The top part is for the four 2.5” drives, the bottom is for six 3.5” drives. Also included on the 3.5” PCB’s are two 3-pin fan connectors per piece. It’s a shame Xilence didn’t use a black PCB for this.
Like in the top compartment, the bottom compartment sports a bunch – four to be precise – of 5.25” bay slots. Installation is very straightforward with these tool-less screws.
Last but not least, the back of the case opened up. The case allows for extensive cable management and has space for the thickest cables, like a 24-pin ATX, to be put back there.
