At the top of the case you have your front panel connectors. Alongside the two 3.5mm ports and an oversized, hooded power button.

Next to these is an indented bay, there’s three USB 2.0 ports and a single – blue highlighted – USB 3.0 port.

Just above and behind the front panel connections is an SSD dock. You can view the power and data ports through a clear plastic screen which is definately more of an enthusiast, hardware nerd feature.

The underside of the DF-85 has four rubber feet which help keep the case stable incase it takes a knock.

At the back of the case there’s a nicely sized hole where the PSU sits. However, oddly the case doesn’t have a grilled hole for air intake. Instead there are a few rubber spacers that allows air to be drawn from directly under the power supply.

Moving upwards, next to the PCI brackets you have two oversized watercooling tube holes with rubber surrounds.

    Hola A Todos, yo tengo este case y cada vez estoy mas complacido de haberme decidido por el, si es muy costoso y mas para mi que tuve que importarlo y por su peso salio aun mas caro, pero a la larga es una inversion para quienes queremos tener lo mejor y con las mejores prestaciones, es muy silencioso con los 7 ventiladores en bajo la ventilacion es espectacular ninguno de mis 5 discos pasa de los 35ºC y ni hablar de la board, aunque para complementar esta inversion a mi core i7 2600k le puse un Thermalright Silver Arrow Dual 14cm que en 800 y 900 RPM mantiene mi CPU en 34 y 38ºC y cuando lo esfuerzo demasiado llega a los 45ºC.
    La organizacion del cableado en la tapa derecha es lo mejor, es muy espacioso y da lugar a un mayor ventilacion del interior.

    Hello To All, I have this case and every time I’m more pleased with having chosen for him, if it is too expensive and more to me that I had to import it and went about their weight even more expensive, but ultimately is an investment for those we have the best and the best performance, is very quiet with 7 fans in the ventilation is spectacular none of my 5-disc beyond 35 º C and not to mention the board, but to complement this investment to my core i7 2600K will I put a Thermalright Dual 14cm Silver Arrow in 800 and 900 RPM keeps my CPU at 34 and 38 º C and when I try too reaches 45 º C.
    The organization of the wiring at the top right is the best, is very spacious and leads to increased ventilation of the interior.
