Installation

Installing my hardware into this case was a breeze and the only problem I ran into was caused by one of the cables from the PSU to the motherboard not being long enough to go behind the motherboard tray.

Cable management was fairly easy in this case, I would have liked to see those rubber inserts in some of the cable holes, though.

As you may see there’s a layer of dust sitting on top of the PSU (and the soundcard above somewhat), this was caused by me experimenting with the placement of the fan on the bottom in this picture. Since the side fan mount has no dust guard (and because I need to vacuum my floor) it sucked in quite a bit over the period I had it installed there.

The tool-free design on all the drive bays made it quick and simple to install drives.

  1. I have this case, and yes I love it too. Clean lines, no evidence of scratched/cut corners. Just amazing.

    About the lack of 3.0 ports. I must admit that it’s the only “let-down” of this case, but tbh my motherboard’s included 3.0 header solved the problem. Everyone should opt for motherboard that has one before buying this case.
