Internal Features

Opening up the side panel shows you a pretty compact interior. Not much room to move around and while there are no sharp edges, not everything is rounded off so watch your hands when installing components. However, the interior of the panels are painted the same as the exterior which keeps a consistent pattern. Also,  the internal trays and cages are all a nice silver keeping things aesthetically pleasing even inside.

HDDs and SSDs are handled at the front of the case, either in the large hard drive cage, underneath it in the small 2.5″ bay, or in the 3.5″ converted ODD bay at the top.

At the rear we have the twin impellers responsible for removing all the warm air from the case. The top mounted one is 14cm whereas the rear is 12cm.

Optical drives can be installed up the front, with only one slot to begin with as the one beneath it is filled with a 3.5″ converter. However, this can be easily removed should you wish two drives in there.

The PSU bay has some silicon spacers to help reduce any PSU noise output.

Around the backwe can see that there’s some efforts been made at cable management. With such an open design, there shouldn’t be too many problems with keeping things neat. However, one complaint I do have is that while the number of front panel ports is impressive, that number of cables just from that part of the case is a bit constricting. That’s a lot of cable that might not necessarily be needed.
