The side panels are the same both sides, there’s some holes at the front to allow the front 140mm fan to intake cool air and have a little handle at the end so you can remove the side panel.

The hot swap bays require either a molex or SATA power connector to power the hard drives and a SATA data cable for each drive.

Unlike some larger cases the PC-Q25 doesn’t have room behind the motherboard tray for hiding cables, which is why it’s a good idea to buy a modular power supply so you only attach the cables you require.

The top fan has a filter to stop dust falling into the case while the system isn’t on. To remove the fan you simply pull it towards you and it pops out.

Here’s the system with an ITX motherboard, GTX680 and a single hard drive. Unfortunately the passive PSU we bought especially for the case was too long to fit at 165mm; you need something 140mm or less.
