Taking a look inside and starting with the rear we can see quite a few options. This is where the PSU, SSDs, hard drives and optical drive will all be housed. This is to allow for better airflow to the front zone which will of course account for better thermal performance, it also helps the build look cleaner.

A closer look reveals the main board that controls the front IO panel. This is nicely tucked out of the way towards the front of the case.

As mentioned there is a fan controller in the back that users will be able to connect up to 3 fans to as standard.

This is the 2.5″ drive cage, the drives will sit on their side as will the PSU, this is to keep from needing to make the case overly wide to fit everything in.

This case will double as 5.25″ and the 3.5″ drive bays. Again, everything will be set on it’s side to save room.

As mentioned the PSU will be sat on its side, there are 4 rubber feet to set it on and a bit of insulation where it will touch the case to help keep noise from vibration to a minimum.

Looking up at the inside of the case and you will notice some screws, these are so users can completely remove the top panel to do what they like? I am not a modder by trade but this case makes me wish I had the tools to do some modding. Everything is easily removed and customized. Myself, I would put either a couple of fans on the top panel or a nice 220/280mm rad would go nicely, although it would be a snug fit.

There are quite a few places to route zipties on the back of the motherboard tray so as to help make sure we can route cables out of the way as easy as possible.
