The top of the case also has plenty of room for fans and radiators and is also where users will locate the front IO panel which consists of 2x USB 3.0 ports, 4x USB 2.0ports, HD Audio inputs (headphone/mic) and a fan speed controller. As for fans and rads, users will be able to use a wide range of combinations again which include:
1 x 120mm or 2 x 120mm or 3 x 120mm
1 x 140mm or 2 x 140mm
1 x 200mm or 2 x 200mm
1 x 120mm or 1 x 240mm or 1 x 360mm
1 x 140mm or 1 x 280mm or 1 x 420mm
As we saw on the front, removing the top panel allows a look at whatever cooling you have decided to go with for your build in the T81.
The main side panel features a dual bay door design with the main windowed door being removable and also having a lock. While I am not a big fan of locks on side panels I can kind of understand why they are there sometimes and when all is said and done they should deter people from trying to have a cheeky little look around the inside of the case.
Lastly, on the back of the T81, we have 3x holes for water cooling tubes over the standard 2 most cases offer, there is also 8 PCI expansion bays over the norm of 7 we are used to seeing on most cases. The T81 also comes with a 140mm rear exhaust fan pre-installed and of course we can also find the cut outs for the rear IO of the motherboard and the bottom mounted PSU on the back as well.
