Complete System


Fitting all of our components couldn’t have been more straight forward here, as everything fit with ease. The cable routing looks a little rough, but it’s pretty decent overall and all major cables are well out-of-the-way of airflow and fans.

There are dedicated 2.5″ bays, but since I’m using a single drive, it was much easier to use the slide out trays at the base.

The PSU fit with a huge amount of space to spare, giving you extra room for spare cables or even a bigger PSU if required.

Obviously more than enough room here for multi-GPU configuration. Just keep in mind that cards lower down will be limited by the placement of the HDD bays.

There’s a small cable routing hole just behind the motherboard at the top for the 8-pin CPU cable, but you may need to route this cable before installing the motherboard as it gets partially covered once it is installed.

We’re not using the 5.25″ drive bays in this build, so it doubled up nicely as a bit of cable storage. There’s still a good amount of space behind the motherboard too, but so long as they’re out of sight, what’s the difference.

The Sapphire R9 270X Tri-X Toxic is a colossal graphics card, but thanks to that mid-section being clear, it fit with a huge amount of room to spare and has lots of breathing room for airflow from any front mounted fans.

Overall, a very clean and tidy looking build, with the added bonus of that huge side panel window giving a very uncompromising view of the interior; perfect for showing off your shiny new hardware.
