The PSU installs easily enough and there’s plenty of room here for a bit of excess cable. Don’t worry if you need more room, as you can completely remove the 3.5″ drive bays if you needed to.

As I said before, the 2.5″ drives are tool-free, just slide them down and they’ll click into place.

Getting our main components installed was really easy, as there’s a lot of space to play around with here. Even our massive Sapphire R9 270X Toxic, one of the largest GPUs on the market, still has plenty of room to breathe here. There’s clearance for up a GPU of up to 370mm in total!

The bottom cable routing holes are working really well, meaning we don’t have to trail cables over or under the GPU from the routing holes at the back.

The excellent cable routing also helps keep any excess cable from running the overall airflow within the chassis, allowing that 140mm fan to blow directly at our GPU and CPU.

Obviously, this chassis has room for two, perhaps even three GPUs, dependant on your motherboards configuration; or any other expansion cards for that matter.

Lots of space for a large CPU cooler (up to 170mm tall!) with room in the back for a fairly thick radiator, and let’s not forget all those extra fan and radiator mounts on the top panel; more than enough options for AIO, air, or even custom loop water cooling installations.

Overall, this is a great looking build, with clean cable routing, good airflow and plenty of noise dampening materials to keep things as whisper quiet as possible.
