With the side panel removed, you can see we’ve got a hard drive mounting bracket running right across the chassis. This means we don’t need to waste space with bulky hard drive caddies, freeing up space for other hardware.

The drive tray can be removed via four screws, allowing you to easily install your drives, then re-mount the entire bracket.

With it removed, it also becomes easier to install the rest of your hardware. The motherboard standoffs are pre-installed and there are a few well-placed cable routing cut-outs, so the installation process should be nice and easy.

In the base, you can see where the PSU mounts, as well as space for an extra fan, which I would use for an exhaust as the PSU already vents downwards. This isn’t the most efficient cooling path, but it’s a fair compromise for the sake of the small form factor of the chassis.

An extra HDD mount tucked into the base of the chassis.

The rear 120mm fan is mounted as an exhaust, but you could always swap this out for an AIO cooler for your CPU or even your GPU.

Each of the expansion slots is fitted with a reusable ventilated cover and since this is a Micr0-ATX chassis, you should be able to get two graphics cards in here.

In the front, a small bracket for the slim ODD drive, but little else.

The top panel cover clips off, allowing you access to dual 120mm fan mounts, or you could install a 120/240mm radiator here dependent on your GPU configuration.

The cover featured a mesh and a fine filter, so it should help keep the airflow to your chassis free from dust and debris.

Behind the motherboard, there’s a little bit of space for cable management, as well as a few cable tie loops to help keep everything neat and tidy.

Even better, there are two more 2.5″ drive mounts here, giving you a great range of storage options throughout the Styx.
