Interior


With the side panel removed we see two interesting things, the first being that there is a LOT going on in here in terms of design, but at the same time there is also very little going on, I’ll get to that part in a moment. There are plenty of cut-outs in the read panel, this allows access to mounting / changing your CPU cooler with the motherboard installed, while the others will facilitate cable routing / management.

The front part features a cut away to the blades, this allows for more room for longer graphics cards.

Further down we have some hard drive bays, three of which support both 3.5″ and 2.5″ drives, while an extra one supports 2.5″ only.

The three large bays all feature slide out and fully removable metal trays, these feature thumb screws and are easily accessible, they’re also plug and play thanks to some connectors around the back, which we’ll see in a moment.

The trays are finished in blue and feature the same 2-4mm thick aluminium construction of the rest of the chassis, no cheap plastic parts here.

The back of the chassis features a fan mount, and of course huge amounts of ventilation.

The expansion slot covers are aluminium in construction but are also quite thin, they do bend easily when handled but can be straightened out easily enough by hand also. There are quick release thumb screws on each, handy for quick GPU installations.

The top fan mount supports a standard 120mm fan and is removed in a similar fashion to the 3.5″ hard drive bays.

The PSU mount is pretty simple, you can mount as normal or if you wish you can also remove the blue backing plate prior to attaching it to your PSU, the choice is yours.

DSC_2450

The top of the chassis has a thick mesh, but no fan mounts, so no top mounted radiators or fans are supported without some unsupported modifications.

DSC_2438

The clean blue looks continue around the back, lots of pre-drilled holes here that are ideal for running cable ties through.

DSC_2458

All four hard drive bays feature SATA power and motherboard cables, this means you can just slot your drives into place without worrying about what is going on behind the motherboard, quick and easy. All that now out of the way, let’s get onto building our system inside this beast.
