A Closer Look: Exterior

Starting with the front of the case we see the front panel. We see that the front panel is tempered glass. Small slits on the sides of the front panel for front panel air intake for the front fans.

Moving to the top of the case we see the front panel I/O. This is comprised of 2 USB 2.0 connectors, 1 headphone, 1 microphone, 1 LED connector that is hooked up to the included fan controller for the RGB fans. The main power button is in the middle of the of the I/O. On the right side of the, there is 1 HDD indicator light, 1 reset switch, 2 USB 3.0 connectors, and a fan controller button, that upon further review is not there, this is merely a placeholder for one.

Behind the I/O is the top panel. This has a nice aesthetic to it. If you look at this piece at an angle you can see that there are slits in this panel for airflow for the top mounted fans. This panel is removed by a thumb screw that is located on the back side of the case.

On the left side of the case, we see a nice piece of thick tempered glass. It measures at 4mm thick. This is attached to the case via hinges on the back side toward the rear of the case. The tempered glass themselves attach to the front of the case with magnets.

Moving to the back of the case we see the rear I/O cutout. We see a rear fan exhaust and a single 120mm fan that comes preinstalled. Below that we see 8 expansion slots. These are removed by the single thumbscrew securing the plate.

Flipping the case on its side we see the bottom of the case. There are 4 large feet that help raise the case off the ground, with rubber padding on the bottom of them to help the case stay put on slippery surfaces. We also see a removable dust filter for the power supply.

The right side of the case looks identical to the left side with a nice thick piece of tempered glass that is on a hinge and secured with magnets.
