A Closer Look: Interior

Opening the left side panel tempered glass and removing it we are greeted with the inside of the case. Here we can see the motherboard tray and the internals. The motherboard tray has pre-installed standoffs for an ATX motherboard. This case has pre-drilled holes for mATX and ITX motherboards as well. Multiple cutouts are observed for cable management as well as what appears to be a rail system for water-cooling support.

Included with this case is a power supply shroud. This is a good feature on this case for concealment of the power supply and the cables. There is a nice window cutout to display the brand of your power supply as well. On top of the power supply shroud are 2 mounting points for 120mm fans.

Moving to the front of the case we see that the power supply shroud does not fully extend to the front of the case, this leaves room for radiator support.

Pre-installed in this case are 4 RGB fans, 3 of which are in the front panel position. Here we can see these pre-installed fans. We can see that they have cable sleeving on the wires, another premium touch.

After removing the top panel, we see 2 additional mounting points for 2 more 120mm or 140mm fans.

On the rear of the case, we see the 4th pre-installed RGB fan as well as the rear i/o cutout and the 8 expansion slots as we saw from the exterior angles.

Moving to the right side of the case, as we open the tempered glass and remove it we are greeted with the rear of the motherboard tray and the cable management area. Some notable features on the back of this case that I enjoyed were multiple tie-down points for cable management.

Included is an RGB fan controller which has been pre-installed and the fans have been pre-installed into onto this controller. This controller is Molex powered and does include an RGB motherboard cable. I will be installing this onto the motherboard to see if I can control the RGB with the motherboard header.

Below the motherboard tray cutout, we see the SSD bracket. This bracket can hold 2 2.5mm SSD’s. This bracket is removed by 1 thumbscrew.

Near the bottom of the case, we see the power supply shroud. Near the front of that shroud is where the HDD brackets are. There is room for 2 hard drives. This bracket is removable with 1 screw for additional power supply cable management.
