A Look Inside
The side panel of the case comes off easily by removing the two thumbscrews. When you remove the side panel you can see it is lined with sound dampening material. This is not your ordinary sound dampening material either. It is much thicker than any other sound dampening material that I have ever seen before. Looking inside AZZA has continued the black theme.
At the front of the case you have the four 5.25-inch drive bays. These use a simple tool-less locking system.
Moving down there is the mounting for the external 3.5-inch drive. Below that there are 5 hard drive trays. These support both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives.
On the bottom of the case is a large ventilated section where your power supply will go. While there is a spot for a bottom-mounted case fan it is covered by the same thick sound-dampening material. You can remove this material if you do wish to install a fan here. The seven expansion slots use a honeycomb design and are held into place with thumbscrews.
There is a large CPU cutout in the center of the motherboard tray. This will allow you to install an aftermarket CPU cooler without having to remove your motherboard from the case. There are 4 large cable routing holes on the motherboard tray. While they do not have the rubber inserts installed the metal is rounded so you shouldn’t tear or rip your cables. On thing missing from this case is a routing hole for your CPU power connector.
If we take the opposite side panel of the case off we can see how everything is setup. On thing I noticed is that there is not a lot of space between the back of the motherboard tray and the back of the case. It really does not look like we will be able to route many of our cables.
