Upon removing the two thumbscrews from the side panel it reveals the acoustic foam sound insulation material covering the entire inside of the side panel.
The insulation is soft and squishy, not hard and scratchy like some other cases. Cooler Master took the effort to cover every inch of the inside of the case possible which includes the bottom, top and other side.
Starting on the bottom right side of the case is the internal three 3.5″ bay drive cage. Right above the cage are the two 3.5″ external bays and five 5.25″ external bays. I’m not sure why Cooler Master chose three internal 3.5″ drives instead of four or five like most other cases. I think most people could do without the external 3.5″ bays and a few less 5.25″ bays.
Attached to the external drive bays are the tool-free designs which fasten the drives to the case. A simple slide locks them into place.
The rear of the case houses a silent 120mm fan above the tool-free design set on the seven expansion slots.
The power supply is found nicely tucked in the upper rear of the case, with cables bundled together. Inside the box you’ll also find the hardware, power cable and user’s manual.
