A Look Inside
Opening the case up is very easy all you have to do is pull down on the 2 latches and the panel will come right off. This has to be one of the easiest systems for removing a side panel. The inside of the case has an all black design, which is pretty much standard these days. The thing that really caught my eye was the amount of routing holes there were. There are 10 total, 8 of which have the rubber inserts in them.
Starting at the front of the case you can see the 2 hard drive cages. Each cage houses 3 removable bays that will fit both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives. You can also see that the 200mm intake fan is right in front of the drive bays so your hard drives will be kept cool.
Moving up you have the 4 5.25-inch drive bays. They use a tool-less locking system so installing your optical drives should be fairly simple.
Looking towards the back of the case you can see the honeycomb opening in the base of the case. This is for your power supply to intake air from. The PCI slot covers are pretty basic, although they do use thumbscrews, which I do like.
At the top of the case you have the larger 200mm fan and at the back of the case is the 120mm exhaust fan. The 2 200mm fans are while LED fans, which should appeal to many people. There is a large CPU cutout on this case, more than enough room to install your CPU cooler without having to remove the motherboard.
If we take a look at the backside of the case we can see how we will be running many of the cables. Corsair includes many zip-ties along with a getting started guide and mounting screws.
