A Look Inside
When I took the side panel off I was surprised to see an all silver interior. Almost every case we review now has a black interior, but it is nice to see the silver again. There is a large support bar / VGA card holder in the center of the case. This not only gives your case support, but also holds longer video cards in place.
There is quite a large hard drive cage on the Tank case. It houses 6 hard drives and can be completely removed from the case itself.
The housing is very simple. There is a section that will lift your power supply off the bottom of the case for ample airflow. Above that you have the PCI slots, 8 total. They are secured with thumbscrews and have ventilation holes on them.
Each of the three 140mm fans use a 3pin fan connector that is not that long. Most motherboards do have 3pin fan connectors so connecting these fans to your motherboard should not be a problem. Cubitek does include two 3pin extensions, one of which you can connect 2 fans to.
The 5.25-inch drive days are pretty basic. You can see the 5.25-inch to 3.5-inch adapter in the bottom bay. It can be removed so you can use the bay for a 5.25-inch drive. If we take the opposite side panel off you can see there is quite a lot of room to hide cables behind the motherboard tray. Also inside you will find the box of goodies which has all of your mounting hardware and accessories.
