A Look Inside
Getting inside the case requires you to remove the entire glass side panel. This is done by removing the four thumbscrews on the panel.
Once we have the side panel removed we can see how the inside of the case is designed. In Win has made the inside of the case black, which looks really good.
Starting at the top of the case there are three hot-swappable drive bays. These drive bays support both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives. Your drives will be attached to the removable trays. What makes these trays hot-swappable is that there is a backplane on the other side of the case that your drives will connect to once they are installed.
Below the main hard drive cages there are two spots to install 2.5-inch drives. These come out easily by removing a single thumbscrew. Below that is room to install a 140 mm fan. Keep in mind no fans are actually included with this case.
Towards the bottom of the case is where you will mount your power supply. In Win has a warning sticker to let you know to install your power supply with the fan facing up. The eight expansion slots use normal screws, I really would have liked to have seen thumbscrews here. Moving up we can see the 90 mm fan mount and the very large CPU cut out.
Taking the back side panel of the case off we can really see how the case is setup. There is quite a lot of room behind the motherboard tray to route all of your cables.
Included with the case is a bag of goodies that includes: extension cables for your CPU power cable and 24pin ATX power cable, USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter, mounting hardware, cable ties & organizers, microfiber cleaning cloth and the user’s guide.
