The BUC definitely has its own style; it does not look like a plain old mid-tower. The chassis is all black, which is the only color that it comes in. The actual dimensions of the case are 485 x 210 x 506mm (19.1″ x 8.3″ x 19.9″), which means it is not an overly-large mid-tower, but not a small one either.
The top and bottom of the front bezel extrude out from the case, which gives the BUC a unique look. Towards the bottom of the case there is a honeycomb bezel that covers the 120mm intake fan. Right above it is a single 3.5-inch external drive bay.
Moving up you have 3 5.25-inch drive bays, each one has a honeycomb bezel cover. All the way at the top of the case you have your front panel connection, which include 2 USB 2.0, eSATA, and HD audio. On the right side of these connections is the power button and on the opposite side is the reset button.
On the actual top of the case there is a tray-like section with a single USB 3.0 port. This can be used to put a portable USB 3.0 hard drive on, your keys or anything really. Moving back there is another honeycomb section where you will find another 120mm fan.
Moving on to the side panel of the case, the first thing that catches your attention is the large honeycomb section. This section not only lets people take a glimpse inside of your case it has mounting spots for 2 additional 120mm fans. Also on the side of the case you will see a lock section that when opened reveals the internal drive bays for easy access and hot-swap capabilities.
Around back we have the basic setup. Up top you can see the 120mm exhaust fan and 2 water-cooling holes.
Looking at the bottom of the case you can see a removable fan filter below where your power supply will be mounted. This is pretty much standard on most cases these days.
