Removing the side panel shows the fan and reveals the hardware included with the case, all labeled for their specific duty.
The inside of the case is completely black; this includes a lot of the cables and hardware too. Towards the front of the case are two hard drive cages with each holding up to four drives. Each cage fits in the area of three 5.25” drive bays.
Above the two cages are the three external 5.25” drive bays, one of which has a 5.25” to 3.5” adapter. The drives are secured by tool-free devices.
Towards the rear of the case is the power supply slot which is vented. A removable filter also makes collecting and removing dust much easier. Four rubber studs also help support the power supply in the case and reduce some vibration and noise. Above that are the seven expansion slots and four water cooling holes.
The rear 120mm exhaust fan sits above the expansion slots and the other two exhaust fans can be clearly seen on the top of the case.
On the motherboard tray there is also a CPU cooler cutout and two smaller cutouts for cable management. The two smaller cutouts have rubber pads on them to hold and protect the cables. The cables can easily fit on the other side of the case because on the side panel there is a raised edge where these two wire holes poke through.
