Installation

Installation was a dream. I had an egregious amount of space in which to work, and developed a new appreciation for modern full-ATX cases.

I believe that this is the first case I've reviewed which positions the power supply at the bottom of the case. I like the design for its aforementioned airflow improvements. I would have liked to see a motherboard tray in a case this high-end.


Expansion cards went in without a problem. The black mesh expansion bay covers in the pictures are PCI-Slot Ventilation Brackets from Nexus Technology-I couldn't stand the solid covers which Cooler Master includes.


The front drive bays are protected by doors on each side. A simple press opens them and allows the user to remove the bay covers. Optical drive installation went fine-the drive slipped right in and I locked it in place using a push-button lock. I did have a little bit of a problem removing the hard drive cage. It has noise-dampening bumpers on it, and they make for a very, very tight squeeze. Really, I had to pull so hard that I thought I was awkwardly bending something. I think I damaged the cage a little, too, but it still works.


I'm not the best cable-runner, but I fancy one with stronger cable-fu than I would be able to efficiently use the included cable ties to organize power supply wires. I swap power supplies often for reviews, so this is not an option for me. I did route some cables through the back panel, though.


The rear looks pretty cool, too.
