The Sentey Arvina doesn’t have your simple interior like other cases, but a well designed and well equipped one. The interior is completely tool-free, minus the motherboard screws, and comes with some goodies. A white box holds a SATA cable and power cable for the external SATA port and a CD with the drivers for the card reader. A red accessory box is attached to the lower left corner of the case, which can be removed and reattached if you’d like.
Inside the accessory box are a mini-screwdriver, standoffs and screws, cleaning cloth, PCI slot cover, and two motherboard risers.
The first thing you’ll probably come across in this case once you remove the side panel is the VGA cooler going across the middle of the case. The VGA cooler is comprised of two 80mm blue LED fans. The cooler swings wide open by just a push or you can remove the cooler completely until you’re done with the installation.
Towards the front of the case is the hard drive cage which houses up to five 3.5” or 2.5” drives. Each of the bays is easily removed by just a push of the red button.
The hard drive cage is easily removable by pulling down on the red clip at the top of the cage and sliding out at the same time. Removing the cage gives you access to the front 140mm blue LED intake fan.
Moving up are the five external 5.25” drive bays, four of which have tool-free devices attached to them.
On the bottom of the case are two ventilation slots, one for the PSU fan and one for an additional 120/140mm fan which can be installed. Rubber feet and a rubber cover help reduce the vibration from the PSU. Moving up the rear of the case are the seven expansion slots with tool-free devices and vented slot covers, which unfortunately aren’t reusable.
Moving up again are the rear 120mm blue LED exhaust fan and top two 120mm blue LED fans. A large motherboard cutout should support most any CPU cooler installation while the motherboard is already installed.
Cable management is also easily done through the various cutouts on the motherboard tray to send wires to the opposing side, where cable management ties and plenty of room wait for cables.
