A Look Inside
Getting inside the case is pretty simple. Just remove the 2 thumbscrews on the side panel and slide it off. When you take the panel off you can see the included 180mm LED fan. This fan has the typical 4pin molex connection.
As we get the side panel out of the way we can take a look inside the case. Sentey has gone with an all black interior, which is becoming standard on all cases these days. They are also using red accents on parts of the case. Inside the case you will find mounting screws and the user’s manual.
Starting on the bottom of the case you can see the 2 large ventilation spots. On will be where your power supply goes and the other is for an optional 80mm or 120mm fan. The PCI slots use a tool-less design, I’m never a fan of these, but we will see how well these work. The PCI slot covers are the ones that you have to break off the case, this saves money for the case manufacturer, but I don’t like it.
Moving up to the top of the case you can see the 2 fans. The rear fan is a 120mm black fan and the top fan is a 140mm clear LED fan. There is a large CPU cutout, which makes it possible to install after-market CPU coolers without having to remove your motherboard. Looking at the rest of the inside of the case there are many cutouts for routing cables.
The internal hard drive bay hold 4 removable trays, which can mount both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives. One thing to mention here is that the main part of the tray is made of metal, not plastic like we have seen on many other cases.
Now from the photos below it looks like you have four internal 5.25-inch drive bays, but only 3 are usable. You are able to mount a hard drive or something else internal in the extra bay. These bays use a tool-less locking system as well.
As far as connections inside of the case you have the typical front panel connectors as well as, HD audio, 2 USB, and the fan controller. When I did open the case I did notice that one of the LED’s was just sitting there inside of the case. This was a disappointment.
