A Look Inside
Getting inside the case is pretty easy, there is a button on the bottom on the case that when pressed in releases the side door. When I first opened the door I took a look at the 200mm fan on the door and realized that the lever on the side of the case moves 4 shutters, which will direct the airflow in to the case. This fan also is connected to a connection on the side of the case so you don’t have to worry about connecting it at all.
Taking a look inside you can see Thermaltake has gone with an all black interior, which is pretty much standard these days. There are quite a few cable routing holes on the case, at first glance I am counting 8, which will make cable management very easy.
The entire bottom of the case is mesh, which makes for great cooling. Moving up you can see the 140mm exhaust fan and 200mm top mounted fan. Also you can see the CPU cutout, it is very large so installing your CPU cooler with your motherboard installed shouldn’t be an issue.
The front 5.25-inch drive bays are pretty simple, not much to talk about here, they do use a tool-less locking system, which is revealed when you remove the other side panel on the case.
When you remove the opposite side panel you can see how Thermaltake is already using the cable management routing holes. There are also 4 clips on the backside of the motherboard tray that will make routing cables easy. Looking down towards the hot-swappable bays you can see Thermaltake has already installed a backplane for the power.
Inside you will also find an accessories box that has cable ties, mounting hardware, 8pin CPU extension cable, mounting piece for your headset, and instructions.
