Removing the side panel reveals the internal design of the BlacX, which you wouldn’t expect to be any other color than black. Towards the front of the case you’ll find the perpendicular drive cage, which houses 5, 3.5” internal drives.
The drives can be installed tool-free with the red/black locking mechanisms for each drive bay. Above the internal drive cage you’ll find two slots for 3.5” external drives, which don’t have any tool-free installation devices.
Above all of the 3.5” drives are your three external 5.25” drive slots, which, like the internal 3.5” drives, have a locking mechanism to have a tool-free installation. Like I mentioned before, while there are four 5.25” slots, the top most slot can’t be used due to the cabling from the dual dock on the top of the chassis.
Moving towards the back of the case you’ll find the bottom mounted PSU slot with ventilation holes. Above that are the seven expansion slots, which have their own tool-free installation device.
Finally in the top left corner of the case you’ll find the two exhaust fans, 120mm rear and 230mm top. The motherboard tray also has a CPU cooler hole and raised standoffs for quicker and easier installations.
The case also comes with the necessary installation hardware and User’s Manual.
