A Look Inside
Moving inside the case the first thing that really jumps out is the large graphics card holder. This will take the load off of your longer video cards so they do not droop down. Also Zalman has included a 92mm fan that you can attach to the holder for more cooling. The motherboard tray has six large openings in it for cable routing.
The 10 drive bays use a simple tool-less system which will lock your drives in place. There are a total of 4 drive trays included which support 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hard drives.
At the bottom of the case there is room for either a 120mm or 140mm cooling fan. There are two large rubber sections that will not only lift your power supply up off the bottom of the case, but also dampen some of the vibration. The 7 expansion slots are removable and do have a locking section that does need to be removed before you can remove them.
At the top of the case you do of course have the two 120mm fans. Just to note all of the included fans have 3 pin connectors so you can easily connect them to your motherboard or the included fan controller.
If we take the other side panel off we can see how the case is set up and how your cables will be routed. There is actually not much of any room behind the motherboard tray. Zalman wants you to route all of your cables on the far left side of the case, which should work out pretty well as there is a lot of room there. Included in the case is a bag of goodies that has all of your mounting hardware, 92mm cooling fan, CPU power extension cable, VGA card holders and the user’s guide.
