    Case Layout and Features

    Front panel controls are located across the top of the case and offer the typical functionality including two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports.  Analog headphone and microphone jacks can be found in the middle.  A three position fan controller and customary power and reset buttons.   While some enthusiasts and reviewers may complain that “more” features need to be included the fact of the matter is, this is all you really need.

    iVektor comes with three external drive bays however, with the bay covers attached you will be hard pressed to know exactly where they are.  All too often we find case designs that ignore the drive bay design by either leaving them flat plastic or covering them in ventilation mesh.  Enermax has chosen to embrace the iVektor design by passing the vertical bars across the drive bay covers and integrating a release mechanism into the design. 

    Case Cooling

    As indicated by the case specifications there are a total of six fan locations in the iVektor.  The case comes with two fans preinstalled and can be found at the front and back of the case. 

    A secondary 120mm fan can be installed up front by moving the stock fan either up or down.  You can install a 240mm (dual 120mm fan) watercooler into the iVektor using the top fan locations.

    Under the case you’ll find a removable fine mesh filter covering a final optional fan location which is also next to the PSU cooling grill.  The plastic feet feature soft rubber pads to prevent the case from slipping around and will even help to protect hardwood floors, assuming that is your flooring choice in the computer room.
