    Hardware Installation

    The interior is more traditional in its layout with a durable looking black finish and every edge rounded for safety.  Motherboard support is offered for micro-ATX, ATX and Extended ATX boards.  An oversized 6" x 6" heatsink hole is nicely offset for ease of maintenance.  Five rubber grommets and three open holes work with the extra space behind the motherboard to help route cables nicely out of sight.
    To test the ATX installation I mounted the Gigabyte X79 UD7 OC Motherboard with a Thermaltake FrioOCK Heatsink.  The FrioOCK measures in at 143(L) x 136.8(W) x 158.4(H) mm (with 2 Fans).  As you can see here there is plenty of clearance even before we take into account the extra space provided by the door design.
    Video cards up to 12.5" are supported natively according to the specifications.  This should allow for most premium cards to fit.  The design of the hard drive cage prevents all but the most motivated modder from increasing that space.
