    Interior and Drive Features

    We have already talked about the side door but the fan setup really required a second look.  The included 200mm fan may not be lighted, a bummer for sure, but it is mounted using a 20mm Plug and Play system.  This little spring loaded plug takes away the hassle of running the side panel wiring.  No more messing with plugs when removing and replacing the side panel.  We really hope this catches on but it does limit the replacement options for those not comfortable with a soldering iron.  Maybe in the future they will make this switch a separate component with a 3pin fan plug for easy fan replacements.
    The white and black outside may make a statement but the contrasting black interior with its blue accents is just as bold.  It's really hard to do this justice in pictures.
    Removing the right door panel reveals motherboard tray with a spacious heatsink access measuring just less than 6 x 8 inches.  Five separate cable slots with rubber gaskets provide options for routing cabling through the almost 3/4 inch clearing behind the board.  Several anchors are present for wire ties bout they are isolated to the front side of the case.

    The left side reveals a more traditional drive cage layout.  The four front 5.25" five bays can be installed using the blue accented clips.  Edges are nicely rounded and the finish looks durable enough to survive several evolutions in hardware.  An offset rail provides a firm mount for your power supplies that should support even the largest units.
