Anidees AI-6 Review
Up Close: Interior Overview and Storage
The interior of the AI-6 is finished in the same White as the exterior with the four vertical and one horizontal black rubber grometed cable management holes giving the only real contrast. The A16 sports a large CPU cut out enabling Heatsinks to be changed without motherboard removal.
The AI-6 has three 5.25" bays, with the lowermost being fitted with an easily removable 3.5" converter. Plenty of room then for a double bay res and fan controller, or if you absolutely insist on living in the past, an optical drive. Mounting devices into the 5.25" bays requires the use of that most complicated of tools, the screwdriver.
There's a total of 7 internal 3.5" bays, with each one being able to alternatively accommodate a 5.25" drive. The upper most bay is riveted into the bottom of the 5.25" bays so if you're looking to remove it I we hope you had Mr Dremel on your Christmas list. The other 6 bays are separated into 2 racks of 3 each. Either or both of the racks can be removed by means of rather attractive chromed knurled thumb screws. With both racks in place the case is able to accommodate GPUs up to 280mm, and with the rack removed up to 428mm. As the racks can be split, it makes it possible to accommodate a gargantuan GPU without having to lose all your storage space.
With the 3.5" racks removed we get a better view of the internal front of the AI-6. Although not designed to accommodate a 240 or 280 radiator we think with a small amount of modding this is entirely achievable. You will need to remove the plastic spacer/guide at that sits on the bottom of the case, which in turn will mean taking the base of the case to reach the screws and clips retaining it, and depending on the specific model of radiator you're using you may well also have to chop out the riveted upper 3.5" bay we talked about earlier.
