Anidees AI Crystal Tempered Glass Case Review
Up Close: Interior
Having carefully lifted off the side and front panels it's finally time to take a look inside. On doing so, three thoughts immediately spring to mind. First, where are the cable management holes. Second, where are the drive cages, Third, what's that plastic thing towards the front? Don't worry chaps, all will be revealed. While we're here though, we thought it a shame that they couldn't get the Anidees Logo sticker on straight.
As it turns out, the lack of cable management holes, and the nature of the plastic thing are one in the same. The "plastic thing" is actually a clever little cover for the two cable management holes which lie beneath it. The cover is moulded and angled in such a way as to allow major cables such as the 24 pin ATX, and the GPU cables to pass trough from behind and emerge exactly where they are needed. We'll see in the build section how effective it is at both covering the cables whilst allowing their passage.
As with a lot of cases these days the AI has a false floor covering the PSU area below. We think that while this is nice in many cases, it's absolutely essential in a case with as much glass in it is this one. Although it is largely devoid of features, the false floor does have a handy dandy cable management hole. We do though think it's perhaps a little large and could done with being closer to the motherboard as well as perhaps rotated 90 degrees.
The rear of the AI sports 7 vented PCI slot covers as well as a 140mm white LED fan. Up in the roof we can again see the mounts for 120mm and 140mm based cooling solutions, and at first glance there appears to be a decent amount of room up there for mega radage.
