Up Close: Interior
"That's the biggest case interior i've ever seen"..."That's the biggest case interior I've ever seen"...If you don't get the reference, then I recommend you go and refresh you memories of classic Arnie films, and in particular Predator, it's not all "Get to the Chopper" you know. On a more serious note, What the feck is going on in here??? OK, so there's a massive CPU cut out, and we already know the case can accept pretty much any motherboard known to man, But what of all those holes towards the front? are they for HDD racks??? well as it happens yes, a great many of them are.
The front of the case is able to support 4x120mm fans, and in fact, Anidees have pre fitted no less than four of their RGB enabled 120mm units. Yes guys and girls, we think this is a first, and as such should be appreciated. If you're more of a fan of the 140mm fan, then you'll be pleased to know it'll take up to three of them in place of the 120s.
The base of the case reveals the now familiar false floor which coevers the PSU and HDD cages. This false floor actually stops 100mm short of the front fans, meaning that you've got space for a 480mm 100mm thick rad in push, or a 75mm rad in push pull. If you want something thicker than that, then the entire false floor can be removed. My god are we turned on by the rad opportunities here.
Also on the floor there are mounts for 3.5" and 2.5" drives, as well as cable management holes for GPU and potentially water cooling tubing.
The rear of the case has expansion points for 10 horizontal and an additional two vertical PCI attachments. Where have you ever read that before???
My god that's a lot of roof space, We've never seen so many slots in one place...What can we fit up here??? Well if you carry on reading, you'll find out...
