Up Close: Interior
The interior of the Maker 5 is on the whole very similar to the other cases in the line. A good sized, in fact excellent sized CPU cut out dominates the upper left quadrant, with a neat row of grommeted management holes descending to its right. Up near the roof line there are additional small un-grommet holes for passing through fan cables and the 8pin CPU cable
The maker 5 has a two bay 5.25" cage beneath which we see a rack for 3x3.5" drives. Both these racks can be easily removed, with the maker 5 offering the ability to re site the 3.5" rack if required. Under the sub floor there's an additional two bay 3.5" drive rack, this can also be removed or moved posteriorly to allow room for rads and additional fans in the front.
Towards the rear and above the sub floor there's a pair of 2.5" mounts. These slide easily in from one end and are secured by a knurled thumb bolt at the other. The PSU is located under the sub floor, and sits on a pair of padded rails. Owing to the layout down here , there's basically no limit on PSU length.
Above the 7 vented PCI slots we see a 140mm fan. If you choose to, you could swap this for a 120mm unit as mounts are provided. We'll look more closely at the roof in the next few pages, but for now let's just take a peak up into it and wonder just how much rad space we have?
