ID Cooling T60 SFX Case Review

Up Close: Interior
With the left hand side panel removed we get our first glimpse of the small but perfectly formed interior of the T60. If you've not already sussed, the case takes the smaller SFX PSU, which is mounted diagonally on its side at the front of the case. As there's very little by way of direct ventilation here you'd be wise to mount it with the PSU fan facing inwards. the ventilation holes on the side panels providing a route out for some of the hot air generated. 2.5" drive storage is in the form of a removable red rack that screws to the floor and roof of the case. mounting drives internally on this rack will of course correspondingly reduce the max CPU cooler height from what is already quite a limiting 125mm.
The images below show the interlocking nature of the Aluminium panels. As the entire structure is made up in this manner and is without rivets it should be relatively easy to take it apart, perfect if the red team based gamer colouring isn't to your liking, or you fancy modding in a window or perhaps a roof mounted fan vent for an AIO.
With the 2.5" rack removed we can better see into the interior of the T60. At first glance it has to be said that it appears there's not a lot in here. In fact, ID Cooling have made use of every inch of space available. With the PSU mounted at the front. the Motherboard goes against the rear wall. Although the other side panel is removable, the vertically mounted motherboard tray is not and doing so does not noticeably improve access as there's no cable management space or routing holes of any sort.
The rear of the case benefits from a single clear bladed 92mm fan, below which we see the twin vented PCI slot covers. There's not a lot of room down there for GPUs, but thankfully there's plenty of ventilation. Up in the roof, along with the IEC lead that connects the PSU to the socket at the back, we also find a mount for the solitary 3.5" drive the T60 can house.
Normally when we turn a case round we comment on the amount of space for cable management, the number of cable management holes and whether or not they're grommeted, and of course the number and distribution of the cable tie points. But as there are, shall we say, none of the above we won't be saying a word on the subject.
