Up Close: Interior
In the images below we've taken the right hand side panel off (the one with the window in it). As you can see the upper half of this side is dominated by a large bracket running from the front to the back of the case. This bracket is the main drive mount and is capable of holding a brace of 3.5" or 2.5" drives. With the bracket removed we get a better view into the interior and can see immediately that as the CPU cut out is low down we're dealing with an inverted motherboard design (as if the window on the wrong side wasn't a big enough give away). There's also a couple of management holes over on the left towards the front of the case, however there's no evidence of grommets.
Looking towards the rear we can see a single 120mm fan set to extract. Above this there's five vented PCI slot covers and to the left of the fan the rear I/O. In the bottom of the case we find a mount for a 120mm fan adjacent to the large PSU cut out and mounting bracket.
The front of the case has a removable bracket designed to support a slim line optical drive. If mounted this drive will be hard up against the edge of the PSU. Up in the roof there's space for two 120mm fans and a 240mm radiator.
The reverse of the case makes little room for cable management, with just 12mm available it's going to be tight back here, a problem not made any easier by something of a scarcity of cable management points. There are a few huge ones, but that's about it. On the plus side you do get a couple of 2.5" stealth mounts to play with.
The roof mesh is removable, but only from the inside of the case. To be honest we were expecting a push to release sort of thing so couldn't understand why it wouldn't come of when we gave it a prod.
