Up Close:  Rear, Base and Stripped 

The rear of the case is able to take a 120mm fan on slotted mounts, although none is actually included in this position.  Towards the top, where the roof meets the rear we can see the two small screws that when removed release the roof section allowing it to be slid rearwards and lifted off. The eight vented PCI slot covers are of the traditional design in that each is held in with its own screw, something not always seen on cases at this price point.

The case rests on four rather rigid clip in feet, with the whole of the underside being given over to one giant mesh filter.  This filter covers not just the PSU mount area but also the 2x120mm fan mounts.  The picture below right also shows the clip that secures the front panel.

The removal of the front panel exposes a second mesh filter and the single 120mm fan that comes with the case.  If you're the sort that likes to tinker you'll have already noticed that the mesh panel is held in with simple tabs making it very easy to remove and mod should you so desire.

With the roof off we can see that there appears to be just a smidge under 50mm of space to be had up here.  To be safe we wouldn't try putting anything up here bigger than 45mm though as the interior of the roof section has plenty of small height variations.

Good case with decent options for cooling.
I like the fact that it has 5 1/4" bays on the front. For me, this is necessary.
The price is pretty good too.Quote

You excite a man with the possibility of an OC3D video only for those dreams to be squashed and thrown away.

It just looks so odd to me with that small window and the tall roof. I don't think I could have this on my desk without being annoyed by that on a daily basis.Quote

I can second that, it just looks uninspiring.Quote
