Up Close: Interior
The interior of the case is accessed by means of removing 3 screws from the rear of the case and then sliding and lifting of the whole of the side and roof section as one piece. This gives good all round access to the inside of the case. It's necessary to remove this section in order to remove and clean the top fan intake filter (shown below right)
It's pretty hard to photograph the inside of the case as it's already pretty full before you even start the build. In simple terms the front half is taken up by the PSU and drive bays, with the rear area being for the Motherboard. Storage wise the SG08 can accommodate a single 3.5" HDD or 2 x 2.5" drives. There is no 5.25" bay as such so if you want to fit an optical drive your going to need to splash out on a slimline model. The image in the bottom right shows the case fully stripped of all that is removable. The fan and the filter down the right hand side are easy enough to spot. Immediately in front of the filter is the USB3 -USB2 adaptor, a few cable ties and then to the left lies an adjustable fan duct with filter. this is intended to channel air towards the intake of your chosen GPU. Above this fan duct we see on the left the 3.5" drive bay and the mounting plate for the slimline optical drive.
