- Installation experience and Conclusion
There’s a large enough cut out on the top so that you can remove the the top panel. As you can see there’s 2x rubber grommets for water cooling tubes and smaller ones are for fan cables from water cooling radiators. The rear has a 140mm/120mm fan mount with a 140mm fan pre-installed with the case. At the side of the 9x vented PCI slots, there’s a vertical anti-left PCI slot so that you can re-route your mouse/keyboard cables through it and get it secured. After installing the security lock loop that comes through the corner of the left side panel on the rear and secure the system with a small padlock, you have a secured system good enough that you can roam around the lan party without worrying someone might open the system up…unless the padlock is easy enough to be opened.
There are 3 fan filter slides: From the left for the top panel which has 200mm fan, the smallest one for the PSU base and the other one below the HDD/SSD bays (with screw holes?). The top filter slides in and out easily whereas both the bottom filter would require to tilt the case enough to remove the slides as they latches with the case once you slide them in. If the case feets were slightly bigger, I think you don’t require to tilt the case, but its not really a big deal at all.
What you get with the case? a toolbox containing 48x M3*5 screws for 2.5″ drives, 13x M3*6 screws to secure the motherboard, 4x #6-32*6 screws for securing the power supply, 11 standoffs with 1 standoff pre-installed on the motherboard plate, 18x M3*6 thumbscrews for securing 5.25″ drives, 8x ^332*27.5 screws for installing 2 fans on the side panels, a standoff socket and 16x #6-32*10 screws for 3.5″ hard drives, security lock loop, few strips of cable ties and a 8 pin EPS ATX extension cable (18 AWG wiring), a speaker buzzer and a external 3.5″ rails. The carton box contains 8x 3.5″/2.5″ (you’ll need to secure it using screws provided) HDD trays.
