Side panels and internal layout.
The big side panel with 2 x 120 mm fans is demounted by removing six thumb screws.
One screw needs to be removed to open up the smaller side panel which opens like a door and can be dismounted thereafter.
Antec has pre-mounted 2 x 120 mm fans on the side panel; these turn inwards towards the hardware. They are placed in a height so they cool the GFX-cards. The side panel has two additional 120 mm fan locations which are on height with the CPU and RAM.
The smaller side panel contains on both sides of the case room for 3 x 120 mm fans. These lead in air into the case to cool optical and harddrives. Mesh lets the air through.
Motherboards of sizes Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX and Standard-ATX can be mounted onto the detachable motherboard tray.
There is room lengthwise for GFX-cards as long as 406 mm.
The CPU cooler can have a maximum hight of 160 mm. This is if there is no 120 mm fan mounted on the side panel – if this is so, then there is 150 mm left to work with.
The inside is yellow and black like the outside and it is possible to look right through the side panel.
3x 120 mm fans can be mounted on the smaller side panel as we mentioned earlier. The motherboard tray is fitted with a big oblong hole for easy access when changing the CPU-cooler.
Antec has fitted three cable strips on the backside of the motherboard tray.
The options of hiding the cables away are mediocre. It is possible to lead the cables in the bottom and in the vertical space in the middle. We miss a hole in the top of the case so the EPS 12V power jack from the power supply could be lead behind the motherboard tray to the area around the CPU.
