Right side


Business as usual, that's what you get when you have a look at the right hand side panel. It's looks are really unspectacular and only in the bottom right corner there are some vent holes. As soon as we remove the panel things start to look more interesting. It doens't take close look to see that this case offers a lot of space on the backside of the motherboard, which is a very good thing if you, like us, want your case to be wired neatly. When looking for the two 5.25 inch drive cages we find them in the top left corner and the drives are going to be place upright. Shifting focus to the edge on the right side makes you see the hard drive cage, which can carry up to four 2.5 inch drives. Right underneath the HDD cage, there is the spot where the PSU goes, which also stands on its side and the fan is facing towards the side panel. For the power supply there is an additional bracket to keep it in place, but to be honest we don't really get the point of this. Nevertheless this case can take power supplies which can be up to 200 millimeter long. In this case compatibility issues are foreign word when it comes to the case and PSU's. Another great addition are all the cable management holes, which ensures that you can route cables where you actually want/have to. Last but not least, there is a big hole where the CPU cooler goes, which lets you install a CPU cooler after you've put the motherboard in place.
