Taking the first look at the B2 Stealth Bomber, it has a very unique look to it. The front of the case is not flat like most cases are, it bulges out a little toward the bottom and the side of the case. The side which houses the motherboard tray is very plain; the other side, however, is very alive. There is a fan intake on the side of the case and has a cover on it which has the design of a B2 Stealth Bomber. The front of the case has a door which covers the drive bays. There are two buttons on the front, one is the power button, and the other is a button to open the front door. On the back of the case there is a 120mm fan that will blow out the hot air from inside the case.
On the front of the case is where you will find all of the buttons you need to use the case. There is a power button as well as a little red button, which is the button that you press to activate the drive bay cover's motor. That's right, the drive bay cover has a motor on it that flips the cover from the closed position covering the drive bays to an open position that will expose them all. If for some reason you need to open the front cover without using the button, such as when the computer is off and you need to get to a drive you have under there, you are covered. There is a "Rescue" switch that you are able to toggle between automatic and manual which will shut the motor off when engaged in the manual setting.
On the left side of the front bezel is where In Win decided to hide the I/O panel. On the panel there are two eSATA ports, one Firewire port, two USB 2.0 ports, as well as a microphone and headphone port. They are all hidden under a little flap that you are able to open by hand.
On the side of the case, as I had mentioned before, there is an air duct that is in the shape of a real B2 Stealth Bomber that the USAF flies. This duct is exactly what you may think it is, there are fans behind it that are able to suck in fresh air from the outside. There are even little slits in the plastic so nothing important gets sucked in.
Now it's time to get inside the case. However, there are no screws that hold the case's beautiful side panels on, so how are you supposed to take them off? There are little tabs on the sides of the case that are made out of rubber that you can pull up on which will allow you to open the case. They act as the screws.
Now that we know how to get inside the case, let's take a look at what is inside of it!
