Once out of the bag, we are faced with the side panel. Can't say I've seen quick release catches on any case I've come across before. This makes the panels both convenient and easy to remove - involving little to no effort. The right side panel also has a locking mechanism so you can protect your internal components where ever you may have your computer. The front of the case doesn't show much but features a nice mesh design. The panel in front of the fan is capable of being pushed in so it pops out allowing you to remove it for easy access to the fan filter. Once clean, you simply let the bottom of the panel rest in its grooves and then push the panel back into place until it clicks. After having already seen the right side of the case there isn't much more to reveal about the left other than the fact that it appears that the side panels are interchangeable. Moving on to the rear, we see this is another case that follows the growing trend of bottom mounted power supplies. Here you can also see the provided holes lined with grommets for water cooling tubes. Another item of note is that instead of having the usual total of seven rear expansion slots, there are actually eight of them. With eight expansion slots and the right motherboard, you should find no problem accommodating a three-way Crossfire or SLI setup even with dual-width cards.
Much like the front panel with the fan filter, the top panel also pushes inward and pops out in order to be removed. This provides access to the keyhole for the side panel and any fans you may have installed up top. Finally, on the bottom we have our feet which consist of two plastic bars on either side of the case and four rubber rectangles to keep the case from wobbling. Also seen here in the picture, is the bottom fan filter for the PSU which easily slides in and out for cleaning.
Wow! So this case really does pack some features found only in full-tower cases. With a total of eight expansion slots you can install any video card setup conceivable. In your average mid-tower case you wouldn't typically find this number of slots so it's nice to see such a useful included feature that isn't found anywhere else. What else lies ahead though? Let's find out!
