Sadly, there isn't a side panel window with this case or even an option for side ventilation. As previously stated, this case is completely aluminum, no plastic, and the result is a very nice polished black aluminum exterior. As you can see from the front, the case has the ability to support any 3.5" external devices, as well as up to four 5.25" devices. The right side panel isn't much different from the left this time around. But beware, the side panels are not reversible so you cannot turn the left one upside down and put it on the right instead. The top panel doesn't disappoint either sporting two 140mm red LED fans.
The bottom of the case has a hole for your PSU fan and is capable of using an included fan filter should you choose to mount your PSU fan side down. The feet on this case are really nice, consisting of large round circles clad with rubber on the bottom, so you can be sure this case won't be slipping away. Here we also have the top panel power and reset switches, as well as the I/O connections that consist of two USB ports, headset, MIC, and eSATA. Both USB ports are also USB 3.0 capable, should your motherboard offer support.
So far this case is shaping up to be something awesome just with this one look at the outside, but isn't it really what's on the inside that counts?
