Closer Look:

Starting off with the inside, we have our fans which consist of a 120mm rear exhaust, two 80mm side exhaust, and a 140mm front intake. We also have all three types of tool-less solutions represented here. Between two of the tool-less solutions for the hard drives we have our box of hardware. Moving on to the rear of the case we of course have our 80mm fans but here is also a curious black box which is otherwise known as the SIM. The SIM is powered by a four pin molex connector and only needs to be connected to your motherboard via its F-USB connector. On the front, without the panel, you can see the fan filter for the 140mm fan as well as the LED board for Power and HDD indicator lights. Looking closer at the locking mechanisms for 5.25" devices, one simply slides in the device and then pushes in the button to lock it in. To release you slide the lever to the left.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

On the inside we get a closer look at the bottom of the circuit board for the top panel connections as well as a look at the inside of the 5.25" expansion bays. The case is also outfitted with a filter for the bottom 120mm fan which is the only optional fan in this case. The 140mm fan on the front panel also has a dust filter. Here we have the tool-less solutions for the 3.5" hard drive bays.

 

 

 

Further on we have a CD that was packaged with the case which comes with the SIM software as well as a manual for the SIM specifically. Besides that we also have our accessory box. Inside the box we find a manual, some round metal piece which I though was a magnet but it is not magnetic, four temperature probes, one fan power extension cable which supports a three or four pin connector, screws, dust cloth, and two clips for wire management. Moving on, we have pictured all three of our fans. Just looking at the 140mm fan doesn't reveal anything about it and the specifications don't mention anything about it beyond being a 140mm fan.

 

 

 

Sad to say the same is true for both the 120mm rear exhaust and the 80mm side intake fans but all of these are LED fans and are able to be turned on and off through the SIM software. Finally we move onto our internal connections which consist of eSATA, USB, IEEE 1394, power switch, HDD LED, and speaker. Also pictured at the very bottom is the USB connector for the SIM. Finally, onto the build. Amazingly nothing went wrong and everything fit in just fine. Wire management is a little to be desired as locations to go with wires are in short supply which led to a light amount of clutter. The tool-less solutions were easy to use and worked great.

 

 

 

Still yet, there is the software setup for the SIM and testing so keep reading.
