Starting with the left side panel, we seem to have a 220mm LED fan. However, what is more interesting are the grommets surrounding the mesh on the panel, as these allow for 120mm fans to be secured to the panel and allow up to six to be installed. Moving on to the front of the case the first thing I notice is how many bays are in the case, which is a total of five. Not much else to see on the front, as our Front I/O is located on the top panel of the case.
More eventful however is the right side panel which also bears a fan. The fan is also an LED fan like its 220mm counterpart. As you can see on the back however, those are the extent of the LED fans that come equipped in the case. Since this of course is a full-tower case, we have the ability to have more expansion slots and here we have eight. This means if you have a tri-sli or tri-fire setup you can fit dual slot cards in every PCI-E slot on your motherboard. As seen with some Gigabyte boards, unless you have eight rear expansion slots you won't be able to use the lower-most PCI-E 16x slot. Like most cases seen on the market as of late, this one features a bottom-mounted PSU design.
Here we have a close up shot of the water cooling capabilities of the case. Here we have four grommets installed in the holes allowing you to run tubing in and out of the case. Next up is the top panel of the case. Here on this panel we have our final fan to introduce which is another 120mm fan. This makes for a total of five included fans one of which is 220mm and the rest are 120mm. Lastly we have the bottom of the case which has a vent if you wish to mount your PSU fan-side down. Also here are the feet which can be rotated around to where ever you need them.
So far this case is pretty impressive, but trust me - it gets better yet.
