In this section, we will look at the ouside of the case. Looking at the side, you'll notice two spaces for fans. Here you can optionally equip two 120mm fans, although it looks as though you could go smaller or even manage to rig up some 140mm fans, with some modification of course. The top of the case also features more fan space, which can take two 120mm fans or two 140mm fans. The front of the case has some of your typical front panel connections: two USB ports, headphone and microphone connections, and eSATA. Also here are a power light bar and, below the power and reset switches, the HDD activity indicator. The front of the case also has capability for a single 120mm fan and even features a fan filter. However, looking at the sides of the case in the first and last pictures, you'll notice gaps in the front panel between the panel and actual front of the case. With gaps like these, I would not expect much dust to get caught in the fan filter. It would seem to be a waste to have a filter there - if it really isn't going to do anything.
Moving on to the rear of the case, we have our only 120mm fan on the case. Yes, that is right, this case only comes with one fan. It is expandable up to six, which is great, but it would be nice to at least have been given one other fan. Right above the fan on the rear of the Gamma are two grommets so that should you choose to water cool your system you can add the radiator outside the Gamma. Something that almost has become standard on gaming and enthusiast cases. We also have our bottom mounting PSU area here just like many other cases. Finally, we move onto the bottom of the case, which has a removable fan filter for your PSU and small rubberized feet to keep your case well grounded.
So, we just got a glimpse of the outside of the case, but what is on the inside? Let's find out.
