On the top of the case is a panel that when pushed on, releases to be lifted up. Underneath is access to the I/O ports for USB 2.0, eSATA, mic, and headphones.
The left side of the case has a window in it. A lot of enthusiasts like these to show the hardware that they have inside. Like most, there is a place to add a fan in the door, which is positioned so it will blow air onto the CPU and video card area. To open the door you will first have to unlock it if it is locked. The lock is in the upper latch. Once unlocked, pull back on both latches and swing the door out. After it is swung out, it can be removed completely as it just interlocks with the side panel of the case. Notice the Thermaltake Logo and slogan embossed into the window near the bottom.
The right side of the case is absolutely plain with the exception of the lock and cutouts for your fingers to pull on the door and bezel.
The back of the case has the cutout/mounting holes for your PSU, the perforated holes to let exhausting air escape from the 120mm fan, your I/O connection plate, and the cover plates that you will remove when you install a PCI-Express or PCI card.
On the bottom of the case are four feet, something that almost every case has by now. These feet are movable to allow you to spread them out for a wider stance, which gives it more stability. You can choose from one of three positions. This can be beneficial when placed on a thick carpeted floor.
