Inside the case, we have a brand new 10" neon tube.  Made specifically for a car, but easily modified to work in a computer.  Read our Neon Guide to quickly alter most car neons to work in your box.

This 10" tube fits nicely on the bottom of the case.  Usually, these neons are screwed into cars. If you don't plan on doing that inside your case, using velcro is an alternative.



Here are the two 120mm Panaflos that rest on the inside of the case.  They are fastened to the plexi by a nut and bolt combination.  One thing I wished CDI included was rubber grommets on each of these fans.  Although not much vibration is created by these quiet fans, any little bit helps.  The nut and bolt combo works well in securing them tightly to the plexi.

Using these fans in conjunction with a fan/bay bus requires most people to have their fans un- tail.  Meaning no power connectors on the end of each 12v/Ground wire.  CDI decided wiring these small wires into the baybus may prove to be too much work if we decided to throw in some new fans.  So instead, they strapped on a few of these female/male connectors that can be joined and separated by hand to power up the fans through the bay bus.  The connectors are labeled red (R) and black (B) to differentiate between 12V and ground.  Noticed that the regular red and black wires are extended with slightly higher gauged wires.  Possibly to allow more power through it, or maybe it was the only wire they had around : )

The top and rear 120mm exhaust are situated very closely.  I'm not sure if this will cause any issues with awkward air movement, but for those drives near the top 5.25" bays, they will never be in the hot zone for sure!

The 4 120mm Panaflos are controlled through the PCMods.com bay bus unit which is pictured above.  The Evercool bay cooler sits below the bay bus, able to cool any hard drive you stick in there.  This is one of the main reasons why the clip feature was utilized on the fan tails.  To get access to that baybus, you need to remove that face plate that it sits in and unscrew each bare wire.  With the clips, it is a whole lot easier.  Nice touch CDI!

The wires from the bay bus are wired through the holes to reach the bottom of the case without much fuss and mess.  You can move them around if you need to.
