The case does not use a slide out motherboard tray. If you use a large full sized ATX motherboard, you will have to really wiggle your way in. The power supply area is a bit cramped too if you have a larger watt PSU with a lot of wires.
The 3.5" drive cage is removeable which provides easy access to install your floppy and hard drives.
Here are the cables that allow you to re-route your ports:
There are a total of four (4) spots to install your fans, two on the window, one in the rear under the PSU and one in the front towards the bottom.
We decided to throw our test rig into the mix to see how things worked. Previously, the rig had a home in a clear acrylic case.
The rig consisted of an Epox 8K7D with an AMD XP 2000+ with a ThermalTake SS Volcano9 and 512MB Buffalotech module. The room held a constant 27C. The case and CPU temperatures rose a bit, from 38C and 47.4C to 40.7C and 52C respectively from the readings on the Compunurse temperature probe. The case had a warm feel to it, but not too hot. The CPU ran at full load with Prime95 running in the background while messing around with Photoshop and a few other applications.
Overall, the case is decently priced for the ease of use and pleasing design. I liked the lightweight aluminum construction and nice red finish. However, it does not come with a power supply nor any fans. These additional items can bring the total cost to about $100USD. There's also the possibility you may have ram slot issues when using a full sized ATX motherboard. The last slot may rub up against your optical drive on the bottom of the 5.25" cage.
