One of the immediate features I noticed that caught my eye, is the construction of each blowhole.  All the intake and exhaust fan blowholes have been covered with molding.  Also, the four (4) screws that hold the fans into place are installed with grommets.

This eliminates vibration from the fan which can cause more noise in the case.  They throw in shiny chrome fan grills to boot:

The second shot is the rear exhaust 80mm fan.  Xoxide decided to use two Top Motor 120mm fans for the side intake, an 80mm for the rear exhaust and finally an 80mm front intake.  The folks at Xoxide are also the second company to not include a top blowhole.  Our previous review of the Hellstorm 2000 case from 3DCool also didn't have one.  From what I gather, top blowholes do nothing but disturb the airflow through the case.  Interesting concept.

 

To open the case, all you need to do is remove one screw on the top back plate.  The two sides will then lift upwards to open.  You can use the two handles already created on the side panel as shown in the picture above.  I think Xoxide may have gone with this case due to the fact that you only need to use one (1) screw to open the case.  They even included a thumbscrew, nice touch.

We also received the complimentary bag of screws and spec sheet.  The case does come with another spec sheet with all the specs according to Chris at Xoxide.
