If you read through our stock review of the case, you'll see all the added benefits of using this case.  I might have to say this may be the best mid tower aluminum case in its stock form to this date.  It has a slide out motherboard tray, detachable cages and numerous other added features.  Lets take a look inside the unit:

We get the complimentary 3 prong power cord, a box of screws and accessories and a nice aluminum hard drive cooler.  Extra free stuff is always nice.

Here's the inside of the side panel.  Wahoo Computers also decide to put another fan grill here to protect your precious fingers.  The top fan is an 80mm while the bottom is a 92mm Panaflo.  The 80mm is blowing air out while the one of the bottom is blowing inwards.  Perfect orientation due to the fact that the 80mm is right where your CPU should be.  Now this works out only if your CPU fan is blow air away and out from your heatsink.  If it's the other way around, you're going to be creating a small pocket of air that never goes anywhere.

Another option that was included in this case is the addition of a CCFL (cold cathode).  These are a lot brighter and smaller than your normal run of the mill neon tubes.  The CCFL is encased in an arcylic tube to protect it.

Also take notice in the above picture where the wires are all connected using 3pin connectors.  This makes it a lot easier to remove or change fans from the bay bus when needed.  Usually you would have to rip open the bay bus from the cover to get to the pins that are holding down the 12v/Ground wires, this makes it that much easier.

The invertor for the CCFL is velcro'd to the side of the case.  The side panel can still go on and off without a problem with it there.

Right behind removable drive cages that sit on the bottom of the case, are two stock Adda fans.  Usually these fans are attached to a mini Lian Li fan bus located right above it.  But for this modification, they rewired it so it can be controlled from the bay bus.  Would have been nice to change these to Panaflo units, but that's ok.
