Moving along, we come to the back of the case.

Nothing to unusual here, other than the weird offset of the fans.

Inside the case, you have the usual assortment of screws and so forth.  One rather strange thing was the plastic feet did not come installed from the factory.  You have to add them yourself.  I wasn't very impressed with them at any rate.  They are made of plastic rather than rubber so the do not stop movement of the case on flat surfaces and they are constantly falling out.  Another complaint I have is the lack of enough screws.  I ran out of stand offs, standard case screws, and fine threaded screws on a standard installation and had to resort to using ones I had lying around.

Here are they typical mess of wires for the front panel.  Here again I had some complaints.  For one, the front audio jacks do not use the onboard headers, but rather go out the back of the case and plug in the sound card.  This totally and completely negates the very purpose of front audio jacks.  Not to mention it's a mess to have those wires sticking out the back.  The USB headers are also screwy.  While they have standard onboard jacks, they also have all of the wires branching off individually.  It all makes for a big wiring mess inside.

The tabs that hold drives in place are effective at doing so, but for a case that makes a point of showing off the interior, they are rather ugly.  At the very least they should be black, or some other color than beige.
