|-- Getting Inside
-- Page: 1
Now the main portion of the inside space is taken up
by the removable drive bays. They are smack dab in the middle,
kind of gets in the way sometimes.
Here is the back side of the HDD bays,
its a PCB with the IDE and power connectors on them. There is
also wires that extend to the front of the case for the LEDs and the
Electronic Key Lock feature. The IDE connectors here and
inside the removable bays DO support ata/100!
The side 5.25" bay is not removable
since its already out in the open. The 3.5" are removable by
taking off three (3) thumb screws.
To get to these screws and anything on the front bezel,
you need to pop the front cover off first. Just stick your hand
under the bezel and pull gently, the cover should pop off rather easily.
The bottom front of the case contains a
Sunon 80mm case fan to bring in some cool air. The air filter is
now made of aluminum also, with a thick piece of wired filter
inside. The fan used in our sample was Sunon's KD1208PTB2
fan. Which is a ball bearing based fan rated at 2900rpms with air
flow at 39CFMs. The noise level is at 32dBA, which is not too
high. One thing missing from this case is the mini fan adjustment
switches on the front. They had them on the other models to help control the
speed of the fan. Guess you'll have to rig your own fan bus here!
