-- Getting Inside
-- Page: 1 2 3 4 5

   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!
