-- Blue Directron Dragon DA-01BLD Full Tower Case
-- Price: ~ $79.00 USD
-- 05.30.2002

Let's open up the front bezel and see what we have.  I noticed on my model, the front panel came apart pretty easily.  I think the plastic edge that comes out of the panel may have been knocked loose when it was shipped over.  Not really a big deal, I just won't pull it too hard next time.

The front comes off extremely easy, which makes working on your case a lot easier.  There are just two tabs on each side, marked with the 5 dots you can see above.  Press and hold it and pull toward you and the top panel comes loose.

To get the bottom piece off, just pull on the two tabs at the top.  Don't pull too hard, as the wires are still connected to the power/reset button.  You can see in this picture 3 additional intake holes.

The first thing we saw was the removable 3.5" bracket.  It is secured by just two thumbscrews.  This is actually the only place that there are thumbscrews, everywhere else is held together by locking clips or regular screws.

   Ever get a case where the 5.25" bays have this piece of metal that just won't come off?  The Blue Dragon comes with breakaway metal pieces that are just held together at one point.  Makes it a whole lot easier on the hands when trying to remove it.
