-- C3 CT1310 Clear Acrylic Case
-- Price: $259.95 USD
-- 08.18.2002
-- By: GideonX
-- Page: 1 2 3 4 5

The  front bezel comes attached with the drive cages, they aren't separable.  The picture on the right shows the empty case after front bezel removal.  This makes it a lot easier to get things installed without being cramped.

The top of the case comes with a pre-cut blowhole.  It's 80mm in size with fan screw holes already drilled for you.

The side panel is also held together by thumbscrews.  There is one on each corner which is screwed into a triangular acrylic piece glued to the inside of the case.  There are no side intake holes, which was strange.  I don't believe there is custom ordering either, maybe in a future update.

Here are a few shots of the inside, complete with removable motherboard tray.  That's right, it's a removable piece of acrylic for easy motherboard installation.  There are two screws on the top of the tray that holds it together.  The bottom is held with one piece of acrylic situated near the middle.

The rear of the case gives you the basics, the PSU hole, rear 92mm exhaust hole, the expansion ports and I/O area.  This model does come with a I/O panel, but the very basic model does not.

Your AGP/PCI cards are not screwed in individually, but with the help of a panel on the outside.   This panel is also held together with thumbscrews for easier access as shown in the second picture above.
