The rest of the plastic slots are
pre-painted also in case you need to install more bay buses or other
components. A 3.5" floppey is included which is also
color coordinated with the rest of the case. To the right of
the floppy drive, you may notice a faint rectangle, that's the power
button. I did the same test that I did with the reset
button. Poked it a few times to see if any paint got a little
too far in. None was really visible past the outside of the
button, but it did get stuck a few times. I don't think the
paint is the culprit, but more likely the button itself. I did
the same test on an un-painted Inwin Q500 and it did the same thing.
Here is a shot of the top blowhole,
powered by a 120mm 68.9CFM Whisper Panaflo fan. The grill is
also black to compliment the red marble look.
On the window side of things, we have a
case window already decked out with black side molding. The
molding itself measures about an inch in width and covers all around
the window. Within in the window are two 120mm Panaflos and a
chrome handle. Notice the tight black grills once again, sweet
The case is put together by a few brass
thumbscrews. Great for that extra touch of tool less entry into
the case itself.
On the back of the case, the top 120mm
exhaust is cut out to allow maximum air flow out of the case.
Again, that smooth black grill makes another appearance. The
120mm here is also the quiet Panaflo for maximum noise control.
There is another exhaust located to the
right of the I/O panels on the back. This one is fitted with an
80mm Panaflo that pushes air out located right above the video
card. Strange why this exhaust area was not cut out also.
