|-- The Inside
-- Page: 1
Fans, fans, fans. 2 in the back, 1 in the front and
2 on the side. I didn't do a quantitative cooling comparison on this
bad boy but I am sure it carries it weight. The VR panel in front
controls them all on three channels. Plugging the fans in is a piece
of cake. If you want to isolate or filter the air flow I don't think
this case is suitable because the air comes in from too many places.
The inside of all the panels are finished flat black, good attention
to detail. All
the screws in this case and mobo tray are backed by steel
threaded studs. Even though this is a thick 2mm and has plenty of
room for threads, I applaud Enermax for this quality touch. One mistake they made
however is that there is no clearance allowed for the expansion
cards when the mobo tray is pulled out. It doesn't block them,
it is just that the hole they have to come out through is exactly
the same size. This causes the cards to scrape on the way out. So on one hand it is
built to exacting tolerance but on the other, if you spec the hole
at the same size as the cards then this is what you get.
The specs say that it has 100% folded
edges. This must be a cut
and paste from the specs of their steel boxes.
They are not rolled nor buffed or rounded.
The 2mm thick material they use certainly is thick enough you
donít have finger cutting problem though.
The top panel comes off easily enough; unlike some other high end cases
I have seen. It exposes
lots of room and space to work. I tucked all the extra power cords up here.
A few minor distractions
but overall it is a beautiful box. The finish is outstanding and it
doesn't leave you with a lot of modding to do upfront. I still have some
cable management issues, a black Digital Doc and some neon to add. It's
pretty much a plug and play pre-modified case. I really enjoy
working with this unit every time I touch it. By the way, I used Endust for Electronics, works great on both the car
finish and the Plexiglas.
