Cracking it Open
The interior of the
case truly shows the quality research that Antec put in to produce
the perfect case at an affordable price. The first part of the
case we inspected was the type of power supply it came with.
Just wanted to make sure we got our 300W supply in there.
The other great part of the case is the
removable 3.5" drive bays. No need to remove both sides
of the case to install or remove any parts, just remove the bay and
To release the bay, press down on the
that notch and the drive cage slides right out. Placing it
back into the case was a breeze, all the notches lined up correctly
each and every time we replaced it. No need to play around with it
To install screws for cdroms and other
5.25" drives, the other side of the case needs to be removed to
install the screws. The other side is a solid sheet of metal
except for 4 holes. Aligned for the 3.5" bays just in
case you needed to add something while the sides were off.
The motherboard tray already contained
copper stand offs for the installation of the motherboard. The
guys over at Antec know how annoying those copper standoffs can be :
On the bottom of the case near the
front is the optional 80mm fan slot. A nice spacious area to
include a fan to draw some cold fresh air from the outside. A
plastic cage is included to hold the fan in place.
