As we can see the front bezel of the case is a combination of steel and plastic. The steel mesh allows air to flow more freely through the case. There’s space for four 5.25″ devices in the front panel. Unfortunately all 3.5″ slots are internal, so you have to sacrifice one of the 5.25″ slots in order to use floppydrive with this case.

At the rear of the case you’ll find a 120mm fan in it. The design of the case allows the use of 7+1 (one separate slot) expansion cards. There’s also two water cooling outlets in the upper area of the case. The side of the case has slots for two 80-120mm fans which are not provided with the case.
