Internal layout is again the usual one with PSU at the bottom. At the bottom of the drive cage there are four plastic sledges for installing the hard drives and these also come with vibration dampening rubber grommets. All the other drive bays also come with tool-free quick locks, so installation should be a breeze.

Looking from the behind there are no locks for the drives on this side, just metal tabs holding the drives in place. On the motherboard tray there's a cut-out for installing the cooler and another one at the bottom, but unfortunately there's so little space between the tray and the side panel that running cables through here is nearly impossible.

Installing a system to the PS05 was indeed an easy process, but the lack of cable management led to a huge cable mess around the HDD-bays. The HDD-sledges worked just fine, but the plastic holder for the expansion cards felt rather iffy with a long and heavy card like the HD 5870. Personally I'd just rather use screws for sturdier result. Also note how with long PSUs the bottom mount for a 120 mm fan can't be used.

Not much to see on this side, but as you can see the CPU-cut out could be a bit larger for easier CPU-cooler installation.
