The hard disk and optical drive cage is relatively big unit. In the middle there are four slots for 3.5" drives and in the both ends there are two 5.25" slots on each side. HDD mounting has some noise dampening material, which is supposed to prevent any resonance HDDs may cause.

Due to case's size limitations we had to use Noctua NH-L12 as a CPU-cooler instead of Nochua NH-D14, which we normally use.

All in all, the installation was pretty easy, though the cable management required a bit of an effort, because you can't route the cables under the motherboard tray. It's still possible to make the setup look neat and clean, if you don't rush the installation.

Unfortunately you need a screwdriver to remove anything in the case, so there is no thumb screws or tool-less mechanisms. Also Silverstone decided not to deliver any molex-3-pin adapters, which can be a problem if there's not enough 3-pin connectors on your motherboard.
