Inside

Side panels off and one can see the internal layout of the case. As internal expansion there's room for five hard drives (six if you count the hot-swap). All the drive bays are fitted with tool-free locks. Other than that it's again the usual deal with a mounting hole for installing the CPU-cooler

Behind the motherboard tray there's no real cable management holes, but behind the 3,5" drive cage there's enough room for the excess cables. On this side there are no quick locks for the 5,25" bays, but rather just pins that hold the drives in place.

 

HDDs

The hard drive sledges have pins that hold the drive in place also without using any screws. For added security I still recommend securing the drive with atleast one screw. Anyway for the hot-swap bay it's nice to be able to just slap a drive in the cage and slide it in place. The sledges also support 2,5" drives, but unfortunately don't have any noise dampening for 3,5" drives.

 

Fans

The supplied fans include a single 120 mm intake led fan, a single 170 mm led exhaust fan and also the rear panel 120 mm fan. Unfortunately only the 120 mm exhaust fan comes with a three-pin power connector, the other must be directly connected to the power supply. This means you can't use the motherboard fan controller and for us modular power users this also means you need to have atleast one molex-cable connected. That said, the fans are pleasingly quiet even at full speed, so for most the lacking option of controlling isn't going to be a huge problem.
