To gain access to the inside you have to first remove the four screws that hold the top on.
With the top off we can see the hard drive and optical drive tray. This is held in place with two small wood screws.
With the tray removed we can get a better look at the back of the front panels. The front I/O wiring is more than long enough to reach in this case, and it may even be a touch too long for the tight quarters. The motherboard tray has some standoffs pre-installed.
Here we can see why the front air vent screens are not removable. They are stapled in place.
Looking closer at the front I/O ports you may notice that the area behind the LCD screen is a little empty. That’s because the case doesn’t come with one. nMedia has one, # PRO-LCD, but it is another $30 on top of the $99 price tag of the case itself.
The drive tray has space for four 3.5” hard drives and one 5.25” optical drive.
