And what have we here, all black interior and fully screwless drive bays?! Thermaltake, you are impressing me for a case that retails at $99.99!
The motherboard tray side of the case looks pretty plain; next to the 3.5" bays it has plenty of room for cables, which is needed badly as I will be using the Corsair TX750 which has way more cables than I use. Also notice there are no screwless drive bays on this side -- function or form? I like it. Using no screws leaves me too concerned about how well hard drives will be fastened, so I'm a big fan of looking clean to the side you would actually open, but secretly having the drives screwed in tightly.
Has a 120mm fan ever looked so small? Here you get a better idea of the amount of room between the HDD mounts and the right side panel -- got a couple inches waiting for cables to hang out. Even with the space between the fan and the front panel, Thermaltake includes a dust filter which snaps on and off.
For the nitpicky, I actually noticed the overspray (and lack of paint coverage) as soon as I opened the left side panel. Luckily, it's only an isolated section of the 5.25" drive bays.
Here are the lonely power supply mounts. The adjustable mount needs to be moved back for any decent sized PSU as it ships on the closest screw holes.
