Each of the doors can be opened independent of one another. Each also have a removable filter that can be cleaned. To gain access to the filter is easy. Just open the bay cover and pull one the tab for the screen. The screens fit snug to the door so they don’t rattle.
With all the doors open you have full access to the hole hard drive cage.
The Fleet Release doors can be locked so the doors can’t be opened when you don’t want them to. There is a locking bar that can only be accessed from the inside of the case.
The right side of the DF-85 is pretty plain, there is only the Antec logo in the lower rear corner.
The logo is stamped in the side panel.
Moving around top rear of the case we can see the rear 120mm fans and the in the top left corner is the speed control selector switches for the rear and top fans.
Just below are the expansion slots and water cooling pass through ports. There are only seven slots so this may be an issue for some running multiple video cards. All the expansion slot covers are vented except for one. The seventh slot is for passing the USB3.0 cable around to the back. This seems a little out of place being chrome plated, it also occupies a slot. I would have liked it to be black so it didn’t stick out. An even better option would have been a third pass through port like for the water cooling tubes.
At the bottom is the power supply mounting area. The DF-85 can use either a standard ATX PSU or the CPX format power supplies.
