Overall Score 4.2  

The 3.5″ drive bay is hidden away next to the PSU, under the shroud. Supporting three 3.5″ drives, it is removable, but it does help to support the chassis by helping with rigidity. The PSU section is long enough for most PSUs, but it’s going to be tight for some longer, non-modular PSUs. We’re going to be using the excellent EVGA 850W SuperNOVA G2 Modular PSU in this build.

With the front panel and magnetic dust filter removed, you can see the further watercooling support, with 240/280mm radiator in the front, we also reckon you could get a slim 360mm between the front panel and the chassis itself.

There is good provision for airflow around this chassis, including some air holes next to the PSU, giving the back panel added ventilation.

With the chassis contrasted against a white background, you can see the various access and airflow holes. As stated, the shroud completely encloses the PSU and drive section, other than the airflow and cable hole at the front. The top I/O panel cabling enters the component section from the rear, and is aided, as with other cabling, by a stepped access panel, allowing for better potential cable management, without pinching any cables in the process.
