The top panel also has a slight step in it, so you will get a bit more height if required.
We used some of our current test components, including a Zotac Amp GTX980 Ti and the Gigabyte Z170 G1 Sniper. We deliberately do not spend too much time cabling and we only used a couple of ties to hold down a couple of cables at the back. We didn’t include an optical drive as we don’t really use them any more.

We will generally cable it so we can get the chassis doors on which was very easy with the Anidees AI8. On with the test build shots;
Front to back, the Anidees AI8 chassis is an excellent build, we didn’t use any cable ties, just a couple of ties we had from spare packaging. The placement of the access holes is good and the bottom access gaps work perfectly for all required cabling front and back. On the back of the chassis, everything fell in to place, this really was an easy cabling exercise. It’s a little untidy, but this is five minutes work of cabling effort.
