The front bezel easily pulls off, giving you access to the 5 1/4" drive bays as well as a look at the front 90mm blue LED intake fan which is rated at 16 dBA @ 1200 RPM.

One of the great things about this chassis is that nearly every component is modular. Shown in the photos above is the motherboard tray, power supply mounting bracket, hard drive cage and optical drive / SSD / 3.5" drive bracket.

Once all of these items are removed, you are essentially left with an empty shell of a chassis. It's worth noting that the side panels are not removable so if you need to access the interior, you have to come in from the top. This can be a little annoying, especially if you need to make a quick change. For example, I forgot to plug in a single cable during installation and ended up having to remove the top panel and the power supply to access it.

Let's continue on and put some hardware in the A30.
