First Look Inside the case



Inside of the case was a baggy containing every imaginable screw and standoffs that would be needed. The first thing I noticed about the case was the locations for additional fans. The previous Thermaltake case I had contained fans in every slot possible, but the A60 saves the end user a bit money and only includes a couple of fans. The large mainboard CPU cutout looks like it should work well with most backplates. Looking around the case we see the HDD bays that are turned 90 degrees. This is a newer feature that I have been seeing in a lot of cases recently and for the better. This typically makes working with drives a lot easier. Looking at the drive tray system, it is fairly simple, but effective. Simply pinch the two handles together and slide the tray out.

The 5.25 bays are all tool-less design. It was a little interesting to figure out, but once I pinched the two sections together, it opened with ease. Taking a quick look at the back of the motherboard tray, we can see how the USB 3.0 cord is passed through the case to the holes in the back. Not pretty, but effective. The last feature is the SATA data and power connectors that are hidden behind the top tray. When using the SideClick EasySwap, the drive must be in the top bay passing through the door from the outside. Don't try to install first (I will get to this during the installation part).
