With the top panel removed we can get an idea of exactly how cramped this case is going to be. Due to the combination of 350W TFX power supply, half-height riser slots and small space with lack of airflow, you will need to carefully consider heat production and power consumption when selecting components. Blanks in the risers must be broken out prior to use, and only one filler plate is included to cover any unused slots. Screws for the motherboard and drives are provided as is a power cord, however there is nothing else. No manual, no cable ties and no other accessories typically bundled with cases. Compared to most other Moneual enclosures, the 600 is certainly very spartan.


The front panel is held on by plastic clips and can be removed for access to the drive bays. Although labeled as CD-ROM1 and CD-ROM2, only one of these bays has external access. The left side 5" bay is instead fitted with a tab and mounting holes for a standard 3" hard drive. In order to mount any drives in these locations the entire cage must be removed to access the screw holes. Let's take a crack at installing some hardware into the Y601.
