Front Bezel

As mentioned earlier, the front bezel is removable and takes little effort to accomplish.

With the front bezel removed, we get a nice look at the interior and 120mm fan grill.

The fan filter is removable so it can be cleaned and reused. Notice below the fan filter, the silver bar -- this is the key to the tool-less bezel. Simply pull down on this bar and the bezel is released. I like this much better than the traditional plastic snap-pieces that are prone to breaking.

One thing I noticed while working with this case is the use of screws instead of rivets to hold the chassis together. This is the first case I have seen that has taken this approach and I think it is a wonderful thing. Why? Because it makes modding this case a breeze. For example, say you want to watercool your system. You can easily remove the hard drive racks in the lower front portion of the case and mount a 120mm radiator there instead. This can all be done with a screwdriver as opposed to using a dremel or drill to remove rivets.

Here we have the bezel sitting off to the side...

and a shot from the rear that shows off the wiring for the front bay ports, power/reset button and LEDs.

Continue ahead as we move around to the side of the Adamas...
