Here we get a nice look at the Beta's interior. The black finish really gives the case a solid and professional feel. While the expansion slots have no tool-less capability, the 5.25, 3.5, and hard-drive racks all use plastic tool-less mounting systems, included in the accessory box. A nice feature of this motherboard tray is that the stand-off screw holes are marked in the tray itself, so there's no need for a paper guide or guessing and checking.

In the front, we get a look at the blue LED fan (though it is not translucent, it is indeed an LED fan) and the drive bays. The fan comes with both pass-through Molex and three-pin power connections. Due to its inset design, the front fan can be replaced with a thicker fan for better performance. There are four 5.25 external drive bays. While the 3.5 bay is exposed, it is not external.

On the back side of the motherboard tray, we find that it should be quite easy to manage cables in the Beta. With open space behind the hard-drive cage and plenty of holes in the motherboard tray, there should be enough cable routing options for everyone.

Here we can get a better look at the insides of the back and front panels. While this is a budget case, and therefore is lacking in the bells and whistles department, it does seem to have a very tidy and efficient layout. Keep reading as we throw some hardware into the Beta.
