First Look

As is customary with most of my other case reviews, I will start at the front of the case and work my way around then take a look at the interior.

The front bezel is crafted from plastic with brushed aluminum accents.

The lower portion of the bezel has vents to improve airflow to the intake fan. The right corner side of the bezel houses the front media ports (two USB, headphone, mic and FireWire).

The upper section of the front bezel carries over the design from the lower area. Here we have a single button (power), with the HDD LED directly below it. The power LED is blue and is located in the lower section of the upside-down triangle shaped black section near the top (if that made any sense lol). This area is actually somewhat translucent, allowing you to use a 5 1/4" device in the top bay and still be able to see the readout (fan controller, LCD screen, etc.).

The upper section operates as a door, allowing access to five external 5 1/4" bays and two 3 1/2" bays. The reset button is also located here.

More ahead...
