Exterior

The Quarterback has a mostly black painted finish, the surface of which is smooth and semi-glossy. A clear side window and face mask-esque silver front cover contrast the rest of the case nicely. The full-length grill opens as a normal front panel door would to reveal the five 5" and two 3" drive bays. Magnets built into the black portion of the front panel keep the grill held shut. Depending on which bays you use, you may not even need to open the grill as some are accessible through the large openings. The drive bay covers are slotted as is the lower portion of the front panel to allow for air to enter the case. Large power and reset buttons have lighted power and hard drive activity LED's surrounding them.



The side panel window is a bit on the small size, blocking a good bit of the lower portion of the case interior from view. The area in the vicinity of the video card is vented with numerous reverse-tapered holes and a 120mm LED intake fan is positioned higher up, directly over the CPU location. It draws air through holes identical to those found in the vent. The smaller end of these holes is on the outside of the window and the larger funnel end is on the inside. It's sort of an odd configuration that I don't recall ever seeing before. The fan location is pre drilled for mounting an 80mm fan if you so choose. The rear of the case also houses a 120mm fan, with an open honeycomb style grid layout and holes for an 80 or 92mm fan as well. The area above the riser slots is also vented with much smaller holes. The back side of the Quarterback is relatively plain except for the USB and audio ports found on the lower front corner.
