Installation of a system into this product was pretty straightforward. The removable motherboard tray made it a snap to get this mATX board in place. If only all of the HTPC cases were this easy. Even with the larger of the supported boards installed, there is no lack of space. The taller design of the b-Envi makes it easy to give all of your components enough room to be happy.
This little contraption is an adapter for your 24-pin power supply connector. No, it isn't a way to make this a proprietary device, it simply adds a special connector that needs to be attached to the appropriate cable that comes from the front of the case. It allows a small amount of power to flow even when the system is off.
What is it for? Oh, I guess I forgot to mention another one of those "innovative" features, didn't I?
This photo was taken when the system was off. The manufacturer's logo is lit by a hidden display panel that sits behind the translucent plastic covering. The red circle above that logo is your power button. Simply press it and the system powers up normally. Once the system is active, there are lit icons to allow for powering the system down again, resetting the system, locking the buttons and an icon that shows hard drive activity. All of these are blue except for the HDD activity, which burns red.
This does not work like a LCD touch screen, but more like a soft touch button that sits behind a thin layer of plastic. You will be able to feel the depression of the button so you should not have any problems knowing whether or not you have activated the button you are trying to push.
Overall, a little feature that adds to the "Cool Factor" of this box.
