The first thing to take note of is the fact the case is black, as black as can be. When I first saw it, I couldn't stop thinking how much it reminded of a standard Dell server case. Aside from this, my initial impressions were how heavy yet sturdy the case was while not forgetting its nifty feet stands. Additionally, all the edges inside the case are rounded and very smooth, this comes in handy if you don't want small little cuts on your hands after building your system.
The case measures in at 12" by 13" and has four 4 x 5.25" drive bays and 6 x 3.5" drive bays, measuring in a little bit smaller than competing size PC70 case from Lian Li. It's important to note that two of those four 3.5" drive bays are hidden; this makes them only suitable for hard disk drives.
Both of the 3.5" drive bay racks can be removed by simply changing a lever's position which locks them into place so they don't move during transportation. The Lian Li range of cases (i.e. PC30 Mini Tower and PC65 USB) also have a similar option of the 3.5" drive bay racks being able to be removed, but unlike the 710B, screws are required to be messed around with due to their screw design. All the same, Enermax include a lot of screws required for overall installation of things like motherboards and expansion cards, no more than a quarter of what was supplied was used.
Equally as impressive, each drive bay rack includes a mount for one 80mm fan which, once placed in the mount, locks into place nice and securely. After experiencing hard disk drive failure due to a lack of cooling, I am pleased to see Enermax made some allowances here. The lever which locks the drive bay rack into place is also shown in this shot; life couldn't be made any easier.
As you can see from the shot above, it's just a matter of placing your hard disk drives into the drive bay rack and sliding it in and locking it in place. You can be assured it's such a tight and secure fit that you aren't going to have a fairly heavy drive bay bouncing around your case whilst on your way to a LAN, dread the thought.
