Inside the NZXT Zero 2 - Continued
Here we have the opposing ends of the front panel connections. From the left is the USB connection then to the AC97 and HD audio connectors. Down to the reset, power, HDD activity, and LED power connections. That leaves the SATA wire and an additional molex power connector.
Opening the front door and removing all the panel covers reveals that the front of the case does in fact have to be removed to get to the bay's metal covers.
Removing the front of the case is relatively easy. It has pressure released clips, three on each side, that hold the front to the case. The two silvery round things to the top right side are magnets to keep the front door securely shut.
Flipping the front over and looking at the bottom, you can see NZXT changed the old plastic bottom vent for a steel mesh version in the Zero 2. This is where the HDD fan gets its intake of fresh cool air. Surrounding this mesh at the top is a LED lit "chevron" that is powered by the molex connector.
Flipping around to see the front of the case without the cover shows the fan I was discussing and the added dustcover. Just above the fan on the right are two holes that are made to get the wiring from the front to the motherboard.
Here we get a good look at the door and the grill that covers the holes for four 120mm fans. The edges are plastic and contain the same mesh found in the front of the Zero 2.
The inside of the door gives you a much better idea of how all this mounting gets done. Just remove the grill screws that you can see here and install the fans as usual. When they are all installed and ready to go, re-attach the grill and you are ready to wire them up.
