Inside The NZXT Beta Mid Tower Case - Continued

Looking in from the rear of the Beta, you get another look at the optical drive bays. The covers have a little clip on both ends that need to be released by pressing from the inside. Then you just slide a drive in and install the clips which I will show in a bit.

NZXT uses a good amount of wire to include in the Beta Chassis. Both from the I/O wiring and the included 3-pin or 4-pin Molex powered fan plug, there is plenty of length to get the job done.

Getting a bit closer, you can see all the usual suspects are in line here as well. Both of the AC' 97 and HD audio and eSATA connections are present, followed by the power, hard drive LED, LED power and reset connections to go to the motherboard.

I removed the front panel, as it is only held in with six pressure clips. This not only gives you a good idea of how it's made, but you can also see how the bay covers are tabbed at the ends.

With the front panel out of the way I can show you a couple of things. You can see the floppy drive bay, but if you compare to the previous image there is no hole for the disc to pass through. The second thing that I want to showcase is the only fan included in the Beta. This is a seven bladed, blue LED, 120mm fan that is mounted to the outside of the front and is the only source of airflow to the chassis as it is shipped from NZXT.

Removing the right panel allows for a good view of the wire management side of the Beta chassis. There is a bit of a set back to the bay drives which will allow for a bit of wiring, as well as the motherboard tray being set back to allow some thinner wires to not affect the closure of the panel.
