The Build - Continued

Installing the hard drives couldn't be any easier. The black plastic top opens up and you just slide the drive into the tray, then lay the top over and snap it locked. It securely holds the drive, and if there is a bit of play, the anti-vibration washers on the screws isolate any small vibrations.

Spinning the tray to the side, you can see the slight bend in the side part of the plastic. This allows the top to lock into the slide in tray. Notice they are designed to only allow the drives to be installed one way, and that is with the wiring pointing to the opposing side panel.

T PC-B70 is all ready to go at this point aside, from the obvious missing PSU.

A quick look at the wire management of the PC-B70 from behind the scenes shows there is ample room to pass the wiring from the front to where they need to be connected. With all the openness of the chassis, you are left hiding excess behind the drive bays, as there aren't many other choices for where to stash them.

Once the PSU was installed, it takes some "creative" routing to keep things hidden. Even trying to keep things clean, I was left with a "nest-like" wiring bundle behind the drives.

Going back to the view that really matters, to see if the time and effort of tidying things was worth it! I am pleased with the overall look that I ended up with, considering the power supply I chose isn't modular, or even friendly toward wire management.
