The Build and Finished Product
Everything pretty much falls into place when building inside the PC-K62. With a full ATX motherboard, there is still plenty of room to work inside this chassis. I was able to install my 9800GTX with room to spare, which means it will accept most of the larger graphics cards.
I did set the PSU in with the fan down to try out the locking bar, which is easy to use and does a nice job locking down the PSU. I had to flip it though for the build as this PSU has shorter wires and having them come out of the PSU closer to the motherboard makes it possible to use, versus missing them by mere inches.
Lastly, I want to note that this PSU has a ton of extra leads and not being modular can sometimes lead to issues. I found plenty of room to stash the extra leads inside the chassis. Even though they can be seen, it allows for a much cleaner overall look.
Other than the fact that my PSU isn't black, even the rear of the chassis looks good and is easy to access. Nothing out of the ordinary to note here!
Just before I closed up shop and powered this PC-K62 up for the pretty images about to come, I figured I'd show what I meant about hiding excessive wiring. What could have looked like a rats nest laying on the floor of this chassis, is easily bundled and slid under and into unused drive bay space. It may look a bit messy from here, but put the panel back on and no one is the wiser.
Virtually an unimpeded view of the components is what I mentioned earlier. With all the pieces in place and the windowed panel back on, you can see you get just that. Personally I like that this window isn't square, but I'm not a fan of this "dog bone" design. But hey, at least it has a window!
With the lights dimmed down and the power switch pushed, you can see not only the blue glow of the intake fans LED's, but there is even a flood from the top fans that comes through above the optical drive.
Spinning the PC-K62 around so I could look into the louvers, there I found the glow of the dual 140mm top exhaust fans. The rear exhaust fan, as you can see, has no LED's, but the fan up installation of my PSU adds more of the same blue flood of light.
See what I mean? Turning the chassis around one more time shows that flood I was talking about. Quite a soothing look with all the components in place! It's even enough blue LED to hide the ugliness of the red Foxconn motherboard.
