The Build and Finished Product
Based on the fact I needed a good amount of power to run the components I chose for the build, I chose a PSU I had on hand that would cover my needs. Once I went to install it I ran into my first snag. My PSU of choice was a bit too large, and my PSU is by no means "large". Nothing to worry about, though, I will just remove the fans to allow a good fit for my PSU.
Installing a drive is quite simple. Just turn the purple center to the vertical position and pull out the clip, slide the drive in and replace the clip. Rotating the purple handle to the horizontal position locks the pins into the drive, and the clip into the side of the rack. The same procedure is taken to place the hard drive as well.
With no real wire management to speak of, I had to get pretty creative with zip ties. With everything installed I was able to hide quite a bit of wiring both here behind the drives and in the top drive bay. Keeping this build tidy can be done, but takes a bit of time to sort it all out and make it look nice.
Getting everything back into place, I had to snap on the front cover over the drive. It clears the drive really nicely, but the clips that hold the front on were just as tough going in as coming out.
Getting a lot of equipment into the Godspeed was relatively easy. I was even able to house my 9800 GTX+ with room to spare. Even here though, you have to think a bit ahead. The hard drives could easily cause issues with clearance of multi-card setups.
The rear of the chassis is clean and the I/O shield goes in really nice. Just a gentle push and it almost falls into a locked position. What I did find a bit scary, is when I was removing the expansion slot covers, I caught my finger pretty good on the sharp metal between the slots. Be careful when removing these!
Tying up all the loose ends, I closed up the Godspeed One Advanced and added power. The lights surrounding the power and reset switches are subdued and don't show up well here, but the five blue LED's per fan on the door really light things up.
The window the fans are housed in does give you a bit of a peek inside at the graphics card. With the fans running the view is a bit clearer than without. If you don't turn on the LED's the view is even easier to be had.
All the lighting needed to get quality images washed out the effect of the fans in the door. I turned a few off to show just how well they flood the chassis and surrounding area with blue light.
