Inside The Scythe FenrisWolf Mid Tower Case
The doors are considerably thinner than the rest of the chassis, and come off easily once the two thumb screws are removed. The latching of this panel is done with one tab at the top and bottom, with a full front side tab that lines up in the front. Scythe backs this panel with thin strips of rubber at the top and bottom to keep it from rattling against the body of the chassis.
With the doors out of view, you get some idea of how roomy this mid tower really is. The simplified front drive rack allows you to configure drives in any way you desire. The motherboard tray is well laid out and has notations to show where to place the risers for each type of motherboard. Both the case wiring and hardware boxes are securely fastened so nothing will move or cause damage during its voyage.
Laying the chassis on its back, we can see there is some nicely sized, round, plastic feet that have rubber pads on the bottom. This should keep any damage away from your desktop. I am surprised to not see a top exhaust fan though.
The back side gives access to the other side of the drive racks and all the screws are easily used. There is a rather large gap to the tray to allow for a lot of room to access SATA ports and such on the board. The tray itself is solid and offers very little in the idea of wire management, and no CPU access hole.
The wiring from the front I/O is plenty long enough to get where they need to be and still offers a bit of slack so you may route it cleanly. There is an e-SATA, USB 2.0, and HD / AC97 audio connections. In a ribbon cable style run, there are the power, reset, power LED, HDD activity LED and case speaker connections.
Inside of the drive rack, each slot is lined with a strip of rubber to isolate whatever drive you install. At the bottom is a three bay cover that has a 120mm Slipstream installed. This can be moved to any position, and the other bay covers adjusted to fit the plan. Everything in the front for the covers uses thumb screws for fast simple swapping or removal.
Looking inside of the rear of the Wolf, there is a shelf of sorts punched out of the tray that helps to hold the PSU in place; again, there is isolation material on this to keep the chassis silent from squeaks. Both 120mm fans have this same 3-pin power connection and I found no adapters included, so be sure you have the extra motherboard headers for these, or that you have the appropriate adapters to go to a 12V, 4-pin Molex connection.
