The Build and Finished Product
I have the board, CPU, memory and GPU installed, and I had to open up the front to continue the build. Here you can see the fan housed inside of the cover for the bottom 3 bays. Since I have my optical drive at the top, I figured I'd put the HDD at the bottom and see if the fan cover will still fit. Speaking of which, here is the fully assembled adapter mounted to my hard drive. Three thumb screws on either side secure it into the bays, and yes the fan and cover do fit installed in front of the drive adapter.
The PSU I chose is not modular, in fact it has quite a bit of wiring. I was able to hide a lot of the extras, and was still able to come up with some pretty unimpeded management of the wires. Everything seemed smooth and lined up as I assembled the build. If you look at the bottom left, the drive adapter does protrude into the chassis a bit with the fan in front, but makes no difference, as there is plenty of room for it to do so.
The rear view of the chassis fills out nicely once parts are installed, leaving a clean place to start the rats nest of wires usually hidden behind a PC.
One last look inside before I close up shop and add some power to the Scythe. Next to the drives is plenty of room to hide and tie back any wiring. I was able to hide most of mine above the optical drive, so I didn't need much of this space.
Once power was added I had to open the door to push the power button. With fans speeding up as the PC boots, there is the blue glow of the power LED to let you know it's on. As if my 9800GTX's fan spooling up 'till the drivers kicked in wasn't sign enough. Although, now that I think about it, I never did hear the case fans, so it is a good thing for those with silent cooling.
I had to open her up to drop in my CD for testing to see how things go inside the Scythe once the images are done, so I snapped another image.
Once the door is closed back up, there is no visible lighting to be seen, and once my video card drivers kicked in, it left the chassis very quiet indeed. This case would be perfect for the living room or bedroom as there is little noise and no annoying flashy LED's drowning the room in light.
