Inside The Sharkoon Rebel9 Pro Economy Mid Tower Case
Behind the front bezel you will find room for up to nine devices. In the chassis you get five sets of tool-less clips for the 5.25" devices. The 3.5" drives need adapters, but can go in any slot you find makes the most sense. The hardware box was supposed to be tied to the bays. During transit, it broke loose and was free to go wherever. No damage occurred nor did the hardware box spill even one component.
The motherboard tray will support full ATX, ATX, and m-ATX motherboards. It also comes stamped with three holes for wiring at the right and bottom, and also offers a fourth just above the CPU for the 8-pin CPU power line. The tray is stamped with labeling and numbers to make the riser installation easier, and just above you will find the CPU cooler, back plate, access hole.
The rear of the chassis uses full cover expansion slot covers screwed in to the chassis. Sharkoon also left a cut away in the frame for better access to these screws, something widely overlooked in most designs. To help support the PSU, Sharkoon uses four rubber risers to keep the PSU level and supported, but also to keep it isolated from vibrating the chassis.
Behind the motherboard tray you will find stamped out places for wire tie mounting, to help with wire management even more. Another plus behind the tray is the fact that the tray sits almost ¾" away from the door panel. So even the 24-pin wire can get routed back here and not interfere with the flat door panel being placed back on.
Removing the front bezel was tougher than most, but with a bit more force I was able to get it loose. The power, reset and HDD activity wiring is connected to the bezel, and tightly wired into a small hole. Be careful the first time you remove this. There is the place for the fan at the bottom, and even here Sharkoon offers an intake filter to keep dust to a minimum. This filter is on top of the filtering screen placed behind the bezel that does the same thing.
Wiring is all sheathed in black for the e-SATS, audio, and USB wiring, while the power, reset, and HDD activity wiring is left multi-colored. These wires will make it around to any position on the motherboard, and are even long enough to route behind the motherboard tray.
