Once I removed the side panel of this case, I discovered the heart and guts of this case. On my first observation a few things popped out at me again. The first one was that I once again was disappointed not to find any sort of slide out motherboard tray. I also noticed two fans, one in the back and one in the bottom-right. The case is also very roomy and easy to work in.
The front of the case has tons of room for all your 5.25" and 3.5" needs. They are basic bays which use screws to hold your parts in. The slide out and slide in plastic devices never really worked so most cases use the ordinary screw in method. At the bottom you can see the monster 120mm fan pushing air into the case. If you place your hard drives in front of that fan, it will definitely keep them cool and eliminate the need for an extra HDD cooler.
Above is a close-up of the 120mm fan at the bottom right of the case. Unfortunately, I could not find the exact CFM of this fan but I wouldn't think it pushes more then 70-CFM since it is very quiet. You can also see where it would be ideal to place your hard drives.
As we mentioned above, there is room for one 80mm fan in the back for exhaust purposes. This fan is placed right above your CPU to remove all the heat your processor generates from the case. This also has a low CFM of about 30-40 CFM probably. It does provide quite a good noise/performance ratio from my testing.
Above you see your basic motherboard tray. It does not slide out or pop out, it is a fixed tray. It uses your normal brass stand-offs to install your motherboard to your case. It has enough room to even fit a huge dual CPU motherboard (attempted with a MSI K7D Master L).
Above you see the a picture of the top of the case. I have noticed that there is more than enough room for a future exhaust fan (92mm or 120 mm). This is a good idea if you want to maximize your cooling in this case.
