The Build and Finished Product
Since the optical drive does little to change the front of the case, I will cover the fact that the tool-free latch here, well, sucks. They don't actually lock into the drive as most do; they sort of position the drive is all. For what you might ask, it lines the drive up perfectly to drop in a screw or two through the tool-free clip.
With my new kit from GIGABYTE installed, I really have nothing to complain about with the process. As you can see, the chassis is left open and free of clutter with very little work from me to do so. The attention to detail, like black wiring and wires that actual go where they need to, comes much appreciated.
Once the door is back on, your view of the inside is somewhat limited, but at least you can still see your cooler, RAM, and see the light show from the top fan if the case sits on your desk.
No issues to report with getting the VGA in or the rear I/O shield or anything. All the PSU holes lined up as well as not needing to flex the chassis to get the thumbscrews back in for the cards either.
In the back there really isn't a need to tie much up anywhere. I mean to get this running I have the 8-pin and 24-pin back here, but the majority of the wiring naturally hides next to the drive rack. All that's left to do now is put the door on and we can add power to the Chaser MK-1.
It's a bit tough to see, but the case lighting is on, in the blue mode. From the front you get the lighting through the bottom as the 200mm fan is just behind it. You also get a bit of the lighting from the top showing through from the other Colorshift fan.
Up at the top there is an indicator LED on the left to show if the fans are in HI or LOW speeds. The FAN LED button will allow red, green, blue, and a combination of all three. It also has an "off" setting in that run to allow you to not have any LED action for while you sleep, let's say. From the images online I would have expected a brighter LED in the center, but all I got was a dull glow on this one.
The further you step away from the chassis, the less lighting you will see with the mesh, or mesh and dust filter combination blocking most of the light at this angle. Still, a very attractive looking chassis that will add uniqueness to any build.
