Inside the BitFenix Outlaw Inverted Mid Tower Case
If you didn't quite have a handle on the layout, with the doors removed it is easy to now understand the inverted layout and general size of the room you have to play with inside the Outlaw. One thing to note is that on the side of the hard drive bays, it seems the paint didn't quite cover everything on the right edge.
There are four 5.25" drive bays that don't use any form of tool-less mechanism, but thumbscrews are offered for mounting devices. The lowest of the drive bays does not have an external cover; it is actually used to help in fan mounting as you will see soon enough.
The four hard drive bays also use thumbscrews for mounting, but two of the drive bays have rubber grommets installed to keep drive vibrations at bay. The top two bays do not have the grommets, but you can still install devices there as well. If you plan on a 2.5" drive, it screws into the floor in this rack.
The seven expansion slot covers are break-away, and once removed the covers can't go back into the case. For mounting they again supply more thumbscrews. You can also see the only included fan with its 3-pin power connector.
Behind the tray, as I made mention of, there is almost no room for anything thicker than a fan cable, and it's better reach to the right, because the power connector is too thick to fit. On the right however, next to the 5.25" bays there is close to ¾" and next to the hard drive rack there is just more than 1 ½" of room to tuck the wiring. This area is also where you will find the box full of hardware. To the right of it is where, if you wish to, slide in 120mm fans for intake to the case.
Since wires aren't meant to be behind the tray, the holes and tie down points are all very well placed. They are large enough to allow many thick wires to pass through and you will see with the board in place, that lining these up strategically was a thought in the design.
BitFenix gives you connections for the audio, motherboard power, reset and activity LEDs, and the pair of USB 2.0 connections. To help hide them as they run across the top of the chassis, they are sleeved black as far as they can be while still allowing enough flexibility at the end for easy connectivity.
Those wires are connected to the front bezel and are routed through the hole at the top of the steel face to allow the bezel to snap back into place. Looking at the 5.25" drive bays, the bottom three have covers in place in the steel. The lowest of those is actually to help with a dual 120mm fan configuration as the intake to the Outlaw and is why there isn't access through the bezel.
