Since Kindles, tablets and phones went to touch technology, why not bring it to chassis design? Have a look at how XClio handled this task!

The XClio Touch 320 Mid Tower Chassis

We finally get a look at the front of the chassis to see what all the fuss is about the touch control panel is about. Along with the I/O at the top and the trio of covered 5.25" bays there is the large, shiny, control panel staring you right back in the face.

The front I/O has a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a microphone and headphone jack, a tiny reset button, and the odd shaped power button on the right.

The touch control panel offers control for all six of the included fans in the chassis. From here you can turn the fans off or on, turn the LEDs off or on, or you have the option to use the high or low speed fan buttons. For those who wonder, yes you can stop the fans and still have light!

The left side of the chassis offers a pair of 120mm fan attached to the mesh area to the rear of the chassis. Note this pair of locations will accept a 140mm fan, but the connections of the included fans is not typical, so rewiring is in order to keep using the touch panel if you do replace them.

The rear offers the I/O area next to a 120mm fan to blow out the back. Below you find seven expansion slots with pop-out covers, or once removed they don't go back in, next to a pair of water cooling holes. At the bottom there is the PSU location backed with a foam gasket to keep vibrations at bay.

The right side of the chassis has only this large expanse of black painted steel to offer, but this is likely against the wall of the desk anyways.

The bottom of the chassis has large rubber padded feet screwed into the chassis for support. Under the PSU there is ventilation to allow it to be installed in the fan down orientation, and just in front room for an additional 120mm fan, but neither have dust covers.

The top of the chassis has the last pair of 120mm fans installed in it, and again you can replace these with any 140mm fan as well, but remember what I mentioned about the wiring.
