Inside the XClio Touch 320 Mid Tower Chassis

The fans mounted inside the left panel both come with fan grills on the inside to keep wiring out of them, and are connected with the pair of 4-pin connections on roughly fifteen inches of wire to reach the controller unit inside the chassis.

Our first view into the Touch 320 you can see that the hardware is tied to the optical bays and there is a strange box above all of the tied wiring lying on the floor of the chassis.

These clips on the optical bays release with a tab under each clip, they then swing out allowing the drive to slide in. once the drive is positioned properly the clips will snap back into their locked positions.

The eight 3.5" drive bays have tool-less latches as well, and on both sides of the bays! To remove these you simply twist the red handle and it will unlock and pull out. With the drives slid in from inside the chassis, you align the holes and lock these back in place.

With six large holes and eighteen places to tie to, wire management behind the motherboard tray is going to be easy. There is a large CPU back plate access hole and in the bump below it, there is text explain riser positioning.

Just above the management hole which will be right in front of the PSU, there is the Touch 320's brain for a lack of a better term. This box takes 12V power and since this wiring is split, it powers the front as well as offering a centralized point to plug in all of the included fans. The empty pair of holes at the top of it is where the pair on the door plugs in later.
