The Danger Den Q20 Acrylic Components

On the rear of the chassis (at the left) there is a removable ventilated area behind where the hard drives will install above the rear I/O panel and expansion slot plate will install. The large hole at the bottom is then for the PSU leaving the round hole in the middle to accept the large power button. The front panel has a large removable panel and was shipped with the dual bay option at the top.

The top panel of the chassis is sitting furthest back in this image with the floor of the chassis with the cutout for the PSU is in the middle. In the front is the black painted steel plate that holds the rear I/O dust cover and seven expansion slots.

This is one of the clear acrylic side panels that will enclose either the left or the right side when the build is complete.

The motherboard tray is drilled and threaded for the various things that attach here. The left has both AXT and Micro-ATX holes in place for the risers, and just to the right are twelve holes to mount SSDs right to the tray. The eight large holes at the top right will allow you to pass a screwdriver through to mount optical bay devices.

This is the left side of the chassis, structurally. It is drilled on the left to allow access to the expansion cards mounting screws, and gets etched with Danger Den at the bottom.

Of course both sides of the chassis will need a cover, and in the Q20, they happen to be a pair of clear acrylic panels. This and the other one I showed are reversible per side, so there isn't a true right and left cover panel.

This is the last of the acrylic components as we cover the radiator shroud with part of the hard drive rack sitting inside of it. The pair of parts at the left is used with the one in the radiator shroud to mount 3.5" drives. The pair at the right is clear, and is used to allow 5.25" device mounting in the front of the Q20.
