Inside the AZZA Fusion 3000

This door panel has a lot going on. It has a dust filter that I peeled out of the flip side of the door, but it also has holes for dual 120mm fans, dual 140mm fans, but also the option for a 200mm fan as well. To gain access to some of the holes, the plastic mesh on the outside can be loosened from in here and moved to do your business.

I told you I would get to the bottom of why the top looked removable, because it is. Here you can install up to a triple 120mm radiator and still have room inside to add fans. There are also two large holes, one on either side, to allow wiring the fans and such to go much easier.

The four 5.25" bays offer tool-free thumbscrews that don't fall out. These slide into position over the hole in the device and simply screw in. At the bottom you can see the PCB for the 2.5" hot-swap bays.

Six of the eight 3.5" drives have the dual drive back planes you can see here. These offer Molex connectivity for power, SATA connections to send and receive and even has a pair of 3-pin fan headers per board. Under this setup is the pair of 3.5" bays that use thumbscrews to mount the drives.

The motherboard tray has plenty of wiring options with the assortment of holes with and without grommets and a pair of CPU back plate access holes. With all of the various motherboard form factors that fit in the Fusion 3000, you should be able to have a nice and clean finished product.

The floor of the chassis has a rack for the PSU to rest on, particularly the larger PSUs needed to power dual socket systems with multiple cards stacked in the PCI-e slots. There is room in front for some added fans, but this depends on the length of the PSU as to you using multiple fans here, just a single 120mm fan, or none at all.

Inside of the back of the chassis AZZA also gives you a fan guard on the inside of the 140mm exhaust fan. Holding in the ten expansion slot covers are plastic covered thumbscrews for very secure mounting of even the heaviest card and they can be up to 360mm in length.

Behind the motherboard tray things are pretty simple. With holes everywhere you need them to be, joust point the wires where they need to go and they almost wire themselves in this case.

Just how much room do you get? The Imperial tape show just over ¾" of room. For those who like it in Metric numbers, you will get 20mm here and an additional 4mm with the bump on the door panel, plus or minus some play in the door panel.

The bottom of the chassis looks pretty scratched up, but that is because it doesn't ship with any feet. There is a dust filter for the PSU, but the large mesh area in the middle is left to allow the dust Jack-elopes to build up just as easy.

The wiring from the Fusion 3000 is pretty simple to figure out. There is a lead for the USB 2.0 connection and the lead for the native USB 3.0 as well. Then you will find the power, reset, HDD activity and power LED connections and a HD Audio connection to finish out the wiring.
