Inside the Sentey GS-6070 II Abaddom

I stopped to get an image of these clear fans hanging on the door mostly to show that they are to be powered via the pair of 4-pin Molex connections at the end of the long leads coming from the fans.

The first look inside the chassis seems to be pretty chaotic. The wires are just strewn about with no attempt to tie up the front I/O wiring, just the fan power leads. As for the hardware and paperwork, the hardware is tied up in the ODD bays and the paperwork is lying on the floor of the case.

The front I/O takes up what would be the top bay inside of the chassis, so below that are four 5.25" bays with these tool-less clips. This style of twist and lock clip is actually pretty secure to keep drives in place even if moving it around a bit. The bottom bay does offer a 3.5" drive conversion tray.

As for hard drives, you can install up to four of them on these slide in trays. There are screw holes for 2.5" drive mounting, but the depth is wrong and may cause issues for connectivity.

Inside of the top of the chassis, under all of that mesh we saw behind the front I/O, is this pair of 120mm fans that will glow with blue LEDs that will flood the chassis more than it is visible through the mesh once powered. These also use Molex power connections.

The tray offers room for Micro-ATX and ATX motherboards, has an access hole and three management holes for wiring. There are also only three places to tie wiring, but with the limited offset, there isn't much room behind this anyway.

On the floor of the chassis there is a pair of rubber pads to support the front of the PSU. Mine is too long, but if you use a short PSU, you can use the 120mm fan hole, but the wiring may still cause issues.

In the back you will find another blue LED clear 120mm fan, also powered with a Molex connection. As for the latches that hold the expansion cards, they are capable to do what I needed and didn't leave me looking for a screw for better mounting.

Again we get a rainbow of wiring to deal with, but at least most of the wires were long enough to hide. The HD Audio cable is too short though and requires you to droop it over the board to get to the header. Also the USB 3.0 cable needs to go to the back of the motherboard, so you definitely loose on of the holes in the back of the chassis for this.

You have to choose your battles carefully here. With only a 15mm offset, you need to be careful about bunching wires and how all of the Molex clips are lying, as it will easily cause issues replacing the panel.
