Inside the Elite 120 Advanced Chassis
After removing three thumbscrews from the back of the chassis, the top and sides will slide back this far. At this point you need to lift the top and sides off to gain access to the interior.
Looking inside the Elite 120 Advanced you can see that the wires are bound not only to themselves, but are also tied to the floor to keep them from scratching things up. You can also see that the hardware is twist tied to the HDD rack. As for the manual, it is shipped outside of the inner packaging under the chassis.
The one and only 5.25" bay offered uses a combination of bent parts of the cage securing the drive on the opposite side, while on this side you have this simple to use tool-less latch to secure the device into place.
Looking in the chassis from the other side, you can see there are two trays that come out the right side. It ships with a pair of adapter trays that will allow both a 1.8" and a 2.5" drive to go in each tray at once. You can also pull off the side sliders and just slide in three 3.5" drives if that is what you need.
The side of the hard drive bays closest to the motherboard even offers four mounting holes that work with four clips sent in the hardware to allow you to install an optional 120mm fan here.
I made mention of the 80mm fan inside of the chassis. Well, here it is, mounted inside of this steel frame that with the removal of three screws this can come out of the chassis if your CPU cooler needs the room instead.
Backing out quite a bit you can now see the motherboard tray and the wire management offered around the top, bottom and right side of it. Another nice thing is that there is space enough through the top or the sides to get the motherboard into the chassis, yet the chassis is still structurally sound.
A look at the inside of the back of the chassis shows that you have 65mm of room for the CPU cooler. As reference, when you do install the motherboard, if the cooler is taller than the fan bracket, you are going to have issues getting the PSU into the chassis.
Even though there isn't a window, removing three screws isn't going to stop an owner from opening this chassis to show it off to others. That said I really like the all black cabling with this chassis so that you can have a very clean looking build inside of the Elite 12 Advanced.
