Inside the Silentium 920B
For some of the previous images I had shove wires back in through the PSU hole so that they weren't popping out in the side or rear images. Now I see why. While the hardware is neatly tied to the hard drive rack, the wiring is just run in the chassis and left flopping around.
There are four 5.25" bays that will accept screws if you wish, but for now have these plastic tool-free clips that you just twist to lock and unlock. The other side will accept screws too, but has bent tabs of steel to press against the drive to let the clips work a bit better. Just below is the rack that will allow you to stack a pair of 2.5" drives.
Then you run into the HDD rack that offers five plastic trays that accept both 3.5" and 2.5" drives. There is also a fan in front of these, but to show it I will have to peel the front bezel (which is coming up soon).
The motherboard tray offers three standoffs across the top, but use steel bumps that have threaded holes for risers in the lower six. Around the board you can find three large holes to the right and eleven places to tie wiring to.
The lower part of the motherboard tray has a couple more tie points and a large hole for the PSU wires to get behind there. On the floor you can see the material glued to the floor over the fan hole and of course the PSU area with steel bumps to support the front of the unit.
Inside the rear of the chassis you can see the 120mm fan and its 4-pin Molex connector for power. You can also see that the replaceable expansion slot covers are all held in with thumbscrews.
Behind the motherboard tray there is 20mm of room between the frame and the tray, but don't forget the panel gives you another 5mm as well. On the left side there is plenty of room to put bulk wiring from a non-modular PSU.
The wiring is not all black like I would like, but there isn't a window to see them through later either. There is the fan power lead at the top that can use the 3-pin fan connector for power or the Molex adapter. Then there is the native USB 3.0 with a USB 2.0 tail on it, another USB 2.0 connection, and the HD Audio or AC'97 connections. Then there is the rainbow of colors to make the front panel connections for the lights and switches.
