Inside the GT1
Opening the GT1 things are sort of all over the place as far as the wiring is concerned. It is tied down somewhat to keep it from flopping around, and there is a matte finish to the paint in here.
The three 5.25" drives need screws on the opposing side, but here you can secure devices in these bays with these tool-free clips. I know the neon green is something they had in stock, but it just sticks out too much in this chassis.
The hard drive rack is broken into two sections. The top is partially removable, holds two 3.5" drive trays, and has room for a single 2.5" drive. The lower section offers trays for four 3.5" drives.
Pulling out the pair of trays, and with the removal of a single screw, the left side of the rack will come off to allow for longer cards or a pedestal for a water pump.
Under the cowling on the roof of the chassis there are clips built into the plastic frame to allow users to simply clip in a pair of fans. This way you don't have to deal with removing the top or messing around with screws.
The partial motherboard tray does have an access hole for coolers, three wire tie points, and offers raised steel bumps as standoff for ATX motherboards. On the right side you have three management holes, one at the bottom of Micro-ATX, and the lower section is completely open.
On the floor of the chassis there are steel rails to support the PSU so that fan grills don't rub on the floor. The fan mounting position is also moved pretty far forward so that PSU wiring won't block its usage.
Inside of the rear, you can see the clear 120 mm fan that also offers red LED lighting to shine on to your components. The top expansion slot is reusable, but the lower six are the pop-out style. Since you secure cards outside of the chassis, these are flush to the rear of the case to allow the most room inside.
Behind the motherboard tray there isn't much room to be found. There are spots with 15mm of clearance, but the rolled edges and structural bumps limit room to much less in some spots. With the depth of the door in the mix, you are offered up to 25mm of room in the deeper areas.
There is a lot of wiring too, and it is all over the place with colors. On the left are some of the Molex and 3-pin connectors to power and illuminated the fans and make the switch operational. Then you have the front panel control wires, the USB 2.0 lead, a SATA cable for the dock with a SATA power connection too short for the image, the native USB 3.0 cable and the HD Audio connector.
