Inside the Armor A30i Speed Edition Gaming Cube
You access the interior through the top of the chassis. After removing two thumbscrews, the top slides back a bit, then lifts off of the chassis to expose the guts. You can now also see the 200mm clear fan in the top, which is powered with a 4-pin Molex connection.
After removing a lot more screws, the rear of the chassis slides out with the motherboard tray, and allows more access inside of the chassis, which makes life easier when installing the motherboard. Both of the 60mm fans in the back are also found to use 4-pin Molex connection to power them.
Removing six screws from the top edges of the sides, the PSU support rack comes off the top of the chassis. Putting the PSU into the frame is easier, and it also gives access to the motherboard tray when completing the build.
At the front is another cage for the ODD bays, and a 3.5" bay that sits on its side. On the top (which is the bottom in this image) there are also spots for two 2.5" drives to mount.
The last thing that is easily removed is the dual bay HDD rack. There are rubber grommets to allow mounting from the bottoms of the drives. The sides do not touch, and the vibrations are isolated when you send the screws through the grommets.
With everything now out of the chassis, we can finally get a look at the inside of the front of this A30i. Tabs hold the bezel in place, and it does need to be removed to get the bay covers off. It is easy to see that the 90mm fan in the front has no dust filter either.
The wiring from the front I/O panel runs all the way past the end of the chassis. This allows plenty of length to get all of them connected, and also allows you to slide the tray out a bit to disconnect them after, rather than having to pull the PSU for access.
