The Build and Finished Product Continued
After closing up shop, we take another spin around the A30i. I thought the front looked too good to break it all up with an optical drive, and since the fans are Molex connected, a fan controller is pointless unless you are swapping out all of the fans in the chassis.
From the left, we can now see the HD7950 very easily through the side window. You can also see there is plenty of room left for longer cards, as the longer than stock card I use is still not visible through the mesh near the front.
The back of the chassis goes together well, and there were not any issues with the chassis warping when the tray is pulled out or slid back in. When it came time to replace all the thumbscrews, the holes were all lined up.
The right side of the chassis offers a view of the CPU cooler from this angle, but as you move around, you can also see the memory, the motherboard, and even the top of the VGA installed on the other side of the chassis.
Once the chassis is powered, there is an audible level of noise that gave a 38dB reading on our meter. As for the 200mm fan, when it is powered it will flood the interior with a bright blue glow.
From the front of the chassis, you can see the top fan through the mesh in the ODD bays. The 90mm fan in the front is also illuminated blue. I did miss the red HDD activity LED, but the power indicator light matches the fans with the blue LED under the reset button.
