Inside the Elite 110

After removing the panels to access the interior of this chassis, we see that they have tied up some hardware as well as bundled the wiring to keep it all secure for transit.

We also removed the bezel to show the 120mm fan that they have supplied in this chassis. Thing is, we did not realize how handy the holes and wire management options were at this point, but once the build was underway, these will tend to wiring and offer a place to hide things.

The left side offers a frame component that has a lot of features. This will house either two 2.5-inch drives or a single 3.5-inch drive at the top, and it can also house a pair of 80mm fans at the bottom while still leaving the top storage drive with enough room to be used.

Across the top of the chassis, there is a removable plate that is much like the left side. This will allow the installation of a pair of 3.5-inch drives or a pair of 2.5-inch drives. That is now a total of four 2.5-inch drives, three 3.5-inch drives, or a combination of both.

Removing that top plate allows complete access to the motherboard tray. There are only a few inches on the three sides combined, but they do offer seven places to tie down the wiring in addition to the four holes that we need to install standoffs in to set the motherboard on.

All of the wiring for the Elite 110 is attached to the front bezel. In perspective, the audio, USB 3.0 with USB 2.0 tail on it, and the front panel wiring do look short, but once this bezel is lying in front of the chassis, we were able to make all of the connections with the bezel off and were able to tend to them easily enough.
