Inside the Legacy MX2-B
Our first glance inside of the chassis shows the unusual layout that allows this chassis to keep its sleek and elegant exterior while still offering room for an ATX motherboard.
In the front, the bay rack starts off with a single tray to allow for a slot load optical drive. There are tabs on the tray to screw the drive in as well as access holes through the side rails to make life a little easier.
Below that, we have the HDD rack. Here, with help of thumbscrews and grommets put into the holes in the drives, the case allows three of them to be slid in and locked into this rack.
Then, below the HDD rack, there is the tray, which with the removal of four screws, slides out to allow the installation of a PSU.
At the top of the chassis, we have the first of three fans that have black frames and white blades, and this one is 140mm in size. These fans all come with 3-pin connections that also have a 4-pin Molex pig tail from the 3-pin.
The motherboard tray has the standoffs installed for an ATX motherboard, offers fourteen tie points, and a large CPU cooler back plate access hole with plastic trim around it.
The floor of the chassis offers only room for a pair of 120mm fans. This pair has sleeved cabling and also offers a 3-pin and Molex connection to power them.
Inside the rear of the MX2-B, we find thumbscrews holding in the expansion slot covers, and while most are very noisy, there is the option to add a pair of 80mm fans to help exhaust this chassis.
As we look at the back of the motherboard tray, we see the back of the HDD rack is open to wire easily, and there is a hole just below to let the PSU wiring out. A pair of grommets offers ways to get the wiring back to the motherboard along with the whole top edge being open. At the bottom right corner, there are four tabs that will allow a 2.5-inch drive to be installed there.
These wires are long enough to get to any motherboard form factor used inside of this chassis. While the grommets in the tray keep most of the switch and LED leads, HD Audio, USB 2.0, and USB 3.0 wiring hidden, what does show is black and blends right in.
