Case Build and Finished Product
Sticking with the red theme, we went with a NiC-C5 CPU cooler that is just short enough to fit and clear the door panel. We also went with the smaller video card for color, rather than using the longer card, which had no issues fitting with the offset in the top drive cage.
Around back, the dust shield snapped in tighter than most, but the fit is quite solid. After installing the PSU and extra slot cover, we were left with only one screw to hold in our card, and we still have four slots to consider populating.
While there is an eight-pin management hole, you need flat cables to get around the motherboard in the first place. Then, in order to not impede on the door, it also needs to lay flat against the tray for its entire length. Off to the left, we had no issues tending the chassis wiring, and we can use these tie points for the 24-pin lead, or anything else that runs on the other side.
Since we had the option available to us, we took the side panel from the white and purple version, and slid it onto the side of the red and white one. The view of the components is not blocked with tinting, and is ready for some Alchemy LED strips, or fans to help light the interior.
The LEDs are white when active, and since they are placed at the top of the chassis, it is highly unlikely that these will bother most users. It was also at this time that we had to look at the fan to be sure it was spinning, because we could not yet hear it. Once we spun it around and set the meter a foot away, we found the mere 25dB of noise to be very nice.
In case you had forgotten that red and white are not the only option, here we have all three versions we were sent to remind you that once in full swing, this chassis can be customized to your exact tastes.
