The Exterior



When you first take a gander at this case you see what has become almost commonplace; a plastic front bezel. While the color is not exactly ordinary, there isn't really anything new or innovative about the design. It does, however, have some features that bear mentioning so we'll run these down for you...



There are a total of four oval openings residing in the front cover panel, each getting progressively larger as you go up the door. While the three bottom holes work as a venting for the front fan mounts, the top one has a small plastic cover that can be slid upward. Why have this on a front panel?



Well, to hide the power button and front I/O ports! While the SilverStone model we looked at previously had the power and reset buttons accessible through this opening, there were no front ports located here. What this does is to allow you to keep the front cover locked (yes, there is a key with it too) so people cannot access optical devices for unauthorized program installations. This can be extremely handy for both a work concept as well as a home design for those with kids who think they know more than you about the PC.


On top of this, you can still access a set of headphones or external USB peripherals without having to give up internal access to the bays hidden inside. This still offers the same level of protection but gives added functionality to the system.



Opening the outer door shows us a set of three optical drive bays and a pair of 3.5" bays that are all externally accessible. Since one of the floppy bays is taken up by the I/O ports, you'll have to remove this device if you have need of a second peripheral requiring this size drive bay.



Yes, you are seeing what you think you see. You have the ability to add in another three optical devices on the lower half of the system front. This will allow those who have several rheostat devices and lighting extras to find a home for them all. It does, though, limit the number of hard drives you can install into the system.
