Opus MT-200 Titanium Enclosure Review - Interior

When it comes to modern enthusiast cases, nearly every manufacturer will tell you they have something new to offer. When it comes to sheer looks, however, Opus Technologies puts their money where their mouth is. Come join us as we take a look at an enclosure that has a look you will probably not find anywhere else as we delve into the Opus MT-200 "Titanium" Enclosure.

The Interior

 

 

Removing the side panels *sigh* gives us access to the inside of the enclosure. While not as visually stunning as the outside of the box, there is a good deal of functionality built into the case design.

 

One of the first things to mention is the swing arm that allows you to add a side-mounted case fan. This small door is hinged and offers easy access to the fan bay, but this can look kind of bad if you happen to have a full-sized side window. I was glad to see that the folks at Opus took note of this unsightly concept and created a smaller window in the side. It still allows you to show off the interior but hides this swinging door from the eye. Good call!

 

 

Starting our tour of the internals brings us to the drive tower. Nothing special, but everything works exactly as it should. There were no problems with drive installations and the rail system used for mounting the drives was simple and effective. The top bay already has the protective plate removed and it is a simple matter to remove any others you may need to get out of the way.

 

 

Moving down the tower brings us to the 3.5" drive bays. You'll see there are only four total so this could prove troublesome if you happen to have several hard drives. A rail system is used for the installation of these drives as well, so it is a simple matter to get everything installed as it should be.

 

 

Dropping down to the basement level shows us the lower set of drive bays. In the event you don't have need of these for optical devices or fancy lighting effects, you can go ahead and toss a 120mm fan in its place. While not blowing over the hard drives, it will still add considerably to the airflow of the case as a whole.

 

 

As we all know, there is always a need for storage space for all those extra screws and rails. This particular design allows you to store these items right inside the case itself. This can be a great help if you have the tendency to put that little bag of spare parts in a hidey-hole and then conveniently forget where you put them when you need them next. With the storage here, you have everything you need right at hand.

 

Another notable item was the inclusion of extra rails that comes with the case. This allows you to use all the drive bays and not run out of parts. Just a nice little touch that some others have forgotten in the past.
