Not too much in this area, but I thought a few of nice touches needed to be addressed. Though a bit difficult to see in this photo, the hard drive bays are accessible from this side of the box. As I mentioned before, a rail system is used for all drive installations, so it is nice to be able to get everything in place without having to move from the outside of the case to the inside. Lets take a little closer look to show you what I mean:
Just open the door and you have full access to the two hard drive bays. Slip a couple of rails into the mounting holes of the drive and slide it home.
Once you have the motherboard tray removed from the enclosure, you might think you'll need to go dig out the trusty screwdriver, but that isn't the case. Since the entire box is designed to be as tool-free as possible, the mounting system for the motherboard continues this trend.
Where you would expect to see brass standoffs you will find these little pins instead. You can see they have been crosscut to allow an outward pressure to be exerted at all times. As you place the motherboard over these pins, you just push gently down until they snap into place and you're motherboard will be securely mounted to the tray. There is even an included tool mounted on the back of the tray that allows you to remove the board from the pins without damaging it.
Our final installation note doesn't really concern system installation, but aesthetics. Everyone wants a good looking case so the folks at Opus tossed in a neon light just for grins. It is powered by a standard Molex connector and even comes with screws to get it mounted. If you'd prefer something a bit less permanent you'll have to provide your own two-sided tape.
