Case Build and Finished Product
Without a window in play on the side panel, we were much less concerned with trying to hide everything. Even so, we still have plenty of room for this ATX based system, a longer than stock video card, and with a modular PSU, there is little mess to be found anyways.
When we popped in the dust shield we did notice the chassis had been slightly dented inward. Although, it was not enough to cause concern, as we just pulled it back into line. The card went in fine, but we could have used more screws. The PSU is nice and tight in the bottom.
Since we went ahead and ran the PSU leads on the front side, all we had to deal with here is the front I/O wiring. While it is nothing special, it is easy to see how we could run more wiring here, off to the left of course.
Without using an optical drive, and the fact that there is no window in our chassis, we are left with much of the same view as we had when we first removed the packaging. The finished build is just clean and simple; there is nothing too aggressive about it, and it is something that will fit in almost anywhere.
As we set the chassis up for testing, we found that both of the LEDs are white, even though we only have the system power LED currently active. At this point, we went ahead and snuck that white version back in, just to remind you of the color options of the Comrade. Also, when running, performance suffers with just one fan, but on the flip side, you have to get super close to the rear of the chassis to even hear that fan running.
