Inside the Pandora
As we disassemble the chassis and have a better look around, we begin by removing the bezel. We notice the bezel is well ventilated with large cutout areas on both sides, and near the top is the TFT screen. On the front of the chassis, there is a long magnetic dust filter that is easily removable for cleaning.
This TFT screen is Version A, and there must have been an issue with early screens, because we were sent Version B to replace this, so while we had it apart, we figured we would show what is here. As for the ones on shelves now, they will have the new screen already in place.
When we removed the doors, we realized that BitFenix is trying a ball and socket style clip this time around. So, to release the doors, you simply pull at the top and bottom edges, and these will release. To replace the panel, simply align the pins, and pop it back on.
As we get our first look inside, we find all of the wiring from the front I/O panel has been bundled, and is hanging inside the front of the chassis. Just behind that, at the floor level, we find a small cardboard box with hardware inside. In this sample, we did not find any included paperwork.
Inside the front of the chassis, there is a single 120mm fan that uses a three-pin connector for power. You can add another fan, and to be honest, there is just about enough room for three, but the holes do not accommodate more than two.
On the floor of the chassis, right behind the front panel, we find a folded bit of steel with grommets installed at the top. This will cover the wiring and provide a pathway to the components, while offering a cleaner look. On the front edge, you can install a 2.5" drive that will be visible through the window.
