Case Build and Finished Product
Things are tight inside, so trying to get the ATX motherboard in is a bit of a challenge. Also, because we are down a standoff, we have to choose which one affects things the least. We removed the HDD cage to give this chassis any chance at all at keeping cool with an exhaust and an intake that is blocked off almost entirely. The case wiring sticks out just as we thought it would.
The dust shield slides in without issue, and so does the video card, but here is something to ponder: Since PSU screws are not supplied, we needed to use thumbscrews for the PSU, leaving us without enough to fill the expansion slots. We could have used the HDD screws, but then what would we use to install the HDD?
Not only is the wiring outdated in color, but also there isn't enough excess length to allow for clean wire management. The wires tend to run right across the openings, and will even impede running PSU wiring if you don't do things just right.
Once everything is back together, we see not much has changed externally, but we can slightly see the bits of the system behind the amber tinted window. The view isn't the greatest, but it is a view.
As soon as we ran the power cord and pressed the power button, we found the ring glowing blue to indicate the system has power. We kept missing it in images, but the reset has a red ring that will flash when the drive is accessed.
We also found that the temperature in the ODD bays where we laid the temperature probe is showing that the temperature of the ODD bays is seventeen degrees Celsius. It also appears that our cover is either scratched, or has a piece of something under it; either way, it's not so attractive.
After stepping back a bit to take it all in and listen to the fans, we can see the blue LED fans in the front and back are both powered and lit. While on the low setting of the fan controller, we could barely hear the fans at a foot away, and when we threw the switch to high, all we got was the dimming of the LEDs, and no speed increase at all. We are guessing someone wired the controller wrong.
