Case Build and Finished Product
As expected, and since we do not use an optical drive in our test system, at least the front of the chassis keeps the sleek black look it offered out of the box.
When installing the motherboard, we found two of the standoffs were already stripped for our pleasure, the back of the chassis needs to be forced in for the video card, and the threads are not cut for the screws that hold it in place. As for the PSU and SSD, we didn't run into issues with those at least.
Out back everything is normal. The rear I/O lines up, we did manage to get the video card in with a bit of effort, and the PSU fills the large hole at the bottom.
While there is a bump to help allow the 24-pin, GPU, SATA, and front panel wiring, the part they forgot about was the 8-pin run. Even with just the one wire there, we had to force the panel back on as there is not enough room offered for that.
With everything buttoned up and ready for the power testing, without a window to view the hardware inside, not one thing about this chassis design changes. What you see out of the box is what you get when the build is completed.
Once we put power to the PSU and powered things up, there was no lighting coming through the front of the chassis, and there is not one LED in the front I/O panel either. While some may like it this way, easily finding things in the I/O becomes a feeling game. If not for the 32 dB of noise we heard from the back of the chassis, we would have had to open the P70 to even tell it was running. So, at least, it got the quiet part right.
