Case Build and Finished Product
Back to the front once more, this time the chassis is full of goodies, and since we don't use an ODD for our case builds, the fascia has remained unchanged throughout the process.
Without an ODD in the bays, it left room for the extra wiring, and we found the SSD to slide right into place. The board went in fine, the AIO, however, was tight, but we managed. Our card fits without issue, although it will not any lower, there is plenty of room for a decent sized PSU down at the bottom.
The back has filled up since the last we saw it. The dust cover is tight and leaves it bowing when installed, making you have to push a little more with the motherboard installation is all. The card fit without much hassle and the PSU offers no issues to report either.
We chose to keep most of the wiring up front as not to have to hassle with wires crossing and things being too thick for the panel to go on nicely. Without a window, there is no need to hide it as there isn't any air flow for it to be blocking really.
As we went to install the side panels for our last image, we noticed the left side panel is only made to clear the typical fan screws. Using the AIO and rounded heads, we had to disfigure the steel to set the screws, but we were able to get the panel mounted.
As we usually do, we missed the flicker of the red LED as the SSD booted the OS, but we can see the blue LED shining brightly out the face of the Soundwave-A. At this time, we have the AIO in place, but we did test the stock fan and at a foot away it is inaudible, and air flow is lacking as-is.
