Inside the Signature Series S10
Pressing on the bottom of the "door" tab, both panels open up, and we found that the rear section is on pins so that the larger panel can be removed as well. Inside it is easy to see the three compartments of this design, and we found the wiring tied tightly to the motherboard tray, and the hardware sitting below where the PSU will go a bit later.
In the front section, at the very top of the chassis, we find a pair of oblong holes on either side of this part of the chassis. This allows the installation of a fan controller into the top panel of the chassis, and judging by the angle; there is no way to fill this spot with an optical drive of any form.
The main purpose of the thinner front section is to allow room for six 3.5" drives to be installed. The trays slide in vertically and are cooled by a fan at the bottom, which we will see when looking at the other side of this area.
If you are to pull out at the top of the tab marked "vent", this full-length filter slides out the left side of the chassis to keep all of the air flowing into the main and PSU chambers dust free. This will come put completely, and can easily be run under the faucet to clean it.
The reason there is an opening behind the front storage compartment is so that this trio of fans has an unimpeded source of cooler ambient air from the room. These fans are attached to a removable plate, and it will support a 360mm radiator here as well. The plate is also drilled to allow a pair of 140mm fans or a 280mm radiator instead.
The pair of fans at the top of the chassis are 140mm in size. They are also mounted to a removable plate so that you do not have to need the top to be removable to access the mounting screws. Near the motherboard tray, there are long holes that allow the fan wiring to be run out of the main chamber to keep things looking as clean as possible.
The motherboard tray offers a large CPU cooler access holt, it has six grommets to keep wiring clean, and offers twelve tie points punched into it, so wiring can be tended to behind the tray as well.
At the bottom of the motherboard tray, there is a solid panel that goes from the front to the back to separate the main and PSU compartments. There is a large grommet in the hole here, and this allows for GPU wiring to pass through easily.
