Case Build & Finished Product
If you were to install an optical device, fan controller, card reader, or reservoir into the front, you could easily change the aesthetics. However, we gave up on installing optical drives years ago, and with a built-in fan controller, and no need for the others in this build, we left the front bezel as-is.
We did test the hot-swap bays for functionality, and they do work, but we closed up shop on the front at this point. In the main section, we find room at the top for a radiator, and we have one hanging on the back, and even our longer Zotac video card fits without issue. While we can see a lot of the wiring, we will admit that without the holes, even without grommets, it could have looked much worse.
The back of the Nova posed no issues for our build. The dust cover snapped right in. The video card is securely held in place with thumbscrews, and the PSU is held tightly to the steel after it is mounted.
We decided to keep most of the wiring on the front this time, but there is plenty of room here for it. The tie points help keep the front I/O wiring away from the holes so that the PSU wiring can go through easier, and there is a hole where the chassis splits to pass wiring from the front section to the back.
Even though this design is wildly different than it, we cannot help the fact that our mind tells us that this looks like the NZXT Phantom. Even though this design is chunky, we do feel that it is one of the better-looking cases to come from Azza.
When the chassis gets powered on, there is a slightly audible hum heard from the fans when the fan controller is at its highest of three settings. The green LED intensifies with each step, and will turn off when the fan controller is turned off. As for the power LED at the top, it too is orange to match the stripe that runs along this chassis.
Azza was sure to offer the front 120mm fan as an LED fan. This allows them to add even more orange lighting to the chassis, as we see the LEDs through the angled mesh here.
