Inside the P380 Continued

The motherboard tray is well equipped. There is a very large access hole, two wiring holes above it, and the three with grommets down the right side. We also count eleven tie points for wiring, so keeping things clean will not be an issue for wiring.

The floor of the chassis shows the dust filter for the PSU, and looking closer, we find a rail at the back and one on the tray to support the PSU over it. We also see another large hole with a grommet, to pass wiring right from the PSU to the back of the tray.

The included fans all sport the same 3-pin connection, and they all have a lead that ends in a 3-way micro-switch for high, medium, and low fans speed operation. As for the expansion slots, the covers, and future cards are secured with plastic covered thumbscrews.

There is more than 20mm of space behind the motherboard tray and a ton of room at the front without the bays in place. There is the edge of the tray to consider, though, as it gets bent, there is only 10mm of space to pass wires from the back to the front.

There is also a six-fan hub screwed onto the back of the motherboard tray. This is powered with a 4-pin Molex, and will run any fan connected to it at 12V. The factory fans still have options, though, as you can still set the switches.

If we have one complaint, this is it. While the wiring is black, and the USB 3.0 connection offers a 2.0 end as well, all of this wiring is very short in its length, and will require more of it to be seen than is needed.
