Removing the front section of the cover, we found the two-bay HDD rack. This is removable to allow longer power supplies to be installed and is loaded from the back. You do, however, need to remove the cover for wiring purposes.

After removing the front section, we could them remove the longer section that covers the PSU from view. We see that the floor is ventilated, so the PSU gets fresh air, and we also see dense rubber pads applied to help isolate the PSU from the chassis.

Hanging in the back of the chassis is the second supplied fan, but this time, it is a 120mm fan. The fan is powered via a 3-pin connection, but it is in front of the expansion slot covers held in with thumbscrews, making it harder to see.

Behind the motherboard tray, we find plenty of room to wire the chassis without much obstruction. There is a three bay rack for 2.5" drives placed here, it is removable, and could play up on wiring if left in place. We can also see that the hardware is shipped in the HDD bay at the bottom.

As to the chassis wiring, things are simpler than usual. All you have to do is plug in the native USB 3.0 connection, the button and LED leads, and then hook up the HD Audio connection, and you are good to go. We also made sure to get the front fan lead in the image, to show they are indeed 3-pin connections on these case fans.
