Inside the Core X31 Continued
The motherboard tray is dropped quite a bit from the top panel, and on it, we found eighteen wire tie points, five rubber grommets to pass wiring through, and a pair of large openings at the top for more wiring. There is also a large opening for back plate access, and the tray is labeled for ATX and Micro-ATX boards.
At the bottom of the motherboard tray, we then ran into the PSU cover. On top of it, we see a pair of metal trays for 2.5" drives, a large hole with a grommet for GPU wiring, and a cutout at the back for the front I/O wiring and the SATA drives connections.
You need to remove four screws, shift the PSU cover to the right slightly, and then lift up on it to remove it from the chassis. Once it is out, you have all of that room for the PSU at the back and options for fans or water cooling as well.
At the back of the Core X31, we find the black 120mm fan hanging there, and the sleeved cable and 3-pin connection match that of the intake fan. As for the expansion slots, the covers are held in with thumbscrews.
Behind the tray the depth for wiring is great. Thermaltake does tie up the wiring for you, but it is currently blocking one of the three optional locations to hang the plastic drive trays. Two sites fall behind the left support rail section, and the third is found under the CPU cooler access hole. With all of the tie points and well-placed holes for the wiring, it should be easy to keep the wiring tidy.
The front I/O wiring is long and gives you room to wire it cleanly without much trouble at all. In the mass of black wires, we see the HD Audio Connection, the wires for the lights and switches, the native USB 3.0 connector, the USB 2.0 connection, and the 3-pin fan connection of the Intake fan.
