Inside the Shogun Continued
The standard motherboard tray offered in the Shogun is capable of housing a Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, or ATX motherboard, but for EATX, there is another addition we have to install. Three of the wire management holes have grommets, while those at the top do not, the CPU cooler access is large, the motherboard tray is clearly marked and there are twelve tie points for attaching wires.
The floor of the Shogun has rubber pads on both sides of the ventilation for the PSU, and the length of the mesh will accommodate longer power supplies well. Just in front of that mesh, we see the first of the trays which allow for 2.5" drive installation. There is also a grommet on the motherboard try where all of the PSU wires exit the inside of the chassis.
At the rear of this case, we find the third 120mm fan which is pre-installed, and all three fans are 3-pin powered with black leads. There are thumbscrews to support expansion cards, they are accessed from inside of the case, and the frame is shaped to allow a straight shot at the screw heads.
Behind the motherboard tray, we see things like the Chroma PCB above the access hole, which is powered via 4-pin Molex connectivity. We see an additional pair of 2.5" drive trays in the middle, and while there is 25mm of space here, BitFenix offers straps to help keep wiring tight to the tray and tidy. On the left, that is where you will remove the drive trays and fill the bays.
Most of the wiring is sufficient in length, but we do notice that the HD Audio cable near the USB 2.0 cable is short. The USB 3.0 lead has plenty of length, and the black LED, and switch leads blend in and will reach their intended location.
