The Teardown

Opening the side panels reveals Lenovo is using a micro-ATX motherboard. The system uses an inverted-micro-ATX design where the GPU is upside down, and the CPU is on the bottom. The design has benefits for cooling as long as the GPU will get warmer than the CPU and if the CPU's heat can be isolated. Both those conditions are fulfilled here. The GPU takes in cold air from the top vents and exhausts hot air out the back. The CPU takes in cool air from inside the case and outputs hot air out the back; a shroud isolates the heat sink cooler's heat from the rest of the system.

On the other side of the case, we find the PSU. We can also see that there is space for another HDD or 3.5" drive.

The WIFI card is the Killer Wireless AC 1535, and the antennas for the WIFI card are integrated into the case.
