AZZA Photios 250 Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the Photios 250 is made of matte black plastic and is angled to either side from the high point down the middle of the bezel. An angled line crosses the bezel, which is where the AZZA name is and is where the steel mesh intake starts down the left half.
The angle which breaks the bezel design is also where the door stops. This door is magnetically attached to the front bezel and offers a place to add in a 5.25" device, and the triangular shape below it is just a design element.
The top of the chassis is just as aggressively styled, and the cover mimics what was seen on the front. This is also where the front I/O panel is located, with the bright red power button, USB, and HD Audio connections, with the LEDs and small reset button in another line.
We also find a second tempered glass panel on the top of the chassis, but we are not so sure why it is here. It could offer a view down into the chassis, or, more common would be the view of a fan or an AIO radiator.
The left side of the chassis is made of tempered glass, which is slightly tinted and uses thumbscrews to hold the glass to the chassis. However, there are no supports in the holes, so when the screws come out, the glass will fall to the table or floor. Keep that in mind.
The back of the chassis has some passive ventilation at the top of the steel frame, with the rear I/O and exhaust fan just below it. There are seven expansion slots, which have a cover over the externally accessed screws, leaving the bottom wide open for the PSU.
The right side of the Photios 250 is a well-fitting steel side panel. There is not any form of deflection in the panel to add wire management space, just a flat expanse of steel held to the chassis with a pair of thumbscrews at the back.
Under the chassis, we find chunky plastic feet placed in the corners for support, and there is a slide-out dust filter under the PSU. Near the front, we find passive venting for the HDD cage, and it appears that there are holes in the floor for drive mounting.
