The Build and Finished Product
The build went very smooth and there really weren't any problems. Keeping things tidy is another story. There isn't a lot of room behind the drive bays where the motherboard tray meets it. This means if you even want it to look this clean, both some creativity and a better PSU choice than mine comes into play. There was plenty of length in the case cabling, as I was able to hide almost all of those. Running the power lines is another story. There are no holes in the tray to run them behind it, so you are left running them up the front and doing what you can to keep them out of the way. On a side note, look at the coolers position on this motherboard. Had I used a typical tower cooler, you can see where that top fan could become an issue.
With all the pieces in place, the rear of the chassis fills right up and looks clean in its finished product.
There isn't much to see on the back side. I was only able to route some fan wires through here to keep them from cluttering the front. Other than that, I hid all the extra wires at the bottom of the HDD bays. The large opening made wiring easy, but I would have liked a couple of holes in the tray to attempt to allow me to hide a bit more.
With bright light in the room, it is hard to see through the mesh and look at your components. I wanted to point out that the fan placement is a superb location. It supplies both my GPU and CPU with fresh air, but depending on the board layout, it can even add a bit of flow to the memory and Mosfets.
Powered up, there isn't a flood of LEDs coming from the front as the front I/O panel is up top, but even then, they aren't all that bright. Under power you are left with a similar view aside from the slight glow of any other LEDs shining from within.
Once the fan is powered up and the glow of blue LED is cast over the interior, it is a fair bit easier to see the components through the mesh. You can see the placement of the fan for my m-ATX motherboard is a bit low and mainly supplies the GPU with air, but on a standard ATX or even E-ATX the parts covered by the fan will change.
