Black-Series Tower 21 Fit and Finish - Continued


With all the innards in place, we can get a look around the exterior of the chassis. I had a couple blue LED fans to accent the front panel, so I installed those, the optical drive and the power switch. The included nut and bolt system for the fan installation is a bit of a pain in the u know what, once the chassis is assembled. Plan ahead and add them before you place on the front of the case, it will make it so much easier.


Careful how you run your wires or tie them up! The motherboard tray has no room behind it and we have yet to install the covering clear acrylic.


The chassis really fills out and every angle of the included parts is visible. Just under the PSU you can see my rats nest of wires. I wish I had had a few 80mm fans on hand, but to be honest, who really uses 80mm fans these days? Most chassis' are built with 120mm fans in mind, but I understand possibly the room isn't there to make the case structurally sound with so little material here.


Closing things up, as I am pretty sure I built it right. I did only use two screws in the clear acrylic for now, as anything can happen and I can always add them later. I was a bit disappointed here, too; the holes are not threaded and threading this acrylic is no easy task by hand.


The front, I did the same thing; just added two screws, as it will soon be disassembled, either for another rig, or to be torn down to save a bit of room for now.


With my more basic build, you cannot see much change once it got powered up. With the doors all closed and under power I see it more as a presentation piece, or the ultimate for displaying your PC building handy work. Some UV lights to make the front and rear react with the right cooling loop could look fantastic in here.


The front when under power can look quite attractive, as the blue LED's even accentuate the front panel. While the lights aren't actually in the front panel, they do make the edges seem to glow.


Here is the angle from which most of your friends will see it, as I'm sure if they get too close they will most likely get their hands slapped. Seriously, though, with the right lighting, even on air, this case is definitely something I have never had the pleasure of building before.
