The Xclio Touch 787 Super Tower Chassis

You don't quite get a feel for the lean forward from the front, so let's cover the rest. On both sides there is plastic framing around the individual louvers on the front bezel. Each one has an up arrow on it to signify that they just simply lift up and then out of the way. On one louver is the Xclio badge, but this can be moved or removed if you want later.

Gently setting the case on its face, you can get a good look at the top of the 787. At the top, or back as it should be, there is a pair of 120mm fan attached to the roof. In front of that is a plastic piece the raises the top of the chassis enough for the touch panel and front I/O.

Figured I should move in a little closer so you can have a better look at the connectivity of the front I/O panel and what the eight touch buttons are for.

Looking at the 787 from the side you now see that aggressive lean I was alluding to earlier. In the removable side panel there is a very large mesh insert, that in the Touch 787 is fully stocked with six 120mm fans lit with blue LEDS.

The rear of the chassis has the typical layout for the components and includes eight expansion slots and four unused grommets to pass water cooling tubing through. You can also see the included USB 3.0 is external as it hangs from the fifth grommet.

The right side panel is pretty basic, but the Touch 787 does offer room for active cooling to be installed behind the CPU socket, or left empty, still offers passive cooling to that area behind the motherboard.

Under the chassis there are dust filters for both the PSU area, but for the whole rest of the ventilated floor. In the four corners there are large round plastic feet with rubber pads on them for better traction. The clips near the right and left edges are used with a wire on the hard drive racks I will show you later.

Before we look inside, I thought the indie of the door was worth a peek. Right up front you see that there is a Molex to power these fans and a 2-pin to control them from the chassis. I do like that the six fans installed also have plastic grills so that wiring doesn't get into these fans.

Looking a bit closer, we can see that these six fans fill up the control units fan connections. The blue and white wires are the signal wires, while the four at the bottom are to supply these fans with clean power at the source.
