Xclio Touch 787 Super Tower Chassis Review (Page 5)

Inside the Xclio Touch 787 Super Tower Chassis


On the inside of the 787 you are hit first by the large hardware box strapped to the motherboard tray, and the PSU strap and bright colored wiring at the bottom of the case. Then as your eyes move right, you see the optical drives, but likely, you aren't quite sure what is going on for hard drive bays yet.


There are four 5.25" bays in the 787, three of them have tool-less locks and the bottom one will require screws. To be honest, the top bay is pretty much a wash as the wiring from the touch panel blocks a drive from going in. On the lighter side, shorter bay devices will work fine there.


The hard drive area consists of a dual stack cage on the floor for a pair of 2.5" drives and a pair of wings. The "wing" as I am calling it allows drives to install on their sides horizontally. These can hole either a pair of 3.5" drive or a pair of 2.5" drives each.


Removing three screws and releasing a latch at the top, the wing comes out and down, supported by the plastic legs at this end, and the wire which I didn't have supporting this. These wings also sport rubber grommets to minimize vibrations.


The motherboard tray offers plenty of places to tie wiring behind it, and five larger wire management holes around it. The large CPU access hole will work for most boards, but the bottom doesn't go as low as others I have seen in the past.


I thought this was a good time to look at the top and rear of the chassis from the inside. Again the fans all have grills covering them and these three 120mm fans plus the one in the front are all controlled with the second box like what we found on the door.


From the factory, all of the wiring from the top of the case is wrapped together behind the tray and just dumps into the lower section of the chassis. Here there is everything from the power and control wire for the fan controller to the power, reset, LED, USB 2.0 and Audio connections just sort of spilling out.


There is a roughly 20mm of room behind the tray, depending on where you measure, but for wiring purposes, this is all you get. The way the chassis is designed most of the wiring tends to want to naturally hide between the two hard drive wings anyways.
