The Build and Finished Product
I think I may have mentioned that the top is fully removable. Once the doors are off and the front bezel is off, there are just four screws to remove and the expanse of aluminum lifts right off. This gives you access to wire the PSU if it is modular like mine, or even to do some plumbing with a bay reservoir.
The front of the PC-100 now has the rear I/O in place and the graphics cards ready to be connected and have the wiring routed through the side or around the back of the motherboard tray.
Looking into the PC-100 with all the gear installed, it looks like I am using most of the room inside. In actuality there is a ton of room behind the hard drives that at this point with just an ATX motherboard installed is going vastly unused.
In the back the only change is there is now a PSU installed in the top of the chassis. On a completely different subject, to remove these fans for cleaning, you have to remove the grills before the fans can slide up and out of the aluminium key-ways.
The only thing I really found the need to wire behind the tray was the front fans. This was more just to have something to do with the excess wire other than just setting it on the floor of the case.
Now the PC-100 is all back in one piece and ready for some power and a fair bit of testing. As you can see, or not see, there isn't much of a change to the chassis with just the DVD drive being the only notable difference.
Then we have the southbound end of a northbound case. I just wanted to be sure you seen this slick looking chassis from every angle before we get to my personal feelings on the PC-100.
I waited until now to show the door on the front of the chassis. Reason being is I wanted something in there to look at, because now it is pretty obvious why the access is given in this area.
When power is added to the build inside of the PC-100, the only lighting you will see long term is the blue glow of the power switch. The switch to the left is for the reset, but is also backlit and flickers to the beat of the hard drive in the unit.
