The Build and Finished Product Continued
Or so I thought! While I was positively under the 100mm height clearance I didn't even think of the width of the cooler. The nice thing about using this cooler in instances like these though, is that it has three other mounting options for me to try.
Getting ready to now close up shop and see what the chassis does in sound levels and heat levels, we see that the front of the PC-V355 takes on no changes, except a bit of oil from my skin, as these aluminum cases are very well known to do.
Everything is wired nice and easily even with the motherboard in the chassis during the process. What does worry me a bit is the PSU. I used a large one to test out the strength and you can see it is failing. When I lift or let lose the PSU, you can see the top and back of the chassis flexing under the weight of this unit.
In the back the PSU did align great, even if the mounting area is a bit weak for heavier units. As for the rear I/O shield, the card and the motherboard tray, they all went is without issue, it was my lack of foresight that led to the cooler issue.
With everything now ready to go, you can see the 8-pin EPS cable lies nicely and out of the way as well as does the Molex run across the front. There is quite a bit of room above the CPU cooler and if you don't mind the noise, an additional fan here would definitely help things.
Stepping back a bit you can now see the PC-V355 in all its glory, with the left now holding the optical drive. The doors snap back into place very securely with the pins and latch system in place here.
Adding power to the PC-V355 the power button stayed lit with the blue backlighting. I know I hooked up a HDD activity connector, but I never saw anything change or flash denoting the drive was booted. In the end you are left with the same sleek looking, brushed aluminum goodness that we started with.
