BitFenix Ghost Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Inside the Ghost Continued




The motherboard tray has a really large access hole, four large wire management holes, and raised threaded bumps as risers, except for the center one. That is a peg to help hold the motherboard in place.




At the bottom, there will be a PSU on the left, but if it is short enough, you also will have the option to install a 120mm or 140mm fan in the floor in front of it.




At the back you can see the 120mm Spectre exhaust fan just above the three knock outs for water cooling. Then you see the bay covers that just clip in and don't need screws to keep them in place.




There is roughly one half of an inch inset from the inside of the door panel to the back side of the motherboard tray. This isn't a huge amount of room, but it is enough to get the job done cleanly, but keep in mind there are no windows or vents to see inside anyway, so the wiring can easily be run up front as well.




There is a SATA data cable and a SATA power plug for the S4 that aren't in the image, but what is contains the F_Panel connections, USB 2.0, HD Audio, and the USB 3.0 connection with a 2.0 adapter on it.




Remember when I said I heard some rattling? Well, here is why. The frame at the bottom is broken cleanly into two pieces, and all of the pins and clips that hold the front bezel in place are sheared off. The funny thing about all of this is that the packaging shows no signs of such abuse to have occurred.
