The Build and Finished Product
To slide in the optical drive I had to remove the front panel to accomplish this. The three mesh bays covers have to be removed from the inside of the bezel, and I was happy to see that none of the wiring is attached and this whole panel can be removed and rinsed to maintain its cleanliness.
With the drive in place it definitely breaks up the mesh that ran the entire front of this chassis. To be honest though, that bright red ring on the chassis does attract the eyes away from the drive, though.
I had no issues to speak of when installing my components. I got both drives in the ODD rack, but I left both sections of the HDD rack in to show there is plenty of room for most cards out of the box. I also like that I was able to get all of the wiring but the GPU power leads behind the motherboard tray for a clean finished product.
In the back, the rear I/O dust shield popped right into place, the video card slid right in and the screws hold it in securely, and the PSU falls right into place and screws in without a problem.
Behind the motherboard tray I didn't really have to try much at all. The front wiring is just long enough to get to the various parts of the motherboard, so they run where they can. As for the PSU wiring, I left most of it lose and just tied in the 8-pin lead as they offered the tie points right where it has to go.
As I put the panels back on the chassis I figured I would take a peek inside of the window to see what we have a view of. In reality, unless you really light the interior, there is barely a view given since the window is tinted so dark. You do get an idea of what is going on though, so at least there is that.
With the fact that the front chassis lights can be turned off with the switch next to the blue power LED, if you would like, for night time, you can only have this LED to deal with in an otherwise dark room.
With the light switch on, you do get a pretty decent amount of red lighting coming through the face of the chassis, but I don't think that the lighting of these fans is what is going to be annoying to most people.
