Inside the Gaming Black 707
The bezel can be removed by releasing six tabs inside of the chassis. We noticed that the wiring and I/O are attached to the bezel, and we do not see any sort of an intake dust filter.
After our first look inside of the 707, everything appears as expected. However, the more you look, the more your eyes are drawn to the green of the ODD bays and the beige wiring that seems really out of place.
There are four ODD bays, but the lowest one does not pass through the bezel, so there is no need for the bright green tool-free pins in that bay. There is also no bay adapter included to hide a 3.5" or 2.5" drive there.
The HDD rack is made for both 3.5" and 2.5" drive installations, and it will hold up to eight drives. The cages do come out in two parts, but the wall where the clips are installed for an optional fan will always stay in the chassis.
Here is what you can have if you opt to remove the bays all together. The side wall that has to stay in the chassis has a large cutaway at the bottom. The cutaway allows for a thicker radiator and fans to go into the floor without the lower cage in the case, and still using the upper five bays.
Even though the ODD bays do not come out, the offset of the mesh top panel allows for a thick, triple radiator to go in between the sides of the bays while still clearing everything, including the front panel wiring.
The motherboard tray has a huge access hole, and since it takes Micro-ATX, ATX, and even E-ATX motherboards, we can see why the grommets are shifted so far to the right. Even though there are holes for all motherboard types, there are no markings to guide you.
The main floor of the chassis is well ventilated for the optional fan locations and the PSU. If you do not use a fan here, there is no real limit to the PSU length. Once the PSU is screwed in, the support rails will hold it sufficiently.
While the front pair of fans uses three-pin connections for power, the exhaust fan has a Molex for power. The exhaust fan is clear with red LEDs. As for the expansion slots, we are provided with thumbscrews to secure our cards.
There is roughly 25mm of space to pass all of the wiring through between the tray and the door panel. There is a bit more space behind the HDD cage, or next to the ODD rack, but there should be no issues fitting what is necessary back here.
At the top left side we can see the fan wiring from the intake fans; these fans use three-pin connections, and they can be daisy chained together. The HD audio and USB 2.0 leads are beige, and the LED and switch wiring is white and multi-colored. We like the compact USB 3.0 connection.
