Sentey SS6-2440 Slim Series Micro-ATX Tower Chassis Review

Inside the SS6-2440




After removing the panels, we can get a great look inside of this chassis. Without windows, the wiring is just left hanging from the top and is dropped through the access hole in the motherboard tray, and is also where we find the back of paperwork and hardware.





In the front of the SS6-2440, we are given one optical bay, one 3.5" bay below it, and also a single 2.5" bay with a red tray that slides said drive in and out of the steel cage.




The thicker bit of steel is the motherboard tray that cuts the air flow of the front LED fan in half so some goes above it and below it. The cage we see beneath the tray is for a pair of 3.5" drives, it is riveted into the chassis, and is why there is a PSU length limitation.




Here we have the motherboard tray in its entirety. There is a large access hole just in case you have to swap coolers after the board is in place, there are a couple of wire management holes, and it even offers four wire tie points to help maintain wiring from just flopping around and getting caught up in other components.




The back of the chassis, above the motherboard tray is where we find the second fan, but this time it is not LED lit when powered. We also see that there are three break out expansion slot covers, and the first of them is removed. Mounting for these slots is then handled externally under the removable cover.




Still at the back of the chassis, but this time under the motherboard tray, we find the location for the PSU. There are rubber feet to support it, but keep in mind, you have to think small when it comes to the PSU to fit both the unit in through this opening, and leaving room for the wiring before you run into the HDD rack.




We didn't figure you needed a view of the motherboard tray from this side of the chassis, so we just zoomed in on the bays again. This time it is to show you that there is a tool-free lock installed for the ODD bay, so screws are not mandatory for mounting it.




The chassis wiring is the full rainbow of colors, and without a window it doesn't really matter, although there is no added cost to provide them in black. It covers everything from the switch and LED wiring, on through the card reader single USB connection, USB 2.0 and 3.0 connections, as well as the one for HD Audio.




The front bezel of the chassis pops right off by tugging at the bottom of it, and we can see this is how you access the front fan and slide in the drives up top. The bezel offers a spring loaded door for the ODD bay, and it appears that the mesh is removable to clean it.




The top is also removable, but there are just wiring holes offered at the front, and is why we say the top venting is more for show that real purpose. Also, all of the wiring is connected to the top panel, so if you plan to remove it, do it before wiring the chassis internally.
