Case Build and Finished Product
We do not use an ODD in our builds, but we do have one to test stealth doors and covers. We found this cover to work right every time, but we cannot vouch for the longevity of the springs at this time. We do, however, like the aggressive yet sophisticated sort of appeal that the Z11 Neo puts off.
While we did not have to, we already had the cages out, so we left them there. Everything went right into place as expected, there were no hassles installing the AIO, the card went in without forcing the back inwards, and most of the wiring except the Molex lead for the side panel fans is well hidden.
We had no issues snapping the top on and off when needed, and we did remove the rear fan and move it there. The dust shield and the AIO almost fall into place, we addressed the card already, and the PSU fit like a glove with the holes all lined up.
We wired as much back here as we could, and found that we had no issues with the panel fitment after all of this is tended to and held into place. There are also plenty of tie points to clean it all up, and still take advantage of the SSD bay.
As we do, we package everything back up and step back to take it all in. While some may not like the venting and angular design, we really dig the automotive inspired looks of it, and its aggressive lines and angles.
When powered up, the stock fans are audible and deliver 36dB of noise to the room from a foot away. At this time, we find the power button is lit blue, the fan at the front shines through the mesh in the ducts, and the top fan glows through the vents and floods the interior. There is also a tiny slit near the top of the bezel that will flash red occasionally with HDD activity.
