Case Build & Finished Product
We did have to stop part way through the build to show things a bit more clearly. At this point, we have installed the PSU and have also installed our full ATX motherboard. In this instance, the PSU blocks most of the top, so if we wanted to install a few drives, we would need to have them below the video card.
We used the Corsair H80i GT for demo purposes only as the radiator is too thick to use a fan, but it does show one way the top brackets can be used. We were also able to sneak the SSD in at the top by the power supply. We did not add fans for testing, but we did leave the top off and add a fan to the AIO on top of the brackets to offer some flow into this design. The card was within average temperatures as well, as it has plenty of passive access to fresh air through the left side of the case.
Aligning the tabs at the front of the panel, and carefully dropping it onto the chassis and screwing the top panel down offers us the same sleek simplicity that we liked in the beginning.
In the back, we found the PSU to align well, and it can be installed drawing fresh air from the side, or working double duty drawing air from within the system. The rear I/O cover snapped right in, and removing the cover and installing the video card is pretty simple as well.
At this point, the only indication of this machine now having power is that there is a white glow from the LED on the chassis, and we could just hear the video card fan. The chassis, as shipped, offers nothing as far as noise goes, so the amount of cooling and noise in this build is all up to the individual user.
