Inside the Signature Series S10 Continued
Below the separator plate, near the front of the chassis, we find this five bay rack for 2.5" drives. You have to unclip the support bar to access these four bays, but there is no hardware needed to mount drives here, simply slide them in, and the bar holds the drives into the slots.
At the back, again below the plate, we find room for long power supplies. The floor is ventilated to allow a fan down orientation of the unit, and we also find there are two support rails to keep the PSU level. To get the PSU into this area, you simply slide it in from either side and screw it into place through the back.
Working our way back up, we are now looking at the rear of the chassis. The 120mm fan has its power lead already ran behind the motherboard tray, and as to the ten expansion slot covers, they are held into place with hex-head screws that are also used to secure cards into this area.
Using the same style tab at the top allows the right side panels to open, and again the larger panel rests on pins and can be removed. The thinner section at the front allows access to wiring all of the drive bays with a pass-through below the gap on the chassis. Behind the motherboard tray, we see that it is inset, but unlike the 800D which originated the center plate design, Antec cut out a bit of it at the front to ease cable management.
To help ease fan wiring and power management, Antec includes this ten-fan hub. This is powered via a Molex 4-pin that plugs into the bottom and delivers full power to any fan attached to this hub.
There is a thumbscrew that needs to be removed, and in doing so, the fan mounting plate can be slid out of in front of the 2.5" drive rack. This plate will only fit a 120mm fan, but does offer a cooling option if the 2.5" drives are not SSDs.
In the front, under the 3.5" drive rack, there is a plate that by pressing a tab, unlocks and can be lifted out of the bottom of the chassis. Here, though, Antec does include a fan to cool this area. Again, this has to be a 120mm fan attacked to the fan plate.
The included wiring is all blacked out with rubber sleeving on the dual native USB 3.0 connections. The fan leads and the front LED and switch wiring is made of black wiring, and even the dual connection HD Audio/AC'97 lead is also done up in black. There is one drawback here, though - the leads are not very long.
