Case Build & Finished Product
When the build is completed, more specifically to our build, the front of the chassis never changes in styling. The view has changed slightly, as you can see a bit of the SATA cable on the left, and the hoses for the H80i GT are plainly visible on the right.
We like the layout, with the video card cooler facing the window at the top, and the motherboard hidden behind it. While we did remove the stock cooling, we were able to get the AIO in place without issue. While things are tight inside, everything we normally use in a regular chassis fits, except for a standard-sized PSU.
The card fits well into the expansion slots, and the dust shield popped right into place. We were not supplied an SFX PSU, so we turned to our parts shelf and grabbed our Fractal Design unit which had everything we needed to get this build finished.
Behind the motherboard tray, there is not much to see other than bits of the PCB showing through the holes in it. We did run the SATA cable down the right side, and also used that gap to run the fan wiring for the AIO, everything else was contained on the other side.
All put back together, we stopped to take a picture. We adore the view found looking through the side panel, where everything is on full display. At this point, everything is installed and supported, and we have no qualms in running this chassis in this orientation.
Once we added some power, we see the blue power LED glowing, and the HDD activity LED which we missed is also blue. While the Zotac LED is now facing the CPU, we do still see the glow from it, but we can see the Corsair logo on the head unit plain as day.
For those who wish to set the Core G3 on a shelf under the TV, you can opt for the second set of feet. Of course, you should take the other set of feet off, which we did not, but in either orientation, the chassis is designed to grab air from the front so that it will remain cool inside, no matter the choice of how it sits.
