Inside the Crystal 570X RGB Continued
The back of the chassis is not shipped with a fan to exhaust this tower, so unless you plan to use a 120mm AIO, you will need to add a bit to the price to fill this location. The expansion slots are vented to allow the front fans to pass through the back as well as through the honeycomb areas, but to ease installation, the slots use thumbscrews.
Behind the motherboard tray, we can see the hardware box filling the top 3.5" drive rack, with another just below it. To the right of them, we find a raised section of removable steel, which is made to hide the majority of the wires from view. Beneath the large CPU cooler access hole, there are two plastic trays found here to fill with 2.5" drives, and all of the drive bays are removable as well.
Part of the RGB fan system is this larger hub. This is where the wire at the top comes in from the fan controller, and down the left the SP120 RGB fans come connected. You can also add three more fans to this device and have a total of six fans working in sync with each other.
The second part of the RGB control system is the SP Lighting Controller box. If you were to use this setup outside of a Corsair case, this is how you would change speed, color, and modes of the lighting, but these controls are housed in the front I/O for easy access in this 570X RGB.
At the bottom, this is where you need to slide the PSU into the chassis. We can see the LED panel on the far edge of the cover, and we also see only two rubber pads on the floor to support the PSU, as further back, the PSU sits on raised steel bumps.
All of the wiring is black, but there is a lot of it to tend to. We can see the native USB 3.0 cable and the HD Audio cable to the left. In the middle, we find the three 3-pin fan leads we need to power, and we also see the leads for the buttons and LEDs found in the front I/O. We only managed to get one of the SATA power connections in this image, but there is one for the RGB fan hub, and another used to power the logo on the front and the name on the PSU cover.
