Inside the Alpha

VIEW GALLERY - 38 IMAGES

Inside of the bezel, where we would assume the air to flow into the chassis, is blocked with white plastic to aid the effects of the lighting. The front of the chassis keep a hold of the I/O panels, is wide open for optional fans, and we can also see the strip of LEDs running down the middle of it.

Our first look inside shows that Raidmax is following what it popular right now. The alpha comes with a two-chamber design, where the top is wide open, and the bottom is covered with a PSU cover.

There is a single ODD bay in the Alpha, and it comes with a tool-free mechanism on this side, while the other requires screws to secure the device. The bay can be removed, as there are four screws under the bezel, and a pair on the motherboard tray, and removing them allows this to come out of the chassis.

The front of the chassis is wide open. No fans are shipped to the front of the Alpha, but there is room for three 120mm fans or a pair of 140mm fans. Looking toward the bottom, we see a gap in the PSU cover, which allows for a thin radiator and fan to still fit.

When it comes to the top of the chassis, is seems we only were given part of the story. Unimpeded by the ODD bay is room for a pair of 120mm or 140mm fans, but should you choose to eliminate the ODD bay, you can add another 120mm or 140mm fan.

The motherboard tray has a huge opening for CPU cooler access, two holes at the top to pass wires through, and a long covered slit down the right side for the rest of the wires. To help with wire management, there are twelve locations to tie wires to, but not a single grommet to be found.
