FSP CMT210 Mid-Tower Chassis

The front of the CMT210 is aggressively designed with all of the angles surrounding the large mesh center section. There is a new FPS logo used on the front of the chassis, and the six slits on either side of the bezel are where the color options are to change the look of this case.

At the top of the front bezel, we locate the front I/O panel. From left to right, we see the USB 2.0 port, a pair of HD Audio jacks, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a reset button, HDD activity LED, and the power button. Also notice, behind the panel, all we see is a flat expanse of steel on the top.

The left side of the CMT210 has a side panel which aligns well with the frame of the chassis, it is bumped outward in the middle, and has a medium sized, clear, side panel window.

At the back of the chassis, we see that the rear I/O and exhaust fan have been pushed up to the top, just above the externally accessed, seven expansion slots. Below the expansion slots is a large hole which is where the PSU is to be mounted.

The right side of the CMT210 is near identical to what we saw on the left side, just that this time there is no window. However, the bump in the panel will make it easier to wire behind the motherboard tray and no cause conflict with the removal or replacement of this panel.

Under the chassis, we find hard rubber feet used to support this tower. At the back is a removable dust filter for the PSU, but it is not easily accessed with the tower upright. Near the front of the chassis, we can see four rivets which hold in the HDD cage, which means it is not removable.
