Inside the Photios 250
Inside of the bezel, there is no dust filter present, nor is one found on the front of the chassis. The front I/O wires are not attached to the bezel, which is nice, and we can see that the fan locations are drilled for 120mm and 140mm fans.
The inside of the chassis is made with a PSU cover to separate the interior into two cooling zones. What we want to point out though, is that the manual is laid on the cover, the hardware is zip-tied to the ODD bays, and the wiring is bundled and attached to the motherboard tray from transportation.
At the top of the Photios 250, at the front, there is a pair of 5.25" drive bays, but only one can be used through the bezel. We also see that the front I/O wiring will not impede on the use of the bay, as it exits quickly, and runs behind the motherboard tray.
Below the ODD bays, there is an open area for cooling with fans or a radiator can hang here as well. The motherboard tray, just to the left of the clear 120mm fan, gives options to support a pair of 2.5" drives, and even a 3.5" drive could hang there instead.
The front I/O wiring is attached to the top panel of the Photios 250, so you may want to add in any optional cooling here before you wire the cables. The roof of the chassis is mostly cut away, and the sides are bent to accept a pair of 120mm fans, and can also support a 240mm radiator.
The motherboard tray has a medium sized hole for CPU cooler access but does offer seven places to pass wires. There are fifteen tie points, not all of the standoffs are installed, and there are three thin holes along the bottom of the tray.
