Inside the Photios 250 Continued

The PSU cover is squared off in its design, and the left side of it has a large plaque with the AZZA name in it. This will light up if powered. The top of the PSU cover has vent holes in two locations, one for the HDD cage, and the other if the PSU is installed with the fan on top.

The back of the chassis has a black 120mm fan without LEDs, but like the front fan, it requires a 4-pin Molex to power it. The expansion slots covers do not have screws in them currently, and only the top slot is replaceable, the other six break out of the chassis.

Behind the motherboard tray, we find a half of an inch for wire management. Under the CPU cooler access hole, you could mount a 2.5" drive there, making for a total of three locations so far for SSDs.

Under the PSU cover, there is an HDD cage which is not removable. The cage will house a pair of 3.5" drives but is also drilled for 2.5" drives, but it will limit what PSUs can be used in the Photios 250.

The PSU sits on four raised sections of steel, and we like the slot style ventilation offered under it. The PSU can be 210mm in length with the wires attached, and from the mess of wires coming out of the AZZA plaque, there is a Molex connector at the end of it.

While the pair of USB 2.0, HD Audio, and the native USB 3.0 leads are sleeved black, but the button and LED wires are not. We can also see the Molex connection from the AZZA plaque, but we did not put the pair from the fans into this image.
