Case Build & Finished Product
We could have a DVD or BR drive installed in the Photios 250, but since it is behind a door, the front of this chassis looks as good as it did when we first got it out of the box. Keep in mind, it does present itself a bit better once powered, but we are happy with the looks from this angle.
The motherboard is set down a touch to allow for water cooling potentially above it, but we chose to hang our AIO from the front. We did have to force the back of the chassis inward to mount the card, but there is virtually no sag in the card. The PSU cover does the job covering the mess, and we were able to run the GPU power leads through it.
The dust shield went in without much hassle, but we are over externally mounted expansion slots, we do prefer them to be inside. The PSU slid in under the cover and aligns perfectly with the chassis to be mounted on it.
There is much going on when it comes to wiring the Photios 250, and it shows with this mess of cables. Without a ton of room to bundle wires, we were left having to use nearly all of the tie points, and having wires running just about everywhere behind the scenes.
Once we put the panels back onto the Photios, we almost forget the struggles as we appreciate its looks and the view through the tempered glass panel. The tint of the glass has little effect on the view inside, and once it is powered on, the view is even better.
Now that the Photios has power and the motherboard has booted up, we see the blue power LED on top, but missed the blue HDD activity LED next to it. The front of the chassis shows the red LED fans to light through the gap in the plastic, and slightly illuminates the AZZA name there. On the inside, we can see the white lights of the AIO and the video card, which also happens to match the lighting on the AZZA plaque on the PSU cover.
