Inside the P7-C0 Continued
The back of the chassis is the one place you will find a pre-installed fan, this 3-pin powered 120mm one. Since the expansion slots are accessed on the outside, Aerocool is left with no option for passive ventilation next to it, due to the use of the sliding steel cover plate.
Behind the scenes, we see that the left side of the case is open and deep, which allows for excess wires, but is also where the two SSD trays are screwed into place. As for the right side, clearance is not as much, but there is still plenty of room to run the 8-pin lead to the top, and not affect door placement. The bottom is open and is where we located the box containing the hardware as well as the manual.
The HDD cage uses steel trays with rubber grommets to be used for 3.5" drives, while 2.5" drives screw directly onto the steel. Two drives can be placed here, or if you need more room for the PSU or other goodies, the right-side wall of the cage is removable, which opens up this area completely.
The floor of the chassis offers wide slots for the PSU to draw air through, and the PSU will rest on plastic legs with rubber pads on top of them. There is a fair bit of room for longer power supplies as it is, but you may want to pre-wire modular units before you attempt to slide them in here.
The wires, which start at the front I/O panel are long in the P7-C0 and have no issues reaching their intended targets on the motherboard. There is a SATA power connection for the LED system, just the HDD activity, and power switch connections, but there is a native USB 3.0 lead and the HD Audio lead as well.
