Case Build & Finished Product
From the front, if it weren't for a bit of the tubes and a hint of the 240-pin cable on the other side, the Orbit-Z1 would look identical to what it did when we started. Even if you do not appreciate the design, we will say this view does improve when lit.
Rather than to hide the SSD behind the motherboard tray, we opted to use one of the wire management holes and have it visible through the window. Our AIO fits without issue, but we did have to stick to an FE card. The motherboard was also tricky to install, as the hole for the fan wire was used to pass the 8-pin through, and it caused misalignment and is why we would suggest a flat cable PSU in this case.
At the back, we snapped out the expansion slot covers we needed to use, but with only two screws for the expansion slots, we used them for the cards support, not to cover the gap above it. The PSU fits well at the bottom, and the dust shield went in easily; as long as you keep the fan wire out of the way.
Wiring the chassis just to this extent took way too much time in our opinion. With eight wires to run to the hub, the five leads from the front of the case, and with only basic cables used for the build, we found the wire management holes to be small, and the tie points to be lacking, not only in location but the amount of them.
Even though many have gone to tempered glass at this point, we can appreciate that the side panel window is clear and free from any tint. This allows for an unimpeded view of the interior and is likely the best feature of this design.
We chose blue to showcase the chassis and fan RGB LEDs. The LED button works them all in unison, and cycles through options of color, or turns them off. The cycle of options includes a slow pulse of shifting RGB colors, and pulsing light in solid colors of red, blue, green, yellow, purple, or teal. You also have solid color choices of red, green, blue, purple, teal, yellow, white, and one last option is a cycle of RGB colors which is fast in its color changes.
