The motherboard tray offers four places to pass wires; there is a larger opening for CPU cooler backplates so that M-ITX motherboard have wire management too, and there are twelve tie points. We are sure if you follow our reviews that this looks familiar though.

The PSU cover is the same as the other cases too. There is a gap at the front to allow for a thin radiator to fit, some louvered fins, a hole with a grommet for wires to pass through, and on this stylized cover, there are optional locations for the SSD trays.

We find the clear fan hanging in the back, which is red LED lit when powered via a 3-pin fan connection. There is a knockout just below it for the HDMI cable to pass through, and we recommend breaking out the expansion slot covers you need as soon as possible, as they may not be able to be later, due to motherboard thickness.

Behind the motherboard tray, there is 20mm of clearance for wires and such, but the left side is a fair bit deeper. On the left, we get 30mm of room and is where the pair of 2.5" drive trays are placed. At the bottom, we find the HDD cage with two trays in it, and to the right, the PSU will slide in and rest on thick foam pads.

The front fan can be powered by the motherboard or fan controller or can be connected to the PSU via the 4-pin Molex plug. The front panel wires are all here; there is an HDMI cable with a cover protecting the connection, a native USB 3.0 cable, and an HD Audio lead. All of the wires are black to blend in and are long enough to get anywhere you need.
