Inside the H700i Continued

The PSU cover is full length as to block the drive cage from view as well. The front edge of the cover offers a location for a 2.5" drive, as well as on the top, we see two more trays, which can go anywhere because they lock into the round holes on the PSU cover.

The back of the H700i has a single 140mm AER fan in place, which has also been pre-wired to the hub. The expansion slots have vented covers in them, all of them are replaceable, and use thumbscrews internally to lock them and cards into place.

Behind the motherboard tray, NZXT has done their best to deliver superb wire management with the use of the plastic guide to run the wires through, and six Velcro straps to tend the wires to the motherboard tray. We can see the large openi9ng for wires behind the red cover plate, and we also see another pair of locations for more 2.5" drives.

There are two trays for 3.5" drives, both of them are removable, and so is the base that they sit on. If this cage is removed, there is an optional location on the floor to mount a hard drive, totaling three HDD locations, and seven 2.5" drive locations.

Since NZXT has left the frame intact for more stability, you cannot load the PSU in from this side. It is also why we found the removable mounting plate on the back of the chassis, as that is how you slide the PSU into the H700i.

The cables that come with the H700i are not the longest we have seen, but it helps with wire management, and they are still long enough to make a solid connection. We see the USB 2.0 internal connection for the hub and the USB 3.1 Gen 1 internal connection at the left. In the middle is the HD Audio and USB 2.0 connection for the I/O panel. To the right we see the HDD LED, power LED, and power switch wires.
