Looking at the front of the CMT510, all we see is the panel of dark tinted glass. There is no visible frame around it, it breathes from all sides of the glass, and the only thing breaking up the sleek tower appeal, is seeing the thumbscrews on the side panels.

Just behind the glass, we locate the front I/O panel. In it, there is a pair of USB 3.0 ports on the left, followed by a pair of HD Audio jacks. We then run into a pair of LEDs, and a section housing both the power button, as well as the RGB, LED button.

The top of the chassis is steel and offers a single fan location near the back of the chassis. From this angle, we can also gain perspective on the gap between the front glass. While not that wide, it can draw from all sides at once, which is less restrictive than slots down the sides in a framed bezel design.

The left side of the CMT510, is all glass, and the feet help to hold the panel in place, but the thumbscrews lock it into place. The edges of the glass are painted to eliminate view of the frame, while still offering an unimpeded view inside of the case.

Around the back of the CMT510, the rear I/O area and exhaust fan are placed near the top. The expansion slots use ventilated covers, are accessed externally, and rather than more ventilation, the cover panel is solid steel. The bottom is where the PSU slides into the chassis, and the mounting plate is in with the hardware.

Looking into the right side of the chassis, we see slightly less, as this panel does offer some level of tint. We can still see through it, which means you may want to work a bit harder on wire management.

The feet which support the CMT510 are as far to the sides as they can be, and all have rubber pads on them. There is a dust filter under the PSU at the back, as well as one near the front for some passive ventilation offered there.
