Inside the CMT510 RGB

Removing the front glass is a bit of a chore, as you have to reach inside the case and remove four thumbscrews, which is not all that easy to do, especially when PSU wires are involved later in life. However, removing it exposes the magnetic dust filter, and while we can see three fans installed, we can also see holes for 140mm fans.

Getting rid of the side panel is easy, as once the screws are out, the feet still hold the glass there until you tilt it outward and lift it off. Once gone, we see all of the room inside of the case. We also see that the wires are tied to the motherboard tray, and is also where the hardware is found as well.

Hanging on the front of the chassis are the three pre-wired RGB fans, which takes care of fan speed and lighting. Just to the right of the fans are the thumbscrews for the glass panel, and while these may be easy to get, imagine the ones on the other side of the case.

The motherboard tray comes to an end, with a gap for wires, and then another section of steel blocks the view past. Besides the cooler access hole, there are two more holes for wires to pass through, and eleven locations to strap wires to.

The fan in the back of the chassis is also pre-wired, with excess, so it should not interfere with motherboard installation. Since the cards are externally secured, all we see here is the threads from the screws which mount the cover plate.

The PSU cover has a large gap at the front of the case, which allows for fans and radiators to be placed there, without conflict. The side of the cover has the FSP name painted on it, while the top offers three holes to pass wires through, and a pair of trays to mount 2.5" drives to them.

Behind the motherboard tray, we find a hub near the top, which controls the RGB lighting, but is also a power source for the fans too. The steel panel to the left is where you can hang 3.5" or 2.5" drives, and at most, there is 17mm of room between the steel and the glass panel.

The chassis wires cover everything found on the front I/O panel, plus the 4-pin Molex connection which powers the hub. On the left, we have the switch and LED wires, then the native USB 3.0 cable, and another cable for HD Audio connectivity.
