Inside the DG-77

We took the glass panel off and set it aside, which exposed access to the black dust filter. Hanging inside of the case is a pair of 120mm fans, and there are slots for 140mm fans too. EVGA also places their name at the top of the front bezel, and while it is not able to be seen through the glass, we can only assume this comes into play with the lower-end models.

Inside of the chassis, we notice immediately that this looks just like the CMT510 interior, but with a different PSU cover. Everything being white, black cables will stick out like a sore thumb, and to keep things looking great, you will need to take some time with wire management.

EVGA installed a pair of Power Logic PLA12025S12L fans, which are powered with 3-pin connectors. Fans are far enough from the I/O wires not to be an issue, and while we can add a third 120mm fan to the stack, the PSU cover is notched to allow fat radiators in there as well.

The top cover pulls from the case, and under it, we see a few things worth mentioning. There is a fan installed near the back of the chassis, and the fan layout matches that found in the front of the case. The last thing we noticed is that the front I/O stays with the case.

Flipping the chassis onto its roof, and looking up by the I/O panel, we see a bonus addition to the DG-77. This is an RGB control center for the chassis. It allows any RGB device to be added into the loop, and with K-Boost software, they are all controlled at once.

The motherboard tray is broken up into two sections, with a thin gap between them to pass wires through it. The left side has one hole at the top for wires, a much larger hole to access back plates, and there are seven wire tie points. The right side has a hole at the top, three conventional tie points, and both panels have tabs poking through them to support storage devices.

The PSU cover is opened wide at the front of the chassis, but the entire side of the cover is solid, blocking all behind it from view. The top also has an unusual mesh design added to it, there are four holes to put wires through, and the side of the PSU cover has an RGB LED EVGA built into it.

The back of the case, we are showing it from the outside, because we have removed the plastic cover this time. The fan hanging at the top is the same as the other three, and the expansion slots are accessed externally. Again, without the cover, it is identical to the CMT510 at this time.

Behind the motherboard, we found the hardware, which is taped to the panel. There are two larger trays on the left for 3.5" or 2/6" drives, but the pair to the right are for 2.5" drives only.

The PSU will slide in from the back, so be careful not to catch the wire connected to the back of the EVGA name which lights up. The PSU will rest upon four rubber pads and can draw air through the floor, or from above.

To power the RGB LED control panel, EVGA uses a SATA power connector for that, and the USB 2.0 cable is used to control it. In the other section, which comes from the front I/O panel, we have the HD Audio, native USB 3.0, and the switch and LED leads.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
