Case Build & Finished Product
Since there are no concessions for external drive bays, the front of the chassis does not change from beginning to end. The solid look of the glass is sleek and elegant, but we do wish there was a clear area at the top to allow the LED EVGA name behind it to be seen in the DG-77.
The AIO gave us no issues when installing it, and the motherboard slid right into position as well. Connecting the wires is all fine and dandy, but the GPU mounting in the vertical orientation left the video card leaning and had no support.
The first, and biggest issue is that when using the mounting locations, they are angled as they rise to meet the PCB. Look under it though. You can see how badly the bottom PCB is flexing to allow the riser card to be screwed in.
Due to the bad arrangement with mounting the riser below, the screw holes are not even close to being right. It appears that the card must be screwed to the plate outside of the case, and then slid in through the back, because putting a screw and the adapter in is not easy to do, nor does it align.
The dust shield went in as expected, and the PSU installation was a breeze too. The video card though, it is inset into the case and is in no way flush with the back of the chassis, and due to our issues, we can see it just leaning over and putting pressure on the slot and the tab of the video card.
Much of the wiring is easy to maintain and keep out of view. However, there is the HD Audio cable running diagonally across the back, complicating the use of one of the drive trays. We feel more length to this cable is the simple solution, because as it is, it barely reaches, and nearly had us running it in front of the motherboard.
Once shop is closed up, after battling the installation and issues we saw there, we are pleased with the look of the chassis. While it may not have been the easiest chassis to work with, the principle of it all is on point, and does look pretty darn good.
Once powered, the power switch glows the same color as the EVGA on the PSU cover, and we can see all of the components. What we do not see is the EVGA on the front of the case, which is glowing behind the glass. There is software for control of the lighting and other K-Boost features, and when the button is pressed, it is also backlit to show the mode is enabled.
