Inside the Alpha 330 Continued
There is a single 120mm fan found at the back of the case, and it can be powered by either a 3-pin fan header or by the 4-pin Molex connection tail coming from it. The typical eight expansion slots are accessed internally, while the +2 section to the left is accessed externally. Sadly, though, no riser card is provided.
Behind the motherboard tray to the glass is 30mm of space, but that is encroached upon with the three 2.5" drive locations on the left via the fold-out bracket, as well as the two single 2.5" drive tray under the access hole. We found the hardware and the manual as well, tucked into the HDD cage.
The HDD cage hidden under the PSU cover is removable and provides room for a pair of 3.5" or 2.5" drives. Not only does the cage come out, but so do all of the accompanying spacers and plates. Doing so offers more room for the PSU and extra wires, but you can have an AIO in the front and retain the drive bays.
Use of a long PSU is of little concern in the Alpha 330. The side rail of the chassis is lowered to allow the PSU to slide into the chassis, and it rests upon rubber pads on either side of the case.
Hidden behind the SSD tray at the left side, we located the chassis wiring. These cables should be sufficient for various motherboards, but header location will determine how they need to be routed. There is the native USB 3.0 cable, a ninety-degree USB 3.1 Type-C connection, an HD Audio connection, and a single wire for the power button.
