Inside the CMT330

Removing the bezel, we find that the wires are still attached, and behind the mesh intake, there is no filter material. The front of the chassis offers two fans placed near the bottom, with room above for another one, as long as you do not need the optical bays.

The inside of the chassis is laid out like many we see now, with a large open area at the top, and a PSU cover at the bottom. The instructions are floating around inside of the chassis, and all of the wires are tended to as not to break loose in transit.

Looking from the inside, we see that only one of the optical bays can be used out of the box. The top bay has a removable plate, but once removed can never allow for the third fan to be securely mounted again. The bay drive support is removable, and the motherboard tray has holes to mount devices from the right side of the case.

Closer to the bottom of the case we can see the pair of fans FSP installed. Also note that the PSU cover has a gap in the CMT330, which means radiators can pass through it. To the left, on the motherboard tray, we also see two of the locations for 2.5" drive installation.

The top of the CMT330 is identical to the CMT230, and so are its capabilities. Three 120mm fans or a 360mm radiator will fit, as well two 140mm fans or a 280mm radiator.

The motherboard tray is new to this chassis. There are eight holes of various sizes for the wires to pass through, a large CPU cooler access hole, and fourteen places to tie up the wires. Six of the nine standoffs are in place, and the holes are marked for each motherboard type.
