Inside the CMT330 Continued

The PSU cover isn't exactly a "cover" at this point, but we do see a pair of rails at the top, which will support the cover panel. At this time, we can see the PSU area at the back and the HDD cage, and the side panel has the FSP name pressed into the steel, while at the back there is a chunk missing to view the PSU sticker through.

The back of the chassis has more room at the top than we show here. We wanted to feature the multi-blade fan mounted here, with adjustment for height included. The eight ventilated slot covers are removable and have the mounting addressed externally.

Behind the motherboard tray, there is at a minimum, 20mm of room for wires or anything you may want to hide here. We also see an additional 2.5" mounting plate on the right, which holds two drives on it, and the hardware can be located in the hard drive cage.

The side rails of the HDD cage are made of steel with tabs on the inside to align the plastic trays into. The trays can be locked into the cage, and the trays will accept either a 3.5" drive or a 2.5" drive.

Since the side rail is thicker in the CMT330, the PSU must be installed from the back of the chassis, once the mounting plate is removed. The floor is well ventilated, and four raised bumps of steel have rubber pads on top for the PSU to rest upon.

Again, FSP does not offer long cables, but the length given is enough cable to make the connection to the motherboard cleanly. Everything is here from the front panel switch and LED leads, to the native USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and HD Audio connections.
